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.
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 MLB.com
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.
