When Lane Kiffin Dons a Sombrero, the Blogosphere Takes Notice
The internet and blog sites are amazing, but there is a catch-22. In an effort to constantly fill the 24/7/365 news cycle and ‘feed the beast,’ many bloggers/sites (myself included) stretch for content.
For instance, take USC’s arrival at the El Paso International Airport earlier today. Lane Kiffin and the Trojans were greeted with traditional El Paso/Sun Bowl hospitality that includes tons of people, folklorico dancers, and mariachis. The official USC athletics Twitter page tweeted out a picture of Kiffin rocking a sombrero. Within minutes, the photo had gone viral.
There are many more, but you get the idea.
I’ll admit, it is amusing and out of the ordinary to see a football coach in a comically oversized hat made popular by bandits and cowboys over a century ago. However, is there really so little going on today that it was worth blogging about? I’ll give myself a pass since it is technically a ‘local story.’
Without further adieu, here is Lane Kiffin rocking a sombrero like one of the ‘Three Amigos.’
