I did my usual spot on the Seibel and Starkey show on 93.7 The Fan today and Joe Starkey asked me if I understood the jersery thing–meaning grown men wearing team jerseys with their favorite players’ names on the back.
I told him I didn’t get it at all and I don’t.
So help me out here. As I said on the radio, I can not for a second picture my dad walking into Forbes Field wearting a Bobby Layne Jersey or Pitt Stadium wearing a Kent Nix jersey. It just doesn’t compute.
When did this start?
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that it’s a bad thing or that I’m better than anybody else because I don’t have any desire to wear a Sidney Crosby jersey to a Penguins game.
I just don’t get it.
Kids under, say, 14, I understand.
Young girls, maybe even young women, OK.
Forty and fifty something men? Don’t get it. Help me.
