"The guerrilla fighter needs full help from the people
of the area. This is an indispensable condition."
--Ernesto Che Guevara
This is the thirteenth entry of the 2009 MGoShirt Alert, a design project that will enable MgoBlog readers to vote for upcoming designs in the new MGoBlogStore.
Last night, pretty much by accident, I produced the single best t-shirt design of the entire series. And of course, I immediately knew it was a foregone conclusion that this shirt could never see the light of day, for fear of legitimate legal action from the entire state of Ohio. The kind of shirt that, in the case you were caught wearing it in Columbus, would find your corpse dragged through the streets. By six-year olds. Who would later be acquitted for their acts and instead hailed as patriots. And given the keys to the city. By Jim Tressel.
So instead, I'll give you this shirt, originally submitted during the Harmon shirt post by our friend MCalibur:
Che Guevara and Rich Rodriguez have a lot in common. Both came from humble beginnings. Both became well-educated and powerful motivators of people. Both had a son named Rhett and a super-blond wife named Rita.
Okay, maybe not the last bit, but there are certainly similarities. Let's hope they stop there-- I doubt that Coach Rod wishes to be executed by the Bolivian government and strapped to the skids of a helicopter like a hunter's trophy.
Time to vote. What do you guys think?

***** Five Stars: Coach Rod is the single best head coach we've ever had.
**** Four Stars: Great guy-- but no one holds a candle to Bo.
*** Three Stars: I'd put him just behind Fritz Crisler in the pecking order.
** Two Stars: Bump Elliot deserves more praise than this Rodriguez guy.
* One Star: Ack-- I'm registering a firecoachrod.com URL as we speak.
VOTING UPDATE: We're proud to announce that we're moving up the final voting to Friday, so you'll be able to vote on the MGoShirt finalists over the entire weekend-- and the winning design will be officially rolled out on Monday. With that being said, I originally said we'd do 15 shirts-- I still can, but I'd have to run another vote later in the day either today or tomorrow. Is that cool with all of you, or should we just go with fourteen shirts and be done with it? Talk to me MGoBlog...
Either way, tomorrow I'm going to be rolling out some very specific artwork that I probably enjoyed creating more than any other design. See you then for the final editions of MGoShirt Alert!
