Zach Parise's Wild teammates humiliate him with this GQ picture

Hockey locker rooms are a fortress of ball-breaking, where half-naked and sweaty muscle men pit testosterone against wit.

So it should come as no surprise that Zach Parise's Wild teammates got a hold of this glam shot and used it to make a point. Parise returns tonight after missing 14 games, and nothing says welcome back like good ol' fashion humiliation.


The Wild's star player is also fresh off a calendar shoot for the team. Our Page 6 sources tells us, sadly, that he's fitted in traditional team garb.

"I'm not sure how often Zach will wear white trousers," says Aaron Sickman, the team's media coordinator. "But, hey, the sweater looks pretty sharp."

The photo was taken in October as part of Ralph Lauren's Team USA 2014 collection. The company is pushing the fact that it relied on 40 domestic craftsman and manufacturers this time around. During the 2012 Olympic games in London, the company came under fire for outfitting Team USA with clothing and gear made in China.

The top picture would have been better if he lost the pants and shirt.

Gotta agree with Onan. "Humiliate"? Really? Bullshit headline.

"Humiliate?" Hardly. It's called "good natured ribbing." Look into it sometime.

They are supposed to stand out, be distinctive. It wouldn't matter what they looked like some people would complain. I challenge them to do better. Mr. Lauren did designs that are patriotic and fun. Yeah maybe a little much for some. But you would all complain if they weren't "red white and blue" enough!' Give it a rest. Like I said if you can do better submit designs for the next Olympics and see how hard it is to "please everyone" just saying.

Not gay enough. They need more spandex and rainbow to make Mr Putin squirm.

The fact that these are made in the USA is embarrassing.

Pants and jacket do not go together but I like them as separates

As much as I love our Stars and Stripes, those sweaters are like an ugly Christmas sweater....

time to give that contract to anyone but Ralph Lauren. These aren't horrible, but heck, his uniforms look the same every Olympics.
