Sports T Shirts

Sports T Shirts: The t-shirt design crowd is generally a snarky and unathletic bunch, so you get a lot of misdirection here, but there are some true sports fans pumping out cool tees remembering great games, franchises, and athletes.

Tim Lincecum versus Cliff Lee. Game One. World Series. AT&T Park. This is great. Basically, it’s proving I’m a fair weather fan. Not since I lived in the Bay Area and went to a lot of games with my Dad, who got into Candlestick Park free with a clergy pass, have I really given a damn about San Francisco Giants baseball. Actually, I gave them some passing interest when they were having success in the late 80s, and gave them a glance when Bonds will carrying them on his broad shoulders and fat head.

Dude. I thought that this was a Saturday Night Live skit or something. But, it is for real, and it is awesome. This Vietnam Vet Jimmy McMillan is running for the office of New York governor affiliated with the “The Rent is Too Damn High” party. That’s pure gold, especially since he looks like the black Colonel Sanders.

Cigar Guy T Shirt Update

by on October 20, 2010

You certainly remember when the Cigar Guy hit the Internet by storm for a minute. Well, the folks over at the Daily Mail figured out the dude was unassuming, Rupesh Shingadia. Seems he  was actually trying to honor the “play by his own rules” style of Spanish golfer, Miguel Angel Jimenez. He wasn’t really trying to be a star, but he entered the zeitgeist for sure.  Anyway, I had predicted in my last Cigar Guy T Shirt post that their would be many shirts featuring Rupesh popping up. In fact, I have only found one over at redbubble.com, and it isn’t really what I’m looking for. It goes in an outlandish direction, when I think this subject needs to be portrayed accurately, because of the fantastic humor in the ginger wig, the moustache, the cigar, and the unintentional pose.

Icing the Kicker T Shirt

by on October 19, 2010

This is a shout out to Smirnoff Ice and football. Looks like the ball is on a tee, so this is a kickoff. At first I thought this was a field goal attempt, but I guess that would have been too confusing, because there actually is a dude that takes a knee during that play, so it wouldn’t have been as cool as this. Maybe, he’s just refreshing, he’ll throw the bottle behind him and the long snapper will get it to him. Place, spin ball laces out and boop. I guess that’s probably a little nerve racking also. All eyes are right there, so taking the edge off isn’t such a bad thing.

There are people that are horders or collectors or gotta have the latest and greatest gadget, gizmo, or in this case basketball kicks. Lebron is already droppin’ his South Beach shoe as the 8th in his Nike series.

Misdirection galore here. That’s a baseball player taking a mighty cut, aiming for the cheap seats, but probably whiffing super badly because Tim “The Freak” Lincecum just threw a nasty slider. It has nothing to do with a touchdown, which is the name of a score worth six points in the game of American football. That’s why it’s funny. People will come up to you scratch their heads and walk away. Hot women will get it right away and totally want to jump your bones…yeah, even you are a girl. It’s just what happens when you wear the Touchdown Baseball Batter T Shirt.

Unathletic T Shirt

by on October 9, 2010

Styled like the Oakland Athletics logo, this is a fine example of flipping a commonly seen image on its head, and making it humorous, so that you chuckle to yourself, while you sit in your miserable cube and the other cube prisoners wondering what sort of fucking off your doing rather than getting your work done. Little do they know you’re enjoying some of the finest t shirt humor going from our friends at Busted Tees.

Headline Shirts kind of stepping out of its comfort zone with this religious and football themed shirt. I applaud them. It takes guts to try new things, especially when you’re comfortably kicking butt with your regular funny, political, irreverent stuff. Well, I guess this is still pretty irreverent, and maybe even sacrilegious in certain circles. Mess with God in any way and you’re asking for trouble, and this particular Zeus-like depiction, participating in a game of man, could really rankle the fundamentalist Christians snooping around the Internet.

Cigar Guy T Shirt

by on October 6, 2010

Second Update: Now, we’re getting somewhere, actually capturing some of the magic. This Cigar Guy headshot features some of the best details.

Update: Here’s a t shirt featuring a cartoonishly buff Cigar Guy. Not sure I agree with the approach, since the outfit he had on and the particular way his hip juts out, and the hands in the pocket are much of what makes cigar guy, the cigar guy.

Best Penalty Kick Ever

by on September 28, 2010

This has nothing to do with funny t shirts, but it’s worth a post nonetheless. Not sure how I missed this earlier this month, but it is truly awesome. On a penalty kick the goalie guesses right, but forgets to take into account the phenomenon of back spin. I love the chest pounding celebration as the ball rolls in. Beautiful. Sorry I can’t tell you who’s playing. I think it’s the Moroccan League. Dig it:

This is a hilarious shirt. I love it. The notion of some secret order that’s ruled the Earth for centuries with an mind-blowing mix of dark arts and hyper intelligence. Applying pressure to sensitive points in the entire global economy, making puppets of the most powerful leaders, this group just in the last couple decades has decided to become a little more kinder and gentler…more in touch with the youth that they’ll need to recruit to continue and realize their ultimate plan.

Luck Febron T Shirt

by on September 20, 2010

I imagine a lot of folks in Cleveland appreciate this shirt. Look, I don’t give a guy a hard time if after seven years he decides he wants to switch teams when he becomes a free agent. Even if the Cavs were theoretically his hometown team, he gave them seven amazing years, so that’s not an issue.
