HEY THAT’S PRETTY SNAZZY.  HOW CAN I GET ONE?

You click this link and pre-order one for $21.99.   If a certain number of you pre-order it then it gets made and shipped to you.  If we don’t hit the number, then the shirt doesn’t exist.  You will only be able to pick up this shirt for the next 21 days.

 

YOU RIPPED OFF THIS T-SHIRT SELLING MODEL FROM UNI WATCH DIDN’T YOU?

Pay attention, a good 60% of this website is a Uni Watch ripoff.  And yep, they totally inspired me.  I loved the t-shirt I got from them.  You should get one too.  In face stop reading this post and check out their t-shirt collection and buy one of theirs.

Slightly more seriously, yeah I bought a Uni Watch shirt and wore it yesterday and I really liked it.

Then this morning it snowed and I was sitting at the breakfast table and started messing round on tee-spring and made a half-ass version of what you are seeing above.  I emailed my concept to @medigaoon who is better at design than I am, and he sent this back.  We argued about colors for a while.

 

I THOUGHT YOU HATED BLUE ON BLACK?

I totally do.  However, this blog is openly capitalist and I know that the kids today like blue on black.

 

SO YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE?

Totally.  Open hypocrite sellout capitalist.  I am even considering building a mall on my side yard.  Hopefully we sell ten million of these so I can build condos too.

 

 

STOP BEING A SMARTASS, WHAT’S THE STORY?

I liked what Paul did.  Sketched a concept.  Bounced it to ‘Goon.  Decided if we sell a few and our openly capitalistic blog makes a few bucks that’s cool.  We don’t do the blog for just money but openly like money.

 

I THOUGHT YOU WERE FRIENDS WITH THE T-SHIRT GUY?

You mean Darren?  Yes.  In fact his shirts are way better than anything we ever come up with and you know that.  Please visit The 7 Line now and buy his t-shirts.

 

ARE YOU BEING A SMART ASS AGAIN?

No.  Darren’s stuff is great.  You know that.  If you look back ‘Goon and I have done one t-shirt a year usually around this time of year.

 

OK I AM GONNA GET ONE.  WHAT DO I DO?

Click here.  $21.99.

Mets Billboard guys reveal their anti-Wilpon and Katz design

MetsBillboard.com has gone live and is displaying this image.  This is the fan effort to encourage the Wilpons (and Katz) to move along.

I personally think they should have waited a week until the mainstream media wasn’t focused on Snowpocalypse, and you have no shot with the sports media all in Arizona talking to Joe Montana about vitamins or whatever the hell goes on at Radio Row.

A week from tomorrow when the NFL is done, the local NBA is irrelevant, there seems to be a ban on discussing hockey…plenty of time to get media attention.

Anyway, between that and my earlier advice about Powerpoint presentations, I’m sure the anti-Wilpon crowd loves me as much as the pro-Wilpon crowd loves me for posting this.

Wait until the word Castergine starts generating Google Alerts.  Things should be pretty interesting on 126th Street.

True New Yorkers post presentation on why baseball should oust the Wilpons

fred wilpon

I think last week’s announcement that Fred Wilpon is on the finance committee has “poked the bear” as I like to say.  There seems to me to be more anti-Wilpon talk than there had been recently.

A website using the URL True New Yorkers has posted a very lengthy very words presentation with some sort of case arguing baseball should oust the Wilpon-led ownership.

I personally found it to be too many words to read, and would encourage them to team up with someone who has good powerpoint graphic skills.  I wanted to read it but quickly got overwhelmed and moved on.

Anyway, if you would like to read it you can find it on their website.  The paragraph below is from the main page and explains their mission in their own words.

We believe that similarly, baseball must act swiftly in order to replace the Wilpons with an ownership group that has the financial strength, acumen, competence and credibility to restore the Mets as the competitive, entertaining, fan-friendly franchise that New York and Major League Baseball deserves.

Sandy Alderson annoys Mets fans (aka customers) with joke

sandy alderson @metsgm

Hahaha.  We didn’t spend any money yet again!  We will, as soon as the Madoff thing is behind us, Jason Bay and Santana contracts clear, Matt Harvey comes back, you guys buy more tickets (which I am told are up 19%).

Remember customers, if you don’t like the Ford Edsel then don’t buy an Edsel.  Eventually they will either go out of business or come out with a Mustang.
