    Thumbs up "WTF GRILLI" t-shirt




    I mentioned during one of the game threads that I was going to be making a "WTF GRILLI" shirt and wearing it to yesterday's game. Pictures were requested, and as promised - here they are. Apparently I just missed Grilli watching batting practice (insert joke here) because one of the fans told me that he would've loved to see his reaction to my shirt. I got stopped more times than I could count by people in the concourse and around the park to tell me how much they LOVED my shirt. I will definitely be wearing it to future games, no matter how his performance has been.

    You should check out the game thread, "WTF _____?" when somebody screws the pooch is quickly catching on.

    FYI, I just watched the Reno 911 movie yesterday and Dangle says "WTF Man?" after both accidents in the parking garage. I think that's why I like the shirt so much.

    We should make a promotional day out of it. You know like how the Pistons have thunder sticks in all of the seats during the playoffs. We should put your shirt on all of the 41,700 seats

    doesn't that piece of crap Grilli have a myspace page? If so, you have to get a picture of the shirt on there.

    I joked about mass producing them after the reaction I got from everyone at the game last night. All I did was go to a craft store, buy a cheap t-shirt and some orange iron-on letters. I think the grand total was $4.

    I'll be really happy when the Tigers release Grilli. Then they can win 100 + games.

    I should have guessed it would be a purple shirt....

    Awesome.. I was lookin' to spot it on TV last night. It was too bad you had to witness such a BS game..

    I encourage the mass production of this t-shirt and would be HAPPY to be responsible for the distribution in Canada... ANYTHING to promote the sub-mediocrity of JG.
    Retired. Thanks for the entertainment.

    Thanks for posting the pictures-that's great!

    You probably could sell them for 15-20 dollars, too.

    You really should go making them. Hit up Ebay and sell them. Or I know alot of people on here would order them. Then there can be PW shirts all over.

    Would it ruin the fun if I remind people that purple's heart is spoken for?

    I was thinking that somebody had an avatar for a while that had Grilli's name with a bar over it, as in "No Grilli." Was it Biff? I wouldn't mind seeing that on a t-shirt, either.

    Kind of like the no-smoking sign? Instead of a picture of a cigarette, you could just put his name in there.

    A lot of us thought that for a large part of last season..I have a feeling he's not going anywhere.

    I'd really like to see the incriminating photos he has of DD/Ilitch/Leyland.
