The Family Clothesline – a popular clothing store in State College, Pennsylvania – has pulled off a unique feat in the form of one simple t-shirt.
The shop featuring popular Penn State clothing not only was able to design a shirt that praised its home team coaching legend Joe Paterno, but also one that managed to poke fun at Jim Tressel, Ohio State football and the new Big Ten conference division names.
That’s four messages meshed into one 50/50 cotton-poly blend – not too shabby.
The t-shirt design is simple, yet packed with a solid jab, clearly delivering its punch – as it’s listed among the Family Clothesline’s top sellers on the website’s home page.
Certainly, the blue and white clad fans must love it, as the Nittany Lions – along with the rest of the Big Ten conference – have been Tressel’s punching bag in Big Ten football for years.
But it also delivered a statement that reached out as far as Columbus itself, as recently, The Family Clothesline (and the shirt) was featured in Columbus Business First.
While the faithful Buckeyes may turn the other cheek, the shirt clearly points out the black cloud that is hanging over Ohio State football, and the fact that the once clean-cut and proper looking Tressel is far from that – and more trouble could be on the way, via the NCAA.
As for the shirt, here it is (below). The price is listed as $12.99 – $13.99 and comes in either navy blue or white. For the free pub, THE WIFE and I certainly wouldn’t complain if a few were tossed in our direction. Wink, nudge.
