Majestic reached out a few weeks ago and offered us a jersey as part of their Majestic Jersey Day promotion since we're "one of the club's most influential fans". I'll say. Anyway they offered us a jersey and asked us what we wanted printed on the back. I had to think quick because they needed an answer right away. I told them that we'd take a Gwynn #19 jersey. That'd be siiick!
They replied that actually they'd want to put Gaslamp Ball on the back instead. "Oh okay, that's fine." It was only after I had a little time to think about it, that I wished I would have had them switch the number to 10 for our 10 year anniversary. I hope no one thinks it sacrilege to have a #19 jersey with our Twitter handle on it. I'd understand but I meant no disrespect to Tony the Gwynn.
So on Tuesday of this week I came home and saw a package on my doorstep. I'd just ordered some items on Amazon so I figured that's what was in the parcel. When I tore into the cardboard I was genuinely surprised to see a pretty sweet looking jersey.
I FaceTime'd Dex to show him and he suggested that when Majestic Jersey Day is over on May 29th that we should make this the Sisterhood of the Traveling Jersey Part 2. Not a bad idea.
So if you're so inclined tweet #JerseyDaySD to support our Padres on Twitter and Instagram.
