I think my son's closet may be cursed. It started years ago when I purchased a J.T. Snow jersey for him. You see...that year the Giants were in the playoffs vs. the Marlins. Snow was on base and had a chance to tie the score and send the Series back to San Francisco. Instead, he was thrown out at the plate. Due to this unfortunate play, the Giants went home and Marlins played on. Incidentally, this led to the Dolphins missing an important field goal from a dirt infield. But that's another story.
It doesn't stop there. His next jersey, one that he bought himself, was Antawn Jamison (he's a big Warriors fan). Jameson was promptly traded away. There are other examples I could list, but suffice to say, jerseys that go into that closet never turn out well for the player.
Last year's jersey purchase was for the Dolphins game we attended in Denver. The mojo took a little longer but still found Matt Roth on the "physically unable to perform" list.
This year I bought my son a jersey for our trip to San Diego, mind you, this was not a cheap replica but the real thing. You can probably guess by now whose jersey he wore yesterday afternoon at Qualcomm Stadium. Yes, that's right. He proudly wore #10.
