Well, that's another conversation. It's like reminding those who revel in Thanksgiving of the consequences of its inception. It's a fart in church. Please don't pull our heads out of the sand. We like them there.

To be clear, I'm not anti sports as activities. They're fantastic and bring much, much joy (and a lesson or two if you're fortunate) to those who play them. It's just about everything else about them that has become a disease. I posted a diatribe about this subject somewhere on the board, so I won't bother to reiterate.

Doesnt matter what you wear, just as long as you are there. One of the nice things about going to a show, is no matter what you are wearing, you fit in and are not judged. The creativity is amazing in this community. Im guilty for wearing a Giants/Stealie.

Zeno you make a valid point in regard to learning a "lesson or two" in sports activities. I coached football for a number of years and I always believed the most important thing I could impart to a child had more to do with respecting one's peers and handling oneself as a gentleman on and off the field. Coaching is a tricky thing when confronted with 25 differnt personalities and learning styles. You quickly find out that "my way," will not necessarily work with this child or that child, so in the process of trying to instill discipline and give back to the community, a coach also learns a "lesson or two." If they are lucky.

The Dead and subsequent offshoot projects are improvisational bands. Improvisation stems from self expression. Sun Ra never asked anybody whether or not they liked his wardrobe.

Haven't posted pics in a while so I hope this works. I have worn this shirt thin, man the stories it could tell, but thankfully it's no snitch! But yeah this is my show shirt, and harvest shirt, If I'm not wearing this you'll prolly find me sporting my Brent Shirt, my Calvin and Hobbes or my sick dye from Emily

To me the number 1 thing I love about the scene is that you can be yourself and express yourself without being judged, absolutely man!! You can be a total freak and let it all out. And I don't think you need to feel guilty atwell!

Some of the Furthur store graphics are cool. I wish they didn't put them on cookie-cutter tie-dyes all the time. Focus the merch on the casual listener and not really the devotees. "Had to get me a dye at the show, d00d!"
