We are the Bears Shufflin' Crew...

Hey, I finally had a relatively decent eBay experience buying a jersey.

A couple weeks ago, I decided on a jersey I wanted to represent my favorite football team on Earth... the Chicago Bears. And that representative jersey would be Mike Singletary. "Samurai Mike" is da man and, shockingly, despite the love for him that Chicagoans have, you don't see that many people donning the famed #50. So I got one from some guy in South Korea, which, I'm sure, means it was mass produced in a sweatshop. But, c'est la vie.

A week ago, I got the jersey in the mail. Well, it should have been the jersey. Instead, I got an Oakland Raiders jersey for Otis Sistrunk. Wha??? I e-mailed the seller and told him of the mistake. Then, since the package actually contained the packing slip for the person who really ordered the Sistrunk jersey, I tracked her down and gave her a call.

The eBay seller told me that he had, in fact, made a mistake and would send me out a new one. In the meantime, the actual buyer of this jersey called me and told me she would like it if I sent it to her as it was intended as a gift for her husband for his birthday yesterday. So, this past Tuesday, I did just that. Although we both figured she would probably receive my jersey, she had not gotten it yet to know for sure.

On Wednesday, she called to confirm that she did get my jersey in the mail. She also said she'd put it in the mail to me on Thursday. That day, I also got an e-mail from the seller in South Korea telling me to keep the jersey he had mistakenly sent me as it would cost him too much to pay shipping to have me send it back.

And, on Thursday, I got the replacement jersey from the seller in South Korea (much quicker about this shipment than the original; he must really want a positive review on eBay).

So, in summation, I'm receiving two Mike Singletary jerseys for the price of one. How sweet is that? This almost makes up for the Mark Grace debacle last year.

Here is Mike Singletary back in the day...


And here I am doing my level best to look like Samurai Mike. However, I really look more constipated than anything...

But, hey, it's a damn nice jersey!

My dear friend, Why has our friendship failed? I feel as though our relationship was never quite given the chance it so richly deserved. Was it something I said? Was it something I did (or did not do)? I've tried...

I need to make some changes here at kapgar. Something's gotta give. Have any of you ever watched the movie Ice Age? Remember that squirrel-like character, Scrat? He spent the opening sequences of the movie scouring the frozen tundra for...

Lovely picture! :) You're a true fan!


I try to be! ;-)


I don't know... I do see a little resemblance in the eyes. It's kind of that crazy "oh, you do NOT want to mess with me" type look. I think it could work for you!


Thank you for the vote of confidence! However, after a while, you start to get one of those behind-the-eyeball headaches if you keep doing that. Dunno how Samurai Mike kept it up all those years.


Constipated!!! LMAO!!!!! hahahaha


Thank you so much for your support during these rectally difficult days.
