Well, my friends – the wait is over, and the results are in.
Are you wondering how all of this came to be? A lot of people have questioned what piqued my interest on the subject at hand.
Here it is, you curious critters:
Last week commenced the Eagles preseason training camp, which, every year, has me fervently checking blogs, stats, and leaves me with the Philadelphia Eagles homepage consistently open. Inevitably, the habitual shopper in me ended up on the Eagles gear page (of course), and to my horror, remembered the time of “put your name on the back of your team’s jersery” – and seriously wondered, do people still do that? (and, more importantly, why did they ever start?)
This created the ever-controversial “what is worse” war – to which, Cotter (who I had initially addressed this question) and myself put it up to the fate of the Gods, taking twitter and facebook polls, asking all of you (to our horror!) which was better.
Here is what you guys decided.
Out of the 80 of you that so kindly responded to my inquriy, I was flabergasted, flabergasted! by the results. When I started this journey, I assumed everyone would so obviously agree with me, because to me, it seemed that personalized jerseys was the obvious choice.
Thanks for proving me wrong. Jerks.
This is the actual breakdown:
Those who agree with yours truly and say that your own name on the back of a jersey is the ultimate sin – 27
Those of you who are avid haters of the color pink, especially when presented in jersey form on gameday – 51
Those of you who like to throw a good curve ball, saying wearing the wrong team’s jersey is the worst – 2
The grand total of you who gave up 2.5 seconds of your life to serve the better cause of my often ignored blog = 80
I’m no mathmetical genius here, but this is what? 24 extra votes that go to the deteste of pink jerseys, which is 63 percent of the total votes. Way to prove me wrong, all.
If you missed out on the fun, I have added a poll – feel free to contribute below.
Something I feel that I should point out, at this juncture, is that the pink jerseys, whether you love or despise them, donate a part of the proceeds to support breast cancer research – and that is something I hope, regardless of how you feel on the subject, we can all get behind.
Football season is almost upon us, gang. Can’t wait.
See you at the bar.
