[i][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]In all my years as a Ravens' fan living in Indy, I could have never imagined a moment like I experienced this morning at work. A co-worker of mine, an Indy fan, asked me if they could borrow one of my Ravens' jerseys to sport for Super Bowl weekend.[/font][/i]

[i][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]So... should I? If so, which one?[/font][/i]

[i][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]My Ray Lewis is out of the question. My oldest will be wearing Justin Tucker. My wife will be wearing Art Modell.[/font][/i]

[i][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]And yes, I trust this person enough that I do not think they would do intentional harm to my jersey.[/i][/font][/i]

[size=1][i][font=trebuchet ms', helvetica, sans-serif][i]And no, it isn't Marshall.[/i][/font][/i][/size]

Nope. I don't let anyone ( except my GF , and that's a treat for ME) wear my jerseys... and especially not a fan of Indy. Forget that.

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Fixed that for you... and.. perhaps this fan could... put a plastic bag over their head and hair... and wear a turtleneck with long sleeves underneath it... and gloves... that way... it would never actually touch their skin.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]That and I just like the idea of an Indy fan with a plastic bag over their head. *cough, adverts eyes*[/i][/font]

If you get along with the person and work well together, there is nothing wrong with a lunch every now and then. A Ravens jersey on a Colts fan is another matter entirely....that would be he equivalent of you wearing Andrew Luck or Reggie Wayne!

He needs to be represented.
He is an amazing player and a fantastic person.

You've done enough for them.

No, but for real, a jersey of your prized team is a sacred thing. If this person is truly trustworthy, then MAYBE... but considering the history between Indy and Baltimore... I'd be inclined to say no, even if this person does have good intentions. Lots of bad blood brewing.

Personally, I'd be doubting the authenticity of said person for even WANTING to wear another teams jersey. I would NEVER wear another teams Jersey . Seems fraudulent .

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]He and I have poked and jabbed each other all season long, and when the playoffs rolled around and the Ravens had Indy in the first round -- that's when the betting began (the lunch I owed him; winner buys, crazy -- I know, but go with it).

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]...then he poked that we couldn't beat Manning & the Broncos...[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]...and then, this past week, all he said to me was, "The Ravens better beat New England, cause I'll be cheering for them."

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]So, I think he's being genuine... at least for this one time.[/i][/font]

I guess I'm a different type of fan. I wouldn't even wear a team that has no bearing on the Ravens... say, like the Cardinals.

I understand people who collect jerseys from the greats. It's like a more expensive version of playing cards. I would personally love to have a Van Brocklin, Montana, Munoz and Starr jersey! Sadly, I don't have panda money... :surrender:

For collecting, I can see. As for actually wearing it? No way. For the record, I was a 9ers fan Long before the Ravens came to be. this SB is going to be great!! : D

No team to root for... Born in 83, first player I ever met was John Taylor. Loved the 9ers ever since . However, something about the hometown team, built the way I like it, built much like the city of Baltimore. No way could I pull for anyone over my city.

I would say the Flacco jersey and is he a Colts fan? Then you could ask him how's it feel to be wearing a jersey of an ELITE Quarterback again... ;)

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]He and I had that conversation as well today... he actually said he thought Joe was elite. Echoing what many of us said last evening, "He's beat Luck, Manning and Brady in the same playoff run -- no doubt, he's elite. Who cares about the regular season when you're posting 100+ QBR three weeks in a row in the playoffs."[/i][/font]

I always thought fans should be true to their colors. So if he wants to wear a Ravens jersey let him go buy one and invest in the team like we all did.

lol...First off, I'm amazed that you have such a vast collection of Ravens jerseys!

2nd, You're a kind person to even entertain such an idea.

My advice (since you trust him) let him choose which one. Anything but the Webb Jersey as that seems to be your favorite and we don't want to introduce any bad karma at this juncture. ;)

Let him borrow one, but in the middle of the night back a truck up to his house (preferably with it snowing) and take it back and everything else he has!
