"I want a newwww drug. One that won't make is sick...."
Oh, sorry, wrong Sports. ;]
Canceled slogan that had 8% like it...there's hope for EVERYONE!
no way hahah
It probably got 8% as voters can't visualize the outcome from reading the text alone. This has turned out pretty sweet imo
one word slogan?? wtf?
i dun get it... O__O
Congrats on the win, but this is an extremely lame print considering all the amazing slogans there are to choose from.
Is this a joke?
Honestly, I think it looks alright and it's not a bad tee. Excellent typography and obv. suitable colour pick.
I know your supposed to say something nice here, but this seems like a bit of a kick in the teeth to the sloganeers who have been doing 365 blogs and suchlike.
(That was my something nice, for the sloganeers).
Congrats to the person who entered the slogan anyway!
-college football player? any relation to Wilson sports?
I don't understand this. Is this an in-joke that only threadless found funny?
Is it just me or is this totally random lol
'Hobbies!' by Rossmat
A shirt advocating my appreciation of, and participation in, various sporting activities? Well fuck yeah.
This is classic. I'm buying the tee right now actually. Any sports lover will appreciate this shirt
I like it. it reminds me of Tim and Eric. I'd buy right now if I had the cash to spare.
@rossmatt - I don't think this is lame in the slightest. On the contrary, this is one of the best typetees threadless have ever printed IMO. What makes this lame for you?
I see what you did there arzie!
I don't think it looks bad on a T, I just don't really understand why threadless decided to print this above a lot of witty or hilarious other slogans, especially because of this: of 24 votes, 8% like it. Usually I find that the type tee's 'ooze' threadless vibes, and this one doesn't to me.
Still, congrats on the win Matt :)
must be a joke
in italy we call it mafia
I think this is great. Definitely agree with Staffell that it's one of the best type tees they've printed. Nice one!
I would wear that hoodie to death. Christmas present, Aled?
I like this especially because a lot of people don't get the joke, and better yet are getting upset that it got picked over "good slogans" lolol definitely buying this one.
@staffell so can you please explain it? cause it doesn't make any sense to me either. not a slogan, just a word. what am i missing here? any hidden reference or something?
you're over thinking it
well, i'm very curious to hear what makes you like it, tesco.
maybe you can make me see something i can't by myself.
it just looks to me like a generic tee and i don't get why some
people find it brilliant.
maybe the fact that it's so generic is what makes it cool. SPORTS!
This is actually a topic that has been touched on and talked about...the INFAMOUS "one word slogan"!
I have tried a couple, but I obviously fell short of THIS GEM. The reason this is good will be slightly different for everyone, but, I think it is MEANT to be a sarcastic jab at sports enthusiasts that proudly support their team by what shirt they wear...
It's kind of been done before, as I have a shirt that says "COLLEGE". Same concept.
Generic was exacty the term I was going to use.
Yes, this is definitely a play on words...and design! It's not just WHAT the tee says, but HOW it is displayed. This type treatment is heavily used as a generic design for sports teams everywhere. It works great here because it's a generic word with a generic design, but it's chock-full of playful sarcasm. That's my take, anyway.
From a linguistic standpoint, the word 'sport' is an interesting one, because it can be Botha singular noun and a collective noun AND there is also a plural, sports, as demonstrated here. That has no bearing on the appeal of this shirt, just an observation.
Botha = both a
hmmm.... finally i can see it. and i must admit that it is indeed clever.
i've seen a design from another website that says "80th race for a cure for something" (don't remember the exact words), a generic version of those racing t-shirts. i think it's more or less the same concept, even though on this later case, the irony is more heavily evident.
You're talking about Think of the Children by bootsboots. Yes, it is very much on the same level, yet the simplicity of this one makes is superior. I hate the design of the other one too, looks very amateurish.
Another "Out of Left Field" <small>get it, sports analogy</small> design from threadless. The more I look at it the more I like it. As a hardcore sloganeer I'm a little miffed but that's just selfishness. Slogans like these will never score well because they can't be visualized on a shirt so it's up to threadless to say "Hey, this would be really cool!"
Now what I wonder is how did a possibly 5 year old slogan from someone that appears to not have been around threadless for years get found?
Is this tribute to Tim and Eric's sketch of Sports!?
Is this a reference to the 1983 hit album by Huey Lewis and the News?
@ meatnerdr well played
@donkeypunch thank you :D
see... headbands ARE in style
Love it. This design is very analogous to the Animal House "College" shirt, where its generic nature reflects the tepid blandness of specific sports and college tee shirts. Which is probably an opinion shared mostly by the tee shirt connoisseurs on this site, and not the folks who actually wear Notre Dame or Yankees shirts with real sincerity.
