Dodgers Won’t Sell ‘Chapter 11′ Jerseys
We’ve all seen people wearing those personalized jerseys that are available for purchase from each major league team. You know, someone slips his own last name and favorite number on, say, a Rangers jersey, and then large groups of people mock him? Yeah, you know what I mean.
Well, apparently some Dodgers fans tried to customize jerseys with the name “Chapter” and the number “11,” in light of the bankrputcy filing. It’s pretty hilarious if you ask me. Unfortunately, the Dodgers didn’t seem to find the humor in it. If you go to MLB.com and try to purchase a “Chapter 11″ jersey, you’ll get this message:
Your current entry cannot be processed. Language deemed inappropriate, derogatory, or profane will not be accepted. Please create a new entry.
BustedCoverage.com points out that “Chaptur 11″ still makes it through the system, if you wish to push through.
While the idea is both clever and funny, I’m not sure I’d want to spend $100 on it. Then again, I’m not a Dodgers fan. Maybe they’re so disgruntled with the situation that it’s worth the C-note.
