    I have a pink T-shirt I wear regularly. From "The Crabcake House" in Poquoson, Va.

    This is where I get hacked off at catalogs.

    I picked up an Orvis tee shirt for $15. The description said it was "salmon." When it arrived, my wife said it was a shade of pink.

    I ordered a Brooks Brothers oxford. The description said it was "raspberry." When it arrived, my wife said it was a shade of pink.

    Men's clothing companies should make it simple for us. Use whatever name you want for the color, but have a key somewhere in the catalog so we'll know salmon and raspberry are both shades of pink.

    (Yes, I wear both shirts. And I look damn good in both.)

    You didn't know raspberry was pink? How many raspberry things have you seen that weren't pink?

    Actual raspberries are red. Raspberry ice cream is pink, but the berry is red. Which I won't wear, either.

    But I'm saying. Any product described as "raspberry", not the actual fruit, is always a shade of pink. Normally almost a dark fuchsia.

    I think it's a plot by clothing designers to make us all look very gay.

    Exactly!!! I thought it was a faded red.

    Catalogues will never label pink men's shirts "pink" because they know no self-respecting man will order them.

    I'm one of the many who pop collars. I like the look. Of course, i've been doing it for six years now, so it's annoying that everyone else does. I also started wearing pink/baby blue/easter egg colors eight years ago, and now they're in style, which is also annoying.
    I'm not saying I'm a trend starter, but I try to do things people don't. It's fun to dress different. My thing now is white button down, polo shirt over it. It's different. It looks good. I like it.
    I will say this - there aren't many sports journalists who should be ripping on the way people dress. Sure, you can dress nice in a professional setting, but wearing stuff that's ten years old when you're hanging out with people looks ridiculous. We might be the worst dressed profession, so there's nothing worng with trying something different.
    Rant over.
