Back in double-ya double-ya two, there must have been this certain style that penetrated the ranks of the soldiers fighting in the forests of the Ardennes, the skies above the English Channel, the seas of the Pacific and of course in the dank jungles of the Philippines. Absolute bad asses all of them….but I have no idea what it was about their lids…e.g. their ‘covers’, helmets or dress hats. All tilted to the side; all exposing foreheads; all just….well un ‘PRO’ or in this case ‘un GI’.
So as I looked at young Prince Albert (do the Belgies actually know what the endearing term they have given their young star means?), something looked familiar…picture after picture I observed of him and I couldn’t nail it. Then suddenly…the helmet!
Homie has got to figure his stuff out. Either he’s got a maligned skull or he hasn’t figured out how simple it is to use the Bell Volt’s adjustment system which is one of the simplest and easiest to use on earth. Or…maybe it’s his style. Don’t know. It really could be that his forehead is just obscenely large….an even more prolific need for better all around head protection for Belgium’s new Zoopastar, lest he fall into the guy on the left’s situation. Perhaps due to flowing off course and into some of those infamous hedgerows that cause the US Army such drama when storming through Belgium and messing up his cute little mug.
To be fair to Niels, I’ve seen Erwin V rock his helmet sideways…quite often. But then again, that home boy has mad troubles with his headwear.
OK, I am done with my PRO bashing for the day. Resume your regularly scheduled programming.
