Adult footie pajamas: A trend story that’s warm and cozy

Horrible picture. These were taken the day my mom gave me Penn State footie pajamas.

Click here to read my story on the adult footie pajama trend that’s sweeping the nation.

As some of you know, I’m a huge footie pajama advocate.

In fact, I blogged about the topic not too long ago for YDR.

Ever since then, I’ve been scouring York County in a search for my fellow footie brethren.

One day last month, I had the hankering for a light-hearted story.

Everything’s so negative these days.

And I knew they were out there — hiding beneath their zip-up fleece cocoons of warmth.

I posted something about footie pajamas on the York Daily Record/Sunday News Facebook page and got about 30 responses to my inquiry.

Of course, a few of those comment came from the usual Negative Nancies.

You know the type. They’re the kind of people who want to make fun of you for having a “slow news day.”

Total armchair journalists.

These people made me even more determined to give footies their due ink.

I interviewed a few folks and even got a sociologist to weigh in on the fad.

That involved an interesting call to York College, by the way.

I tried to keep a straight face in my conversation with the communications director.

But I think I checked my seriousness at the door when I said, “Hello, do you have an expert I can talk to about adult footie pajamas?”

I think the story turned out well, but haters gon’ hate.

Also, as proof that footie pajamas are indeed the coolest thing since the Snuggie, I leave you with this video of Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop.”

Batman footies make an appearance around 2:25.
