Don’t say you weren’t warned!
And now, folks, it’s time for a true ‘Shit Kit’ love story betwixt a plucky young man named Joel and, of all things, David Seaman’s seizure-inducing Euro ’96 goalkeeper kit.
Notorious in shit kit circles for its power to nauseate even the sternest stomach, Joel had tried relentlessly over the course of several years to get his hands on a replica of Seaman’s infamous jersey, repeatedly tapping “Euro 96 England goalkeeper kit” into Ebay with the vain hope that one day a suitable listing would appear.
Alas, it wasn’t to be, the years went by, a decade passed and Joel was on the brink of giving up in his desperate search for his one true love.
That was until, out of the blue, something magical happened…
Shortly thereafter, Joel posted the following photo to his Facebook page – looking proud as punch while modelling his new acquisition in the back garden (everyone else can see that gigantic white steed, right?), complete with classic-era David Seaman tribute lip adornment…
‘Twas written in the stars! Well played that man!
