Yay or Nay: Wearing Your Team's Gear...


Recommended Posts

For some reason, I feel like it is only douchey when you are a Red Sox or Yankees fan. I can't stand seeing people wear those team colors any where except NY or Boston.

I wore Redskins jersey (Sean Taylor) to a Ravens/Browns game. Apparently, a lot of Ravens fans think it is douchey. It took me a while to get all of the ketchup, mustard, and beer stains our of the jersey after the game.

I'm sorry, but if you don't like it when Yankees, Red Sox, or Steelers fans do it...why would you wear Orioles stuff to non-Orioles games? It seems like it's in the same vein, right?

I remember going to a Ravens/Steelers game...maybe in 2005. Maybe 2004. There was this guy who went in wearing a Lee Evans jersey. I couldn't stop laughing. It was a running joke between me and some of my friends for a while.

For what it's worth, I go to games between other teams in casual clothes...no Orioles stuff.

I don't mind it. I do wonder why people attend games in which they have no rooting interest. Especially since it's expensive.

You should come out to Oakland sometime. Free Parking Tuesdays. $2 Wednesdays. $12 value deck seats (includes $6 food voucher). Plus, you get the unique experience of watching a franchise die. Oh, and I wear my O's cap whenever I go (Only wear the hat, though, when the O's are playing, I'll go all decked out).

How do I do that when we are discussing the worst team in the AL?

What about people who discuss bad movies? Is someone saying Battlefield Earth is one of the worst movies of the last 50 years drawing negative attention to themselves or are they stating a very widely held opinion? How about bad restaurants?

You are failing to grasp this.

I don't see anything wrong with wearing your home teams gear to some random other game. Go represent. Free country.

I also like the movie Battlefield Earth. Was funny.

    • Have you seen the game threads?  We're never going to make the post season w/ those kind of fans.  We might as well just give them all pink hats.
    • I think Burnes gets 5 days rest because of the off day tomorrow so it seems like a good spot to push him a little.  He only threw 107, so its not like we went Dusty Baker on him.   I mentioned that I think Hyde has to manage our starters a little less delicately with our bullpen sucking.  It looks Hyde is inclined to agree with this.
    • Have you seen the lineups? They are a joke. Hyde has to go too.     😎 Insomnia in progress. 
    • I have to admit I am all for resigning Burnes too, I just can't remember the last time the O's signed a free agent the other top teams wanted.  I don't think even Chris Davis fits that category because the O's were bidding against themselves.  Albert Belle?  I guess I'll just try to be hopeful.  I can't see Rubenstein making himself the public face of the franchise and then turning around and basically saying this is going to be my cash cow.  I guess we'll soon find out.  I have to admit I am looking forward to this way more than the election.  lol
    • It seems to me they should probably change their approach or the season will end up a disaster.  It’s frankly unexplainable they haven’t demoted/traded/DFA’d the players that aren’t performing.  It’s a joke management thinks this group of players has any chance of winning anything.  Imagine if they could just walk more..
    • Sorry I’m not Gretzky fan , lol . And don’t know any of his quotes. But I would love to hear it , if you can share.    Speaking of bullpen, I agree that ours needs to be augmented and upgraded.  The trade deadline is coming soon so……..
    • I agree. He's a major factor in our odds to win a World Series. Gotta go for it while you can and keep him if we can. I generally don't like big contracts and view them as over pays. I criticized the Albert Belle signing, I hated the Ubaldo Jimenez signing, and I didn't feel comfortable with the Chris Davis extension. But to me those players did not have a solid consistent careers as a pure Ace player like Burnes does. Burnes is a player I feel confident that you know what you're getting, even if we can expect a decline by age 35. Up to that point, you're getting a perennial Cy Young competitor to anchor your entire Pitching Staff and give you a chance to win when you need it most just like he did tonight in the game 3 rubber match in a series against division rivals. This series against the Red Sox, Burnes was effectively the Stopper and got us back on track. I'm all for resigning Corbin Burnes! It's on my Christmas wish list!
