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.
Further proof that we don’t really know what we’re talking about, Doritos was indeed already kit sponsor of Wolverhampton Wanderers from 2002-2004. (HT to GFOP Jim Shemaria)
If the new US Men’s National Team jerseys look familiar, it may be because they are. The Nazis wore them in 1981 flick Victory… Spotter’s Badge goes to GFOP Tim Huddlestone.
On a recent cockfighting holiday, Rog stumbled upon the official NASL club of Men in Blazers — Puerto Rico Islanders. Puerto Rico does do it better. With thanks to Ignacio Rodriguez.
