I love throwback jerseys. Over the years, I've had Largent, Krieg, Kennedy and Easley old school jerseys (unfortunately my fat ass grew out of the Largent, Kennedy and Krieg jerseys), and I'd love to get more (a Cortez #99 jersey would be sweet).
Also, back in '87, my 12-year-old noggin sported the "Boz" cut. I had that The Land of Boz poster on my wall, and I had a Bosworth #44 Seahawks jersey. I even bought the dude's book. I was hard core, y'all.
However, the day you see me wearing the Bosworth throwback they are pushing online right now is also the day you know I've had a full frontal lobotomy.
If you are a Seahawks fan, why would you buy this? This guy was one of the biggest busts in NFL history, particularly in relation to the amount of hype that surrounded his arrival in the NFL. He played in a grand total of 24 NFL games, and accumulated only four more career sacks than you or I have. Yes, it's worth noting that he had a promising rookie season in '87, but you can say the same about Rick Mirer in '93. I don't see anyone clamoring to shell out $125 for HIS jersey, do you?
I mean, this guy shouldn't represent a positive memory for Seahawks fans. I associate him with failure and disappointment in my mind (and with getting pancaked by Bo Jackson on MNF). He's Owen Gill. He's Dan McGwire. He's Kelly Stouffer and Lamar King... and so on.
I'm guessing there must be demand for Boz jerseys among ignorant douchebag buffoons that I don't know about? What do y'all think?
