    Just ordered my dad a custom jersey.

    When my dad turned 60, we had a surprise party for him at the Washington Nationals game. I gave him a custom jersey with our last name and number 60.

    Back in April, he turned 70. We had to do a social distance safe picnic with pizza from baddpizza (new pizza joint in VA owned by people from Buffalo and serving Buffalo style pizza and wings*). Iíve been trying to order him a Bills 70 jersey since before the COVID lockdown but theyíve been out of his size. I was finally able to place the order today. Canít wait to get it.


    *= yes, the pizza is different in WNY and the wings are generally a **** show outside of WNY

    Sestak's old number one of the Bills greatest all-time players and belongs in the HOF.

    It's easy to grin When your ship
    comes in And you've got the stockmarket beat. But the man worthwhile, Is the man who can smile, When his shorts are too tight in the seat.

    Btw, it’ll be the first football jersey he’s ever owned. So I’m sure he’ll enjoy it.

    Why would you give him a John Fina jersey? I mean I know Fina was better than a lot of the flotsam that came after him, but he was at best mediocre. Seriously though, many happy returns to your dad and I hope he has many more years of health and that you are able to give him a birthday he won't soon forget.
    Personal Attacks on me, Attempts to enflame Me, and efforts to start escalation will no longer be tolerated by me and I will do my damndest not to encite you. IF you choose to follow your old troubled MO of trying to provoke me, bait me, troll me, and attack me, I am not going to respond to you. I will report you very quickly and have you very quickly dealt with by the mods because yes, the TOS apply to me and they do apply to you whether you like it or not. If you are confused about what the TOS are, click the link at the end of my signature. Familiarize yourself with it because I am done with you and you will learn very quickly that nobody is going to play the games that almost got the Spinzone permanently shuttered. So play your old games if you dare, but you and the accounts will be banned and I will go on being me.

    Is the birthday boy as optimistic as his beloved son?

    The prices have gone insane with the US/CAN $ exchange rate, shipping and duties these days.

    Ordered a Bobby Wagner womens knockoff from China for my wife who's a Seahawks fan now that I know Wagner has signed a 3 year extension.

    I stopped buying current players after a really awful streak: Bledsoe, McGahee, Spikes (2x cuz one was autographed), Lee Evans. I only go with the classic players now. I have a replica Kelly jersey and for Christmas my wife gave me an authentic Bruce jersey to replace the replica i got in 1992 that's falling apart.

    Yeah I have stopped with the names long ago but not many options for women on those Chinese sites.

    Let's see what the quality is like when it arrives in a month or two.

    I saw my dad for Father’s Day today and gave him the jersey. It was a big hit.

    God bless. Father has been gone 25 years and I think of him all the time.
