ROFL! At least they are going to church.

That would be considered the height of tackiness and totally inappropriate to a Southerner.

Plus, anyone who is THAT BIG INTO ANY SPORT needs to get a life. Really.

Collegiate sports are the thing to Southerners. Sadly, I have noticed that here in Charlotte, it has become common to see folks walking around with pro sports insignia-laden clothing and I find that so tacky. That stuff should be on children on playgrounds or on adults in stadiums or while mowing the lawn. Other than that . . . sports insignia clothing has been hijacked by gangs and there is no way I would want my kids or hubby walking around w/ the same get up that the thugs are wearing.

Well if you see some kid decked out in LA Kings black, I would agree... Pretty hard to envision a banger in a beautiful powder blue UNC shirt/cap or a #18 M&M shirt thuggin' it up around town.

I believe that LE knows which sports/teams to look out for... although this is a form of profiling that we may not like, it's hard to ignore the obvious sometimes.

HEE HEE - you always bring me back down to earth, Mikey.

Yeah, I love Carolina Blue. But the way to signal to the world that you are a Carolina grad (or support the Tarheels) is just to wear the colors, not actually wear the jerseys, lol. Okay - I will concede on a HAT.

BUT NOT TO CHURCH!!!!
