NEW YORK - NYCFC fan Wesley Burrows admitted that he was disappointed to emerge from the recent game against the New England Revolution on Wednesday evening without getting in a fight after donning his purchased on e-bay, vintage Sergio Tacchini clobber and his Adidas trainers for the game.
The Nutmeg News spoke to Mr. Burrows in his spacious 200 sq foot studio walk up in the West Village about this grievous issue.
"I like fashion, I like football, and I went to the game last night in Foxborough expecting their casuals to recognize my obscure, vintage, 1980's casual gear that the English appropriated during their days in Europe to wear as a sign of tribal belonging that also allowed them to participate in hooligan activities without getting nicked by the police. Sadly, what I found was people wearing tri-corner hats, scarves, team kits, front office t-shirts and families, FAMILIES in the stands watching the game.
I just couldn't believe that no one wanted to fight me for wearing Sergio Tacchini and walking all over their concourses. I made it MINE."
Mr. Burrows admitted that the only kind of altercation that was had at the game was a 15 year old kid who looked up while texting and told his friend, "Hey, look at this old nerd."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Mr. Burrows plans a walk through Williamsburg to make himself feel better about being on the cutting edge of fashion.
