The Slice

Wednesday Slice question

I read somewhere that not long ago a chain of apparel stores came out with a sports sweatshirt that included an astonishing number of mistakes.

Reportedly, in saluting some long-ago football championship, it confused the American Football Conference with the old American Football League. And it referred to the Houston Texans in a context in which either the Dallas Texans (old AFL) or Houston Oilers (AFL then NFL and now in Tennessee as the Titans) would have been closer to correct. I think there were other errors, too.

But if you aren't obligated to get things right, coming up with text for commemorative sports sweathsirts could be sort of fun.

Just imagine.

"Spokane Canaries: 1916 Stanley Cup Champions"

"4ever Zags: 2002 NCAA Final Four"

"Cougs Threepeat: WSU Rose Bowl Wins -- 1997-1998-1999"

"Spokane Indians: AAA Champs 2005"

And so on.

So here's the question.

If you were not bound by the restrictions of reality, what would like to see on a sports shirt?
