Before you think, “Oh Chris, you mispelled canon, you’re an idiot” you can go ahead and SHUT YOUR FACE.
Chew on this. I meant “caNon” not caNNon in the title to emphasize the art involved (You know, like Pachabel’s Canon..?) instead of referring to a dual-purpose hotdog launcher-tshirt cannon. Although I will readily admit that the hotdog launcher is like the #8 innovation of the 2000’s. Almost as sweet as the concept of the Tacocopter, which is still the pinnacle of human innovation.
Ok that’s out of the way..
So I was at the gym a few nights ago and I had a gym buddy observe, “You know, I’ve always wondered why all your shirts have a 4 on them.”
“Well that’s my number. I mean, it’s just for when I am playing on some sort of team.” I respond.
He makes a confused face, “How many teams are you on?!”
And then I thought about it. You know – I actually have a ton of gym shirts, like at least 30 – from intramurals, volunteering, Ann Arbor Soccer League, or random one-time events. And any time I get a choice, I have my #4 on the back. This brought me back to thinking about shirts that I’ve designed and got me nostalgic. So I picked a few of my favorites off Facebook. To qualify for these pictures, someone actually has to be wearing the shirt.
In no particular order..
Ok ok. I didn’t design the dodgeball shirt. I just wanted a picture of me with my buddy in an alligator suit (Yes, L, he has made a few cameos in previous Providence-based posts, but I’m not telling you which one he is).
PPS. Don’t unsubscribe though.
