Newton completed 15-of-19 passes for 155 yards in his Patriots debut. He also ran for 75 yards and two touchdowns. If you were wondering whether he’d be up to the task both on the field and in the fashion department, you now have your answer.
Russell Westbrook is known for his fashion and terrible 3-point shooting. Both were on display Sunday night.
Westbrook had 10 points on 4-for-15 shooting in the Houston Rockets’ 117-109 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 2 of their Western Conference semifinals playoff series on Sunday night. He went 1-for-7 on threes and committed seven turnovers. He also was a -14 and had an all-around poor game for Houston.
As if his performance weren’t criminal enough, Westbrook was dressed in an orange jumpsuit after the game. He looked like a prisoner.
Westbrook knows a lot more about fashion than me and wears some crazy clothes, so we’ll have to take his word for it that that type of outfit is “in.” But dressing like a prisoner, while living in a bubble on the Disney World campus, and after such a poor game, probably isn’t the best idea.
The Rockets can’t have Westbrook falling for the Lakers’ bait by jacking up so many threes in the series. He’s 2-for-12 (16.7 percent) on threes this season after not taking more than four threes in a game since the season restarted in July.
Michael Lorenzen made his season debut on Saturday, and he did so in style.
Lorenzen entered the top of the seventh inning in Cincinnati to try and hold a 3-2 lead against the Detroit Tigers. He got a groundout and strikeout, but in between, he surrendered a 2-run home run to Miguel Cabrera.
Though Lorenzen took a blown save in the appearance, he was a big winner for his fashion.
Vans is a skateboarding shoe manufacturer and does not actually make cleats. Weaver believes there is a company that can add metal spikes to any shoe and that Lorenzen must have used that to get his custom cleats made.
The cleats didn’t bring Lorenzen good luck on the mound, but they gave him plenty of fashion points. Now he has to hope he just doesn’t get fined like this guy.
Houston Rockets guard Russell Westbrook sat out Saturday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans, with the team employing some load management for the front end of a back-to-back.
That meant Westbrook, ever the fashion icon, had to pick an outfit to wear on the sideline. He went with traditional dress on the top and shorts on the bottom — a choice that was roasted by the Rockets’ broadcast team.
Gardner Minshew was back at the Palouse on Saturday night to watch his Washington State Cougars take on the UCLA Bruins, and the Jaguars quarterback was fashionable as usual.
Minshew, who starred at quarterback for Washington State last year, was wearing his typical headband and aviator sunglasses. He had an old school Washington State shirt on, and the best part was he was rocking jorts:
Minshew has gone on to become the star of the moment in the NFL. An injury to Nick Foles opened up the Jacksonville Jaguars’ starting quarterback job to Minshew, who has taken advantage. He won his first career NFL game by beating the Titans on Thursday night.
With his popularity at a peak, there was a huge autograph line for Minshew prior to the game:
Minshew, a sixth-round pick, will get his first career start as the Jacksonville Jaguars visit the Houston Texans Sunday. A few Twitter accounts shared the old Minshew photo and said that’s how he looked getting off the plane in Houston.
Minshew didn’t quite show that swag traveling to his first start, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t feeling it.
Minshew was 22/25 for 275 yards, two touchdowns and an interception filling in for the injured Nick Foles in a Week 1 loss against Kansas City. He needs to play like the guy who was confident enough to dress that boldly.
Leave it to Beckham to make a statement in the NFL’s opening weekend. There aren’t many who would have the audacity to pull this off but this is Odell Beckham Jr. we’re talking about. What do you even do for an encore after this? Let’s hope no one tries to snatch it off like Aqib Talib did to Michael Crabtree’s gold chain.
Cam Newton is big on fashion and has a tendency to turn heads with his wardrobe selections on game day. The star quarterback did not disappoint before the Carolina Panthers kicked off their season on Sunday.
Newton showed up to Bank of America Stadium wearing an outfit that featured one of his signature hats, some Harry Potter-style glasses, a scarf, and some variation of a suit that had short sleeves and shorts. You have to see it to believe it:
If you remember, Tom Brady wore an eccentric hat to the New England Patriots’ preseason game against the Panthers last month, and people thought he might be trolling Newton. However, Brady later said he has even bigger fashion plans for the regular season. We doubt he can top Cam on Sunday.
