For the Win[F]ormer Giants coach Jim Fassel has a problem with Newton’€™s pregame attire, specifically the gold cleats he donned during warm ups. Here’€™s what Fassel had to say on a Mile High Sports radio show:

“All of the numbers pointed to Carolina. And when I saw Cam Newton walk out in gold shoes, MVP, I switched my mind right then. I said that’€™s not what a starting quarterback, MVP, leading his team — and I had a lot of respect for him during the season — that’€™s not what happens. You don’€™t do that. And I said this guy’€™s already become soft and that’€™s what he was.”

Sure, everyone who’s heard Jim Fassel’s Gold Shoes Theory is dismissing it as the ranting of a 66-year old, out of touch, old school ball coach who should be angrily sending back his early bird special at the Golden Corral. And you can argue time and the game have passed him by in the 12 years since he lead the Giants to an average of 8.5 wins per season. But what you can’t argue is that he turned out to be right.

The minute Cam Newton walked out in those gold shoes, we all should have known what was coming. How can you expect a leader to will the men under his command to victory when he’s spending more time on his shoes than a “Sex and the City” girl? How do you expect a quarterback to go through his read progessions when he’s thinking about how his fashion-forward footwear shows up on TV? And how can you ask a guy to dive on a loose football when doing so could scuff a to-die-for pair of stylish cleats he spent weeks picking out? Obviously Newton had already become soft, and Jim Fassel was the only one to recognize it.

And this proves one other thing. From now on, we should look really at another man’s shoes.

I admit that I’m a two-planker and not a boarder, but I am stoked to get to Fenway this week because I would be totes shredding the gnar on this. Seriously, I would so steeze on that corked nine it would be sick nasty. Just rocking down the badass cornice halfway down would be hella crispy, bro. Plus, I … OK. I have to stop now.

All seriousness aside, this is genuinely awesome. I’ll be working so I won’t be able to get to Fenway for this, but they’re expecting 20,000 to show up. And it’s so unique and spectacular it begs a question I ask every time Fenway hosts a concert, a hockey game, a football game or a 150-foot ski slope. Why did we like the Yawkeys so much, anyway? In a million years those miserable, carpetbagging, racist old coots would never have allowed something this cool.

Anyway, have a blast everyone who gets to do this. Don’t do a max air plummet and eat snow, ya muppets. (Sorry.)
