vincent spadea: at least he's self-aware

Bedazzled trucker hats, basketball shorts — these are things you don’t normally seen worn during a tennis match (on the court, at least), but are staples of Vince Spadea‘s wardrobe.

Although I’m not sure if he’s trying to look crazy or doesn’t care enough to bother — the same question that goes through my mind every time I see Bud Collins — I have to say that I like approve of the logo on his caps.

It’s a drawing of him wearing a trucker hat. How very meta.

Edit: Here’s a Spadea link from JNP to www.vincespadea.com (“recognized by the ATP as the Official Vince Spadea Website”). He’s selling socks and sweatbands with that same trucker logo, along with a shirt that says “SPADEA: Ain’t Afraid Of Ya”.

Jesus. Someone help him with a redesign, please? I’m sure he had a wonderful time making this website on AngelFire in 1997, but it really needs to go.
