Pats Guy plays it Straight with Fab Five By Gayle Fee and Laura Raposa Friday, December 5, 2003While Bill Belichick is our No. 1 candidate for a ``Queer Eye'' makeover, another member of the New England Patriots may actually get some real tube time with the Fab Five.
Matt Light, the 305-pound tackle with the weird beard, has volunteered to go mano-a-mano with Carson, Kyan, Jai, Thom and Ted to see if he can go from 72 to GQ!
``Someone called from the league who was going to pitch the idea to `Queer Eye' and he asked if we might have a player who was interested,'' said Pats spokesguy Stacey James. ``I said, let me float it by a couple of guys.''
James said he had Light in mind right from the start.
``Matt just has this great sense of humor,'' he said, ``and he seemed like the kind of guy who would just go with it.''
Turns out, the big guy is a big fan of Bravo's hit makeover show.
``He said `I watch that all the time. I'm just what they're looking for. I'm all scruffy and I have no fashion sense.' ''
Ya gotta love a guy who knows himself!
Light is also a big hunter and fisherman - in other words, the perfect foil for the urban Prada pushers. He and the Pats are awaiting word from Carson & Co. So do stay tuned.
