    Huh. Interesting. I have the feeling I'll be taking you up on that offer, Ben. I have absolutely no issue with creating U of M stuff, I just don't know (or care) enough about college sports (and the U of M) to even start coming up with ideas for apparel. I went to school in California and the only sport I followed at all was baseball (a natural given my interest in baseball and the fact that I went to Cal State Long Beach).

    I think we'd be able to sell that shirt to every single person in Canada.

    Seriously, you used to recruit for the football team? Under which coach(s)? I'm a big Gopher buff, particularly football and basketball.

    Do you belong to the Gopherhole by any chance?

    I did campus tours for recruits under Coach Mason after I couldn't play anymore. Basically, they'd come to a weekend to do their official campus visit, and I would do the campus tour portion of the day.

    I do not belong to Gopherhole...just too many message boards (about 3 Braves ones, two minor league baseball ones, Twins Daily, and roughly 60-75 fantasy leagues each year among baseball, football, basketball, and March Madness pools).

    Yeah...and somehow keep up two jobs, help with the family farm, run the youth ministry at the church, and find time enough to make cable and Netflix worthwhile things in my life. I have a feeling that if things progress, I may have an objection from a future Mrs.

    I would be in for a Gophers shirt partly because I like colors (purple/yellow really doesn't work as an example) and despite not going there I've always felt connected to the real UofM (10 yrs in Michigan). Using Ben's theme something like 'We were good before' or 'We're good at sports you don't like/care about' might work.

    My order for 6 shirts is in.

    I didn't mention it earlier but I'm not a fan of either TWolves shirt. I'm not a big fan of individual player shirts as much as cool team designs especially if they aren't obvious (the lake show).

    You're pretty generous about not including Jason Marquis. I'm a little surprised. Another guy that could go on this is Clete Thomas.

    DC used to have a Thome shirt that read "600 Naturally".

    We should do a Butera one that reads ".500(OPS) Naturally".
    I thought you would have said Butera BA .200 Naturally.

    So what's everyone think of the extremely lightweight Lake Show T-shirt material? I like the appearance but I'm not sure if there is enough shirt there to last for awhile. The red '91 T-shirt material feels perfect.

    The Lake Show shirt is much higher quality, actually. It's lightweight but it's of a very high-quality blend that won't shrink and should hold up well over time.

    One of the reasons why DC's shirts are a little more expensive is because we don't print most shirts on low-quality fabric. The red 1991 shirt is of a mid-quality... Don't let the weight of the shirt influence how your perceive its quality. I own a few shirts made of similar fabric to the Lake Show and they have held up very well... Far better than my heavier, lower quality t-shirts.

    Hey, once you guys are sold out on certain sizes, do you ever decide to do another run?

    It depends on the shirt and popularity. We've done two runs of the Lake Show and 2-3 runs of the 1991 shirt. We'll probably be doing another run of 1991 shirts in the coming weeks... We're still talking it over.
