Charlotte Hornets Jacket in Paris

Yesterday, while walking through Luxembourg Gardens with Amanda, Heidi, and Stephen, I notice a young man (of course, with two young women) sporting a Charlotte Hornets jacket.




The Charlotte Hornets were a professional basketball team from 1988-2002 in Charlotte, NC, our home town, before relocating to New Orleans. The logo for the New Orleans Hornets was slightly modified so I am quite certain this is a jacket from the Charlotte franchise.

What are the odds of seeing such a team jacket in Paris on someone who would have been an early teen at best when the team existed?

Walking out of our apartment on our way to see Elton John I noticed another Charlotte Hornets jacket on a student at the high school across the street.




In talking to him briefly, I saw it was definitely a Charlotte Hornets (rather than New Orleans Hornets) jacket. He said it was his brothers.

Now, comparing to the first picture, I can see it looks like the same kid and jacket.

He definitely has it going on with the girls, huh?.

Must be the jacket.
