Picking the right hideous NBA jersey isn't easy, considering how many assaultively teal, dinosaur-afflicted, outsized-logo'ed options there are to choose from. But for those looking to get just the right horrible, sleeveless last-minute gift, we present the conclusion of our Classical Gift-Buying Supplement: this handy (if by no means comprehensive) guide.

As a general rule, it's the thought that counts in gift-giving. There are, however, limits to this. 

The baseball offseason as we know it now is a relatively modern phenomenon, the rough draft version of which having come into being after the demise of the reserve clause. Twitter and the aggregator website MLBTradeRumors.com—twin hegemons in the dispensation of baseball news and non-news -- have turned the offseason into a sort of dystopian universe in which the only thing that matters to a baseball fan is the volume of information stuffed into his or her head.

Jerry Stackhouse has been an All-Star and a scoring champion, but he's never been anyone's favorite player but his own. That has been enough to keep him just pissed-off enough, and to have kept him in the NBA for 18 seasons.

Andy Reid has not won a Super Bowl in his 14 years in Philadelphia. In fact, he's only made it once in five chances. Will it be that fact, or that he made it to five NFC Championship games in the first place, that define his legacy?
