Paintball Pants at School!

Trying something. Every Monday, wear your paintball pants to school! I think this will be a great billboard for paintball and it could spark up plenty of conversations about paintball!

If you can, throw up photos

Of course, don't violate school dress code in doing this!

Let me know if you think I'm nuts, I think it's a pretty cool idea.

good initiative, bad idea.

I'd start off with stickers or decals on your laptop or books, from there it can spark up conversations. Even paintball tshirts or manufacturer tshirts will work, but don't wear a jersey.

Unless you really go all out and wear a jersey as well, and tell people it's all paintball stuff, it's not going to work out well. Like said above, paintball pants kinda look like goth kid pants when they're out of context.

People would confuse the for snowboard/motocross/[insert other type of pants] here.

If you want to talk about paintball at school, start a club or get friends who play.

Terrible idea. Support the sport by wearing companies apparel, not your paintball pants to school.

People will look at you like you're special needs. Like the thought, bad idea though.

I refused to wear my paintball jersey to school even when we had special days during the year to wear your favorite jersey to school day or whatever lame **** it was. It would have been perfectly accepted, but it was like.....naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. I'll rock a tshirt with my sponsor on it instead.

If you want to try to get people to start talking about paintball just start talking about it. Wear t-shirts with paintball manufactures, add stickers to laptop or bookbag. I would highly recomend not wearing what you play in to school. Now here is something to debate: What if your school has a paintball team and you wear your jersey and pants on a day that you are going to a tournament? Would that be acceptable?
