How to Disgrace a Hall of Fame Jersey

Ron Santo Marks Cubs Jersey

Here’s a great idea. How about I buy the jersey of a Chicago Cubs Hall of Famer (Ron Santo) and to be cooler than Stuart Scott I go ahead and change the name on the back of the jersey to “Marks”. AWESOME!!!!! That must have been the thought process of this Cubs fans who decided that it just wasn’t good enough to be walking around with an authentic Ron Santo jersey. He needed more. I’m not a fan of personalized jersey but if that’s your thing so be it. If you are going to do it then choose some random number that no player who actually matters wears and definitely not a Hall of Famer. It just makes you look like a douche. The other option is to just choose #69, put something like “Blackout” on the back, and be “that guy”.
