It’s the Last Night to Order Your “¿Si or No?” T-Shirts

Tonight it Sunday the 4th and the last night to order your Miguel Cabrera inspired ¿Si or No? T-Shirts. All current orders will be sent to the printer tomorrow for creation and distribution later this week. Doug Zuba and I will talk sometime soon to determine if they’ll go back up for another week.

So, if you’re on the fence, not sure which way to lean, pick one up tonight and at least put it up on your basement wall.

From last week:

When I read Buster Olney’s blog last week and thought it would be a good idea for a t-shirt. I’d never done anything like that before and thought while it would be a good idea, it’d never go anywhere.

Then, I read Craig Calcaterra’s post on Cabrera’s quote and the call out for a Tigers blogger to make a t-shirt. I laughed at myself. It would be totally neat to actually do one, but with my schedule and the reality of pulling it off based on my dedication to seeing it through, I doubted I would actually do it.

However, I talked to a few Tiger’s fans that I’m close with and all of them told me to do it. So I contacted a local t-shirt company who gave me quotes, I was still unsure because I wasn’t sure how to juggle sizes and whatnot.

I figured I would do a post and see what kind of response I could get out of it. If I got at least, say 50 comments or so on it then I’d consider investing.

Well, that post turned out to be a great idea because it put me in touch with Dough Zuba of Alternative Hero and a week later we collaborated and launched the shirt.

Tuesday morning I figured I’d at least let Buster Olney and Craig Calcaterra know what their work had produced, so I tweeted both of them the link to the site and the shirt.

Well, then this happened:

When I heard Miguel Cabrera say this last week, I thought it’d make a great T-shirt. And now it’s happened. walkoffwoodward.com/?p=1131

and he responded to my original tweet:

@WalkoffWoodward Hey, tweeted about the T-shirt; sorry about the site traffic.

Let’s just say that was a bit of an understatement.

Then, Calcaterra took to his platform with this post later that morning.

That afternoon the T-shirt got a spot on the local radio station, 1130 WFAN in Detroit.

Today, Crain’s Business Detroit profiled the shirt and Doug in a clever post.

The whole reception isn’t exactly earth-shattering, but the idea has caught on and t-shirts are being ordered rather enthusiastically.

So, I just wanted to let you guys know, you know, the people who read this blog for some reason. Thanks, and go buy a t-shirt.
