David Wright Ditches His Gigantic Helmet For The Double-Flaps
Posted by at 11:43 am ET 24 Comments

Good ol’ Davey Wright must got his feelings hurt by all those mean Mets fans who were saying bad things about his HUGE helmet the other night, so when he came to the plate in last night’s game, he wore a variation of the hideous Rawlings S100.

Behold… THE DOUBLE FLAP!

So it appears as if the Dark Helmet/Great Gazoo jokes have to be put on hold until he wises up and chooses to switch back. Until then, courtesy of intuitive commenter and spot-on Wheels impersonator D.Whitmore, we have his new doppelgänger.

    Now it is D.Whitmore’s obligation to /Wheeler this post.

    Ball is in your court D.

    It’s been a few years since I have been on theFightins.. I love Mega Man…. you have to tip your hat to David for jumping so quick back in the sattle after that incident.

    @James Fayleez: little league rocks

  • Watrick

    But, doesn’t No Questions Asked wear the same kind of helmet? And isn’t it because he’s too lazy to try and remember which way he’s going to bat?

  • http://www.thefightins.com meech.one

    Yeah, but Shane Victorino is cool and likes women.

  • Cola Classic

    not to mention he does keg stands in the outfield….

    is victorino the chuck norris of baseball? hmm…

    Too late to change back. The old helmet is being used as a kiddie pool.

    Off topic but did anybody see Wheels latest tweet? Is this dude the silliest mofo or what?

    THE_REAL_WHEELS: Someone needs to wake up the Phillies bats. Like that voodoo guy in Major League! Two and a Half Men is funny too.

    Anyone catch Bortone’s column on Bugs and Cranks that extols the virtues (in other words, makes fun of) David Wright’s new helmet? So a Mets fan can make fun of it, but we can’t?

    I’ll never understand this messed up, crazy world.

  • J-D

    what a twat waffle

  • Muscles

    “but but but but but but but how can you guys make fun of someone for trying to protect themselves. everyone will be wearing these things soon.

    this is comming from the same city that threw battery acid at jesus christ.

    Its obviously just some inferiority complex, NY is awesome and no one can make fun of anything about it unless they are jealous.”

    Suck my ass mets fans. No one likes you or your shitty city!

  • Sarge

    Folks, take it from a man who knows a thing or two about HATS. You gotta do IT with style, and THAT HELMET ain’t a HAT.

    Where are the Mets fans from yesterday whose comeback to the Wright helmet fiasco was, “At least he doesn’t wear the double flap like Shane Victorino”.

  • http://twitter.com/JayDashDog Jdashdog

    He should get a clear eye shield to make his bukkake mask complete

  • http://www.cranekickchronicles.com Crane Kick

    Judging by his expression, that helmet is made out of shit.

  • D. Whitmore

    “Oh brother! those Virginia boys sure are a bunch of goofballs. I know that he had to wear those funky double flaps when he played on that silly AAU team with Zimmerman, Upton, and the powerful Mark Reynolds but oh man, why would he wear it now? I bet he sure is gonna get a few phone calls from those fellas! Just imagine Luzinski trying to wear that helmet!! It almost looks kinda like a fighter pilot helmet too. Have you guys seen that Top Gun movie? What an actor that Tom Cruise is!”

    How can anyone hate Chris Wheeler?

    They were busting on Wright and his dorky hat on ESPN last night. It wasn’t as funny as meech but still amusing.
