The concept of jersey burning has become such a common practice in sports that it has lost any originality it once had. Fans now burn jerseys when a player switches teams or chokes in a big game. They burn jerseys to forget the past or to express displeasure with a draft pick. However, there can still be a first time for everything — even when it comes to setting jerseys on fire.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think there has ever been a video of an angry fan teaching his extremely young son how to light a player’s jersey on fire. That’s why we have Cowboys fans. Check out this video of a cowboys fan teaching his son how to burn a Tony Romo jersey, courtesy of Los That Sports Blog via Black Sports Online:
That is messed up. No, not how annoying the kid’s laugh is. I’m talking about the fact that his old man is teaching him how to play with matches and lighter fluid. If you think this kid isn’t going to steal a bottle of butane and start lighting crap on fire with his friends now you don’t remember what it was like to be 10 years old. He would probably be better off learning from Dirk Nowitzki than his insane Cowboys fan dad.
