Banned NFL jerseys list causes uproar
What a bunch of idiots.

This week, the list of objectionable phrases that you couldn't put on the back of a personalized jersey at NFL.com surfaced, and it caused quite a stir. Among the banned terms: Pimpjuice, Barf, 420, Budweiser, He Hate Me, Dahmer, Carruth and even Dome.

Several internet blogs ran with the list of more than 1,100 banned phrases, and it caused outrage among gay-rights activists when they learned that "gay" was among the banned terms.

And the NFL responded, removing the phrase from the list Thursday, certainly good news to fans of former NFL players Ben Gay and William Gay and current Patriots cornerback Randall Gay. "Tongue," however, remains on the list, which is sure to disappoint fans of the Jets' Reggie Tongue.

4. 420 is slang for
4:20 - time to get high (smoke grass)

Theres thousands of people in each time zone smoking at that time.

6. Varies Depend on Who You Talk To.
It runs the gamut. Some say it's a code for marijuana (or a reference to an obscure referandum on some state to legalize marijuana). Others say it's for Adolf Hitler who was born on 4/20.

9. It's a play on words
420 sounds like "fort wendy" which is the infamous military installation that was haunted by a ghost that legend says was friendly

16. So, buy a jersey and have your local T-shirt print shop put it on.
