This one comes from Ranger fan Chris who spotted “Captain Kikass” during the western conference finals this year. Why Captain kikass? Because he even put the C on the front!
This jersey foul comes to us from reader @captain9nyr who wonders if there was a wedding between Brandon Dubinsky and Marc Staal that nobody told us about. And why did they keep Staal’s number 18? Perhaps it lends insight into who would be the man in the relationship. Sorry Brandon.
I’m staying in Toronto this week for work so I couldn’t avoid watching the Maple Leafs mathematically eliminate themselves from the playoffs. As luck would have it, a reader named Michael actually went to the game and managed to snap this shot for us. He included the following comment:
After missing the playoffs for the 7th straight season maybe he can get it changed to “MR. ELIMINATION”… I’m sure that one won’t go out of style anytime soon
Still haven’t decided if Jeremy Lin is the real thing or if Linsanity is just a fad? No problem, we’ve got the perfect jersey for those unwilling to commit (or just too cheap to get a proper jersey)
This probably isn’t the best thing to wear when trying to adopt a puppy.
Today’s Jersey Foul comes to us from reader Derrick. I’ll let him explain it in his own words:
Found these two idiots at the NY Giants game a few weeks ago. They were way too excited about being at the game in general (clearly had not gone to a NFL game previously), but the best part was their “matching” jerseys, with two first names on the back of their jersey – one of them no longer on the team (“Olindo”). Funny enough, “Sage” was back on the team for the game because of the injury to Chad Henne, but only because he had gotten picked up days before. Of course, he was then placed on the non-football-injury list before the game, so that’s even more hilarious. The guy in the pic definitely bought the jersey years ago . . .
Oh, and they were so proud of their jerseys, that they were excited for me to take their pictures from the back. Classic.
Football season is back in full swing, and with that comes the influx of stupid jerseys. It’s one thing to own a terrible jersey foul, it’s another thing to have a jersey foul custom made, but it’s even worse to try and pawn off your foul on somebody else.
Today’s jersey foul comes courtesy of eBay where dlgautographs is trying to unload this monstrosity. Sadly, they just might do it too because it’s actually signed by 4 Jets that most of America has never heard of. If you ask me, he should have asked for a Jersey Exchange instead.
If you’re building a shrine to terrible jerseys in your man cave and can’t resist this Pièce de résistance then by all means place a bid.
Saw this ebay auction in a tweet by @scottyhockey
I don’t know what’s worse. The Jersey foul itself, the fact that somebody paid $140 for it originally, or the fact that he admits it was a grown man who ordered the #69 on his custom jersey.
Thankfully nobody has yet bid on this jersey foul.
Today’s jersey foul is really a link to tapeleg’s blog where he points out a sakic jersey that’s missing an obvious element. Perhaps this guy was buying it on the installment plan? Next time he might want to pick a rookie – increasing the chances that his player won’t retire before he finally completes the jersey.

Because nothing says “I’m Irish” like a Cabrera jersey. I’ve never understood why people make special St Patricks day jerseys anyway. Of course, if I had to pick one player who most likely celebrates a holiday dedicated to binge drinking, it would definitely have to be Miguel Cabrera. So I guess it’s only a half foul here.
