As we head into football season it is time to take inventory of your team support wardrobe. I, for one, favor a polo instead of a t-shirt. It's not that I'm sophisticated, but time has somewhat ravaged the Adonis body I had in youth to what now in a t-shirt looks like the original Michelin Man. I know team colored bib overalls are always popular but do the clothiers think most fans are 7 foot tall. At my peak I was right at 6 foot but for some reason could not get my legs any longer than 29 inches, I actually turned down work with a sideshow. Even after losing 45 pounds in what appears to be all the wrong places a t-shirt does not hang well and who would have thought hair could weigh that much? The best answer for me is the ever faithful ball cap. i can wear it backwards, forward and at a jaunty angle knowing it looks good although some have asked me if I could add a veil. No matter who your team is wear your colors proudly and may I suggest in some cases you bring a generic change in case things don't go well. As I've always said," If you can't beat them on the field there's always the parking lot!" I wonder why I've never gotten the fan "Sportsmanship" Award? GO TEAM!
