For most of the last century winning a World Series seemed like an insurmountable challenge for Red Sox Nation. After a change in ownership and management luck is now on their side, as the Red Sox won their second World Series since 2004. The 2007 Red Sox simply outgunned the young and overachieving Colorado Rockies. Celebrate their victory with the official 2007 Red Sox World Series Winner’s T-Shirt.

Ask me about my ability to evade questions.
These are a few of the user submitted slogans I liked and upvoted at Gawker Shop user submission page. Hopefully some of these will make it onto actual shirts.
As I previously documented, Gawker Media runs a t-shirt shop along with their core interests in the blog medium. Sounds like a good combination – clever slogan tees have a wide appeal, and are exposed to lots of eyeballs from the blogs. Come to think of it, one of the biggest t-shirt vendors of them all began as an offshoot of College Humor.
I don’t know about you, but I have a healthy curiosity toward the Brits. They speak the same language as we do (English), play the same sport (football), and sell/wear the same type of raunchy slogan tees. Of course their English doesn’t quite sound like our own, football is an altogether different sport, and their shock-jerseys are the same but different in an alternate reality/parallel universe sort of way.
UPDATE: It isn’t a major surprise, but the site where these shirts were being sold is now offline.
Should you really be surprised to see the big boys take advantage of the latest internet meme by printing it on their latest release? I don’t think so, and it also should not come as a surprise to see everyone else jump on the bandwagon with their own version of “Don’t Tase Me Bro”, including some blatant ripoffs (Gatortased notwithstanding). So this begs the question, is there anyone out there making a “Don’t resist arrest, bro” t-shirt? Meh.
Isn’t it ironic that the two highest profile online t-shirt shops couldn’t be more different from each other? Threadless is run by the still-idealistic twenty somethings who refuse corporate take over bids and find it in their hearts to sell their innocence and their shirts for $10 a pop. T-Shirt Hell, on the other hand, gets in the news by pushing the limit of free speech while making seriously offensive drags.
On your left is Green Party by T-Shirt Hell, a real party that’s twice the pun and green in color only. The shirt on the right is Threadless’ reprint of Tom Burns’ Communist Party, a true example of Americana.
