I found an awesome-looking KC Athletics shirt online. I am conflicted over whether or not it would be acceptable for me to wear. On one hand, Kansas City is awesome, and I enjoy baseball history. Also I really like green. On the other hand, the Oakland Athletics are gay.

Please help.

It says "Kansas City" on it, so I'm good with it.

I think it looks pretty damn good. Not so hot on the price though.

Yes it's acceptable. Why not?

It's not much different than a Dallas Texans shirt.

I think it's cooler than a Dallas Texans shirt, cause it says Kansas City on it, and Dallas just makes me think of the Cowboys.

Thats like a Raiders fan wearing an LA Chargers shirt because it says LA on it.

Ok, not that bad, but still.

Yeah, they started out in Philly I think, way before they ever came to KC. Started in Philly in 1901.

They wear throwback uniforms on occasion, but never for a whole year. The Negro League jerseys are the best.

"Fuck him. He was always wearing the wrong shirt and we ran his ass outta here."

I know it says Kansas City, but as a Padres fan, I wouldn't wear any kind of clothing that had another teams name on it. Thats just me.

The only clothing I would put totally off-limits sportswise would be rival teams. No Broncos, Raiders, Chargers, White Sox, Cardinals, etc. It would just feel wrong. But beyond that, if a shirt looks cool, go for it. I found a cool-looking A's shirt at a thrift store once and bought it. Does that mean I'm an A's fan? No. Strictly a fashion choice.

I would wear a Texans shirt but I spent a decade in the state. I'm a Hawkeye fan and have a Mizzou cap and a Longhorn cap. I'm not all hung up on all that loyalty crap with teams any longer. Free Agency kinda ruined that for me. It's not like I'm going to bounce from team to team or bandwagon but a hat is a hat. A shirt is a shirt. If I like it I'm going to buy it and wear it. Does it change who I pull for on Saturday or Sunday? No.

I love baseball, and am a huge Royals fan. If they don't get the history, that's their problem. Get the shirt.

What's wrong with a Dallas Texans shirt? Unlike the Athletics, they're the actual organization still in KC.

I own this hat:

I have to explain it to 90% of people. They want to know why my Royals hat is green and the KC looks different. Or they just assume it's a Monarchs hat.

Very valuable accessory around St. Patrick's Day.

I was a huge A's fan before the Royals ever came into existence. Just as they were turning the corner they move to oakland. i hated Charlie Finley. But I'd still buy the shirt,I dug the kelly green and gold colors.

And if you're from KC and care at all about baseball, I consider this book a must-read:
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51ISZox4n%2BL._SS500_.jpg

All about how the A's were basically a farm team for the Yankees.

(Insert "just like the Royals" joke here.)

To hell with any team that bails on its fans. And that green is nasty.

Absolutely NOT. Here's why:

1) Charlie Finley was a colossal dick.
2) A's bailed on KC. Without Missouri US Senator Stuart Symington, KC would have NEVER gotten another MLB franchise. He greased the deal for AL expansion in 1969.
3) Charlie Finley was a colossal dick.
4) After the A's moved to Oakland (which is the Evil sports twin of KC), the Royals had to battle those sons of bitches from 1970-1975 for the AL West. They beat us down for five long frustrating years.
5) They turned their back on KC. Screw em. Bastages.
6) Did I mention Charlie Finley was a colossal dick?

You'll look much cooler wearing Monarch's gear. The Royals SHOULD have been called the Monarchs, and would have, had it not been for 1960's racism. If the team gets sold, the new owner should re-name the team the KC Monarchs.

Where is a good place online to buy Monarchs gear. I googled it but can't find anything that great and if I do find something it is very expensive.

A little different. KC boned out of Dallas so youre just representing your heritage. A's boned out on KC. It would be like a Cleveland Browns fan wearing a Ravens jersey. Not acceptable in my opinion.

Yeah.......No.

A Ravens jersey doesn't represent Cleveland in any way.

A KC A's jersey does represent the city of KC.

At the end of the day, though, who gives a rat's ass what you wear?

Yeah, Ebbets, Distant Replay, and Red Jacket all of tons of awesome shirts. I wish I was a rapper so I could just wear any team's stuff and get away with it.
