Who Wore It Better: Pittsburgh Steelers Brown Or Craig Sager?

Pittsburgh Steelers Antonio Brown was featured on NFL Network’s Top 100 on Wednesday evening. Brown came in at #23, his first time on the list and he cracks the Top 25 (funny how Mike Wallace probably won’t make the cut this year….). The network had Brown on the program after the 30 second ‘roided highlight reel. Brown was rather humble (no surprise there) with being put in that spot, and mainly thanked all his teammates for their support and efforts throughout the season. He wouldn’t even take the bait from the NFL Network’s pundits when they asked him who the #2 receiver in the league is – with Calvin Johnson being #1, of course.
It was nice to see Brown get that kind of recognition, even though it is coming from the overhyped NFL Network and its bajillion Top _____ Lists. But for me, the news isn’t about Brown being named #23 out of 100 players in the league. Oh no. It’s the suit. Woah mylanta. Those are some threads. Brown looked good, but I couldn’t help think of sports broadcaster Craig Sager and his often ‘interesting choice’ of garments. Sager is legendary for his ‘loud’ suits as much as he is legendary within the sports broadcasting field. I went looking on the internets for a Sager suit that might come close to Brown’s daper of a suit coat. So I ask you Steeler Nation: Who wore it better? Antonio Brown? Or Craig Sager?
It’s almost too close to call. Sager sports a matching tie, which are big points right there. But, Brown’s subtle peach colored vest ties everything in nicely.
So who’s your winner?
We’re just having a bit of fun over here. I want to make note that Craig Sager is on my mind frequently. He has the utmost respect and is a great guy. Sager has been battling an form of leukemia and will undergo a bone marrow transplant with his son, Craig Jr., being the donor. We wish Sager the best of luck during his transplant surgery, and the speediest of recoveries, so that eyes across America can be mesmerized by those loud suits for years to come.
