A radio host made a fashion faux pas in the sports world when she wore a rival team’s baseball hat to a news conference. In addition to being publicly shunned by the coach, the woman later tweeted she was fired for sporting her college cap.
A reporter wearing a baseball cap to a sports news conference doesn’t seem like it would be violating a dress code policy. Unfortunately, a radio host at KAKS, an Arkansas radio station, made the mistake of wearing a Florida Gators cap to the Arkansas Razorbacks conference.
The Razorbacks coach took notice of the rival team’s insignia and told the radio host, “and that will be the last question I answer with that hat on.”
According to the radio host, her fashion faux pas was simply a mistake. She “grabbed the hat without thinking because it was raining outside.”
That mistake got her fired, according to her twitter page. The radio host made the public announcement via the social media site, “Was hoping to publicly apologize to coach Petrino and UA fans on the show today … but I won’t get that chance. I’ve been fired.”
Perhaps this is something to keep in mind before donning your favorite team’s colors or logo for College Colors Day on September 3rd!
