Ah but what if you share a last name with a player, and didn't have it specially made?

And of course what about a Blackhawks jersey with "Griswold" on it at Christmas?

I have no problems with people wearing jerseys. I have a Packers jersey, and my boyfriend has several Red Wings jerseys that he looks very nice in...I love it when he wears them.

I could never get into wearing jerseys, but I don't think it's a problem if others wear them. Although I draw the line when they put their own names on the back.

i'll allow it


also... if you were not alive when a player played, you are not allowed to wear his throwback jersey.

That is an excellent rule.

There's incentive to keep it.

That sounds pretty fair to me.

I also think that there needs to be a rule that once a player leaves a team (free agency, trade, release) you cannot wear the jersey anymore, especially if it's a tshirt jersey. Don't tell me it's a throwback either.

I saw a slew of Bellhorn, Pokey, and Nomar shirts at fenway. Come on folks, retire them and pony up 20 bucks for a new one.

I'm reading this as I wear my old Nash Mavs shirt.

Thing about it is the new shirts don't fit as well and they had no white Josh Howard shirts the last time I was at the AAC.

Maybe I should get one of the green P Diddy alternate ones.

I've heard this from you before. I thought you were a good man back then and I continue to think so.

Any friend of Dirk's is a friend of mine.
