James Harden does not believe in dressing up to throw out ceremonial first pitches. Check out his ensemble when he tossed out the first pitch before Sunday’s Astros-Tigers game. Raggedy-ass cut-off jorts, white t-shirt, high socks.
What does this look say to me? It says, “I am trying to create the impression that I am not concerned about fashion. I want people to think that I live in a studio apartment with no furniture except a mattress and a single folding chair. It’s possible that I do not even have a toilet.”
Okay, we get it James Harden, YOU ARE A SIMPLE MAN WHO DOES NOT WORRY MUCH ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL APPEARANCE. Or playing defense.
Cut-off jorts though. That’s just so aggressively ragged. If they had been regular jorts, without the tatters and threads, I could have handled it. I could have rolled with it. But cut-offs?
I don’t know if I can abide cut-offs. They make me suspicious. I have to question the intentions of a man who rolls himself out into a public setting wearing clothing that he seems to have personally altered using dull scissors, possibly while stoned.
I have to wonder about that dude, just a little.
