I want to personally thank Fed Ex for deliberately throwing away my National Championship Jersey & compensating it by saying “Sorry”.

This is the tweet Russ Smith sent out tonight claiming that FedEx had purposely thrown away his National Championship jersey. Smith goes on to explain in a series of tweets that the jersey had been shipped to him in a cracked frame and that FedEx would only allow him to return it to be fixed if he were to include the jersey with the frame. FedEx would then apparently throw the jersey away and offer nothing but a simple apology for the incident. I think I speak for the majority of people when I say that something seems a little odd about this situation. I look for the jersey to possibly surface sometime down the road and if not then someone must have gotten themselves a nice gift. To me this is a heartbreaking experience, something that Russ had worked so hard, something that took an entire NCAA career to achieve and now it’s gone because of what seems to be a careless act.
