Brian Scalabrine gets a tan

Anyone with a tan in Boston in February sticks out in the crowd. Of course, Brian Scalabrine at 6'9" with shocking red hair didn’t really need help sticking out in the crowd to begin with.

Boston cult figure (in the good way) Scalabrine bet the guys from The Toucher and Rich Show on 98.5 The Sports Hub (where he is a weekly guest) that if they could get him 250,000 write in votes for the All-Star team, he would get a spray tan. One of those little rules in life: Never bet wacky morning DJs unless you’re willing to pay up.

Scalabrine was, and on Wednesday morning the NBA player most likely to be confused with a snowman got a sprayed on tan. One that from the pictures looks a little orange -- to match his hair.
