Ryan Howard might not be the perfect baseball player but he sure seems like a pretty cool dude. This picture was posted on DJ Premier’s instragram page and includes a very important detail: Ryan Howard had DJ Premier as the DJ at his wedding. Which, I think we can all agree, is the kind of thing we would all do provided a $125 million guaranteed contract.
Secondary to posing with hip hop royalty, Ryan Howard also appears to have a Tottenham Hotspur shirt on at this time. As a West Ham supporter, this offends me. But Ryan Howard deserves credit just for not supporting one of the Big Four. The bar is set incredibly low but were he sporting a Manchester United jersey in this photo, I’d probably have a few more snide comments about his contract in this piece.
