    Anybody else read this and start wishing they had held onto that sweet Hornets Starter Jacket from 3rd grade?

    Re: Starter Jackets

    It was exceptional to be a sports-obsessed child of the '90s (ages 3 to 13) for 10 main reasons:

    • Classic! How is space jam over the TV show Hang Time?

    And I rocked a Phili Eagles Starter Jacket.

    I really hope he follows this up with the definitive breakdown that ends the ongoing Greg Goldberg vs. Julie "The Cat" Gaffney debate.

    Re: Starter Jackets

    We were just talking about Starter jackets last weekend. Every person over the age 25 had one when they were a kid. Every person under the age of 25 had no idea what it was.

    Re: Starter Jackets

    I'm under the age of 25 and had a Seattle Supersonics starter jacket, the rest of my siblings had the Charlotte Hornets starter jackets. I guess I was a fan of Shawn Kemp. Although I did have a Bogues jersey!

    Yeah, I finally relented and sent mine to Goodwill last Spring. Sad day.

    I also had a Supersonics starter jacket. I liked Jordan and the Bulls the most, but so many people already had Bulls jackets I had to go a different direction.

    I also had the premiere collection of red Michael Jordan t-shirts in elementary.

    I never got rid of my Starter jackets...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Re: Starter Jackets

    I had the Orlando Magic Starter jacket. I think that coat was $150 back then, wasn't it? That's crazy!

    I had a New York Rangers and a Chicago Bulls starter jacket. Also, I love the Rock 'N Jock Basketball reference.

    I would add in the peak of baseball card collecting and Becketts.

    Re: Starter Jackets

    Pretty sure I had a Cowboys one, and a Michigan Wolverines one at one time. You weren't nothin if you didn't have a Starter jacket.
