Perhaps it’s because I’m old(ish), never really played basketball, and lack enthusiasm in general, but I’ve never figured out the jersey-popping thing. Yes, we know you play for the Celtics. Yes, we’re also quite excited about the way you stole the ball in the closing seconds on Friday to seal the win against your former team. And yes, again, we know you play for the Celtics.
Still, though, those jerseys are stretchy, almost impressively so. I tried that with my T-shirt (American Apparel 50/50) after we got the newspaper in on time last night. It was disappointingly lacking the snap-back I’m sure Garnett got with his performance-engineered fabric. It was a real sad scene all around … (sigh).
