We’ve seen some pretty egregious jersey fouls lately (see: the RGIII O’s jersey, see also: the Tebow O’s jersey), but this is the foulest. It’s a Cal Ripken Nats jersey (via John Collings), which is like a Ryan Zimmerman O’s jersey, except 2,632 times worse.
Ripken is basically Mr. Oriole. He’s one of the greatest of all time, and he played every game of his illustrious career for Baltimore, of course. Washington is also Baltimore’s rival, if it has one, and D.C. even has its own team now!
In any event, this does not compute. You either wear a Ripken O’s jersey or you wear another guy’s Nats jersey. Or, better yet, you don’t wear a jersey at all and opt for a shirsey. It’s cheaper/less ridiculous.
You do not under any circumstance customize a Ripken Nats jersey. But if you must, don’t wear it out in public, especially to Nats Park, and especially not with mandals.
