Me? Why, I'd be honored.
"Rodrick Williams Jr.'s 10-month old, 2-foot-long savannah monitor named "Kill" gets the RB some strange looks when they go for walks together."
This is the final entry of the 2009 MGoShirt Alert, a design project that allowed MgoBlog readers to vote for a design in the MGoBlogStore.
(NOTE: For all users who are currently or may one day plan to develop a design project, I would offer the following advice: a.) Beware of Photobucket, who has the near-whimsical ability to wreck your posts with little to no previous warning, and b.) if you want to build up suspense for the grand unveiling of the project winner, you might want to think about keeping the final poll results to yourself.)
SO, YES... with that being said, ladies and gentlemen, the final winning design of the 2009 MGoShirt Alert, as voted on by you, the collective MGoCommunity, is...
DAY FIFTEEN'S DESIGN -- MASCOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CLICK HERE FOR A DETAIL OF THE SHIRT GRAPHIC
This shirt is sure to be a smash hit at tailgates, alumni mixers, frat keggers, or just sitting in front of your home theater on Saturday afternoons. Wearers are advised to exercise caution while rocking the shirt in Columbus, East Lansing, State College, South Bend, Iowa City, Madison, West Lafayette, and any official conference gathering. Don't worry about getting hurt in Minneapolis... after all, it's a gopher.
Over 800 votes were tallied for the final deathmatch between our four finalists, and to the surprise of many the MASCOTS shirt garnered 44% of our tallies. In light of the weekend's events, perhaps it was Sparty missing the eyeball that made it so darn voteworthy. Final poll results can be consulted here for the curious.
|Shown here displaying the shirt is
our featured model, who we'll casually
refer to here as Richard, in an effort
to protect his anonymity.
Richard finds that this shirt goes
great with whistles, half-completed
stadium facades, and barrages of
obscenities. It's also great to wear
when cleaning up urine stains
Richard endorses the MGoShirt and
would like to add that it's a perfect
shirt for the inevitable Maize Out
that never seems to catch on.
They also go great with the
new Michigan Towels!
Me? Why, I'd be honored.
why wasn't the "Rosenberg/freep/A2 in flames" shirt included in the vote?
That photoshop of RichRod is the awesome.
I didn't vote, but this was my favorite.
And from a post of mine yesterday in case you missed it:
I think there should be a rush order on another T-shirt design for the competition. Instead of Che Guevara, I'm thinking RichRod with a sombrero ala Treasure of Sierra Madre with the tagline:
"Violations? We don't have no stinkin' violations!"
Any chance you'll have any of the finalist shirts made for the MGoBlogStore? I think all 4 were sweet and I would buy all 4. Obviously the mascot tee was the best.
and a timely joy to balance out the heavy stuff occurirng lately. Looking forward to its addition to the Mgostore.
I'll take 2!
Funny I think I was driving behind you for a while yesterday.... strange that I remembered that plate.... 'course I did a lot of driving yesterday (drove down to A^2 from Munising ) so I may have been seeing things.
I think the other three finalists need to be in the store. I realize I'm a really small sample size, but I would definitely buy the Desmond/Charles tees and I probably won't buy this one.
Agreed. I like the idea behind it, but it's not a fashion choice I would make.
The photoshop of Richard should have a curled mustache for anonymous posterity
Yeah, I'll probably buy one, not to wear to the games, but I'll happily wear it through the streets of Columbus everyday.
