By plunge, I mean - get a personalized Mets jersey.
Before I have to attend the gasps of shock you might have, just listen for a minute. I had one once upon a blue moon. In the late 80s. My favorite player: Jefferies #9. Yup. I admit it. Although I do have to say, it was mostly because he was cute with a great smile.
But this time around, I am little conscious of what I spend and with the mercenaries in sports, I was hesitant to get a jersey made for someone who may or may not be on the team.
I also have famously said to many that - IF Oliver Perez gets an extension, I will spend $$ on his personalized jersey. But then again, we had an awkward break up last year, and I wonder if it's worth getting a jersey for someone who is on the team for three years, tops.
I also LOVE the black home jersey...but the Mets purist in me says...I should get the white with blue stripes "classic" and be done with it.
But I have also a favorite position player. It's Jose Reyes, #7 for those of you keeping track at home, and also the purist in me says I shouldn't waste my dollars on a pitcher...although I do have a huge fan-boy crush on Oh Pea.
So look to the right column - and vote! Thanks for your support on this My Summer Family very important moment...
