Refugees The World Over Will Be Styling In New York Jets Conference Champions Gear

In what has become an annual tradition this time of year – as well as any other time a division, conference, league champion is crowned – boxes upon boxes of 2011 AFC Champions Gear emblazoned with the New York Jets logo that would have gone unused here in the States will instead be shipped out to regions across the globe to those in desperate need of clothing, regardless of the accuracy of what is printed on it.

Those who will benefit from the NFL’s benevolence this time around – I should note that Chicago Bears Championship gear will also be included – will be the citizens of the countries of Zambia, Romania, Armenia, and Nicaragua, via the charitable organization World Vision.

I am told that in the case of the Jets gear, shirts, hats and towels are among the items which will be delivered to those in need, but one item in particular will not be included in the shipment: 2011 AFC Champion Jets slippers, although I haven’t a clue who snatched all of those up…somebody who likes feet, I guess.
