Everyone loves football in the United States, there’s no denying it. It’s become the biggest commercial of all-time in that everyone who’s anyone watches the games on TV if they aren’t at the game watching it live where they too are bombarded by advertisements. There is a lot of money to be made for a lot of huge corporations when it comes to football, and the NFL knows that, and that’s why one of the biggest ways that big NFL franchises make money is through their ticket sales and their jersey sales. By owning the rights to the jersey, all of these franchises really bank in when millions of people pay $40 for a t shirt or jersey that they can wear to rep their team.
It’s great for everyone, because everyone loves wearing a football jersey. They’re comfortable, look cool and they have your favorite player’s name on the back. For a little kid that might be the coolest thing in the world, to pretend for a moment that you’re one of the best players in the entire NFL, but for a grown man who’s middle aged and balding and overweight, it might seem a little strange.
It’s weird sometimes seeing grown men wearing their favorite player’s jersey out and about, sometimes not even at the game but a sports bar or just in the streets during their regular lives. It’s not necessarily the most fashionable thing to wear on any other day besides Sunday, but when you do see a grown man wearing an Aaron Rodgers jersey with a big cheesehead on top of his head you have to wonder if this guy is just shameless, or does he actually have a crush on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers?
It’s funny because football is known to be the most masculine of sports where it’s not cool to be gay at all, even though a lot of players in the NFL are coming out as gay in recent years. But when you see these macho guys high fiving and drinking beer watching the game at a sports bar or at the game live and they’re all wearing the names of another man on their backs, you might want to second guess how masculine everything really is.
I’m not saying that it’s gay to wear a football jersey, that’s absolutely ridiculous. People can choose to wear whatever the hell they want, that’s the beauty of America, and football jerseys are a big part of our American freedom. But everyone knows that guy who knows everything upon everything that there is to know about football and certain football players, even things that have nothing to do with football.
Now this would be cute coming from a little kid who looks up to the football player as a hero, but from a grown ass man it’s just really strange. It kind of brings a whole new meaning to Fantasy Football, if you catch my drift. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Please tell me you guys saw this epic play last year for the superbowl! GO PATRIOTS!!
