Wouldn't that release noxious fumes into the air? :sign03:

If he has the receipt go exchange it for a Steelers jersey.

I learned the hard way that burning a jersey can cause someone to get really pissed off at you.

I once received a Clowns sweatshirt as a gift from a friend of mine who is a Clowns fan. Whenever he comes over for the games I use it as a door mat, or place it in front of the toilet.

Priorities... Family first then everything else follows. You would be an A$$ if you burned it or exchanged it. Your son will make decisions for himself later in life... so get used to not being in control. Let him know the Steelers are the BEST, but let him make up his mind later.

Gotta know...Why did you select a different team than the one your family cheers for (and the one they hate the most to boot)? Did they burn a Steelers shirt when you were two?

First, I think I'd bleach the hell out of to sanitize it. Then I'd burn it. Though I do like the doormat idea alot. LOL!

Yep. All the Steeler love is cool and all, but you can't go causing family problems over a jersey for a two year old child. Is the uncle who gave him the jersey your brother?

Let your boy wear the jersey. He'll decide for himself what team he likes when he gets older.

Well, although I would normally say this is a family matter and you shouldn't do anything about it, I think you should exchange it for a Porter jersey. Either that or let him keep it and have him wear it when your family comes over.

Exchange it. You're still keeping the gift. Besides, the uncle should know better than that (if he knows you're a Steeler fan).

it was probably given as sarcasm. My best friend is the biggest raider fan in the world. I got his son a steeler bib, steeler one piece and little steeler socks.

If you want to keep the peace, just put it away till he outgrows it! At his age, that won't take long-then give it away to the Salvation Army or something.
And if they visit alot & never see him wearing it, maybe that'll be a subtle hint not to throw money away on something like that in the future.

Burn or excghange it. I wouldn't allow that shit. They did this to spite you.

Just because they gave it to him doesn't mean he has to wear it!! I know when mykids were that age my wife or I picked out his wardrobe!!:tt02: :tt02:

DUDE.... all these people saying dont mess with the fam, are WRONG! Obviously the uncle did it to razz you. Therefore razz him back by either publicly burning the thing, or publicly desicrating it in some way. Then for his birthday (or his kids if applicable) get them some BLACK AND GOLD gear!!!!

Say Thank You.... but it seems to me that it was done to piss you off,,,,, and it did... go exchange the jersey for credit, and ask your son when he is old enough what jersey he would like...We all hope he chooses our beloved STEELERS, and you do have the home field advantage... He'll listen to his Daddy! Just always make sure when you watch football, that your son is wearing a jersey the same color as you are....

And go tell those Browns family fans "Thank You"... " But my son roots with his Daddy" !

Look, having a 18 month daughter and a ratbird fan for a father, my father threatened to dress my daughter in that puke purple. However, I told my father from the beginning that he may get my daughter in some sort of ratbird gear but as soon as I got her back, I would take the garment off and properly dispose of it.
Maybe he was trying to get you razzed up but you've got to protect the little ones when no one else will.
Take it back, exchange it, or burn it. But you've got to let the family know that clowns gifts are not acceptable for the little one!

:grin: Personally, I would write a REALLY gracious thank you note expressing your gratitude for his thoughtfulness toward your son. I'd add that he shouldn't be concerned about the obvious screwup that the store made in wrapping the wrong gift. And, that you've rectified it by exchanging it for the proper Steeler fan gear for him....so as to save him the trouble. I'd add that you were certain that he would want you to raise your son in accordance with your high standards. I'd close with another thanks. :wink02:

I'd say "Wow, thanks for remembering [insert name here] birthday and the gift, but you must've forgotten that we root for the Steelers here--it's no problem though, I just exchanged it for a [insert name here] jersey to save you the bother" :smile:
