And so it begins!
It's been years since I started collecting jerseys. I obtained my first one upon the age of 12. It was a red and white soccer jersey from Brazil. If you are curious about it, you can probably google Sport Club Internacional. This is a team from south Brazil, a beautiful city called Porto Alegre.
Among the many soccer teams from Brazil, this one became my favorite and I believe their jersey has a lot of history. The club was founded on April 4th of 1909 and it will soon be 109 years old. Their jersey, since early days carries the vivid red symbolizing blood, effort and victory (or so I think) and white.
The first jersey ever made had symmetric red and white vertical stripes.
Since then, the club's jersey has been modified several times. The club also obtained a second set of jerseys in which the predominant color is white and it looks just as great as the set number 1.
Maybe I love this jersey because it is from my favorite soccer team. I watch every game, cheer, cry, get mad and smile. If you think these feelings come after the game you are wrong. A thousand feelings go through my heart as I watch a game and it puts me close to a heart attack whenever the adversary is approaching or whenever we are about to score. Either way, the jersey, the sport, the emotion and the passion are the most common feelings I have about the jersey and they are ingrained deep within my soul.
Today, 137 jerseys later (from all kinds of sports), I decided to post about each of them and in the order I acquired them unless they are about the same club. My second jersey was also from Inter (club nickname). My third though, was a Football jersey. I bet you were not expecting that! So my next post will be about the Giants!
I hope you all come here and enjoy reading about jerseys. Soccer is not the only sport I love (though my favorite) so I will be posting about all other sports and their jerseys as well.
Please, put your comment on the boxes below and share with me what your favorite jerseys are.
P.S. Whenever possible, I will talk about a good person or business that somehow helped or influenced me for good. I would like to talk about 2 businesses today.
Frederick Mechanic. This auto-repair person helped me this week and did not charge me anything. If you happen to be in Frederick, Maryland, U.S and need help with your vehicle, go to https://www.frederickmechanic.com/ and talk to Logan.
Also, Car Swaddle. Car Swaddle is an app you can download on your phone and request an oil change at any time and they bring the mechanic to you! Yes, I am serious. I have set appointments for myself and they came to my work and serviced the car in the parking lot. The same goes for my wife's car at home. They worked on our driveway.
