Christmas came nearly three months late this year, but I'm not complaining! The Ghostbusters hockey jersey my wife ordered for me finally arrived in the mail today.
I saw a jersey like this (not quite the same) in the dealers' room back in '09 at the Montreal Worldcon and it was one of my regrets that I passed it up. I'd mentioned it in passing and that wonderful woman remembered. In the lead-up to Christmas this past year, she hit the net and track
ed down a guy back east who does custom batches of geek-inspired jerseys.
There were some pretty cool "team" outfits up for grabs on his site. I was especially impressed with his The Last Starfighter-inspired jersey, and the one for the Stark Direwolves was so good I almost - almost - wavered in my desire for Ghostbusters. In the end, I stood firm, but winter will be coming again soon enough, and I may just have to
add a Direwolf jersey, with "Snow" listed as the player, next year.
Bonus points for my wife: she ordered a TARDIS jersey for herself. Hasn't arrived yet though. Will post when it comes in.
Admittedly, you won't be seeing me sporting this thing on the ice. Unlike most Canadians, I can't skate to save my life. That said, I think it'll do well enough at cons over the next few years.
For those who are interested, I don't have the guy's site address close at hand, but when my wife digs it out of her files, I'll be sure to post the link.
