One Vote Against High Socks

New, comments

In my last post I wondered if high socks were cool. Ultimately, even after acknowledging my strong bias against them, I begrudgingly accepted that all NBA players are cooler than me and by extension then high socks are cool. I even went as far to say,

"Now I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Posey is cooler than me. Everyone in the NBA is, Brian Scalabrine included. Well everyone but Damon Jones. He tries way too hard."

The plot thickens. Regardless of what I said about Sclabrine, that has to hurt the high socks movement. I don't care that he went to USC and probably did pretty well there. And I'm not talking about academics or basketball. I think this calls for an exhaustive study of which players wear high socks and by default who does not. For the time being I will lay low. However, you can expect sporadic updates during the regular season. That's it for now.
