There Goes My Birthday Present

According to Darren Rovell, Ookie has gone the way of Ron Mexico as far as personalized jerseys are concerned. Like they did with Ron Mexico requests, the NFL is not allowing people to personalize their blank Falcons #7 jersey with Ookie. All those who wanted to be hip and ironic or just an asshole will now have to find new avenues to mock the former anointed one. So if you are going to get that personalized jersey it looks like you're just going to have to stick with your own last name and prepared for the inevitable incidents of mockery such as: "(Insert team starting QB) sucks! They should put in Levenbaum!" or "Everybody look, Levenbaum is standing right there, lets get his autograph."

Apologies to reader Ziggy Schaffer who in middle school put his last name on the back of every jersey he owned.

Also apologies to our friend J-Mac (not the autistic ball hog) who bought his own $200 authentic Rangers Jersey and wore it everyday to class.

JMac's girlfriend told him that he gets a free pass if he bangs either Richter or Messier, but if he hooks up with any other dudes she will break up with him. I don't know how he has held out that long
