There is a promotion right now at Citizens Bank Park where, if you buy a replica jersey, you get two free tickets to certain games. It isn't quite "tickets in packs of hot dogs yet" but it is getting there. I've wanted a replica jersey for a while, and the free seats include the area where I normally sit, so this deal makes sense for me.
I am thinking about getting one that is customized rather than preprinted with a name. My name and a favorite number? No. That's not my way. I have considered lots and lots of "names". I have thought of lots of "not names" ideas. None feels right yet. For $100.00, I want to get this right.
I need your help. Egg me on to poor behavior, TGP readers. Crowdsource me a perfectly horrifying replica jersey. I have to be able to get it printed, for one thing. "FIREAMARO" probably will not work.
You are encouraged to suggest many uniform configurations. Based on recs and my own personal preferences, I will select five of yours and three of mine, and there will be a second post in a week or so where the TGP community will select my customized jersey "name" by voting for it in an on-line poll. Being a jersey, a number is required, too. Don't forget that part.
The gentleman at the stadium (main concourse, sort of along the first base side, just past home plate -- that store) said that I can have 12 characters normally, though he has fit 18. Also, only some MLB player names are licensed, so I may have obstacles for some of the more esoteric players, but if I tell him it is my name, he wouldn't object.
Here are some of my ideas so far:
- AMARO - 33
- URBINA - 74
- SINGLETON - 28
- TARTABULL - 45
- JELTZ - 30
- GLENNBO - 12
- DREW - 7 (J.D. Drew wore #7 and #8 for St. Louis -- this also appeals to me)
Weird (I'm not sure what to for numbers for some of these):
- REPLACEMENT - ?
- FELONYFRAUD - ?
- SABRNERD - ?
- TARGARYEN - ?
- NECROPHILLIE - ?
- GOLDWATER - 64
