Boomer T-Shirts!
 
Inspired by the brilliant folks behind the Coyote's bench in tonight's game (2/25) I bring you the Boomer T-Shirt!

I'm making this post to gauge interest and decide on the text to be on the shirt.

Price would probably be around $20 but could get cheaper depending on how many orders were made.

Edit: I forgot the simple "Would you buy one?" yes/no poll. Could a mod add it? Thanks

This Mascot was not given a fair shake, not saying I'm sure about him but based on the history of Priest and Howson, the architects of patience, I was shocked they pulled this mascot so fast...


I'm mixed, but this is what I can say, the new CBJ thirds rule.

Why not just do cafe press?

I'd wear it...but without either wording.

Cafe press was exactly what I was thinking although it is a bit more expensive on a per shirt basis.

They will sell better than these.

Actually those are kind of cute.



Cute might not be the right word.

What about "Boomer's Battallion," and on the back the picture of the Jacket's guardian where all his cannons have been replaced by mini-boomers?

Love it! Unfortunately the more colors you add the more expensive the shirts get. I'll look into getting some shirts up on cafe press tonight if I don't do anything else.

boomer makes a good cult mascot - something that is rarely seen and only in interesting places.

Wording under Boomer ideas:
- Jackets Battalion
- Believe
- He shoots, we've scored!
- I'm Excited for the Playoffs
- Boomer Army

I'd like to know what our record is sans-Boomer. Maybe that's who we need to blame for our ****** run in December.

Although, I really miss Boomer. Possibly the best mascot in history.

Hate to spoil the fun but those shirts feature a trademarked logo on them

How did the couple behind the bench tonight get theirs?? That's the burning question.

Probably iron ons or custom designs. Can't get in trouble for using a trademarked logo if only two are ever made for yourself and no money is made.

I would be more than happy to make a "donation" :):):) to your bank account in exchange for one of your "private stash" T-shirts.

I understand that shipping may not be included. I do live 2,500 miles away.

"Boomer's Battallion" for me!

Boomer is perhaps the greatest thing to ever happen to CBJ and it hurts me that he's gone everyday.

I would buy MULTIPLE shirts of this, no joke.

llama 02-26-2011 10:18 AM

I think half my posts on this board are about Boomer so of course I would be in. I think maybe "Who's excited for the playoffs?" Also quick plug but this guy is right here in Columbus on yearling road if no one else makes one or finds some boomer swag I am calling him to make me some http://www.customshirts.com

I think it has to do with the sophomoric snickering from folks who equate any cylindrical shape as phallic. I'm not saying Boomer was that great of a mascot but, jeez, folks, get out of middle school.

"Boom City Army" :sarcasm:

JACKETfan 02-26-2011 01:07 PM

"Team Boomer" is another good caption.

Boomer! (with an !) is better than plain Boomer, imho.

Hope you have a high resolution version of the graphic, otherwise might look like crap on the tshirt.

I'd be all for it but usually with the design-it-yourself websites the t-shirts themselves are atrocious. AA all the way

kidAcbj 02-27-2011 08:52 AM

you probably should make an abstracted version of it unless you got permission from the CBJ, like the recent Baron Davis Cleveland shirts. Jut sayin.
