Athletes wear the darnedest things. 

Big Lead reports that those onesies beginning to pop up around various corners of the Internet have a name, and it may cause you to roll your eyes straight out of your respective heads. 

They are Swagga Suits, and they are a hit with athletes who have the confidence to wear just about anything you give them. 

On Tuesday, Shot of Ginn brought fans this picture of Broncos linebacker Von Miller chilling out at Rehab in Las Vegas wearing something similar––an outfit we described as a onesie

You can see how one might take to calling this a onesie. Dress it up and throw sprinkles all over it, the thing is still a "onesie."

Well, it seems you collegiate fans can get in on the craze with similarly designed fashion available at SwaggaSuits.com.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer has a full report, as well as images of former Washington State player and current Warriors guard Klay Thompson showing off his onesie. Sorry, Swagga Suit. 

Huskies fans are in luck, too. Here are images of former Huskies player Jon Brockman showing off his Barney the dinosaur Swagga Suit. 

I have no idea who we are anymore, America. Aren't we the nation who once did anything we could to shed the itchy and confining wardrobe that is a onesie?

Well, little Ralphie from A Christmas Story would be appalled by what he might find in the sports landscape at the moment. 

I have proclaimed that I would love a onesie of my own, but such comments were made in jest. I never knew grown men would plunk down good money to order a ridiculous outfit just so they could wear it with a straight face. 

While whatever Miller is wearing might be different than these new Swagga Suits, it's clear the onesie craze is not going away anytime soon. 

It's settled: Athletes will wear just about any outrageous item. We are one unfortunate decision away from NBA players showing up to postgame interviews in diapers.
