Hello, all my maize and blue friends. So, to my surprise, the sun actually still did rise this morning after that heartbreaking loss, and it appears that life will indeed go on. I hate it when wives are so... right.
As devastating as the loss was, I got to experience something pretty, well, unique yesterday. As you all know, yesterday one of the most courageous people I've ever come into contact with was honored at the game. Yes, Phil Brabbs was an honorary captain and it sounds like the tailgate was a huge success. I'm hoping he sold tons of the new KICK T-SHIRT, and if you didn't get one by all means ORDER ONE RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW! I actually started working on that shirt on the floor of my living room the day after the UConn win.
But this is where it gets interesting. As miserable as it was to pour through all of the available information about the game last night, I came upon something that, quite simply, blew me away. One of my all-time favorite Wolverines was at the game yesterday, He Who Kills People. #56. LaMarr Woodley. Face painted, one of the regular joes, a true fan, etc. And there he was... wearing a shirt I designed. Gotta tell you all, it was a pretty special feeling to see him sporting THE KICK shirt on Phil's behalf in the official site's photo gallery.
I'm just wondering if anyone has come across a better online shot of him sporting 'The Kick' shirt yesterday, or perhaps took such a photo yourself. I'd really appreciate anything that clearly displays LaMarr and the shirt in plain sight, and it will likely find a treasured spot in my portfolio along with the design itself.
If anyone can find something, please post the link here, or if you have a personal picture, let me know and I'd be willing to pay for it. Thanks again everyone. REALLY wish I could have been there yesterday!
We'll move on. Hawkeyes in six days, boys. Let's put it past us. GO BLUE.
