Until Deion Sanders put a do-rag on his new Hall of Fame bust, the bronze sculpture didn't look like any version of Prime Time we had ever seen.
All the bandana managed to accomplish was to distract from the fact that the bust looked nothing like him. With the do-rag it looked more like Deion, sure, but put a stovepipe hat on anyone and they'll look like Abraham Lincoln. Deion's bust looks as little like Deion as Italy Jwoww looked like Seaside Heights Jwoww.
It's all wrong. The smile, the eyes, the hair; if you backed away, squinted your eyes and concentrated really hard on the bust high-stepping into the end zone then maybe -- maybe -- you could see some Deion in it. Here's who we saw instead:
1. Troy Aikman
2. A thinner Vince Lombardi (courtesy Doug Farrar)
3. Ryan Phillippe from "Cruel Intentions"
4. The hair of treasury secretary Tim Geithner
5. The neck of Merton Hanks
The busts of the other inducted players were excellent likenesses, the three inductees in the first picture, in particular (Marshall Faulk, Chris Hanburger and Richard Dent):
On another note, only Deion can make the tulip yellow Hall of Fame blazer look good.
