We All Wear Hoodies Now

Hoodies are much in the news now as a result of the tragic shooting of Trayvon Martin by a security guard in Florida. National Basketball Association star LeBron James and his teammates on the Miami Heat as well as rap artist Sean Combs are among celebrities who've joined a social media campaign rallying “A Million Hoodies for Trayvon Martin,” according to a Bloomberg News story here. I didn't think much about hoodies until this tragedy occurred. I own one. My favorite one, a blue Gonzaga bulldog hoodie that I wear when walking or biking outside in this weather. It's my go-to sweatshirt. I rarely put the hood up, however. It was bone-chilling cold & windy during a walk along the north shore last time I wore it. How about you?

Question: Do you own/wear a hoodie?
