I was at the BLOHARDS meeting yesterday (more on that in the next post), when I saw the newest BLOHARDS shirt was on sale, and I had to grab one. It's called "got rings lately?" It looks great, all in blue, and it's the perfect response to those "got rings" shirts the Yankees fans put out in 2005 after the Red Sox won the World Series in 2004. And the words on the back of the shirt are just priceless:
We've been together for a long time now, and it's been great. Really. A team couldn't ask for a better rival.
But lately, something changed. 3 consecutive ALDS folds? That choke in 2004? No championships this millennium? It's like your heart's not in it anymore.
So...maybe we should start seeing other teams. Of course it's sad, but it's for the best. You and the Orioles are going to be one cute couple.
And if you ever get your act together? We'll leave the lights on for you at Fenway Park.
God bless those BLOHARDS. If you'd like to get a shirt, you can get it for $15, so go the BLOHARDS site for more information. All proceeds from the shirt benefit the Jimmy Fund.
