Players in the "wrong" uniforms


Recommended Posts

Saw the Penguins meeting with Obama on the news this morning where the presented him with a custom jersey. I couldn't find a pic of that but he sure has gotten his share of custom jerseys. This may be more of a case of playa with the wrong jersey since I can't picture him wearing any of these.

That one always pisses me off, since he was gone about 3 months later.

Here is one that should have been on the list for sure...

Johnny U in...Powder Blue?

Couldn't agree more that that should have been on the list. That is one of the first ones that comes to mind for me.

As for Willie Mays and Hank Aaron, those never seem quite as odd for me because both moves represented a return to the cities where they spent significant parts of their careers (in Aaron's case, a majority of his career). They are both even wearing the same caps logos they wore in those cities, just in different colors.

Johnny Unitas in a Chargers uniform? Definitely no way to finish a pro football career.

Of course Obama did appoint Dan Rooney as ambassador to Ireland.

But thats the fun of sports we can like or hate a team for any reason. The could be a darn good reason or a silly one like mine. I was never a huge Sox fan. I owned the jersey because it looks good and I got it dirt cheap. But because Obama is a fan I won't wear it. Just like I passed up on a sweet vintage Eagles t-shirt because they signed Mike Vick. There are certian bands/singers I don't listen to because I think the singer or somebody in the band is a total d-bag. It's no different than somebody buying something because of a celebrity endorsement. I am choosing to not buy or wear something because of an "endorsement".
