GFOP Michael Tobin sent us this tragic Christmas story. Pray for him…
I began following the Premier League last year and finally declared my loyalty to Everton early this season. To consecrate this union of fan and club I suggested to my fiancee that a Leighton Baines Everton jersey would be an excellent gift idea this holiday season. To assist her in this endeavor, I forwarded along a link to a perfectly “legitimate” Chinese website providing such wares. I believe the Chinese to be hard-working, industrious people with a keen eye for quality and detail at a reasonable price, but mainly I am just cheap. To my delight she ordered me a jersey, which arrived a few days after the holiday. I tore the package open with unabashed giddiness, but my mood would soon be downgraded to perplexed repulsion when I laid my eyes upon the contents. My Chinese friends had manufactured what can only be described as a heinous and revolting spawn resulting from an unholy mating of both of your EPL allegiances.
America’s Team just became more American. Introducing the new Everton home kit by Nike.
Shield your eyes! Nobody wins when Premier League teams fashion away kits. We discuss these unfortunate designs, the relegation debate, and why the English don’t wear sunglasses in the latest pod. It will be up on Grantland tomorrow (damn you, Baseball!).
