Pants post

So as my city gets caught up in baseball postseason fever, I've only just noticed that most of the players are now wearing long pants. What gives? I feel like Tom Hanks in A League of Their Own - "There's no long pants in baseball!"

Seriously though, baseball is all about showing your socks. There's a reason there's no Boston Red Trousers or Chicago White Shirts. I'm ok with keeping the short pants and losing the stirrups - I wore those stirrups as a kid and they're not the most comfortable things. but it's a cardinal sin that so many players are now hiding their socks.

And deviating from pants a bit, I also must say that the Rockies' sleeveless jerseys with T-Shirts underneath look pretty ghetto. What's next, wifebeaters?

On to more pants. Yoga pants.

I recently purchased a few new pairs and wore one for the first time on Wednesday. Super comfy, great material, wonderful coral color. The problem? They show sweat worse than anything. I'm going to a new class in a heeated (not Bikram-hot) room, and by the end of class I looked like I pissed myself.

I thought baseball was all about showing the butts.

I'm watching the game right now and one of the Rockies' players has his pants so long they're almost covering his cleats. I don't like it. Looks sloppy.

Cat - again, I think those Arnie-army dreams are getting to you. ;) I think football is better for butts than baseball.

Chel - I saw that last night too. It looks horrible! Great game though.

STTD - Perhaps, "butt" most of the people that I know whom regularly attend games are females and that's all they talk about. Butts. Heh heh, yeah.

I gave up on baseball long ago, so I don't care what those overplayed jerks wear.

But...oooh, yoga pants! They are the greatest things ever created.

Cat - congrats, we gals are much more interesting to watch sports with.

Beckeye - I'm sure you feel the fatigue being in Yankeeland. It's a new thing for us, so I'm going with it.
