SF Giants Closer Unleashes Beard for SportsCenter

Happy opening day, AgencySpy readers! It’s time for America’s pastime once again, and wouldn’t it be great to start Major League Baseball’s 2011 season with a Yankees loss? And, remember when I told you about the Milwaukee Brewers being this year’s Cinderella story? Well guess what! They’re already up three on the Cincinnati Reds at the top of the 3rd! Boys of summer, we missed you.

Due to Major League Baseball fearing the Internet like the plague, we can’t show you any official spots from the league that were created by Hill Holliday (you can view them here instead). Unlike the NBA and NFL, they don’t allow their videos to be embedded. Seriously, what gives, ladies?

Instead, we’ll celebrate the beginning of a new season with SportsCenter’s latest spot from the those rascals at W+K NY. That dude with the crazy beard is the man who closed the 2010 World Series and won San Francisco its first championship, Brian Wilson. Believe it or not, Wilson’s beard might be his least crazy attribute. A self-proclaimed certified ninja (a dream told him), Wilson’s a shoe-coloring mohawk-wearing BDSM-supporting breath of fresh air for a sport that needs more big personalities. Happy opening day, and may the Yankees go winless.
