I Have A Funny Feeling The Below Item Cannot Be Purchased At Texas Stadium

Posted in Fashion, Gridiron, The Marketplace at 9:39 pm by

Tonight’s Ravens/Cowboys clash marks the latter’s final game at Irving, TX’s Texas Stadium, and accordingly, I’ll pay tribute to one of the most garish, nonsensical bits of merchandise ever created.

The above tee is selling for $9.99 at the Texas supermarket chain HEB. Conspicuous by their absence are the name or logo of the football team T.O. toils for, though the popcorn obscuring his face is a rather nice touch. Considering that Owens dropped the “getcha popcorn ready” bon mot in advance of a showdown with Randy Moss the former came out on the short end of, it’s a little weird anyone considers it an effective slogan.  Then again, just because the shirt’s for sale, that doesn’t mean anyone is buying it.

    Damn, I thought it was a beach towel. To be fair, TO uses that catch phrase with “Sportscenter”-anchor like frequency, both before and since the Moss business.

    That’s some suffocating coverage from the popcorn.

    Go Ravens.
