Ref You Suck, the Jersey

Posted December 30, 2011

I can't believe I wrote this whole post and failed to mention this guy's hair. Anonymous guy with Ref You Suck jersey? I love your red mohawk. I hope you still have it. (Photo by Nicole Weissman)

I snapped this shot some time ago, but it’s never too late to pay homage to a guy with such a succinct message. This jersey says “Nothing is ever the fault of my team, or any players thereof.” I like the confidence there. This guy is out for blood.

The only thing that gives me pause is that I wonder what the actual odds are of the target seeing the jersey. Of all parties – fans, players, coaches, members of the press, Verizon Center staff – actual refs may be the least likely of all parties to see this jersey.

Still, here’s to you, mascot of boo-birds everywhere.
