Then my head starts spinning..."Do I wear the t-shirt next week?" So I wear the shirt the next Sunday and we win. FML.

In 2011, when we went on the winning streak...the AJ jersey stayed locked up at a location my wife wouldn't tell me of. That way I had no chance to ruin the streak even if I wanted to.

Hate that feeling. I've got a couple of jerseys that are "verboten" because they're tied to bad losses in my mind.

I have even tried wearing the t-shirt UNDER the jersey, no dice. We still lose.

Isn't it funny how random those types of things are? I know that I'm not actively influencing the outcome of the game, yet the odd coincidence of how it keeps happening is just comical.

Cushing
Watt
Smith
Joseph
Manning

All leaders... Demeco was simply the leader of leaders, because he was the elder statesman, but the torch has been passed and people need to get over it.
MSR.

Honestly, I agree on Demeco being the elder statesman of the defense.

The reality is the moment Brian Cushing stepped on the field the whole attitude of the defense changed. It wasn't until last year when they had a capable D Coord did we see results, but Cushing's attitude has seeped into the rest of the team.

Again, sorry if I sounded condescending.
I know many people feel the same way about walking billboards for multi-billion dollar entertainment companies that you do about jerseys.

You walk around with a corporate logo plastered all over yourself and feel good about it. Some walk around with a player or personalized jersey and feel good about. Personally, I do both and consider it part of being a FANATIC. It's fun, it's pointless, and sometimes things in life do not have to have any other purpose than you like it.

I know people who think fanatics for pro sports teams are goofy. I sometimes feel that way about adults and their alma maters.

To each his own.

I live by this creed:

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
~ Eleanor Roosevelt


I could not care less about what people think about me, including those that I deeply care about. I am who I am and vugg people if they don't like it. We'll all be dead in a 100 years so don't sweat the small stuff.

The answer to all your jersey problems is to only buy throwbacks.
