100 Days of Writing – Day Fifty-Two

Jersey swap,,,a college jersey and neat story.

I recently purchased a Lenoir-Rhyne University baseball jersey, one that was actually worn by a Bear baseball player. When attending the opening game of the football season with my wife, I decided to wear the jersey to support the home team.

While I was waiting in line for some pre-game concessions, a man comes up to me and remarked about how nice my jersey is. He then proposes that he would swap a jersey he had of the same design, but a different number. At first I thought he was kidding, but then it became apparent he truly wanted the jersey I had. He shared that when he played football for the university, #37 was the number that he wore. And 37 was the number on the jersey I had.

We arranged to meet during the coming week and he and I swapped jerseys. He now has the #37 jersey that means so much to him and I have #35, which I’m sure has a story to tell as well.

I like it when we have chance meetings with others. I have no doubt that I was supposed to buy that #37 Bears baseball jersey. I have no doubts that I was supposed to be wearing it that particular day and ran into Isaiah Whitaker. We’re now FB friends and have a jersey swap story to share for years to come.
