Roger Goodell has gone too far.
Days ago, I saw this night terror of a sweater, likely to haunt my dreams for the rest of the decade. I assumed the sweater fit in to the same category as Freddy Krueger and Smurfs: terrifying things that clearly are not real.
This may be the worst thing about the NFC South this year and I don't think it is even close. pic.twitter.com/rIzWy8d0Q2— Matt (@FalconsM5) November 26, 2014
I do not mean to alarm anyone, but these sweaters are real. And they are officially licensed by the NFL. For only $64.95 (plus tax, shipping and handling), you can own the following atrocity.
I apologize to the hundreds of you who have just sworn off football for life. For the remaining readers, here is the terrible description.

"Do you not understand ugly holiday sweater parties? Do you want people to instantly hate you before you tell them you spent $80 after tax to own this sweater? This is a great way to lose friends and alienate people during the holidays."
