I remember seeing Jesse Carleson on TV a couple years ago carrying a hello kitty backpack. It was confused....

jose had to use the Dora The Explorer backpack when he was a rookie

making guys wear childish clothing and accessories is kind of played out, they need to start thinking of new initiations

I wonder if they were those uggs things. They are so trendy. And yet they are so hot. And I bet they're comfy as hell too. I'd be a little jealous if that was the case.

Really though - this thing with chicks in boots is fantastic.

It may interest you to know that they now have man-uggs, LX.

I saw a few people wearing them last winter. Most of the culprits also had skinny jeans and Spanish/Euro mullets. I guess it takes a certain look to pull them off.

You should get a pair.

My initiation for University Volleyball was nice. All the usual stuff, stupid clothing, shaved nuts, had to run through a neighbourhood naked and go into a bar, drank a lot, and in the afternnoon, had to jump into Lake Gibson and swim from one point to another. Being a local, I knew this was ridiculous as the current is deadly there, I was last out of the car to the lake. When I got there, a guy had already decided to be a hero and go..... he got sucked into the undertow. Funny how you react, all the other rooks were standing on the shore freaking out, when I finally got to whewre they were I ran right past them, and did the stride jump into the lake (learned that in grade 13 physed safety training ) Anyhow, I got out there and stayed just out of the current and got the guy into safer water. Helped out a bit and we got to shore. He lived. Nobody said a word about it after because had we been caught, we would have lost our team under CIAU Hazing rules.

Great day.

ya, funny thing, half way into the semester, there's this girl that was dating this guy that lived witht he women from the Basketball team me and my buddy Mike hung out with, she sat and told me about how her boyfriend saved Mark from drowning at the Rookie initiation. I was like, "really, did he???"

She proceeded to tell me she would know better than me.... she dated the dude that saved him and all. It was pretty brutal, she said it in front of a bunch of people and tried to make me look bad.... except, they all looked at her like she was insane and reminded her that if it was me that was in the fucking lake, I might have had a better view of the event than she did.

Priceless

I'm straight hating on those boots because they look stupid, cheap and should be sent back to the moon where they belong '_'

Man Uggs, huh? Hmmmm... might have to look into those. I know a lot of girls who say it's the most comfortable boots ever.

just remember you have to rock the skinny jeans too. I'd also recommend a juicy couture t-shirt.

Make it work!

Can't sport the skinny jeans cause the knots don't fit. I'd do Uggs and baggy jeans.

Uggs are for girls. Period.

You may as well put a bow in your hair.

There's a guy section on the Uggs website - I'm sure they will be all the rage this Christmas.

Man-uggs. Damn. I will get myself too turned on by myself. But I might try it anyway - and I could even rock the bow in the hair - if I had enough.
