Philadelphia’s Veterans Stadium was a rough place, but it housed the Eagles from 1971-2002 and the Phillies from 1971-2003 with aplomb. So, there was obviously the Philly pride, and I’m sure they had some damn fine pretzels, but I’m not quite sure what the prison means. Perhaps the site has been retrofitted to house criminals. I’m going to do 19 seconds more research to see if I can find the answer to this important question.
Nope. The stadium was actually imploded in 32 seconds in 2004 according to Wikipedia. Must be the rabble rousers in the crowd, who brought a criminal element to the proceedings that prompted this word on the shirt.
Doesn’t matter really. It’s cool, so get The Vet Pride, Pretzels, Prison 1971-2003 T Shirt.
Anybody know a Busted Tees employee so we can get the inside scoop on this? Or perhaps you’re from Philly and know the answer. Leave it in the comments, please.
