Greg Wyshynski (of Yahoo’s Puck Daddy blog) has run a series of popular “Pass or Fail” articles, focusing on the question of whether NHL jerseys with pretty much anything other than a legitimate player name and number on the back is an offense against the hockey gods. For example, today’s refers to a Calgary Flames fan with “Crosby 87”. This morning I bring a slightly different question to the table.
Last night in a beer-league game, our squad (the Piranhas) played a team with their own jerseys (think Minnesota Wild colors with a different logo), but all of them had legendary NHL player names and numbers on the back. Somewhat confusingly, they had Ramsey at center, Roy on the wing, and a Goring on defense…
Having never seen such a thing in nearly 20 years of beer-league hockey, I’ve gotta ask the question; is this a jersey foul???
