2009 Card-vent Calendar: December 5

December 5, 2009:
2008 Donruss Sports Legends #72 Rick Majerus "Personally Worn Material" (207/400)

Why is Rick Majerus applauding? I'd like to think it's because of Wisconsin's Big Ten/ACC Challenge victory over Duke earlier this week.

Majerus is a Milwaukee kind of guy through and through. After getting this card out of the calendar today, I looked him up on Wikipedia and found that his first coaching job was for the 8th grade boys' team at the Catholic church which I attend and live two blocks from. I have always held out hope that he would find some way to end his career in some capacity in Milwaukee, be it with Marquette, UWM, or some other team.

His page entry also makes the bold claim that he "enjoys bratwurst." Yeah, just like fish "have gills."

Good Lord, that is such a poorly designed game used card. For a minute there, I thought I was looking at censored porn.

Game used Rick Majerus loincloth, nice. Has anyone put out a Tarkanian towel card yet?

My immediate thought when I saw the picture was "Since when do sumo wrestlers wear clothing?". Then my second thought was like Chris's: "Is that a swatch of fabric or is it the equivalent of Grady Sizemore's coffee cup". Yikes.
