Teams that should have St. Patrick's Day Jerseys


Recommended Posts

Most of them already beat you to it.


In Chicago the only ones who don't are the Bears and Cubs. Either way all you're doing is recoloring the jerseys (poorly I must say). A St. Pattys Day jersey thread is fine, if you put some creativity into it at least.

Also Chicago is becoming less Irish. I say that living in an extremely Irish area on the Southside of Chicago with grandparents off the boat from the Emerald Isle.

From a U of I study:

"Irish was estimated to be the top ancestry in Chicago in 2010, closely followed by German and Polish, which were ahead two decades ago. But the Irish-American population has dropped since 1990 by about 16.4 percent, or about 39,000 people, according to U.S. census data."

I disagree with Football teams wearing St Patrick's Day jerseys. They play 16 games a year. Giving over a whole home game and therefore 1/16th of what you wear for the season is too much.

It's a bit different in the other sports where you are wearing your St Patrick's day designs for 1 day out of dozens of games isn't such an issue.
