The Sisterhood of the Traveling Jersey

The Padres announced today that the 2012 FanFest will be held on February 11th.

Here's an idea:

We'll go to the Padres garage sale at FanFest and buy a cheap, used Spring Training jersey from a player that we've never heard of. Then we'll take turns wearing the jersey for an entire week.

Throughout the Spring and Summer of 2012 the jersey will be mailed around the country (or the world!) and a different Gaslamp Baller will wear the unwashed jersey. Somehow it'll magically fit each of us.

When you get the jersey you'll write a FanPost journal entry chronicling all of the wonderful things that happened to you while you wore it. It'll be a way for us to keep in touch and become closer as a community.

It'll be just like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants book and movie series. You'll write about how you experienced your first tongue kiss, went to fat camp or spent time in jail for disorderly conduct. At the end of the week you'll mail it to the next participant.

Then eventually one of you will just keep the jersey and totally eff the whole thing up and we'll all hate you.
