I think anyone over the age of 25 should never be caught wearing a Brian Urlacher jersey … except for Brian Urlacher, of course.
That goes for Lance Brigg, Jay Cutler or Brad Maynard jerseys, too.
It’s time to face the facts: You look kind of like a dork when you’re of a certain age and you’re wearing a big football jersey.
You’re not on the team. You may say “we” when you’re referring to how the Bears did in the draft. But that doesn’t make you a teammate of Urlacher’s.
Maybe this is just me, though. I’ve always been annoyed by some of the odd clothing choices that men make after hitting 25. I’ve seen them in public in sweat pants. No. This is not good.
I’ve ever seen grown men wearing shirts with Mickey Mouse or the Tasmanian Devil on them. C’mon! Mickey Mouse is a hack, for one thing. If you were cool, you’d be a fan of Bugs Bunny. And secondly, what’s a grown man doing wearing any cartoon character on his chest.
I know it’s only the beginning of summer. I know the football season is still a ways off. But a warning can never come too early. If you’re an adult male, don’t pick up that Olen Kreutz jersey. No, it doesn’t look good on you.
