Again, for some reason that is probably no more exciting than coincidence, here is a cartoon about fighting.
But it’s not really about fighting. I got this idea from watching a basketball game on TV. As baggy pants became a fashion trend among ghetto thugs and then suburban mall rats, the NBA went to increasingly bigger shorts, and other levels of basketball followed. The small shorts of the 70s look ridiculous to us now, but they were that size because they didn’t restrict the player’s movement. I doubt the same can be said for the shorts of today, it looks like guys playing basketball in dresses. Once they start sweating, they’re playing in wet dresses. Charming.
I would think that if one player suddenly decided to wear a uniform that fit, he’d be able to outmaneuver the other guys in their 1920s ladies swimsuits, win games, and the trend would reverse. If it were all about function, as most sports clothing is, their uniforms would resemble that of a cyclist. But would the egos of the NBA be caught dead in bike shorts? I wonder.
So here is a cartoon featuring boxers with huge, over-sized equipment and shorts, and don’t they look cool? Can’t wait to see them wield those gloves.
