In honor of the Super Bowl, I’d like to discuss an oversight in football attire. Recently my boyfriend bought a Troy Polamalu replica football jersey. According to him, replica football jerseys “can be a beautiful thing.” But there’s one issue – they’re the exact same size and shape on him as they are on the football players – and he’s not wearing any padding.
Football players wear huge shoulder and chest pads under their jerseys, so the arms and chest look 3 sizes too big, even though the torso fits. Oh well – I guess it’s too much to ask for a little fashion sense in football. At least wearing a jersey is better than showing up to a game like this guy.
