Sports Jerseys

Why not?

When March madness is in full swing, it may be tempting to live in your favorite team’s jersey and paint your face. However, we all know the boss is going to be more interested in how much time you’re spending online checking the scores instead of doing your job, so do yourself a favor and leave the jersey at home.

Try me instead:

Get a pin with your team’s logo to wear on your lapel, or coordinate your shirt and tie with your team’s colors. Or just save the superfan action for after work.

The Exception

Kobe Bryant, LeBron James (People who are actually paid to play sports)
