When Athlete Wives Go Dangerously Wrong

Illustration for article titled When Athlete Wives Go Dangerously Wrong

You know, life as the child of a professional athlete is hard enough. And now look what some baseball wives are doing.


Via The Lefty, we guiltily introduce you to The Athlete's Child, a clothing Web site for "children who love the spotlight!" (until, in response to being exploited as children, they pierce their eyebrow and dress like Vito Jr. by the time they're 15.) Founded by the wives of Jason Varitek, Doug Mirabelli, Joe Borowski (seen here with his family after tracking down and blasting apart a mastadon) and Ron Mahay, it's a response to "a long time trying to outfit their kids to attend baseball games."

It gets better: "Children of athletes endure the public eye and are always looking for the newest ways to show support to their parents as well as look adorable. The new venture offers the support as well as the style."


God. These poor kids. The good news is that they don't have to deal with their fathers six months out of the year. The bad news is that they're stuck with these moms.

If you want to keep your soul, we recommend skipping the gallery.
