My little brother, a dedicated Wings fan like me, has had a growing appreciation for Dats as he learns more about the game. Being 8 years old, every deke, pass, shot, and goal is a magical moment for him. Follow me after the jump for the catastrophe.
This year for Christmas, my parents felt that it would be fitting to get him a jersey of his favorite player in the NHL - Pavel Datsyuk of course. They had my grandmother (who lives in Michigan) put a jersey on hold at a local sports shop and it was going to be great. It's not exactly easy to find Datsyuk jerseys her in the Windy City. When my grandmother went to get the jersey, however, the store had sold it away to someone else and there were none left. Now we're in trouble because he only asked for two things for Christmas - the jersey and an air hog. I've been scouring shop.NHL.com trying to find a jersey for an 8 year old, but they seem to not have kid sizes even in their kids section. If any of you guys or girls know of a place where we can buy a Datsyuk jersey or a blank customizable jersey online and have it shipped within a few days, I can't even tell you how thankful we'd be. I'd be as happy as Hudler. Please, if anyone has any knowledge to share, be generous.
Thanks in advance and happy holidays.
