PHOENIX - Diamondbacks legend, Luis Gonzalez, was caught sporting around a fashion faux paus at the D-backs Fan Fest Saturday.
He was wearing the dreaded fanny pack.
Yes, a fanny pack. The small bag that was originally worn above the buttocks, hence the name "fanny" pack.
Admit it, you use to wear one too. The question is, do you still wear one today? Probably not, unless you're going for the tourist look. You know, the Hawaiian shirt, the visor, the camera over the shoulder...and the fanny pack.
ABC15 Sports Director Craig Fouhy wasn't going to let this one slide. He walked right up to Gonzo and stated, "It was popular in the 80's."
"What are you talking about?" Gonzalez asked. "This is a cool fanny pack."
"But there's no such thing as a cool fanny pack."
"It's a cool fanny pack," the two said as they bickered back and forth like an old married couple. That is, until Fouhy dropped the phrase, "I'm a little concerned about your man-card right now."
"My man-card has my money in it!" Gonzalez said laughing.
Turns out, Gonzalez ran in Saturday's D-backs Race Against Cancer and needed a place to store his belongings.
