Ok. So my mom basically gave me cash for Christmas. Not cuz she isn't thoughtful, but because I had no idea what I wanted. So I've now decided I'm going to get a White Sox jersey. My problem is this...I don't know who's. I'm afraid actually. I kind of have this curse with baseball jerseys and stuff. Whenever I get one of my favorite player's jersey they are inevitably shipped off unexpectedly. (Take for instance this season when I got myself an Aaron Rowand 33 Tshirt jersey. He now will be playing centerfield for the Phillies.)
So I'm scared. So I thought I would just get one with Fornelli on the back, but there are problems there too. See the numbers I would want would be either 3 for my birthday, but that's Harold Baines' number, and it's retired. Then I go with 13 which was my number all throughout Little League, but it's also Ozzie Guillen's number. My final one would be 56 as just my favorite football number (Whenever I create myself in Madden I am ALWAYS Tom Fornelli Middle Linebacker #56) but Buehrle has it.
What is a Sox fan to do!? I was thinking I could go with an all time great, but the jerseys have a World Series patch on them. So it doesn't make much sense to get Carlton Fisk-72, or Robin Ventura-23 when neither were on the World Series team.
I've kind of narrowed it down to a few choices. They are Buehrle-56, Konerko-14, Crede-24 or Pierszynski-12. What do you do knowing the history surrounding me and these things?
Help me help myself.
