I remember it well. I was 16, right at the start of my senior year of high school, and my friends and I drove down to Veterans Stadium to watch the Phillies play the Reds. It may actually have been the first time I went to a Phillies game unaccompanied by my elders.
Despite years of chronicling the unique t-shirt culture on the Wildwood Boardwalk in New Jersey, I’ve never really asked anyone on the boards why they buy what they buy when it comes to wonderfully bad t-shirts. Until now.
It’s not a proper summer until I visit Wildwood.
Deadspin readers, to go by my inbox, agree on very few things, but agree on them strongly. Dogs, the readers say, are good; each successive editor-in-chief has done more to ruin the site than the last; the St. Louis Cardinals can go to hell; and we should sell a “Go fuck yourself” shirt.
In case you momentarily forgot which website you were reading, let me say right here up at the top that I am not a textile expert. I’m actually not even particularly fashionable.

A Texas high school forced its football team to get rid of T-shirts with the slogan, "Shhhhhhh[,] just let it happen," because we all know what the fuck they were implying.

Reader Corey wrote in and said he made this shirt for Falcons running back Jacquizz Rodgers while Quizz was in college. It is the first known display of personality shown by a Falcons player in the Mike Smith era. I feel like I know this team so much better now.
I think it's entirely reasonable for people to disagree on the proper way to commemorate a complex tragedy like that of Jovan Belcher, who killed his girlfriend before killing himself. Of those who argued for the Chiefs game going on as scheduled because football provides a distraction from the awful parts of life,…
Sports are cool. Shirts are also cool. In the photo above, you can see couple of sports shirts. Cool. Do you know any shirts like that? Put them in the discussion below, please.
Now even the Mets' ownership is laughing at the Mets. These T-shirts were placed in the lockers of each Mets player yesterday at the direction of Jeff Wilpon, the team's chief operation officer. The "U" logo is supposed to represent Underdog, the animated superhero from the 1960s, and the shirts are meant to serve as…
The school's compliance office has issued cease and desist notifications—with a great headline, by the way—to the makers of several really cool T-shirts, even though the shirts don't mention LSU or Tyrann Mathieu by name. The reason?
