Almost second round. Just waiting for the east to finish up. My fantasy bracket is no longer perfect!

Now that I’ve shown you what a real jersey is supposed to look like, let’s take a look at a counterfeit jersey. These pictures were pulled from an actual ebay auction, purporting to be selling an authentic, new Patrick Kane jersey for $75.
Right off the bat, you should know this is counterfeit, because the Blackhawks haven’t produced their black jerseys in a number of years. But let’s pretend that this person is selling this a number of years after procuring it.
So how can you tell it’s fake? The dead giveaway, before even looking at anything else, is the Tomahawk C. If you see a jersey with skinny Tomahawk C patches on the shoulders, it’s a fake.
The Indianhead logo is terrible, even for a fake jersey. The poor thing looks jaundiced. Also, I’m not exactly sure what’s going on with it — is it a patch that’s sewn on? I can’t tell.
Next, take a look at the overall craftsmanship of the jersey. It looks puffy, doesn’t it? The seams are puckered, and it’s just not put together very well. The stripes on the sleeves and along the bottom look especially heinous.
The “Kane” lettering just looks wrong. If the letters look too fat or too skinny, it’s a fake. Also, “Kane” is not quite centered. Faaaaake!
The 88s on the sleeves and the back just look awful. Again, they’re puckered and puffy-looking. Clear signs of counterfeiting.
Yes, there’s a fight strap, but even that’s wrong. It’s too short to be strapped down to anything, for one. Just because the jersey has a fight strap, it doesn’t make it real. Remember that.
the obsession with “real” jerseys and “pointing out fakes” exhausts me. It’s like if you didn’t spend $200 on a piece of clothing you only wear to games/during games, you’re not a real fan.
HOW DARE YOU NOT HAVE THE KIND OF DISPOSABLE INCOME I HAVE! I WILL PUBLICLY SHAME YOU!!!!
Cool, awesome. You sure showed that person.
I mean are you really gonna go up to someone at the game and say “Uh you’re jersey is a fake!” probably not. You’re not gonna take that risk and possibly get slapped in the face (believe me I’m feisty, I totally would). Do ya’ll have nothing better to do with you’re lives. What makes you so much better spending your $125+ on a “real” jersey? That you have money? Oh okay. I have money too, I have a job. I work full time. But I have better things to spend $125 on like BILLS. Yes I do own a “real” jersey and a “fake” one. What’s the problem? I’m still spending money on the Blackhawks trying to represent my favorite team.
Get a life.
Was cleaning out the stuff I transferred from my old car to the cruze. Look what I found. My white baby. “Man-child”
