39. MVP

Era: Current

Another true story. During my stint with the "E," a brash young "baller" arrived on the scene named Montel Vontavious Porter aka MVP. He was basically Terrell Owens in and out of the ring. An entitled, prima donna, superstar athlete with the 7-figure contract to match. In a creative meeting before his debut, the question was posed to the creative team on what he should wear. My answer? As a lifelong Eagles fan I said, "His gear should look like the Under Armour onesies that Owens wears in practice." Well, the end result was close (a flashy, red and gold, long-sleeved, zip-up singlet) but unfortunately, fans thought he looked more like a Power Ranger. Sorry MVP! -AG
