Rip Hamilton is bringing masks to Brazil for Clint Dempsey

You know, just in case the U.S. soccer star that suffered a broken nose needs them.

Once upon a time, Rip Hamilton broke his nose and was forced to wear a mask. He played so well in that stretch that he kept the mask on even after the nose healed, and one of the NBA's most iconic accessories was born.

Once upon a time a few days ago, US soccer star Clint Dempsey broke his nose. He's resisting the temptation to wear a mask, but that's not going to stop Hamilton from trying to convince him otherwise. Who better to make the case that Dempsey should look like this against Portugal?
