Houston

Okay, you wanna know what’s roasting my ass?

That so many official resources were dedicated to a shirt.  A shirt, that’s all it is.

If you’re in Houston, and your car is stolen, not only will the HPD not go to this extent to try to find both it and the thieves, they might not even send an actual cop to the scene of the crime or to you personally, they’ll just take your report over the phone.

Doesn’t it depend really on the value of the car in question? If your 2017 Rolls Royce or Bentley or Bugatti is stolen, I suspect you’d get cops to show their faces. And the shirts belonging to the feetsball player probably have about the same value as a Rolls for the right loopy rich collector.

On the other hand, somebody jacks a 1984 Mitsubishi or one of my old t-shirts, I’d be surprised if the cops didn’t just hang up on the call.

The nation as a whole, and Texas especially, is a bunch of jock sniffers. Those jerseys are far more important than anything else.

My cynical view is: if a tip on the jerseys came in as the same time as a tip on the location of a rape being live-streamed on social media, the jerseys would win out if for no other reason that more glory and more headlines.

“A shirt, that’s all it is.” It’s not even a $500k shirt, as long as it’s marked with the Stolen Property tag. Where’s the thief going to sell it, Dubai or Macau?
A fitting (pun?) punishment would be for the NFL to discontinue Beaner Appreciation Month.

“Where’s the thief going to sell it, Dubai or Macau?”

Yes. Just like that stolen RR, Bentley, Bugatti, or Picasso. The world has many many rich folks who don’t care about the provenance of the item, just that they possess it and Abdul, Li Kwan, or Paolo does not. Less famous items, including stolen white children, disappear into these private collections overseas all the time. We ought to have known these shirts went outside our borders, it’s only in the USA where insane levels of government borrowing and debt can finance a massive manhunt (or shirt-hunt) for such frivolous reasons.

I’ve got to disagree with you guys. I am not a sports fan, as a matter of fact I’m allergic to sports and there’s not enough money in the world to induce me to attend a ball game of any sort, BUT I really enjoyed the exposure of the Mexican La Prensa reporter who has been pilfering items for years. Talk about confirmation bias!

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
