Let's not mince words here: The "ugly sweater" craze is played out, little more than a whimsical attempt to tack a shred of personality to the boring human who wears one.
The whole thing has gone from kitschy trend to tired cliché – you can even buy ugly sweater starter kits at Target – and now, North America's so-called "Big Four" pro leagues have gotten in on the action (oh, and Major League Soccer, too). Recently, the New York Times wrote about the proliferation of ugly NBA sweaters, which gave me an idea: Rather than complain about the seasonal uniform of the uninformed, why not embrace the idea?
What I'm proposing is a line of NBA "Ugly Incident" Sweaters, a collection of itchy polyester blends meant to commemorate the wildest and weirdest moments in league history. Here are my designs for the first run.
