Whether or not you like Craig Sager's wardrobe give the man his due. He can do some original features instead of the average run-of-the-mill sideline Q&A with coaches at halftime ("What happened out there?" "How do you feel?" "Why was the offense so bad?"). On Sunday, Craiggers was shown outside of the Sprint Center in Kansas City during NCAA Tournament coverage in a frontloader and actually operating the piece of heavy machinery.

Now how Sager got permission to go inside a frontloader and steer it is the million dollar question. The main thing is that he still wore his loud getup for the feature including blue sneakers. Wearing blue sneakers takes a lot of gumption, but then again that never stopped Sager from wearing loud suits and ties every week during the NBA season.

In addition, Sager's outfit probably violated a few safety codes. It's a good thing he didn't operate the frontloader for long.
