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.

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)

I’m not sure what’s worse: Taking the lord’s name in vain, or placing it on a Celtics jersey. Plus, number 20? I’m not sure about you but Jesus wears #1 in my book. It could be worse though, it could be a Nets jersey.

Thanks to @SurtifiedLady for finding this one and uploading it to twitpic.

This one should be a game in the back of today’s newspaper.  How many Jersey Fouls can you spot in this image?

1.  Shanahan doesn’t play for Detroit anymore – update your jersey

2.  Starter jersey?  Spend the extra $20 next time.

3. Cutoff sleeves?  really?

He’s standing in the beer line, but I guarantee if we took a photo a few seconds later we’d see the clerk hand him a wine cooler.

cutoff sleeves?

Saw this guy at the wings vs canucks game in Detroit wearing a Canucks sweater and a Wings hat.  If not for the hat, I’d forgive the fact that his Kesler jersey is missing the A – but this guy’s got bigger allegiance issues to worry about before we get into those details.

Welcome to JerseyFoul. We’ll get into explaining what a Jersey Foul is in a few posts, but for now I can’t think of a better jersey foul to start the site off with than this on:

Usually it’s the fans who commit jersey fouls, not the entire team, but thanks to a mixup the Washington Nationals sported these mispelled beauties during the 2010 season.  My question though is did anybody actually notice? I mean, why on earth would they wear the mispelled ones when they have to have had an old set lying around somewhere else.

I’ve heard of negro league day and spanish day, but it looks like Washington is also having illiterate day.
