For our next entry, I am proud to recall the words of Rudyard Kipling. The son of a transplanted British architect teaching in Bombay, ol' Rud traveled the world before settling down in Vermont, of all places. He did pass through current-day Big Ten country in 1889, although there is no record of him stopping in Ann Arbor for an American football match.
Either way, some hundred years later his work caught the eye of one Lloyd H. Carr, with this particular line becoming something of a catch phrase for the defense. I'm sure there's plenty of John Spyteks and Zach Kaufmans out there that still hear this line in their sleep. And dream of killing quarterbacks.
For the eyes, they are part of a logo set I designed over a year ago, and actually just submitted it for consideration in another minor league hockey contest. I struggled with the idea of giving this one out because it has personal value to me-- it's currently my desktop wallpaper as I type this-- but it just seemed to best match the attitude and swagger of this shirt. I played around with a tackling sled in its place, but it didn't have the same effect.
So, time to vote! What do you guys think?

* One Star: Anyone have any broccoli?
Yesterday some of you asked if I have a portfolio, and YES, I have two in fact-- one for branding and design, and another for hand-drawn illustration. Now, are they currently online?? No. I've built a personal Flash site, and it's pretty much ready to go... but I've since decided to link my branding work out to an independent Six Zero Branding site, and have opted to wait and launch them together. Sorry... I am involved with a few hockey design sites such as Puckdrawn and Icethetics if anyone cares. Place your votes, ladies and gentlemen, and feel free to add any comments below! For tomorrow's shirt I'll be digging deep into the archives for an old take on a new phrase. See you then for another exciting round of – MGoShirt Alert!!
