Tarps off for this weeks edition of Trading Card Tuesday.....ladies...meet Steve Smith......all 6'3" and 215 pounds of him. His shirt decided to call in sick today for the beach volleyball game at the Upper Deck photo shoot. It's okay though, he has some paid time off accrued. The jean shorts (Jorts) hitting right above the knee with the black belt just adds to the sty. This card dates the typical fitness watches.....this is most likely a digital Timex (Iron Man edition) wrist watch. (Per our sources)
At 6'3" paired with those long breadsticks someone on the other side of the net is getting spiked on.....that's for damn sure. This photo was clearly taken during the off-season, cause that tan is impossible living thru a Chicago winter.....only explanation for an in-season shoot is a nice 10 day roadie thru the Sun Belt to play the southern teams, however we're leaning towards a summer shoot. (Steve, most likely headed down to North Avenue Beach to dominate some locals after the shoot was done).
Lets take a moment to remember Smitty's 304 PIM's in the 91-92 campaign in the Windy City.....Okay, on with your Tuesday.
