'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a last minute shopper looking for a great gift idea for a loved one.'
My wife would be the first to tell you that I am the easiest person in the world to shop for. She can essentially buy anything with a star on it and she knows I’m going to be happy. Of course, nothing says “I love you” more than a nice new Cowboys jersey to add to the collection.
I’m a little leery when it comes to jerseys. I own a Marion Barber jersey that I got to wear for exactly one season. We’ve all been burned before by jumping the gun and buying a jersey of a player that burst onto the scene only to see him flame out or leave town shortly thereafter. I saw an increase in DeMarco Murray jerseys walking around the mall that season he ran for over 1,800 yards. It’s too bad those people didn’t realize he was in a contract year.
The last jersey I bought was Ezekiel Elliott last year. It is uncharacteristic of me to buy a player’s jersey before he steps on the field, but after all the research I put into watching him in college, I bought into the Zeke hype right away. With Christmas upon us, many of us will be adding a new jersey to our collection. Or maybe you recently bought one for someone as a gift? I took to twitter to check out what jersey other fans are interested in right now.
Nothing brings my daughter more Christmas cheer than a jersey of future Hall of Famer, @JasonWitten— Dan Rogers (@DannyPhantom24) December 23, 2017
What @dallascowboys jersey right now would make the best Christmas present? #ChristmasJersey pic.twitter.com/FismfdNlAg
Which player right now would be the jersey you would want to own? Are you going with a proven All-Pro that you know will be on the team for a long time? Or are you taking a chance on a fresh new player so you stay ahead of the pack before everyone and their brother has one?
How about some love for the men doing the dirty work in the trenches?
Or maybe you want to get on board the Jaylon Smith train before he reaches that superstar level of play?
Or maybe you want to go old school?
How about you? What jersey is next on your wish list?
