“Just trying to support the team.”
That’s what I said when I was called out for looking … ummm … straight up terrible. I mentioned earlier this week, that I needed to pick up a Vipers jersey so I could really show my support for the team on game days. Jen showed up to work this morning wearing a jersey and asked if I had picked one up – but I hadn’t. She responded with something like “Well, you’re going to look pretty stupid in this photo then. You might as well be wearing a Vees jersey.”
I had the “bright idea” of printing the team logo and taping it to my sweater. Admittedly, it was terrible, but I’m no Vees fan and certainly didn’t want to be seen as one.
Co-workers began to show up and shake their heads at me, but remember, I’m just trying to support the team here (and none of them was wearing a jersey.)
Enter Duncan Wray – jersey in hand – who heard all hubbub about my sweater and wanted to help – with a game worn Michael Ufberg jersey. Ufberg was just named to the BCHL’s all rookie team – you can read that story here.
Thank you so much Duncan! GO VIPERS GO!
