I have a Martin jersey I wear. 2 practice jerseys, and a HNIC jersey as well. Wear to games only. I don't get the whole jersey as casual wear thing.
I bought the Martin jersey because I like him. Good dman. And I think he's hot.
Yeah, I said it. LOL
Are you a girl? Then it's fine. Girls watch sports and pick their favorite players "because they are hot". And that's fine. They aren't real sports fans though, and most couldn't carry a solid conversation about the sport itself. No big deal, at least as long as they don't pretend they are deeper than superficially liking a player because of his looks.
But when a guy is doing that, unless he is sporting a Danica Patrick or Maria Sharapova T-shirt? Well... it's sort of the same reason right? I think you know what I'm saying. I left the WNBA out since those women don't like men.
And I endorse Jesse's faceoff factor. It's a throwback to when adults talked about sports. Fun to actually LEARN something about what it is we are seeing out there on the field of play. Makes you a better viewer that can appreciate what is going on, and less likely to sound like a moron when criticizing or praising a team/coach/play.
