Say somethin' nice

No account?

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.

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.

staffell on Nov 29, 2010 at 09:05:02

Generic was exacty the term I was going to use.

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.

maybe the fact that it's so generic is what makes it cool. SPORTS!

Ferdinand_Marin on Nov 29, 2010 at 08:09:17

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.

@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 thinkin

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.

I would wear that hoodie to death. Christmas present, Aled?

mullmuggins on Nov 29, 2010 at 05:06:58

I think this is great. Definitely agree with Staffell that it's one of the best type tees they've printed. Nice one!
