15 Athletes You Would Hate To Go Black Friday Shopping With
15 Athletes You Couldn't Stand To Black Friday Shop With
Unfortunately, Black Friday has become its own holiday in the United States. It used to just be that everyone went shopping the day after Thanksgiving, but now that advertisers have gotten a hold of the term 'Black Friday', it's taken on a life of its own.
The really terrible thing is that Black Friday overshadows Thanksgiving in a lot of ways now. Thanksgiving epitomizes what a holiday should truly be about. It's a day that's just about eating good food, hanging out with friends and family and being grateful for all that we have in life. There's no gift exchange or pressure involved, it's just about kicking back and enjoying the simple things.
With Black Friday directly behind Thanksgiving, it takes away from a day that used to be completely different from Christmas. It seems like the majority of businesses now jump the gun and start up with Christmas ads and specials several weeks before Thanksgiving even gets here. Why? Because there's very little money to be made off of Thanksgiving. Christmas sales are where it's at.
So as it pertains to the world of sports, we thought it would be fun to take a look at some athletes that you wouldn't be caught dead shopping with on the busiest day of the year. Sure, some of these athletes are filthy rich and they could buy you anything you wanted. But you know that you'd get drug along to stores you don't want to go to and some of them would just be too much to handle.
Here are 15 athletes you couldn't stand to go Black Friday shopping with:
The Rockets' center would be terrible to go Black Friday shopping with, because wouldn't be able to decide what store to go to.
Richard Sherman would talk smack to everyone in line at the mall and eventually you'd end up in a Black Friday fight.
Braun would lie about what stores you're going to.
Are you going to tell that face no?
You can't take Sanchez anywhere looking like that.
Vince Young seems like a nice guy, but let's be honest, he couldn't afford to buy anything these days.
Who would ever want to spend a day with this jackwagon?
What are you going to talk about while waiting in line with Suh? His history of illegal hits?
Shopping with a pouty 17-year old girl? No thank you.
Philip Rivers would yell at you the entire shopping trip.
Spending Black Friday with Joba Chamberlain would likely result in you smelling chew spit and farts all day.
The odds of Pacman getting into it with a mall security guard are pretty good.
You would hate to be on the other end of a KG-store manager argument over a sale price.
Bro Harper would make you spend the whole day at Abercrombie and Fitch.
Black Friday shopping at The Wal-Mart with Tonya Harding = the worst.
