    What I always wear is my favorite football team’s replica kit. Not everyday, but once or twice in a week. My favorite football team is Kashima Antlers in Ibaraki, Japan, that is the one of the strongest team in the J League. They have a match, once or twice a week. So, I go to the Kashima stadium to support them wearing a team kit. But, ofcause there are not only home matches. There are some away matches. Those matches are sometimes held really far away from my city. In that case, I can not go there. But, I wear a kit in front of the TV and watch a match. Every match is held on a weekend, so that gives me power and it encourages me for the next week.
    This year, Kashima Antlers finished the league 5th place, and could not win any cup except small one. Until the last match of the league, they were 3rd place, and had a chance to become season champion. But they lost the match, then finished 5th. This situation that they finished without any title has not happened for the last seven years. Last year, Antlers finished their season 11th place in the league, but they got A Nabisco Cup. This year, their position got higher in the league than last year, but could not win both Emperor Cup and A Nabisco Cup. So, there will be no more games in this season, and that also means there will be no chance for me to wear the Antlers’ kit until next season. But the Antlers’ kit is very special clothing for me, so may be I will wear it when I need a power or need to become stronger. The
    kit of the favorite football team is not just clothing for me.
