You want your Thorny shirts? I made some.
And they’re not going anywhere.
I’ve never made a Zazzle store before but hey, The Bloggess uses it so it has to be cool. And look, I know they’re not the most creative tees ever. I’m a musician, people, not a graphic designer. But I assure you these shirts sound awesome.
Backstory: first the Portland Thorns’ own “Feelin’ Thorny” shirts were pulled; then all the orders for WoSoShirtCo‘s “Me So Thorny” tees were cancelled. What’s next? Are people going to complain if fans show up at Thorns games wearing Lady GayGay shirts? Or hoodies that advertise Captain Morgan Rum? Kids shouldn’t drink, y’know. What about a Slipknot concert tee? Or Call of Duty? Everyone knows video games cause real-world violence. What about poor Tinky Winky?! Censorship is a slippery slope, my friends.
I feel badly for the Thorns and WoSoShirtCo. A vocal minority who feel they know what’s best for the Whole Wide World pressured those two companies to kill cool products.
That won’t happen here. THORNDOGS merch is here to stay. And guess what? Any money I make on these (ridiculously overpriced) shirts will go to charity*.
Know who gets to decide which shirts you can buy?
So wear ‘em if you got ‘em, and I’ll see you at the games**.
