Celebrity athletes: They're just like us

A couple times I've pointed out how celebrities are just like us. Turns out, athlete celebrities are just like us, too.

They go to psychics. Red Sox centerfielder and delicious breakfast treat Coco Crisp told a Sox clubhouse reporter the other day that he was dressed head-to-toe in green because "My psychic told me that if I wore green, it would be good luck." I wonder if his psychic was dumb enough to draft him in fantasy baseball this year, as I was.

They struggle to get time off work. Man-about-town Tom Brady ("A good looking guy with a few nice suits") would like to get some time off when his super pregnant ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan gives birth, which judging by the picture at right is going to be any second now. But not so fast. Brady's shift supervisor, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, has yet to approve his time-off request form. "We’ll see when it happens. Like I said, it’s up to Bill," Brady said recently.

They wear the same clothes each day. And speaking of Coach Belichick, it looks like that hoodie is getting plenty of reps with the first team offense at Patriots training camp.

More stylephile in the future. They have a remarkably talented team of writers. Also, Belichick looks like he's taking a walk of shame wearing the football captain's favorite jersey in that photo.
