The Matt Hasselbeck era will begin for the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
We’re not sure if that’s necessarily a good thing, but oh well.
Sunday also marks the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and the NFL is pulling out all the patriotic stops. So is Hasselbeck.
Or at least, so are Hasselbeck’s feet.
The quarterback got a pair of the most patriotic football cleats we’ve ever seen from Reebok. They scream at the top of their lungs, “I’m a goddam American and I will be goddamed if my feet don’t tell everyone I ooze patriotism!”
Unfortunately, they’re also the ugliest damn shoes we’ve ever seen.
They’re the kind of shoes Billy Mitchell would wear if he played football instead of Donkey Kong. And that’s not a good thing.
If Hasselbeck could grow hair on his head, we would have suggested he grow a mullet like Mitchell’s to go with his new footwear.
