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.

http://seafense.blogspot.com/2012/10/some-love-for-brandon-browner.html

So my girl pulls up the link of the jersey she got me and much to my astonishment...

Image

:34853_doh: 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.

I'd keep it. It was a gift. No one in the stadium cares about the exact color or make of a jersey, as long as it is Seahawks.

If she didn't pay too much for it, I would keep it...it actually looks kind of cool for a knock off! I like the neon green outline around the name.

What he said. It's worth a lot because she took the time to find out what you wanted, then went and got it. It looks really cool and it's definitely unique.

And you can't get the Browner Wolf Grey because he hasn't worn it yet. I know, bummer but that's the way it is.

She paid $130 for it. That's the only reason I thought about sending it back is because that's pretty damn expensive. Or you could look at it as that's the reason why I need to keep it.

I'm gonna wait til it gets here and see how it is and then come to a decision. I'll probably just keep it and buy myself another one. It's actually pretty cool looking.

Haha good point about Browner not actually wearing the jersey. Never even thought of that. Good call.

In agreement - get the right grey jersey (Browner). You can wear it for our second playoff game if it doesn't get here in time for our first.

Okay gotta say ... I'm a girl and if I was your girlfriend I'd want you to get the exact jersey you wanted so you wouldn't at some point ---- deep deep down inside - be pissed that I got you the wrong jersey. If you end up liking the one she got you - by all means keep it and wear it with pride! It's all about what YOU like and want to wear to support your Hawks...:-)

This is what I would do as well. green on that jersey just isn't right, and it's the old logo with the lighter blue on the bottom for God's sake.

However, it is very cool that your women even thought to give you a jersey as a gift.

That's my point too. It represents her (current) best attempt at encouraging you in your obsession. That is priceless.

That's what I'm taking away from this. The fact that she even remembered that and got it for me is pretty awesome.

I actually don't mind the old logo. My cousin, a Cowboys fan, got me this jacket after we made a bet for the Cowboys/Hawks game. It had a note in the packet and everything. "To the biggest Hawks fan I know. Do your thing cuz! Go Hawks!" It's got the old logo and color scheme but it's still pretty sweet and I've gotten the thumbs up of approval from many a Hawk fan I run into now.

Needless to say, the women in my life have been hookin it up for me this year!

That's pretty damn funny and true Riley. Just showed my girlfriend that and we had a pretty good laugh. Great perspective.

I'd return it and get the one you really want. My GF mentioned she wanted a new vaccum a couple months ago so I bought her one for Christmas. It wasn't the exact model she wanted but she was super excited because it was paid for and she could exchange it for the one she really wanted. Didn't take it personal at all because she's still getting the same gift, just a bit different.

Keep it. It was a gift. Even if it's a knock off it's still cool. Just save some dough and buy the one you really want and hang the gift up on the wall.

Screw that. Chicks exchange EVERYTHING. What you should do is exchange that shit for the right one then dump her for not knowing what a REAL Hawks jersey looks like in the first place.

There is nothing funny about this. Do you not read all the Uniform Threads on .NET.

First off, why are you even sharing your time with a woman who googles "seahawks browner jersey" and just assumes to buy the correct one.
This is BRANDON BROWNER!!!

You know what, never mind, it is your fault. Did Ralphie just want a BB gun, any thing. Hell, no, he looked the department store Santa in the eye and proclaimed "I want an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle!"

If you can not let a woman know what you want, maybe you should let her go and date a Canadian. Canadians know how to treat a lady.

But by all means, wear that pathetic rag around and proclaim yourself a "fan" sir. We mock you when you are not looking. Your uncle is also your dad. :stirthepot:

That's my advice too. Unless when you get it the quality is utter crap, you have to keep it. You can't put a price on the effort she made to know what you wanted and to find it.

Screw that noise. Guys put all kinds of effort into buying gifts for chicks and they don't give a shit and a half about it. They return shit we buy them without even pretending they like it. All they care about is what it cost.

And what effort did she really make to find what he wanted? She found some cheap ass Honduras knock off that looks nothing like nothing when images of the ACTUAL jersey are plastered 80 pages thick on a place called "seahawks.com". I know, a real confusing address for the Seahawks official website but i think google might have been able to figure it out eventually.

Yeah, real nice effort. Next christmas try buying her a "Coash" purse or some "Femdi" sunglasses from the Chinese night market and see how well that's recieved...

At first I was Laughing My Ass Off when I saw the pic and your comment about how she mentioned the off-white/laundry thing but then Riley had to go be a Sage.

He's right. Who cares? Nobody who's a real Seahawks fan will give a crap, and it was bought with love.

Rock it.

CANHawk and Hawk Strap, you guys just made my day! I just woke up and decided to see what kind of responses this got and you've had me dying of laughter ever since! Freakin hilarious!

It's pretty awesome to see all the responses this has generated. Seems like everyone is pretty divided on the issue. Thanks for the responses and the laughs!

This site where she got the jersey from has literally every player on the friggin roster. I'm assuming they custom order it for you and then ship it out to you? Or the whole thing could be a complete sham, which would add another hilarious layer to this whole situation. I look forward to it.

For the good sir who wanted to know where she got it from...

I would keep it for sure, even wear it from time to time. But then I would get an Okung jersey to have also.
