Reading Royals 'Ugly Christmas Sweater' jerseys will make your day

It’s official. The Reading Royals of the ECHL just won Christmas.

For just one night, the Royals are reaching straight into your grandmother’s closet to break out Ugly Christmas Sweater jerseys, complete with reindeer, snowflakes and Christmas trees.

“The ECHL's Reading Royals are getting in the holiday spirit, and are set to rock these Christmas sweater jerseys on Dec. 14 for their annual Teddy Bear Toss game.

No word yet on whether forward Ryan Santana will shorten his name for the festivities.”
