Jersey Monday: David Wright
So, I'm back with Jersey Monday, now that I've finally taken pictures of the last few jerseys I purchased. I got this David Wright Mets jersey at a game last August, as part of a buy-one-get-one-free sale at the Mets team store (yeah, they were kind of desperate to move merchandise). I picked Wright over Jose Reyes, because I figured there was a better chance Wright would be back for 2012, and I was right (pun fully intended... I'm sorry).
While Wright is still on the team, this jersey is already out of date, because the Mets finally ditched the black drop shadow from their jerseys. Personally, I never had a huge problem with the drop shadow; I was more against the black alternate jersey in general, and sadly those are still around.
Spring training is starting soon -- pitchers and catchers are already reporting -- and it's supposed to represent a time of hope. Well, I'm personally not too hopeful about the Mets season, but I am looking forward to going to more games in 2012 than I did in 2011.
Jersey Monday will continue every Monday until I run out of jerseys to spotlight. And since I’ve got more than 190 of them, that could be awhile.
