So I submitted a away jersey design to UM and I got this back..

Yo Shredder,
This is your main man! Brando! We love the new jersey concept for the away jersey. We are willing to offer you a multi hundred dollar deal to use your design and for Midnight Maize to be the official provider for all UM athletic's. The only thing we request changed in the jersey is that we have XFL/1970s style names plates on the back, under the numbers. Please reply in a fast manor and our people will contact your people(you).

Let us know man,
The A(athletic)D(Duder)
David Brandon



So pick up that phone and order now!... I am standing by!

Another step in the evolution of Shreder's paint jobs.  Someone will steal you from your midnight job if you aren't careful.

Best MGoBlog post in quite a while.

But why are the shirts still tagged by Adidas? Would you subcontract to them? Midnight Maize the big brother to Adidas - I like it.

"Please reply in a fast manor and our people will contact your people(you)."

Fascinating.  I always thought that the best business correspondence was done in a slow skyscraper, but this method intrigues me.  You done changed the game.

Although I must say, since looking at these designs I am left with a distinct metallic taste in my mouth, and can no longer see certain orange objects in the room.

Can't have it all, I guess.

This headline scared me for a second.  I had flashbacks to the sweatshop dispute of a decade ago that temporarily left us high and dry.
