From the desk of StevieY19:
So apparently the Spanish national basketball team got together for a little photo-op before departing to Beijing and decided to go all racist on the camera. You can just hear the photographer: “Okay, a little to the right Sergio, good. Now, everyone make your slant eyes. Hilarious!” The players, pictured below, seem to agree that the photo is comedy at its highest level.
This got me thinking of other team photos taken before a team departs for a road game:
-Before a preseason game at Ford Field against the Detroit Lions, the Giants posed for a quick picture donning bulletproof vests…and helmets, just to be safe.
-The Florida Marlins were prepping for a roadie to play the Washington Nationals, but paused for a photograph with the starters holding handguns. Dan Uggla bobbled and dropped his and accidentally shot Mike Jacobs in the leg.
-The Nationals, oddly enough, thought they were supposed to play in Florida, and posed for a shot with Depends and large sunglasses.
-Not to be outdone, the Oakland A’s recently printed up ESPN press passes for their trip to Fenway and got in a picture holding their credentials.
-And finally, before their trip to play the Dallas Cowboys, the Redskins each married 25 women, had children and posed for a huge group polygamist compound picture. Tight end Chris Cooley married 35 women, because he is awesome.
