As of today, Peyton Manning has the highest-selling football jersey. Too bad kids in the Weld County School System can't wear it. The reason? The No. 18 is on a list of gang-related numbers, which includes 13, 14, 31, 41 and 81, that are banned by the Colorado school district. Third grader Konnor Vanatta wore Manning's jersey to school last week and was told to take it off due to their anti-gang policy. The school district says that the policy has been around for more than three years, so you can't really blame them. Rules are rules, kids.
Konnor wore a No. 61 jersey on Tuesday in protest. In the immortal words of Chuck D, "Fight the Power!"
