UNLIKELY INSPIRATION

A few months ago, I was watching an NBA game with the boys.
Okay, let's get real, I was most likely reading Southern Living while they were watching the game.

While my boys were discussing the team fouls and rebounds, 
I couldn't help but focus on the sports announcer's outfit.
I did a double take and then asked to my husband to pause the TV so I could snap a picture. 
Now I'm no sports fanatic, but I do have two boys who are obsessed 
with basketball, baseball and football.  
So I see my fair share of sporting events on TV. 
However, it seems as though I have been living under a rock.   
Apparently the sports announcer, Craig Sager, is quite famous for his outlandish outfits.

I was intrigued. 
I did a little digging and came up with a few more Craig Sager ensembles. 
Since fashion isn't necessarily my thing, my thoughts immediately turned to interior design.

I used a few of my favorite Craig Sager outfits as inspiration 
for a little fabric/wallcovering pattern mixing.

Humor me, if you will........
(Oh, and if you love any of the fabrics/wallcoverings, I have included links to the sources below).

While searching for my favorite Craig Sager suits, 
I discovered he is currently battling acute myeloid leukemia.  
My prayers go out to him and his family. 
I sure hope his is back in action and sporting some fabulous fashion very soon.
