The only time I wore my Jets jersey to a non-Jets game was when we had double-header day. The Bombers played the Als at 2 and the Jets played the Hurricanes later that day at 7 (iirc, e&oe).
Hedging my bets meant wearing my Jets jersey underneath my Bomber jersey. Got a laugh from Sara Orlesky on the sidelines (my Bomber seats were / are front row on the field) when I showed how Winnipeg sports fans 'dress in layers'.
Other than that my Jets jersey stays in the closet. It's just not a comfortable garment for non-gameday wear.
If I didn't have a Bomber jersey with me, I'd wear my Jets jersey to a Bombers-Eskimos game. Just to show my affiliation and let everyone know who I'm cheering for. There were quite a few Jets jerseys in the crowd at Commonwealth shortly after the purchase of the Thrashers was announced IIRC.
Also, I do wear my Jets jersey around campus, but only on game days when we're playing a team that has a good chance of there being fans around campus (Toronto, Montreal etc.) just because I find it fun if I catch the eye of someone sporting their colours.
it makes as much sense as wearing a Jets jersey to a Habs/Leafs game. Just weird IMO
i've worn a jets jersey to numerous NHL games before the Jets came back.....if you are not a fan of either team, why not show where you come from.....i would do it now even with the jets back....i find it is always a great conversation starter...every time i do wear one somewhere in a foreign city people come up to talk about it.
when i wore my expos cap and jets jersey to the last expos game in new york i was showered with condolences.....they definitely got the irony....my two childhood teams, both gone.
funny thing is, i don't wear a jets jersey to jets games now.
I never stopped wearing my Jets gear when the team left. I would wear a Jets jersey or T-shirt depending on the event. Since they've been back I havn't been attending many non Jets sporting events. Coors field - Jets t-shirt and I was on the jumbo- tron. Jobing.com in 2009 and 2010 Jets jersey. My wife and daughter appeared on sportsnet as we were all decked out. Vancouver 2010 both mens semi final games in Jets jerseys. Wearing a Jets jersey at the Olympics attracted alot of attention and conversation. I even met the son or grandson of the guy who designed one of the original Jets logo. Stamford Bridge I wore my Jets t-shirt. I wore my Jets t-shirt to the burj al arab in Dubai but no one recognized it and I seemed a bit underdressed.
