Young Fan Refuses To Take Off Lucky Shirt
March 29, 2012 by staff
Young Fan Refuses To Take Off Lucky Shirt, He’s only 8 years old, but Kansas super fan Palmer Kiefer already knows that you never mess with a winning streak. And with his beloved Jayhawks in the Final Four on Saturday, the second-grader from Wichita, Kan., is closing in on two weeks of wearing his lucky No. 15 Kansas jersey, the number of former KU star Mario Chalmers and current guard Elijah Johnson.
Palmer has worn it every day since Friday, March 16, when Kansas defeated Detroit in the NCAA tournament’s second round – and it’s not coming off for good until the Jayhawks lose or win it all Monday night in New Orleans.
As reported by the Wichita Eagle, Kiefer takes it off for baths but warned his mother not to wash away the stink because that could dissipate the Jayhawks’ luck as well. Even Febreze has been shunned.
His mother, Susan, posted the following on Facebook recently, which was aimed at the students and teachers at Palmer’s Hyde Elementary School:
“I apologize in advance for Palmer wearing his KU jersey every day until they play again. … I have been instructed not to wash it or it will mess with KU’s winning streak.
