Found February 26, 2013 on Bacon Sports:
Random athletes are awesome because there’s so many of them and they rarely get talked about. It doesn’t take much knowledge to be able to talk about Kobe Bryant but there’s something fantastic about hearing someone drop a John Vander Wal reference. The reason is because it takes actual sports knowledge to know who that is and for the sports degenerate like me I find it hilarious. At our Rock a Jersey party on Saturday we asked everyone to write down the name of a random athlete on their name tag. We gave no other instructions and said be as creative as you’d like. Below are the random athletes names that some of the people came up with. If you want to see the awesome jerseys that people rocked at the party then click here. Which name tag did you like the best? What random athlete would you put on your name tag? Holla at us in the comments. The post Random athletes names from our Rock a Jersey party (30 pictures) appeared first on Bacon Sports.
