Ken Rosenthal Will Wear A Bow Tie All Year

We generally appreciate Rosenthal, even if he does on occasion throw some shit at the wall. We're therefore delighted to see he'll be making the bow tie a permanent addition to the wardrobe, at least for this season. And it's for a good cause.

Via Hardball Talk, Rosenthal will be wearing a different one each week on air to represent different causes, including Livestrong and the Ronald McDonald House. He'll also have the chance to say a few things about each charity.

(Interestingly, the whole bow-ties-for-charity thing is an initiative of the Bengals' Dhani Jones.)

Raising awareness and seeing Ken Rosenthal in a bow tie? Everybody wins, except perhaps Rosenthal, who says he initially hated the idea of wearing them, first forced upon him by his FOX bosses at the World Series.

[T]he first time Joe Buck asked me on air about the bow tie, I said, "My wife and two daughters are playing the entire Series under protest."

Truth be told, I was, too.

But we have to agree with Hardball Talk, who says Rosenthal "totally fits the mold of a bow tie wearer." It just works, Ken doll.
