Initially, I kind of got a kick out of him. Â But he wears on me now. Â I feel like he’s trying much too hard to be funny or edgy or quirky or all three.
Wilson is driving what appears to be a fully equipped police cruiser, complete with a loudspeaker. He literally announces his arrival when he pulls into the Scottsdale Stadium parking lot, getting on the horn to blare, â€œIâ€™m heeeereâ€ to the group of autograph seekers lining the rail.
I read this today and my first thought was that he went from being amusing to being boorish. Â We get it, Brian. Â You’re wacky. Â You go on national late night talk shows and bring a teammate dressed in bondage gear. Â You wear a mohawk and have tattoos and a beard.
I don’t get it. Â I mean, I don’t dislike the guy. Â He’s a good pitcher and I was happy for him and his team to win the World Series. Â He reminds me of someone I know who is constantly telling people he’s a renegade, a rebel, a non-conformist. Â It’s difficult not to roll my eyes. Â The in your face stuff just grows old with me.
Maybe I’m just having a bad day.
