Tiffany and I -- and my new glasses, which are kind of weird, I'll admit -- discuss Sports Illustrated's "most overrated" list

    Those new glasses are dope!

    Good analysis, Clark Kent.

    Ms. Tan Tiffany and Professor Calcaterra,

    Thank you for your most recent installment of HBT Daily. Please let me know when you receive that call from Mr. Jeter as I am highly excited to hear about his thoughts on sucking so bad at baseball, yet making so much money doing it.

    Sincerely,
    Mr. Jason “El Bravo” Heyward

    Old school Ray Ban frames with the prescription lenses? That’s what it looks like to me. Nice.

      Not quite: Ronsir Revelations, which are slight modifications on the classic Ronsir Zyl:

        Nice. Get them in shades, too. So cool, you’ll skate to school.

      • Craig Calcaterra - Jun 1, 2011 at 2:11 PM

        I got the little clip ons that make these shades. They look better than the glasses themselves.

        Clip on make a fashion statement all their own, Craig!

    Nice Malcolm x glasses Craig. Where’s the bow tie?

  6. deathmonkey41 - Jun 1, 2011 at 2:09 PM

    I sense much Yankees hate in you, Craig. Hate is a path to the dark side.

    • Craig Calcaterra - Jun 1, 2011 at 2:12 PM

      Don’t underestimate the power of the dark side.

    First they brought on a new actress to play Mrs. Drummond on Diff’rent Strokes, then Felicity cut off her curly locks, and now you change your glasses. You jumped the shark, man.

    • deathmonkey41 - Jun 1, 2011 at 5:19 PM

      I would have to respectively disagree. While Pearly was quite annoying, Diff’rent Strokes jumped the shark when they brought in that ginger Sam. God, I hate Danny Cooksey.

    They new frames make you look like Malcolm X.

    • Jacob - Jun 1, 2011 at 2:14 PM

      I’m late on the joke and a typo to boot. This ain’t my morning.

    God, Craig is a total geek. The John Clayton of baseball.

    • Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Jun 1, 2011 at 2:41 PM

      I thought he was the Michael Clayton of baseball?

  10. Utley's Hair - Jun 1, 2011 at 2:35 PM

    Sorry, Craig, but I seem to remember my grandfather—in pictures, since he died 10 years before I was born—having a pair of those.

    • cur68 - Jun 1, 2011 at 2:41 PM

      Well your Grandpappy had good taste because I got both a pair of Ray Bans and a pair of Dolce & Gabbanas that look a lot like those specs of Craig’s. They are stone cold cool my friend. Stone. Cold.

      • Utley's Hair - Jun 1, 2011 at 2:50 PM

        Well, that taste was in the early to mid 60s.

      • yankeesfanlen - Jun 1, 2011 at 2:51 PM

        Things take awhile to get through customs, eh, cur.

      • cur68 - Jun 1, 2011 at 2:53 PM

        thhhhbbbtttt!

      • Utley's Hair - Jun 1, 2011 at 5:06 PM

        I knew I’d seen it somewhere else, also!!!!!

    Got it! Got it!. Tom Hanks stunt double in “Catch Me If You Can”

  12. Jonny 5 - Jun 1, 2011 at 3:22 PM

    I look cooler with glasses on myself. DAMN ME AND MY 25/20 VISION!!!!

  13. Old Gator - Jun 1, 2011 at 7:46 PM

    Me, I dig the Raymond Carver reference. The non-intellectual intellectual’s intellectual. As opposed to, say, Charles Bukowski, who is the intellectual’s non-intellectual.
