Buck’s helmet is fantastic. I almost don’t want him to use it because it looks so good…

I talked to Buck about his helmet last week and he said he had only seen the artist rendering of the helmet, and wouldn’t get to see it until he arrived in New York. After the game yesterday, we talked about it again and he said he loved the end result. The design of the helmet is inspired by the fans. He took suggestions from people on Twitter and Instagram, and the design is a composite of all of the suggestions he received. At the end of the year, he said he will sell the helmet off for charity.
