Making a Case for the Hoodie

Craig lives in hoodies and sweatshirts, he loves them, and in all honesty I’ve been kinda judgey about it. And then I bought a black hoodie for myself from Neil at Tora Surfboards over the holidays and I basically haven’t taken it off since. I remember my old hoodies from high school, I had one for every sport, tennis, hockey and volleyball. Having to wear a uniform to school everyday, the hoodies were my way of beating the system a little bit on game days. And wearing them made me proud, to be an athlete and a teammate. Maybe it’s the nostalgia or the fact that they kinda make me feel like a badass, maybe it’s just because they’re really comfortable. Whatever it is, I’m making the case for the comeback of the hoodie. Oh, and GO PATS.
