I will be upfront and honest with you from the beginning. I have clothing and hats for other college and universities in my closet. I have stuff from WKU, my alma mater. I have EKU, Centre, Texas A&M, Harvard, and Florida College attire as well. I’ll be honest: I AM NOT ASHAMED BY THIS. And here is the simple reason:
IT IS A FREAKIN’ SHIRT!!!!!
It bothers me a little when people throw a fit over fans wearing the gear of other teams because it shows the most negative side of the fanbase. It shows people who are too tightly wound and too consumed in a sport and a team. There are a couple people I know who will own nothing that has the color red in it. There are people who actually hold grudges against those who might wear a red tie with their suit. And we’ve all heard the stories of car vandalism if you have the wrong bumper sticker. It’s absurd if you ask me.
But, I am a reasonable person. If you can convince me why I shouldn’t wear any other clothes besides UK attire, I am willing to hear it. Of course, I am not including that 1 UL shirt which I use to wipe sweat off my pits after a long run. So here are the questions I have for you:
1. Can you wear the gear of another college team?
2. If so, what are the limits to what teams you can wear? Is only UL stuff out? How about all other SEC teams?
3. Would you ever hold it against a friend if they wore UL gear? Friendship over?
