Think back on how color has marked memorable times in our lives. Color indicators, like gender, are learned early in life and they mark milestones and ceremonies in a person’s lifetime. At birth, gender is color coded as pink for girls or blue for boys. A christening in a church is marked by a crisp white gown or a white or off-white gown for a bride. In both instances, white signifies a new phase of life. Color can indicate emotion, energy, and personality.
For the late sports reporter, Craig Sager, color marked periods of his career and personality. Sager’s tailor indicated, “Every suit and pair of shoes has a tie to the home team, host city, and time of the year. Many [of his suits] are custom made at shops like Rex in Miami or A. Taghi in Houston.” Sager lived a colorful life, literally.
His colorful wardrobe epitomized his unique sense of style, vibrant personality, and love for the game of basketball. Sager’s style seemed to lighten a tough game by bringing a smile to a player in a post game interview coupled with Sager’s colorful fashion sense. Fan’s of Sager’s sense of style were reflected in a big way while the energetic reporter battled cancer. The #SagerStrong hashtag was created for Sager during chemotherapy. Fans took the #SagerStrong tag a step further wearing colorful eye-catching outfits to NBA games in Sager’s honor. Color punctuated the life of Sager.
