Happy Shirsey Day

I'm declaring August 2nd Shirsey Day. Since everything has a day except for shirseys, it deserves one. If you're not exactly sure what one is, Urban Dictionary has the definition:

 one of those T-shirts that looks like a jersey. shirt and jersey combined.

I don't own a lot of them but I've started to accumulate them. 

Let's begin.

Blake Griffin was one of my favorite Clippers and when he was traded, I thought I could snag a jersey with his name on it. Burlington had those jerseys with the iron numbers and I don't like those. I got a shirsey instead and it looks pretty sharp.

 Apologies for the winkles because I put it down in my closet in a corner and forgot about it for a couple of months. I paid $6 for a shirsey that originally was $32.

While the Dodgers were making their run to the World Series last year, Burlington had many Dodgers shirseys on sale. They had Belinger, Puig, Turner, and this one:

Yu Darvish was traded from the Texas Rangers to the Dodgers for their playoff push. He pitched in Game 7 of the 2017 World Series and it didn't go so well. The Dodgers didn't resign him during the off season and he signed with the Cubs. Currently he's on the DL and A-Rod doesn't approve of the way he's rehabbing.

Anyway, it took many months for this shirsey to go on clearance. I paid $9 for a shirsey that Burlington was selling for $17. This goes for $18 on 

Let's see we covered basketball and baseball; football is next.

Teddy Bridgewater played for the Minnesota Vikings for three seasons. In what would have been his third season, he suffered a gruesome knee injury that was so serious he almost lost his leg. He was able to recover and play the following season for the Vikings. Currently he's on the New York Jets. I like the shirsey more than the preceding ones because it looks like a jersey. The material on it is very nice. I paid $5 at Ross for this and I can't find the original price online but I'm sure it was at least $30.

A Slight Rant

The Milwaukee Brewers auctioned off their Fourth of July jerseys last week. Mike Zagurski's wasn't included with them. Kind of strange but maybe it will listed later. 

This upsets me.

Boltman Costume

If you have more than $5000 to spare, you can buy the Boltman costume. Who is Boltman? Boltman was the unofficial mascot of the San Diego Chargers. He also went to a game in Carson and got kicked out for not removing his head for security. No, I'm not buying it and it isn't worth $5000.

More Angels Merchandise

Small Mike Zagurski update: he has an infinite ERA with the Brewers. He didn't have a good outing in his first appearance and he's still with team. Also, the Brewers and every team in MLB is wearing their patriotic jerseys, which means I know which jersey I'm going to get next.  

On to the main event...

Mike Zagurski is back. Breaking news.

I'm interrupting the blog and it's many posts about jerseys I won at auction I didn't want and the many hats I don't have room for to post this: Mike Zagurski is back in majors with the Brewers. This is great cause the 4th of July is coming up and maybe I can score one of his jerseys when they auction it off. Most teams do that coming off a special occasion.

Oh I will have a hat post coming up in the next few days.

Albuquerque Isotopes Star Wars Night Jersey

A few weeks ago I posted that I was browsing and saw a bunch of Star Wars jerseys up for auction. I put a bid in for one a few days later and kind of hoped I was going to be outbid because I'm not the biggest Star Wars fan and it was quite a bit of money. Anyway, I won.

Columbus Crew Jersey

The Columbus Crew were one of the original MLS teams. Their current owner wants to move the team to Austin, Texas. As someone who lost their team to a different city, I know how much it hurts. I'm against it because I know there are a lot of Crew supporters in Columbus.

Enough of the soap box stuff; jersey time.
