A Tacoma, Wash. teenager claims he was fired after wearing a Broncos jersey to work. After 17-year-old Nathaniel Wentz sported the Denver garb his bosses requested that he go home and change. Wentz never returned to work, and was fired a day later.
The young man professes to be a diehard fan, and that he didn’t agree with the store’s policy.
“It was all about you can’t. You can’t represent your team. There’s something wrong with that,” said Nathaniel.
These stories pop up from time to time, and this seems like some teen trying to make a stand over something trivial and inconsequential. Whatever the case, it generated a pretty good quote from one Seahawks fan.
“I think it’s crazy,” said Hawks fan Bernie Crump, as he waited in line outside Century Link Field to pick up his Super Bowl tickets. “We’re civilized here. It’s not like we live in Philadelphia!”
