I saw this on Twitter from @megums and couldn’t resist mentioning it. In fact, I couldn’t do a better job of humiliating this fan than @crownedRoyal_LA does in his blog post. So I’m just going to link to the blog post instead.
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.
While we normally don’t guarantee posts on weekends, we couldn’t resist sharing this one that we saw in the Winnipeg Free Press about one of the best named minor league clubs, the Hersey Bears.
It appears the bears have actually added the Manitoba Moose logo to their jerseys in what can only be seen as gloating over last season. That’s low – even for a minor league team – and for that we give it a minor foul.
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: email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Ok there’s no actual “foul” here, but this picture is still pretty foul itself. Technically there’s nothing wrong with the Jets Jersey, but there’s still enough wrong with New Jersey that we felt like we had to include this one. Maybe we should call this one a PR foul. Come on, you own the Jets, what are you doing being photographed with Snooki? Karma noticed. The Jets lost this one 10-6 to the Dolphins. Maybe next time they’ll get her a Giants jersey.
I know San Jose is still a relatively new team and california isn’t really a hockey hotbed, but come on man. No Hull ever played for San Jose. 42 may be Douglass Adam’s answer to everything, but it’s not a number that anybody named Hull ever wore. In fact, the last San Jose player to wear the 42 sweater was Tom Preissing in the 2006 season – and he’s currently on IR somewhere in Finland.
Plus, a Koho jersey? That’s got to be at least 4 years old. Wearing an old jersey to the game is one thing, but wearing your beer league team’s jersey is an entirely different level of foul. We’re calling this one Flagrant as it definitely warrants a multi-game suspension.
Also, don’t forget to follow us on twitter: @JerseyFoul
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 email@example.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.
This one just happened to sit in front of me at the Detroit Lions thanksgiving day game – against the Patriots – two teams for which Hines Ward has never played. I was tempted to lay into her for being on the bandwagon, but I take pity on all football fans in Detroit. Haven’t they been through enough? Maybe she just couldn’t bear to be seen in a Lions jersey – and who could blame her? I’ll let this one off with a warning.
