Expanding my jersey horizons

About a month or so ago, I talked about having gotten a brand-spanking new soccer jersey and how it was nice to have something other than Mexican club jerseys... not that there's anything wrong with that but I like variety. And I had no MLS gear of any club save for the local sides and I wanted to get an MLS shirt from a club that doesn't play its home games at Home Depot Center.

My wife recently went on a business trip and brought me back something that fits the bill. It's not an MLS jersey but it's the next best thing (and saved about $50 in the process). So now I have something to wear out and promote the league I spend 99 percent of my time around.

As for the shirt, well, at the risk of alienating some of our loyal readers...




How do I look in orange?

It's only fair to expand the MLS promotion options. I wear my Chivas USA and Galaxy T-shirts around town all the time.

I have yet to get asked about them, but I've done my part getting the logos out there.

BOOOOOO!!!

Related: I bought an orange Adidas shirt in lieu of fluoro yellow for when I am biking. I always wonder if FCD fans are going to see me and think I have turned coat.

Nope, sometimes orange is orange.

As for you...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

I can forgive the LA clubs thing if they truely are your local team. But to go for Houston as the next one? Sweet lord, what's next? Letting Michael Jackson babysit your kids????

Not bad, l.b. Just one thing: How many jerseys can one person wear? I have two in my collection and I don't wear them; that's why I don't collect them.

BTW, how many jerseys from Mexican clubs do you have? Any from, let's say, Leon or Puebla or Correcaminos or something exotic like that?

You have lost weight, looking good!

I need to go on a diet, just jogging and playing twice a week aint doing it. Now I'm just a chubby guy that can run. :/

Thanks, a.ruiz! Down 125 or so.

Joe, I've got the following Mexican jerseys: Toluca, Pachuca, Atlas, Chivas, Cruz Azul, Morelia, Santos. I think my favorite one is Morelia because it's bright yellow and has a cool logo of Sol cerveza on the back. The Pachuca one is cool too, but I don't think I'll wear it on Sunday ;)

I can't believe that person asked "how many jerseys can one person wear"? I'm a girl and I love my jersey collection!! I also get a lot of use out of it. I have at least 11 soccer jerseys(not including the Blanco and Chivas rip offs I get at the "supermall") that I can think of off the top of my head and I would wear them all on the daily. I also don't really have any style so that might have something to do with it. ;) How some people are with sneakers, I am with jerseys so I love the post!

I disaprove of the Dynamo jersey, but understand that all teams have bandwagon fans. On a serious note, the weight-loss is amazing, congratulations.
