Sports Fan With Own Name On Back Of Jersey Not Entirely Sure Why He Did That
May 22nd - Sources say that 42-year-old Massachusetts resident Ted Savarin, who bought a Boston Bruins jersey several years ago and specifically asked to have his own surname printed on the back, is not entirely sure why he did that.
Telling reporters on Wednesday morning that he thought it might have been a good idea at the time, he has assured friends and members of his family that he realizes this whole mess could have been avoided. After issuing an apologetic statement through his social media accounts yesterday evening, Savarin lamented that we may never really know why it happened.
“It’s just one of those things,” said Savarin, while still wearing the jersey. “Maybe I thought people would assume I was really a professional hockey player who played in the NHL, and they would ask for my autograph. Maybe I thought if I had my own jersey and the team ever needed an extra guy on the ice I could jump in, you know? Maybe that's it. But the reality of it is we'll never know for sure why I did that.”
For the foreseeable future, Savarin plans to continue wearing the jersey with his own name on the back to hockey games, as well as to events completely unrelated to the sport, such as trips to the bank, birthday parties, and when he gets medication for his cat’s glaucoma.
“At the end of the day, I have no regrets...aside from the usual stuff, like not living a meaningful life, and my family doesn't really talk to me and my friends have stopped coming around. Would I do it again if given another chance? Most likely. Hard to say.”
