Christmas Jersey Number?

Submitted by Blazefire on October 9th, 2013 at 11:24 PM

If you, like me, need to replace your ratty and ancient jersey and are putting it on your Christmas list this year, what number do you ask for?

I'm thinking either 87, 27 or 21.

I have a throwback Grady jersey that converts into a basketball jersey. I wear it every Saturday. On Sunday I wear my Lebron high school jersey and durning the week I mix it up with classics like wade Boggs or a Brett the Hitman hart singlet.

Fans of a certain age shouldn't own / wear team jerseys. (guess they can wear team  jersies?) 

Anyway . . . I don't know how old you are. If you are an active student, and below 25, go for it.

But when I think of adult men wearing jerseys, here's the prevailing image coming to mind:

To each their own, but that's not an image I like.

On the other hand, if you're a woman, jerseys are just fine:

Better yet:

with adults wearing jerzeys to a game.  I agree its out of place when worn in public to no particular sporting event.  Face paint and wigs on middle aged grown adults?  yeah, thats dumb.

 

Like the above poster noted jerseys also allow for another layer of warm clothing.  Nothing wrong with them imo.

Yeah I'm not a fan of wearing them to places other than sporting events/game watching events (although if people want to I say go for it), but I do own several Michigan/wings jerseys and wear them when I go to games. I'm not a fan of people wearing basketball jerseys because I think it looks weird when you're not playing hoops, but again, if someone wants to then they should go for it because what some random dude on the Internet thinks about fashion means fuck all.

Just get #21, and it will be good every year. Hemingway, Roundtree, Gallon, prolly Chesson or Darboh next year... and on and on forever. FOOOOORRRRREEEEVVVVVEEEER (Sandlot reference).
