mets-shirt.jpgI’m not sure who’s responsible for this. I don’t know if it was a Mets employee or someone from MLB. But if the Mets fail to hold onto their 2.5 game lead over Philadelphia, I think this becomes the proof that may actually convince me of the existence of a god, and that he/she/it has a sense of humor.

That’s right, Mets fans! You can purchase your 2007 Mets NL East Championship T-Shirt right now before it actually happens! Because here in NYC, if you’re not ahead of the fashion trend, then you’re treated like a piece of crap (as a caveat to this rule, if the Phillies overtake the Mets, then the “ironically historical” nature of this shirt will inevitably become chic among the hipsters of the Lower East Side – or the “LES” of Manhattan and Williamsburg – or “Billysburg” – in Brooklyn. It’s just the way it is.).

Hat tip to MetsBlog for their post.

    Some athletes go for hyperbaric chambers. David Ortiz relies on his Clutch Catsuit.

  4. Sarah Green says:

    Unable to get Halle Berry to reprise her role in the 2004 box office bomb “Catwoman,” producers had to settle for David Ortiz in the sequel. Reached for comment, Ortiz said he thought the contract was for a really long VitaminWater commercial.

  5. His detractors said that he had lost the touch. The magic. The aura.

    But David Ortiz stood up proudly in this strong, rubbery bodysuit made of baby whaleskin and said, “Not today, my friend. Not today”. And wouldn’t you know it? The Red Sox won that day.

    The bodysuit explains how. The high-waisted front and deeply vented, flared back are, of course, pretty dashing looking in society, but entirely functional when you’re leaping into the arms of your teammates. It’s relaxed, but just a little dressy so it can easily double as evening wear for this clutch cad.

    Color: Black. Men’s sizes 38 to 48.
    Only at

  6. I think these shirts are generally donated to third world countries if they aren’t used.

    That’s why the Mets are slipping. Think of the children!
