The following is from a front page post, but I wanted to create a message board thread, too, to assist with ideas:

There was a stretch a couple weeks ago where I couldn't go a day without a handful of readers suggesting that we have a Bleacher Nation shirt (or shirts). It's something I've hoped to do for a while, but I wanted to make sure the time was right. I was flattered by your comments.
So, given your requests, and the upcoming turn of the calendar (with it bringing the Cubs Convention), I thought it was time to start putting the shirt together.


Here's the gist: I'd prefer to have just one shirt, which would be "the" 2012 Bleacher Nation shirt. I envision a single-color shirt with a slogan or picture or something simple on the front, with "Bleacher Nation 2012" underneath it (or something like that - I'm truly open to any kind of idea). The idea is to have a shirt that is both representative of the site, as well as simple enough that you'd actually, like, wear it around.


I'd love your thoughts/ideas/suggestions. Ideally, we'd get enough solid ideas that we could put them up for a vote, and then I'd put that shirt together.


If that method doesn't work out, I can work with my buddy (Unholy Cows) to put something together. Either way, we'll have a shirt.
So, if you've got ideas, please throw them out there. Do it in the comments here, and I've also added a Message Board thread on which you can add your suggestions (in case this post gets buried before enough suggestions are made).

I'm certain I'd buy a t-shirt but I'd really like to have a BN hoodie to wear around on these cold winter days.

As for design, I really think it should be the BN logo at the top of the page. Simple, reconziable and a conversation starter if anyone ask. Maybe with a simple tag line. I'm always a believer that simple is better but for a limited edition T humor is always the best route.

So here's a few ideas for tag lines:
  • "Quade Free Since November 2011"
  • "Short and Informative for 2012" Under the classic BN logo
  • "These are not my feet"
  • "Suck it Washington Post"
  • "MichiganGoat is my Bitch"

I second the hoodie idea. The shirt should have something to do with logo on the top of the site. You could change the logo every year to go with the shirt.

LOVE everything about the site; first time commenting. Definitely sign me up for a shirt. I agree with the “American Apparel” tee – blue with red letters. On the front: “Bleacher Nation 2012″. On the back: “The RIGHT side of the rivalry…”

I would buy a "Quade (or Hendry) Free Since November 2011" shirt, regardless of its affiliation with this site

Have an epstein Jersey 12 peeing on a soriano contract. With the caption "Bold changes are on the way."
