Are Those Pants Heated, Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

“Josh Brown angry. Josh Brown want hot pants.” -Josh Brown

Seattle Seahawks’ kicker Josh Brown will, in fact, be wearing heated pants when his team does battle with the #2 seed Green Bay Packers in the “Frozen Tundra” this Saturday evening. Brown has equipped a pair of warm ups with a battery-powered heater and added that, regardless of the temperature in Wisconsin, his thighs, hamstrings, and calves will be a toasty 75 degrees. Ok…tmi, Josh. T. M. I.

This is actually a pretty ingenious idea. In the past, kickers like Brown used to have to stay warm by stretching on the sidelines or practicing field goals until their number was called upon — oh the humanity. Now, with heated pants, Brown has removed any actual work he has to do to earn his paycheck in between the mere 77 plays that he had to take part in of the 1000s that the Seahawks executed this season.

Ahh, they just don’t make kickers like they used to:
