Girls in Jerseys

Recently Contagion was talking about the rules of football jerseys.

One of them was this:

5. Jerseys must match the color scheme of your team. If your team does not play in color scheme of your jersey, it is not acceptable. (A lot of teams sell third color jerseys. The Green Bay Packers have Green as their primary color for home games, and white for the away. You can get a jersey where yellow is the primary color, the yellow jersey is not acceptable).

And he and I basically had the same thought – there needs to be an amendment for women. I mean hell, we give women passes all the time for stuff they do that isn’t considered “official,” but that is still attractive. And even as someone who isn’t a football nut, I have to admit that there are a lot of times that a girl in a jersey is kinda hot – and on a lot of girls a more feminine jersey like something in pink only helps the effect.

As an aside, it turns out LabGirl has gotten interested in attending football parties with me even though she’s even less of a football fan than I am – kind of for the same reasons – she digs the camaraderie even more than the game itself. And, she’s mentioned that she wants a jersey.
Now, I’ve mentioned the pink ones to her, telling her I think they’d be cute on her, but she didn’t seem too enthused about the idea. It may end up from getting her more than one, but she’ll probably end up wearing one sooner or later just because I think her jersey would look good as something in pink. Of course… I suppose if it were fully up to me it’d be in something pink, skin-tight, and shiny… but I digress…

Anyway, the rules need an official amendment. Because girls in jerseys are hot, regardless of the color.

Hours Later: Bailout Plan May Qualify for Epic Fail

Credit markets to Washington: Bailout isn’t enough

After House OKs bailout, credit markets tighten on fears the plan isn’t enough to help economy

NEW YORK (AP) — The credit markets finally got a bailout bill, but the stranglehold hasn’t let up — a troubling sign that lenders and investors believe the package will only be a baby step in the long road to economic recovery.

The credit markets, where companies go to get cash loans, have seized up since the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and in anticipation of the $700 billion plan initially voted down by the House. The House passed a revised version of it Friday following the Senate’s approval earlier this week, but anxiety about its effectiveness kept demand for Treasury bills high and nearly nonexistent for other types of debt.

After the House’s vote Friday afternoon, the yield on the three-month Treasury bill slipped to 0.50 percent from 0.70 percent late Thursday. There has been no decrease in demand for T-bills, seen as the safest assets around, even though they are offering extremely low returns. The discount rate on the three-month was 0.47 percent.

The stock market sank after the House passed the plan, sending investors back into longer-term Treasurys.


Yup – the bill got passed, and the market didn’t care – it went down anyway. But hey at least I, you, our kids, and our grandkids get the privilege of paying for absolutely nothing…
