That is about the only thing I own that says Red Sox.


Only non Red Sox baseball shirt I have says "Yankees Choked" on it. :-? :-D ;-) :-b

I only own one MLB jersey, Jacoby's. Wife owns a few. Papelbon, Chipper, Tek, Beckett. A couple more I think. Kid's got a Papi jersey. As far as football jerseys it's a bit different. The kid's got a TO jersey from the Niners (me) and Eagles (wife) and a Raiders Moss jersey (his favorite player). There are only a handful of players from other teams whose jerseys I would consider wearing. Lincecum and Joba (Husker) are probably the only MLB ones I can think of right now and Brian Dawkins is probably the only NFL one.

And I agree, I think it's incredibly tacky to wear different teams at the same time (shirt different from hat). I caught myself do that once though. I have my main Sox hat and just threw it on as a habit without realizing I was wearing my Niners sweatshirt. :-B

I think your wife owning more jerseys than you violates some man law.

I think it has more to do with my dislike for wearing oversized shirts, while there happen to be those jerseys with women in mind that fit a girly figure. Maybe I'll try one of hers on sometime. That would probably break a man law there too wouldn't it? Honestly, though, my wife owns a lot more clothing than I do so it is not unusual that she owns five or so more articles than I do of anything. :*)

Then buy a soccer jersey, silly. :-D

No, seriously, most of them are a good fit and in fact, some run a little tight (Nike and Puma are guilty of this, Adidas are a bit big on the contrary), but nothing as oversized as those lousy gangsta wannabe football jerseys. :-b ;-D

The only pieces of sports clothing I have is an '05 White Sox world champion shirt and a Chicago Bears hat. (Don't worry, I don't wear them at the same time. ;-D )

I never got into baseball jerseys. It's probably just me, but when I see some dude wearing a ball player's jersey somewhere other than the park, it seems out of place.

The odd part is guys like Omaha on the Lightside are secretly fixated with working skirts for work around the house.
