School sports rivalries can sometimes bring out the very worse in people. Louisville G Russ Smith is having some drama with Federal Express’ Memphis branch. The shipping giant has apparent misplaced Smith’s 2013 NCAA championship jersey. FedEx is claiming that the jersey was somehow thrown away, but the details of the story seem a little more odd than just that. FedEx delivered Smith’s jersey to him in a broken glass frame, so the company requested that Smith return the frame with the jersey still inside when a claim was filed. A FedEx representative then called Smith a few days later to explain that the jersey had been thrown away. Why on earth anyone at the shipping company with throw away a customer’s package is beyond explanation, but that’s the story that FedEx is sticking to. Smith retaliated by tweeting FedEx. @FedEx you are incredible. I am getting on a flight from Vegas to Louisville to graduate tomorrow & you guys have ruined that for me. — Russ Smith (@Russdiculous_2) May 10, 2014 @FedEx There will be plenty of problems if I don’t have my jersey. Same stains, same rips, same odor, same everything. Can’t duplicate that. — Russ Smith (@Russdiculous_2) May 10, 2014 A member of the Louisville Board of Trustees is attempting to place a reward for the return of the jersey, but I seriously doubt that culprit will come forward. I am offering immediate, no questions asked $3000 reward to person who returns Russ Smith’s nat’l champ jersey to my office @Russdiculous_2 — Jonathan Blue (@1CardsFan) May 10, 2014 There hasn’t been any comment from FedEx on the situation.
