New Jersey

I was listening, on twitter, to all the hate and shade being thrown Brett Favre’s way, including the subsequent lack of ability to talk shit when he wound up kicking Green Bay’s ass the whole night, and I was reminded that I wanted to do a post about jerseys. We never really have discussed exactly when a jersey is outdated or just looks silly on an owner. I’ll use myself as an example. I’ve probably spend close to $400 total on my last 2 jerseys. One white Brett Favre New York Jets jersey and one white Reggie Bush New Orleans Saints jersey. Personally, I dont have ANY buyer’s remorse for either jersey. But of course, I have to wonder if it would be silly for me to wear the Favre jersey since he currently plays for another team. Is that a sports fashion faux pas? Not b/c he’s played for another team but b/c he’s ACTIVE for another team. Is there an issue here? When I bought my Bush jersey, it was a no-brainer. NOW? Well, I just hope he’s still even on the team as of next year. I’ll always root for him but even I cant make a great case for why the Saints should keep him around.

There’s also the dilemma of what your jersey should look like. Granted, football and hockey jerseys ALWAYS look right no matter what…but basketball jerseys? No. If you look like you’ve swallowed a basketball, you prob shouldnt wear a basketball jersey. In some cases, it looks like 2 of the actual player can fit in your jersey. Not a good look. Super fat guy Kobe Bryant fan…maybe consider a t-shirt. Also, PLEASE retire your jersey after its washed out and depleted. There’s little worse than a old, beat up jersey that you only use to lounge around the house. Not that I know anyone who does that. *wink*

What jerseys do you own? Do you know of any jersey fashion faux pas?
