I never wear anything or do something (hair, beards,'stache,etc) because another did it.

Having said that, these are just cool and I would wear one that identified me as a Texans fan. I don't want one that has a player's name or number.
Very interesting. Thanks for sharing your experiences.

At my HS, letterman jackets were available to anyone who lettered. Not only athletes, but band, choir, orchestra, drama, etc. There were qualifications to letter, but the jackets were not representative of one particular group.

That thought crossed my mind, as well. Especially the fact that letterman jackets are usually associated with high school.

That said, I still think they are great and a good way to build unity among the team.
