2009 Captain's Photo, Take One

Posted by Matt Terl on September 21, 2009 – 1:54 pm

Remember last year’s team captains photo? The one where Cornelius Griffin said his teammates told the six captains “You look gangster’? Well, today was scheduled to be the updated version, and — largely thanks to Jason Campbell‘s choice of ensembles — things did not go exactly as planned.

“You know, there’s nothing gangster about what Jason’s got on right now,” said Mike Sellers, a first-year captain. “Everybody wore their dark suits, but Jason wore a light gray suit, which don’t make no sense.”
The six captains had reminders put in their lockers to ensure that they brought suits, which are not part of the usual Monday attire. “The note said black or gray suits,” Rock Cartwright said, “and he wore the lightest gray suit he could find. He looked good, but he stuck out like a sore thumb. That’s Jason, though. I guess he’s the quarterback, he can do whatever he wants.”

Cornelius Griffin shrugged it off. “Honestly, the paper did say black or gray,” he said. “It didn’t say what shade of gray. I would’ve gone charcoal gray, but that’s gray.”

“Maybe you should stand in front of us, since you’re in the different colored suit,” Cartwright suggested.

For his part, Campbell was just resigned to the whole situation. “My foot hurts,” he said. “I already forgot my suit so I had to run back home and get it. I wish one of them would have worn a gray suit or something so we could’ve just gotten this done.”

Instead, the photo shoot was rescheduled for later in the week, at which time Campbell will presumably bring a darker gray suit. But the mention of Campbell’s hurt foot was enough to start Sellers down yet another track.

“He’s wearing slip-on Uggs,” Sellers pointed out, laughing.

“You know what’s different with Mike as a captain?” Campbell said to me, by way of responding to Sellers. “Our pictures gonna have to be wider so that we can fit his head into it.”

Griffin looked the quarterback up and down again, taking in the suit, the soft shoes, everything else. “He’s got the gray suit,” he said. “He has ankle issues, so he couldn’t get his foot in his shoes.” Griffin shook his head. “Really, he’s a hot mess.”
