Hey, if those jerseys are for real, I'd love to own one. I agree that poseurs are annoying, if one defines a poseur as someone who rides to make others think he is cool rather than for any other reason. Of course this would apply to anyone who does anything for appearances rather than substance. Come to think of it doesn't that make "poseur" a synonymn for "politician"? It may be hard to judge if someone is truly sincere, but some people are pretty glaringly phony.

SORRY, This was not my intent ~ it was just my intent to share a humorour jersey with the CR crowd, and bring up the subject of posers. I guess this is a sore subject with many.
