First Jersey
Mon Dec 15, 2014 4:02 pm
  • So, other than my Texashawks T-Shirt and my aging .Net 12th man shirt, I have spent the past ... er, however long its been arguing with Cowboys fans without an Official NFL Seahawks Jersey to back up my commitment. Mainly because, well, they seem ridiculously overpriced to me and I've always been overcome with a rush of less frivolous things I needed to be spending money on every time I tried to get myself to buy one.

    In any case, my wife came to the rescue and I got a shiny new 'hawks blue ET3 #29 in the mail, today. (I'm surprised she managed to get through the entire day of me ranting about how vigorously the Niners suck without tipping me off, yesterday. Well played, wife.)

  • Awesome job Wifey. Congrats on the ET jersey, dude.

    I don't have a Seahawks jersey for much of the same reason, but the last few years I've been hoping maybe a parent would come through around the holidays. No luck so far, but I've been dropping hints to my girlfriend that "Earl Thomas is my favorite player" and "a Seahawks jersey would be the best gift". I think this is the year. She's asked over and over again the last couple games "#29, he's you're favorite player, right?", almost as if double checking... 8)

    If she does get that for you, say with disgust that #39 was your favorite player. The look on her face should be priceless.

    Haha she'd punch me in the face after I tell her I'm kidding. Seriously. She's a redhead.

  • Got to wear the bad boy to work, today. Diggin' the new job's dress code (It's a tech startup. In honor of this, I've set the Pied Piper logo as my wallpaper).

    In the meantime, turned out one of our sales guys knows ET3 from back in his Orange, TX days.
