Random Raptors' Fan of the Week

There's almost nothing that cracks me up like people wearing random sports team gear.

A 17 year-old with a Darius Miles, Clippers' jersey at a baseball game.

A 3 year old with a T-Wolves toque and mitts.

There's just something about these situations that I find amusing, because they always make me wonder how they arose in the first place.

Was the 1- year old a big Clippers' fan, or did he nab the jersey at a Value Village?

Were the 3-year old's parents huge KG fans?

With that in mind, and with no end in sight to the lock-out, I thought it might be funny to start posting some photos of random Torontonians in Raptors' gear.  I took the two below on a streetcar earlier this week and was dying to ask the wearer why he was rocking an old-school Dinos' cap.  Or if he could name a single player from the team, in any era.

(Although who knows, maybe he was a big Walt Williams fan...)

Unfortunately no go as I had to get off before I got the chance.

However I did manage to snap these two pics...
