Fashion Tip: Don't Wear Patterns On Television; Someone Forgot to Tell the NFL Today Guys' Suits
There are a lot of rules when it comes to TV – and it’s only getting worse. With HD, you can’t mess up any makeup or even a hair or people will see it. People in the space will tell you the camera adds 10 pounds. OK, that makes sense, so I guess you would wear slimming colors. But, they also tell you not to wear patterns or buys micro-patterns on camera.
I watch a lot of news – they get it. Simple black, blue suits, solid white or blue shirts, simple tie. Well, who forgot to tell the football commentators? The last time I flipped on NFL Today, I caught epilepsy AND had a stroke. I flipped from the calm sounds of a golf tournament and the dull blue blazer of Jim Nantz over to the Steelers game last week – Shannon Sharpe and Deion Sanders were arguing about running options, and one of my eyes imploded and I threw up. I look forward to the NBA finals every year – while Charles Barkley was in a muted brown turtleneck and suggested that the more points you score the better your chances are to win the game – they cut away to college football commentator, Desmond Howard – I had vertigo and subsequently went blind.
It hasn't been all bad though -- I've found blind people have an easy go at life and are unnecessarily coddled.
