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