These minor league soccer jerseys led us to discover that Bob The Builder is sexy now

The novelty jersey is a staple of baseball, but we’re starting to see more and more goofy soccer jerseys. Shreveport Rafters FC in the NPSL are raising the bar with this effort.

Rafters FC isn’t saying it’s Bob The Builder themed, but c’mon it’s totally what this jersey is.

[At this point there was a five minute pause in the writing of this piece.]

Sometimes life throws you a curveball. I had intended to find you a nice picture of Bob The Builder, compare the clothing and call it a day — but then I found out that PBS has drastically altered Bob’s look. This might not be news to you, but it shattered me. This is what Bob looks like now.


They broke our sweet little handyman. They ruined my favorite building boy with Crossfit. Why did Bob become sexy? I mean, I get the mechanics of why — dude works all day in construction, he doesn’t sit behind a keyboard surrounded by empty cans of diet root beer like some people I might be revealing too much about.

Still, this was jarring.

Good luck with your jersey promotion Rafters. I’m going to go mourn old Bob.
