What in the name of Rob Lowe do we have here to usher in another glorious NFL season? I know Portnoy isn't going to be happy if he finds out I am blogging about the the merch of his arch-nemesis (no chance he does). But when that rat fuck Goodell is pumping out clothes hotter than anything Katniss and Peeta wore heading into the Hunger Games, it simply has to be on the blog.
Sick reference, Clem!
Usually I avoid buying sports gear that references a specific day since the appeal of Opening Day 2012 or the 2015 All-Star Game falls off a cliff roughly 24 hours after that day occurs. But I am buying one of each of these fashion masterpieces in the biggest size the NFL Store makes because that's just how big of a football fan. Did you know "Shape Of You" was written about the first time Ed Sheeran saw an oblong pigskin in person? Me either! But it sounds like it could be true because when you think football, you think of the crisp in the air, eating wings or chili, and this guy.
You can pretty much hear the booming voice of John Facenda narrating an old Raiders game from the 70s as The Autumn Wind plays in the background as that gif plays. If an Ed Sheeran song comes on at the bar, the first thing you think about is the person you are dating. Or the ex that got away. Or the one that never became an ex because you were too busy rooting on your NFL team, managing your home fantasy team, and responsibly placing bets on the Barstool Sportsbook (now available in Arizona!).
But somewhere on the list of things you think of when Ed Sheeran comes on is NFL football. It may be somewhere in the 300,000s, but it's definitely on there and it will only move up the list since this will be the scene of everyone at the bar when you roll in for 1 PM kickoff wearing a SHEERAN 2021 NFL KICKOFF jacket.
P.S. If this all was the work of the ANUS boys somehow infiltrating the NFL, I just want them to know that I know and I didn't fall for their prank.
