Cougar catnip: Wearing sports jerseys and dignity are mutually exclusive


Alejandro Hernandez

I often see people, especially men, wearing the sports jerseys of professional athletes. It’s laughably self-deprecating. It’s the equivalent of saying, “look at how cool this other man is!” Wearing sports jerseys with someone else’s name on it is something no self-respecting person should engage in. There’s no dignity or glory in the idolatry of professional athletes. I understand wearing them if it has your name on it. However, this usually isn’t the case. There are an infinite amount of options for clothing, and sports jerseys don’t have to be a part of anyone’s wardrobe.
