Would you agree with me when I say that most men are pretty passionate about sports? And when it comes to their favorite sports team, they’re even more passionate?
Would it be safe for me to assume that if you have one of these kinds of men living in your house, you have (or he has) purchased any number of ridiculously expensive sports team jerseys?
What do you do when a beloved team member turns traitorous and has the nerve to leave the team, and it’s his jersey that is living in your man’s closet?
After the initial blow up – then the subsequent pouting and tantrum – does that man have the nerve NOT to wear that $200 plus jersey because he refuses to wear the traitor’s name on his back?
Not in my house!
Basketball season is winding down to a close, and the basketball jersey my husband hasn’t worn because of player defect, has seen zero action. I’ll give him all the credit, though: one afternoon, he came to me, asking for the unthinkable – to rip the player’s name off his beloved jersey so he could wear it.
“Whaaat?” was my initial reaction. I couldn’t imagine taking a seam ripper to something we paid good money on. What if I messed it up? What if it was ruined? All that money down the tubes. I asked him why he couldn’t just wear it as it was, but he responded with, “I don’t wanna look stupid!” Imagine my face, people…
So, out came the seam ripper and off came the lettering:
I don’t have a “before” picture because we can’t show this player’s name (‘we’ don’t like him anymore). I also don’t have an “after” picture, because when I finished it (and let me toot my own horn here, I ripped the seams off that sucker like nobody’s business), it was snatched out of my hands very quickly – my husband had it on his back and was out the door in thirty seconds flat.
All in all, I’m just glad that thing is getting some use again. Save that money, baby.
