Ex LSU pitcher Brian Wilson showed up at the ESPYs the other night in a skin-tight Spandex tuxedo with an orange bow tie. The Giants' relief pitcher also sports the world's most fake-looking real beard a la Charlie Sheen. I feel for Brian Wilson The Original, the Beach Boys founder and creative force...
