The last few days, I've been itching for a new jersey. I was sure that I would have had one by now but I'm still cool with my Trufant Authentic Jersey that I got a few years ago. As Christmas passed, I figured I'd just wait and buy one before the first Playoff game.
So my girlfriend tells me today about how she's waiting for the rest of my Christmas gift. It's supposed to get here in the mail soon. The first part of the gift was, "Light & Shade: Conversations with Jimmy Page." Needless to say, I was psyched about that.
So she hints at me about how my other gift is something I've wanted for a long time. Something I specifically told her to get me. The first thing that comes to my mind "A Seahawks jersey!?" She smiles and says maybe and then confesses to buying me a Seahawks jersey. So I ask her "which one? what player?" She replies with "the grey Browner." So I'm going nuts right about now! For those who don't know, I'm a HUGE Brandon Browner fan. He's one of my favorite Seahawks and I've wanted his jersey all season long. Despite his suspension, I still love the type of aggression and ruthlesness that Browner brings to the game. Russell's quick on his heels for my favorite Hawk, and favorite athlete, at that. I'll quit it with the Browner bromance but for those who want more blatantly homerish Brandon Browner love, here ya go.
So my girl pulls up the link of the jersey she got me and much to my astonishment...
So I'm sittin there, trying to act like I love it and it's perfect, but I can't hide it. She realizes this and goes "it's not the right one, huh?" I tell her that I've never seen this jersey before and then show her the proper wolf grey. Some of you will get a kick out of this because she looks at it and yells "that's not grey! That's off white, that's a bad laundry job!" It was pretty damn funny.
So I call upon you, my wise sages. I've gotta send this back, right 12's? If I sent it back ASAP I'd probably get it before the first playoff game. Do I stick with my gut and go with Browner? Do I go with blue instead of the grey? Russell Wilson maybe? I wanted to get a unique jersey that not too many people would have. I liked the wolf grey Browner jersey a little more because of that.
I've even thought about getting a Sweezy or Moffitt jersey. I'll keep you guys posted on what goes down.
