OK, so he's actually dressed like Bob Huggins, right out of the Charlie Sheen catalogue. But those -- count 'em -- two shiners beneath Huggins's right and left eyes, and the big welt on his top right, make him look less like a basketball coach than a man who had the misfortune of facing Manny Pacquiao with money on the line.
The explanation for the bruises? Here's AP photographer Bob Gay's caption:
West Virginia University athletic director Ed Pastilong, left, and WVU basketball coach Bob Huggins are shown Sunday, June 7, 2009, at a fantasy camp basketball banquet in Morgantown, W.Va. Huggins kept his sense of humor as he sported two black eyes and a welt. He says he stepped into the edge of his bathroom door late one night. Pastilong's right hand was in a cast from recent surgery.
Oh! A bathroom door! Late at night! Why didn't I think of that? Because typically when one's eyes are black and blue, it's because he or she slammed his or her entire face into a bathroom door at such an angle so as to bruise only their eyes, but not their nose or forehead or cheeks. Duh! That makes perfect sense.
