Some personalized Caps jerseys aren’t family friendly, or at least require explanation for kids. But upon seeing a 00 jersey with the nameplate ‘Thing Dad’ I had to ask – what’s that about?

The father, Van Sage, has two daughters, who he refers to as Thing One and Thing Two (you know, a Cat in the Hat reference). The numbers on their jerseys – 00 and 03 – refer to the year they were born. Thing Dad gets 00 for the year he became a father.

Good, clean family fun with jerseys. (See more Caps Outsider jersey posts)
