We declared Giants closer Brian Wilson officially insane last year, but that still didn’t make his ESPYs outfit any less shocking. Wilson wore a spandex tuxedo and accessorized with a cane and jewelry (see more pics here).
Wilson talked about the outfit with Double X Sports’ Marty Caswell and explained that the purpose was to make some his close friends laugh. He added that he doesn’t care about the negative reaction he receives for his clothing (duh). My favorite response he gave was when he was asked if the outfit was comfortable.
“Yeah, it was extremely comfortable,” Wilson said. “It was like being naked, and I’m fine with that.”
Given Wilson’s obsession with The Machine, it’s no surprise to hear him say he’s fine with being naked. Now if you’re wondering whether Wilson plans on getting his beard sponsored a la Troy Polamalu, he said no.
Of course not. It’s not like he grew an absurdly long beard for attention or anything.
Anyway, here’s the video of Wilson’s interview with Caswell:
