Manny first to combine looks of Battlefield Earth and Jimmy Hart


Manny Ramirez debuted his latest bizarre fashion statement yesterday, channeling both longtime idol and Hall of Fame WWF manager Jimmy Hart, and various characters from box office thriller Battlefield Earth

With fashion week just days away in Manhattan, high profile fashionistas from Paris and Milan were understandably reeling to re-adjust their lines at the last minute after seeing the lazy slugger arrogantly perched on the dugout at Yankee Stadium like a beaten, unenthused sloth.

"You know how I say ‘make it work?’" said Tim Gunn of Bravo’s Project Runway.  "Well with Manny, I don’t need to say that, he just makes it work.  He’s remarkably fabulous.  And those glasses, to die for."

Gunn and the rest of the fashionistas must’ve been so blinded by Manny’s awe-inspiring head to notice him wearing his classic clown-like pants, which more times than not look like he’s got a giant dump stewing in them.

Sources could not immediately confirm if Bravo had indeed given Manny a lucrative development deal for his own show.

    This guy is a load. I was at the game when he got hurt, you could have the same injury bending over for a quarter, and we call him an athlete.

    Love it, he’s such an enormous train wreck.

    I am a yankee fan too, and I wouldn’t mind having him in the line-up… He is built to play in NY

    What, anti-sox statements will not be tolerated for fear of the pink-capped “ladies”

    Any player dressing up like Jimmy Hart gets a high-five from me…

    Yeah, all those manly Yankee athletes come down with hamstring injuries. Back spasms are so 1990s.

    Actually, I think it’s more like Randy Savage.

    Probably somewhere in between, the Macho Man’s glasses are big anough to cover Peyton Manning’s forehead, twice.

    Why all the fuss about how Manny looks? I wonder if the Sox plan to keep Eric Gagne around long enough to find a uniform that fits him…not that they should or could.
    Which brings up another matter….the Sox seem to acquire or keep around fat pitchers who are out of shape and get hurt…David Wells, Curt Schilling, Brendan Donnelly, now Gagne..probably some I’ve forgotten. It’s pretty hard to make these guys look good in Speedos.
