Here is what you do with old jerseys

A couple years back somebody wrote a story in the Westword about fashion as it related to guys wearing jerseys.  Basically calling them dumb.  I wrote the following response (have to laugh at the cutler reference now) and I hope it gives you reason to hang on to those old jerseys!

Ok, first of all kids should wear Bronco jerseys everyday. If you want your kid to be a leader but not a self promoter, put that kid in a sweet Rod Smith jersey and tell him that he has to 'earn' that jersey everyday, or tomorrow he gets a Griese. (Which symbolizes whiny pansy’s who fall down driveways). If your kid falls off of his bike, toss on a worn out Eddie Mac jersey and tell him to quit crying or you'll show him the video of Eddie breaking his leg. Your kid graduates valedictorian? He's earned the Elway. Going out on top. My point is, we should support our jersey wearing brethren, not berate them. If you're a contractor and are hoping to out bid for a specific contract, throw on a Champ Bailey jersey, you’re destined for a take-away. It's not about the fashion, it's about the passion. That nifty polyester weave holds in it enough magic to outweigh the fashion faux pas. See a guy in a Tommy Nalen jersey? Don't talk to him, he won't talk back. See a guy in a throwback Shannon Sharpe? Don't talk to him, he won't shut up. Wear a Steve Atwater jersey to the grocery store and marvel how everyone just stays out of your way. Jersey's have their place in our society, Stephanie. So the next time you see a college boy in an alternate home Cutler jersey, know that he is just young and finding his place in the world. If you see a fat guy wearing a Randy Gradishar with beer all over it, walk up to him, shake his hand, tell him he should be in the hall of fame, and buy him another beer. It's the passionate thing to do.
