For some people, wearing nothing but a "onesie" in the workplace would be utterly embarrassing. For New England Patriots running back Stevan Ridley, it's "team building."
As it turns out, Ridley owns quite the collection of onesies, or as he calls them, "Teletubby outfits." And so the second-year back out of LSU thought it would make for good fun if he and New England's five other running backs donned the outfits around the locker room.
"I had to get them into the running backs room and have them try ‘em out,” Ridley said. "It's just kind of a small joke, put some smiles on the faces in the locker room. It's a team thing."
And the running backs didn't just wear the onesies, they owned the onesies. Shane Vereen tweeted this photo of the guys in the outfits, and they look pretty good.
The next challenge is getting coach Bill Belichick out of his hoodie and into a onesie.
"I'm trying, man," Ridley said. "I'm gonna do my job and try, let's put it that way."
In all honesty, Ridley would probably have an easier time convincing Rob Gronkowski to swear off partying, but it never hurt to try.
