Every day people wear random outdated replica jerseys out in public.

"Straight Cash, Homey!" is devoted to finding these relics and snapping pictures of them. We'll post the cream of the confusing crop each week here on Page 2. We need your help, though! We're only two people, so if you find a gem, take a picture and send it to us! E-mail:

Just remember, it should be a candid shot, not you in front of a mirror sporting that Pooh Richardson Pacers jersey you never threw away. For daily updates, check out our blog

Live! From Tampa! Ryan Leaf, Chargers: As soon as this guy buys that charcoal and fires up his grill, he can finally burn his Ryan Leaf jersey. (Found in NYC)

Live! From Tampa! Az-Zahir Hakim, Lions: Just after we took this picture, Matt Millen ran up to this guy and offered him an 8-year, $30 million contract with the Lions. He declined. (Found in Philadelphia)

Live! From Tampa! Detlef Schrempf, Sonics: Forget assist-to-turnover ratio; Detlef Schrempf led the league in consonant-to-vowel ratio every year he was a pro. (Found in West Philadelphia)

Live! From Tampa! Doug Flutie, Chargers: We know what you're thinking, "Why are there two Chargers QB jerseys?" Because we couldn't find a Stan Humphries jersey. Otherwise there would have been three. (Found in Market Street, Philadelphia)

Live! From Tampa! Dennis Rodman, Mavericks: This kid learned a valuable lesson that Christmas -- always thank Grandma, no matter how confused you are about the Rodman jersey she bought you. (Found by Howard in Shaker Heights, Ohio)

Live! From Tampa! Koren Robinson, Seattle Seahawks: "This guy doesn't even drink; the jersey just came with a free 12-pack of beer." (Found by Jay in Greensboro, N.C.)
