On the surface, one might question why Atlanta Braves infielder Dan Uggla has a problem with the Dallas Cowboys.

Professionally, he’s played for the Miami Marlins and Atlanta Braves – so he has no reason to dislike the Cowboys from that point of view. He’s a native of Kentucky and attended high school and college in Tennessee, so again, little reason to wear a ‘Phuck Dallas’ t-shirt, as Uggla was captured doing this past weekend by Crossing Broad:

However, upon closer inspection, Uggla has one very fine reason to root against the Cowboys – his wife.

The power hitting second baseman is married to former Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader Janette Repsch, who understandably has taken over control of his football loyalties. And if she was your wife, you’d probably let her do the same thing.

Of course, judging by his batting average the past few seasons, Uggla may not have even been aware he was wearing such a shirt considering he apparently can’t see much of anything.

Rim shot? No? No? Fine.
