The people who host Gamenight on ESPN Radio¬† were talking smack last night as to why the ChiSox decided to run a full-blown campaign to get A.J. Pierzynksi to the All-Star game. In case you didn’t notice, it worked.punch me out for wasting money!

“The White Sox should be ashamed” one dude said. Well, I’m telling you who SHOULD be ashamed, all those fans forking over $22 bucks for a cotton T-Shirt!

I received an email promoting this “exclusive offer” from the Sox Pride Club I belong to. Apparently, only members of the ChiSox fan club get a chance to buy the shirts, and considering that I (and however many of us are out there) am dumb enough to waste my money on a fanclub that gets me a plastic card, some desktop backgrounds and a “chance” to buy more crap, I’m not surprised they are taking me for a fool.

” I Punched A.J.” T-Shirts

How many times did you “Punch A.J.” for the final spot in the American League All-Star Roster? Now that he’s won, take advantage of this exclusive offer only for Sox Pride Club members. Buy an “I Punched A.J.” t-shirt now for only $21.95 (includes fees and shipping & handliing). Maximum of five t-shirts per Sox Pride Member. T-shirts available in extra-large only.

Besides, the shirt is fugly! Although, it wouldn’t look half-bad if I wear it with my 1959 World Series Cooperstown ChiSox hat…

(In all fairness, the Pride Club gives you more than what I was ranting about, see here )
