Was Exit 16W, Now Exit 15 E Jesus

Ah, leave it to a Christian sportswear company to rank on our beloved Jersey Devils. The Christian Throwback Jersey (Company) proclaims they are a proud sponsor of Jesus Christ – as opposed to New Jersey who sponsors Satan.

Sooo, CTJ couldn’t just sit back and watch those boys from Jersey in their Devil uniforms maneuver on and off the ice; they just had to make their own - more "Christian" hockey jersey.

And yes, that’s John 3:16 on the back.

Not to throw a wrench in anyone’s marketing plans, but as anyone from Jersey knows, the Devil on our jerseys does not refer to Satan himself, but to the Jersey Devil of the Jersey Pine Barrens, the official demon of NJ since 1933. (Yeah, yeah, other states have Official State flowers and birds, we do have a demon).

While I don’t think there will be a change in team jerseys any time soon, I think we can all agree on one thing with the TCTJ:

Acts 2:21
And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
