Brian Wilson is the Lady Gaga of Sports….and I’m not saying that in a good way. The weirdo closer for the San Fransisco Giants wore a skin tight tuxedo spandex suit to the ESPY’s last night…yeah weird.
I mean the beard is one thing, the whole “Fear The Beard” is another thing…I’m not sure how I feel about him anymore..I used to dig him, now, I’m not so sure. Part of me thinks that he is like Lady Gaga- meat dress and all, trying to get attention any way he can- partly because he’s not the lights out closer he was last year. I say this not because he’s 6-2 this year, which isn’t horrible, I say this because he’s gone from a 1.81 ERA last year (which is amazing, I think anyways) to a 3.14 which is .. ehhh. He’s allowed 39 hits in 43 innings, which is kind of not great…right?
I’m totally not saying he’s bad, I’m just saying that he’s not the incredible amazing Brian Wilson I saw last year. It sucks because I picked him up early in my fantasy draft this year. Anyways as I was saying, at first I thought his antics were all about “who he was“, a weirdo pretty much, but kind of a cool weirdo. Now, I’m kind of leaning towards the whole “needs attention, getting annoying” thing.
You’re not a professional wrestler, you’re not Dennis Rodman and you’re not Lady Gaga. Stop. And play baseball for crying out loud.
