Okay, we’ve talked about doing t-shirts for a while, but we’ve never come up with a good idea that would work. So, we need your help.

We’re thinking the shirts will be red, with a Redleg Nation logo, but we need some witty phrase or slogan to go on the back. That’s where you come in.

Let’s hear your suggestions for something to put on the back of the shirt. Preferably, it should be something that would make you laugh if you were walking behind someone at GAB and read it on their back. (In the alternative, feel free to submit a proposed mock-up of the shirt, if you want to go that far).

We’ll give a free t-shirt to the person who comes up with the slogan that gets selected (whenever we actually get the shirts printed). We are hoping to set up a Redleg Nation get-together at Great American Ballpark later this season, and we’d like to have these printed up well before that.

Okay, get to work….

    Problem I see with a dusty quote (while humorous) is it will be out-dated at some point, and it’s probably a little too inside for an average person to get. Then again, who really cares about that!

    I’m a Top 25 Commenter at RedlegNation.com. And yes, I do have a life.

    Any GG line would work for this guy, but Y-City’s “Ask me about the George Grande Drinking Game” is def the way to go if you ask me. If no GG on the back then “SAVE CHUCK!!” will work.

    Sidenote: We really do have to get everyones input on a real GG Drinking Game. I think response for it would be great. 😀

    And EkYReds suggestion of GG’s mug on the back of the shirt would be great as well.

    I’m a big fan of Chris Sabo’s Goggles’ unofficial 2009 slogan: “It’s probably going to happen (maybe).” Any chance of an epic team up?

    Nick in Virginia, can you find your way to Pound?

    I reguarly pound my head against the wall or desk and am frequently told to go pound sand, but, no, I can’t find my way to Pound. In fact, I’m ashamed to admit, I can’t remember being much further southwest than Salem. I’m close to Richmond.

    If you experience epileptic seizures or heart attacks during Red’s games, Redleg Nation may be right for you, if you have trouble with Dusty syndrome, corey patterson-aitis, call your doctor before using Red Leg Nation.

    Side Effects- You may experience bladder problems, headaches, anger, and the possibility of a man crush on Joey Votto…

    If Marge Schott and Marty Brennaman had a baby…..this is what it would look like.

    I kind of like Creating HAVOC since 2005. But yeah, that might not resonate after the Dusty era.

    I spent all day on redlegnation.com and all I got was this lousy t-shirt. Oh and I lost my job.

    If I see Jeff Brantley I’m NOT calling him cowboy……even if there’s a fire.

    We Heart Dusty!

    Or if that’s too subtle, let’s just call it like we really see it:

    We Heart Dunce-ty!

    Oh yeah, in reference to EKyRedsFan #1, I was listening to McAlister on the way home today, and he’s just NOW bringing up the HAVOC nickname for the starting pitching staff.

    Somebody on here finally alerted him to it?

    Warning: Clogging the bases may result in double plays and/or stranded runners.

    Possible side-effects include working the pitch count and scoring more runs.

    hahaha i love that one Johnny be goodhehe’s

    My friends and I joke around and call Dusty “Toothpick.” I think we should create a fiction character that is a toothpick and have several of Dustyisms: ” I was misconstrued,” “I ain’t no front runner” etc on the shirt.

    I like ekyredsfan’s idea about “face of the franchise” too. Good stuff!
