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

This probably isn’t the best thing to wear when trying to adopt a puppy.

There’s several fouls happening in this shot, but you’ve gotta give them credit because it’s still pretty damn hilarious. Looking at this picture makes me wish that Tiger Woods wore a jersey. I’d have enough content to keep this site running for years.

This one comes to us courtesy of @twomins4hooking via twitter. She says: “Spotted this jersey foul at the USA/SUI game on NYE. Being a USA fan: you’re doing it wrong.”

I don’t think there’s any event he could wear this jersey to without a flag being thrown. It’s kinda sorta almost USA themed, but Jagr? Really?

Thanks for your submission @twomins4hooking – this is definitely a foul (and a great find too.) Keep those submissions coming via twitter: @jerseyfoul or via email: photos@jerseyfoul.com Have a great weekend – be on the lookout for those jersey fouls

Today’s first jersey foul comes to us from Detroit – because that’s where I live and I go to lots of Wings games. It’s also a sign that we need more submissions. So start sending pictures of offending jerseys to photos@jerseyfoul.com or hit up on twitter: @jerseyfoul with a link and description. We’ll gladly link back to your twitter page or blog. The 2nd one is kind of sort of Detroit related, so I couldn’t really not throw it in could I?

Hey Penguins fans, I know most of you are only bandwagon fans who have no idea what icing actually is, but come on people. A football jersey has no place at a hockey game. What’s that old saying? Wearing a football jersey to a hockey game is like bringing Michael Vick to a dog race. It’s not a good idea. To his credit, at least it was a Pittsburgh vs. Detroit game.

On to part two. Yes Shanahan played for the Rangers, and seeing how he recently retired I’m hesitant to call foul, but what the hell is this thing? I’ll also give a pass to the lady in the Gretzky jersey next to him because, well, he’s Gretzky.

Keep those submissions coming, or I’m going to have to keep attending Detroit sports events – and nobody wants to go to a Pistons game.

This one comes to us courtesy of @ladygunshooter  She tweets: “check out this Jersey Foul from the Canes game tonight. It says: “Brutal 185″. It definitely is brutal.”

Me, I’m wondering if she picked that number based on her weight….

If you’ve got a jersey foul you want to share, send your photo and story to photos@jerseyfoul.com

You can also submit photos and comments to our twitter account: @JerseyFoul

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?

Here’s a “real time” jersey foul sent in by a CSN viewer. Look at the size of those numbers! We’re going to try and avoid the obvious “semin” jokes alone here and take the high road by making fun of how huge that thing is. She could have taken Semin’s actual game used jersey and it wouldn’t be that big on her. Due to the shear volume of Semin here (hey we said we’d try) this one’s getting a major foul.

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.
