My Great Debate

 

Like most Broncomaniacs, I'm always on the frugal (more on this later) lookout for anything Broncos to add to my collection -- from hats to wristbands to (I kid you not) a poncho from Ensenada, if it has Broncos on it, I'm likely in a buying mood. So when my wife stumbled upon an official Broncos orange jersey (I "only" have a blue Terrell Davis jersey -- God love him) that just happened to be my size for $10 at the local thrift shop, you know I was all over it.

That was, until I got a closer look...

...that revealed the number 6.

Aw, crap -- it's a he-who-shall-not-be-named jersey.

Now what? I've desperately wanted an orange jersey for a while, but haven't been able to justify spending the cash as I'm a card-carrying member of "this downward economy" where all disposable income has gone "poof" faster than a teen's tweet.

Six. SIX! Nay! I won't write it again, lest I invoke the beast of failures past.

So the debate furthers...

Is the "six" itself truly offensive? No. It is but a number. Yes, a number most famously worn by an individual who is now revered at the level of the scent of eau de Greeley...but still, just a number.

Is it the captain's "C" patch emblazoned on the chest of the jersey? Hell no -- that thing is boss.

Ah! It is, in fact, the name of he-who-shall-not-be-named. Yes! I declare it so. And so knowing it helps me none for it is in fact part of the jersey. An integral...sewed on part of the jersey!? Mercy me, yes! A closer look shows that I might indeed carefully -- very carefully -- be able to remove the offending name from the jersey without losing the integrity of said prized possession. The debate is over -- I win, Voldemort (D'oh!) loses!

And so the purchase is made. And to the tailor (a.k.a. my father-in-law) it goes next.

And so I will have a nameless, orange, number 6 with boss captain patch jersey for $10 for this season.

My question to you -- should I put a new name on the back? And if so -- what name should it be?

Many thanks, fellow bretheren.

Go Broncs, 2010!
