Sartorial Splendor in Fort Myers

Craig Sager, “America’s Sideline Reporter”, has developed a well-earned reputation as the loudest, tackiest dresser in all of televised sports journalism:

Sager made many professional pit stops along the way to suit jacket-based national recognition, one of which was Fort Myers, FL (in the 70s, he was a sportscaster for a station with the excellent call letters of WINK).

The esteemed reporter’s Fort Myers connection was all the motivation the hometown Miracle needed to stage a promotion in his honor, as Tuesday was “Dress Like Craig Sager Night” at Hammond Stadium.

The winner of the evening’s “Best Dressed” contest was this individual:

Here he is atop the dugout, along with a fellow loud dresser and, of course, an ape:

Meanwhile, I haven’t seen a pink mic this big since Mr. Golic participated in a breast cancer awareness promotion:

Before closing out this post I must draw your attention to a just-announced promotion happening in Omaha, one that has resulted in the most amusing headline of “Korn, Dogs on Tap Monday at Rosenblatt.” Here’s the scoop:

The rock group Korn will be playing a sold-out concert at Sokol
Auditorium on the night of Monday, May 24th. Before the show, the
group’s lead singer, Jonathan Davis, will throw out a ceremonial first
pitch prior to the Omaha Royals 6:35 p.m. game vs. the Colorado Springs
Sky Sox at Rosenblatt Stadium….Monday night’s game is also $1 hot dog night

Brilliant…Just brilliant.
