I feel like this is going to become a daily ritual. I can’t control my instinct to blog interesting stories even though I’m supposed to be working any more than I can control my ability to refrain from eating Peanut Butter M&M’s.
Buster Opney posted his daily column this morning, which if you’re not paying for Insider simply to read his insight you’re not doing it right, and had this to say:
HEADS UP!” Cabrera screamed each time a deep drive went to right. When Cabrera took his turns in the box, he carved long liners to right field, over and over, shouting to the others to guess whether they would clear the fence.
“SI OR NO?” Cabrera yelled. “SI OR NO? SI OR NO?”
When the ball would land on the other side of the chain-link fence, Cabrera punctuated the drive this way: “SI, M———–.”
I then jumped on twitter and saw that Craig Calcattera had posted his thoughts on Hardball Talk:
If that isn’t on a t-shirt with Detroit Tigers colors being sold by a Tigers blogger by the end of the day the Internet has failed.
You guys aren’t going to leave this up to me, right?
Update 02.22.12 @12:30PM EST: Apparently you guys are going to make me do this, which is just grand. I have quite a few people in on it, if I can get 50 comments below (give it the weekend) from people who would buy a shirt then I’ll go forward with it. Yes, I’ll get both censored and uncensored.
Just remember, I want 50 comments below in order to start a design and order.
Initial Phrase on the shirt:
“Si or No?”
UPDATE 02.23.12 @ 12:45PM
NOTE from Detroit Tigers PR: Any profane/ uncensored t-shirts won’t be allowed in Comerica Park, obviously, so chose with that in mind. The word “Mother$%@#$@” implies profanity, so that would not be allowed in the ballpark. As an organization, they do not endorse or embrace this idea. We are free to do as we please, but it is clear that the Detroit Tigers do not endorse this.
Doesn’t mean it’s not cool.
We’ve got enough interest to start digging into getting a shirt/shirts done. Please keep commenting if you are interested, it will only help going forward.
