Adding to the Man Cave

For a while now, I've been wanting to display some of my jerseys in my Man Cave.  I had an idea in my head about how I wanted to do it, but I hadn't had much time to put my plan into action.  Yesterday gave me a nice opportunity to try out my idea and see how it would play out.

I put little loop screws into the wood molding around the ceiling and ran fishing line from one screw to another.  I made 3 lines, since I knew one line would sag too much in the middle.  I look at the pictures now and really wish I had something to hold the jerseys up other than clothespins, but they will have to do for now.  I do like how my Kinston jerseys look, especially the camo one.  I'm still amazed at how I was able o get that one, especially with the dirt on it.

The other jerseys I hung were two football jerseys.  The white practice jersey was used by my older brother Philip in High School and the black #88 is my brother Adam's game worn Wofford jersey.  I got the Roberts jersey from my good friend Lisa for Christmas back in 2005; it is a replica Roberts 2005 All Star warmup jersey.

I don't think of these as finished products just yet, my mind will be working overtime to try to perfect the way they look, but it seems to work for now.  I'm sure by the time I am satisfied with them, I'll have tried a few different things.

Cool. Try those glorified paper clips called binder clips.
