So I was watching the Mets game and they teased a pretty nice looking Free Shirt Friday tee which was something something Pete Alonso and his shadow looking like a Polar Bear and the back says Polar Bear 20. I would show it to you, but the people who made the shirt and commercial apparently haven’t shown it to their own web team yet…
Anyway, it’s a nice looking shirt and I mentioned that on twitter. IT WAS A POSITIVE COMMENT because you guys know I am super-positive when it comes to the Mets.
Then before I knew it, @mediagoon was chiming in that the design looked similar to something he had seen before…then the t-shirt guy chimed in….then Employees of the Mets got mad at the implied vibe that maybe the design wasn’t original….I dunno man I JUST LIKED THE SHIRT.
Joe’s design is great — it is also not “stolen”. There is a long internal process going through designs for FSF. Keith you are in a position more than others to ask about this if curious.

I am siding with the Mets because their design does not have the letter F on it. #TeamMets!!!!
Clearly we are going to have to take this case to T-SHIRT COURT, a new series on SNY where you have to convince Judge Meenan that your t-shirt is worthy, properly licensed, and good looking. I’d watch that.
UPDATE: Dave sent me the t-shirt that I liked. I just wanted to like a t-shirt.
I caught a typo in which I had typed “Free Short Friday” – clearly the Mets need to start giving away shorts!
Oh yeah – new followers, this is what I do. You’ll hate it eventually.
