    I live in New Orleans. I’m not into sports, but of course the Saints are popular around here. A few years ago, my grandmother have me for Christmas a Dallas Cowboys snuggie. I assume that they had a stack of them at Walgreens or someplace like that, and she figured a snuggie would make a good gift without even thinking about the football part.

    When I was in eighth grade, I was going through my Marilyn Manson/Nine Inch Nails/Tool phase. This was 1996. Obviously I hated anything to do with sports OR sweaters but, in lieu of this, my aunt got me a blue Rams sweater. Maybe she was thinking that the sweater was the key to changing me around entirely. Almost as if I would open it and go shake my head back and forth real quick with a cartoon sound effect and pop my eyes open and say “Whoa! Where have I been? What year is it? Why do I have all these goth/industrial cds?” It didn’t work.

    Mine was also Game Boy related. I asked for a Game Boy Color for my birthday, which was just a few months after its release. (That was the first GB to have a colored display.) My parents are very attentive and definitely make sure they ask store clerks etc. when making a big present purchase, so I know they did their best. However, what I opened on my birthday was a colored Game Boy – a standard Game Boy with a colored casing. I was SO disappointed, but I didn’t want to hurt my parents’ feelings – it was an honest mix-up, and they were so proud of it (GBs weren’t cheap even in the 90s). So I smiled and did my best to be happy. It wasn’t until a day or so later that my Mom asked how the GB was, and I explained it wasn’t quite what I had wanted. Happily, we were able to exchange it for the right one – and I still have it to this day. Internet links DEFINITELY help a lot with gift-giving!
