First Jersey post

Slow news day here, with no good reason to call XM (even though I had some funny stuff, there wasn’t enough to chat about). So finally I’m posting a jersey, which is the first half of the title, so I should get with it.

This is my David Aebischer jersey:

The black strip through his name is my protest to him being traded. If you get the idea that I think this trade was a good idea, you are not paying attention.

What’s wrong with this picture? Lots of things, and I don’t mean the couches color scheme. The added patches don’t belong for a few reasons, because the third jersey was introduced to the club for the 2001-2002 season. So the Stanley Cup patch doesn’t belong (even though he won the cup as backup that year), not the 2000-2001 All-Star Game patch, or the NHL 2000 patch. That’s a playoff pin near the collar, but I don’t think it will stay past one washing. The 10th anniversary patch lies in wait.

My first game at the Pepsi Center was after the trade, but I did get to see Abie play in LA and Pittsburgh. Wearing the jersey to Pepsi was fun, hearing people behind me talking about it as I walked the crowded halls. It gets me into more conversations.

Today, I was at a place (name will remain undisclosed until I have a crack at the merch) that had signed Abie jerseys for sale, at quite the discount. $70 for replica, $100 for the authentic. I don’t think I’ll get one, because what could be prettier than mine?

More jerseys to come…

Also, I need to find a better place to take photos. Cracks about the futon will be laughed at if funny, laughed at harder if not.

    In my opinion, Colorado’s 3rd jersey is the only decent 3rd jersey in the NHL. Love the color and the simplicity of the “Colorado” lettering.

    Nice couch.
