What an embarassing jerseyfiltersweep
Jul 14, 2003 1:59 PM
It is the sort of thing a redneck NASCAR fan pickup driver would wear, except they already hate cycling... (all apologies to all redneck NASCAR fan pickup drivers reading today).

The jersey would give an instant fred factor to anyone - especially with that gawdy yellow (the "tour de nashbar" automatically removes any poseurish pretensions).

How many do you suppose they actually sell?
None, I hope....wongsifu_mk

...but that's being unrealistic. Good point about the 'NASCAR-pickup-crowd' hating cycling. Assuming that to be true, isn't that like marketing air conditioners to people in Northern Alaska? Wierd.

No doubt...-JC-

...not the French. A jersey with a small factual message of U.S. patriotism - USPS earned it -what's the big deal?

Dominating other countries constitutes patriotism. What's this say?
And yet another...Crankist

It says support for and acknowledgement of USPS efforts. Ever heard of Columbia (for ex.) descibed as dominating the world of soccer? I think it comes down to this: not everyone shares a need for PC touchy-feely hyper-sensitive world views. I don't much like the aesthetics of the shirt,
but I'm comfortable with the message. Do tell - what does that say about me doc?
all I can think is "bad karma" nmDougSloan
