Rick Reilly of ESPN.com on adults wearing jerseys:

Wearing a jersey used to be for kids. You be Tom Brady and I’ll be Darrelle Revis. Now people with actual jobs are wearing them. At 6, it’s adorable. At 36, deplorable.

I have been against adults wearing jerseys for a while now, and have long had arguments with my friends about it. Reilly has an interesting piece on it where he comes up with some rules, most of which I agree with. One of their defenses is that so many people do it, it must be OK. Can’t say I agree. To me, it’s like wearing a Superman costume to a movie theater to see a Superman movie.
