In April of 2006, Scary Movie 4 was the top movie at the box office, “Bad Day” by Daniel Powter was atop the Billboard charts, the Pistons were on their way to a 64-win season, and eight-year old Eric Matecun began wearing Pistons jerseys. Every day. Matecun will reportedly not wear a Pistons jersey to school tomorrow, which will end his jersey-wearing streak at 1,460 days.
To the benefit of all, Matecun has worn multiple jerseys during the streak; at least nine, by his count. Many of the jerseys are hand-me-downs from his older brother Bryan, who prudently stopped his own streak when he started high school. Always good to see young fans that devoted to their team, even in lean times.
