    My supposed new Vikings jersey..

    Well..
    here's the story..

    More than a few years ago, while walking around one of the malls in the Twin Cities, I step into a Champs Sports store.
    I noticed a throwback number 88 jersey..
    So I checked the name, and it was Allen Page's jersey.
    Now, I got excited, because Page has always been my dad's favorite player.
    I check with the clerk to make sure I get the right size for my old man, and I buy it for him for Father's Day.

    Flash forward to a few weeks ago.
    I tell my dad to keep Sept. 14th open because I'm going to take him to the home opener after we join ya'll at the tailgate.
    I also tell him to break out his Page jersey.
    Then I mention to him that since he's got a jersey, I'll have to start shopping for one of my own (after all these years, I STILL have yet to purchase my own Authentic Vikings jersey..
    SAD!!).
    Then this past weekend at our family reunion, he tells me that he bought me a jersey online.
    A Carl Eller throwback.
    He said that since he couldn't find one, he had to do the customize your own jersey.

    Silly old man.
    I never asked or told him he should get one for me..
    I just mentioned that I needed one of my own in passing.
    Hopefully it's Authentic embroidered and not silk screened.
    Either way, though, it's still a Vikings jersey.

    Re: My supposed new Vikings jersey..

    Feel for you on that digital... not easy for getting stuff shipped out. When I wanted my customised jersey I had to order over the phone so that I could pick it up when we went to TC. Only problem was that I had to order it 8 weeks in advance and then spent that time hoping that the guy taking my order had understood my accent
    ;D
    the time seemed to drag by and breathed a huge sigh of relief when I got to the Vikings Locker Room and found that it was just as I wanted
    ;D
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    WTF is THAT bullshit?
    "Clearance in Progress"?
    Clearance for what?
    That it really is a shirt and not a secret fabric bomb?

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Question - wouldn't this "shipping to Europe" thing be easier if someone here shipped it to you?
    Would it need this "Clearance" crap then?
    I see people shipping boxes via the US Postal Service all the time to places overseas and I don't recall anything about it needing to sit for a month in some warehouse....

    I get stuff shipped from overseas and I've never had anything held up in customs.

    I think the deal for the UK is anything worth over £18 is hit with a tax, the customs hold onto the item until you pay up.

    Depending on what it is, yes. You need to fill out a declarations form & describe all the contents. Depending on how much they are backlogged & long the customs agents dilly dally around inspecting your package, it could take several weeks.

    An Xmas package I sent Jing the first week of December last year, didn't arrive until late January/early February.
