View Full Version : Probably been done before...but how do you feel about wearing other teams' gear?

I was curious about how people feel about this. I think some people go overboard with this and wear gear of other teams just because it looks cool. In my opinion, sports apparel shouldn't be a fashion statement. It's supposed to be a statement of allegiance.

I would consider wearing something related to the Giants or Brewers or Pirates, maybe. I would also maybe buy a t shirt or something if I visited another ballpark. (I have a PNC park t shirt that I bought last season when I saw a game there)

I've only owned two pieces of non-Chicago team gear. A Colts stocking cap I used to wear before they beat us in the Super Bowl, and a Jaromir Jagr jersey I wore in high school.

I have two Carlton Fisk Red Sox jerseys but they are tucked away. All the anti-Boston sentiment has convinced me to hide them. :dunno:

I bought a Blue Jays hat [Blue one with the red maple leaf background] while in Toronto many years ago because I thought it looked cool, although I'm pretty sure I've long since lost it.

A nice looking hat or jersey is just that, it looks cool.

My buddy collects most of the MLB team hats. I'd like to purchase a few jerseys of players I like with team color and unis that I find cool looking.

I would wear a Dodgers or Diamondbacks hat. Giants, too.

I have a few of my favorite jerseys from some of my favorite opponents... A Valenzuela Blue...a Ryan Obnoxious Orange, a Fisk Home Red, a Clemente Yellow, a Reggie Home Pinstripes, a Ricky Williams teal, a Barry Sanders blue...and a few others.

No problem.

But I'd never wear a Twins hat...or a Indians hat...or a Tigers hat...

I have a Dodger hat that I don't wear much. I also have a Diamondbacks hat that I wear fairly often (maybe 1-2 times a week).

I don't mind wearing other team's gear, so long as I wear my Sox stuff the most. :cool:

I have some gear of other teams and occasionally wear it, I'll admit.

My friend who works for the Cardinals recently got me a Cards t-shirt. I like wearing it because it aggravates the hell out of the Cub fans! :wink:

I noticed you didn't say Royals. :tongue:

And I've never been able to feel much animosity toward them, but I guess that's because they haven't ever really been good in my memory. The only time I remember being mad at that team was Opening Day [2003? 2004?] when Mendy Lopez had a walkoff against [Damaso Marte?].

I've got a powder blue Brett jersey that I love. I also actually liked the Frank White, Hal McRay, Willie Wilson, Brett, teams. I liked the rotation with Sabes, Cone, Gubs, Jackson...I liked Quiz and Howser...

Really, I have no issues with the Royals.

I wear a bunch of different hats. Padres, Blue Jays, Braves, Orioles, and Mariners. They have some cool cooperstown brands.

Main is always White Sox, but nothing wrong with going a little out of the ordinary.

The closest thing I have to non-Chicago sports gear is a grey t-shirt I bought while in Boston that says, "Yankees Suck!" Doesn't make any reference to the Sawx whatsoever, it's just a light grey t-shirt with black, block lettering.

Come to think of it, I also used to wear a Mark McGwire Cardinals shirt around the house back in the late 90s, early 00s... Not because I loved McGwire, but more to poke fun at my Cub-fan mom and brother.

I wouldn't mind wearing other teams gear, but really I only have multiple teams in soccer for the 4 major leagues and MLS (and a minor league). I also have a Colts jersey as I have lived in and around Indy for so long now. I'll be picking a Blackpool jersey soon.

I hate when it leads to the embarassing situation where you actually try to talk to the person about the team/sport they are wearing and they have no idea what you are talking about. They reply with "Oh, I'm just wearing this because it looks cool."

LOL I had that happen to me when I was only 6 or so. I had a Boston Red Sox hat and one of my Dad's friends came by and said "So, you're a Red Sox fan, eh?" and I said no, the "B" was for my first name. He looked at me a little weird. Hey, I was a kid! Sheesh...

I have a Reds hat I'll bust out on occasion. If I was forced to pick another baseball team to follow it would probably be the Reds

I feel dirty wearing another team's hat or shirt, but I did buy a Rangers throwback shirt when I went down to Arlington to see the Sox lose. When I was in Montreal, I regret not buying an Expos shirt or hat... their sports stores still had many items to chose from.

If it's MLB, I'll only wear Sox stuff. If I do go to an MLB game that the Sox aren't playing in, I'll wear Sox stuff or colors. I don't think it's wrong that other people wear whatever they want to; I just don't do it.

For the Cardinals game, I will likely where some Redbirds stuff though. I always look for opportunities to wear that. Then again, I have so much Redbirds, Sox, and Bucs stuff that my closet doesn't need stuff from another team.

Unless I lose a bet, I can't ever envision myself wearing the cap or jersey of a team that isn't my favorite team in a given sport. If it's not Sox, Hawks, Bears, Bulls or Illini then I'm not wearing it. One of my sons attends Indiana University another attends Northwestern. Even when I go visit them and attend Hoosier or Wildcat games, I'll root for them (if they aren't playing Illinois); but I still wear my Illini cap! You gotta stay true to your school (or team).

And I frequently sport D'Backs and Suns shirts. But jerseys? Only Sox--and my Payton Throwback.

I have a few Mets hats and shirts, and a Brewers Prince Fielder jersey-shirt I bought to wear at a Brewers-Twins interleague game I went to at the Dome last year (I sure wasn't going to be reppin' the Twins!).

I have a Hartford Whalers sweater. I'll wear pretty much any other teams gear so long as I don't hate said team (Cubs, Twins, Red Wings, Pistons, Raiders).

I have a Colorado Rockies hat, with my name on the back.

In college, for Halloween (during the Tigers/Cards WS), I took a Detroit jersey from one of my floormates, colored in a spot on my hand with a brown marker, and said I was Kenny Rogers.

Right now I am wearing a Tony Gwynn shirt commemorating his 3,000th hit. It was a giveaway at a Padres game in September 1999 against the Expos at Jack Murphy Stadium. Tony Gwynn is cool, though. Some of the younger fans might remember him as Stephen Strasburg's college baseball coach. Strangely enough I have eight complete White Sox uniforms, but I have no apparel celebrating any individual White Sox player. They gave away more than 55,000 of those Tony Gwynn shirts that night.

I also have acquired a Montreal Expos cap since that night in San Diego (when I pretended to be from Montreal and spoke French to my friends). It was given to me the day Rocky Biddle was traded to the Expos.

I also have a Brewers cap that was a giveaway at a Brewers game in 2000 when I was a season ticket holder for the last season at Miller Park. Before I got the Brewers cap, I wore a Sox cap to the games. I wore the Brewers cap to Brewers games thereafter, but I haven't worn it since leaving Wisconsin.

I own quite a few hats, but most are from NL teams. I have a Padres, two Brewers, Pirates, Atlanta alternate, Astros, all 5950 game day hats. It's hard to buy stuff from other AL teams because the Sox play them all, therefore, I root against them all.

I've decided any NL hat is fair game.
