Ahhhh – It’s Monday night. After putting in another day down at the cracker factory like Kirk Van Houten, it’s time to relax. But how do I find my peak relaxation?
While reading this or my other pieces at CRR, you may be thinking to yourself that I am a sophisticated genius that enjoys listening to NPR on my Bose Wave radio. When the day is done I surely pop the cork on some red wine and nibble on some dark chocolate to boost my antioxidants #FreeRadicalsSuck. All the while I carefully trim my Bonzai tree. Keepin’ it classy.
That guess was close but not quite accurate. I actually like to wind down the beginning of the week by kicking my feet up, grabbing a few packs of Smarties, drinking down some chocolate milk, and turning on the longest running episodic show on TV. Of course, I’m speaking of Monday Night Raw.
Wrestling and I have had a torrid love life over the years. It was something that I used to hide. Embarrassed, I would avoid sharing the fact that I thoroughly enjoyed watching grown, well-tanned men in tights pretend to punch each other. Surely people would judge me harshly for sharing love for “my stories.”
Now in my mid-30s, I’m ready to set the record straight. It’s time to step out of the closet to see the light of day; my name is Eric, and I love wrestling.
With that being said, I’m a t-shirt guy. Why would I say something with words when I can wear it on a shirt? But where can I guy like me find a shirt that suits me? Shop.WWE.com would be the natural option, but buying the official gear of one Superstar is risky. The guy with all the hype today can be erased tomorrow by a lack of support from the behind the scenes string-pullers. I’m looking for a lasting investment.
Fortunately for me, I stumbled upon a banner ad from Headline Shirts (on this very site). In a sea of shirt companies with styles and products that all run together, Headline Shirts has a way of standing out. Their designs are unique with a variety that is extensive without being nauseating. The prices are fair and the shipping is reasonable. Page after page I scanned until this beauty popped on my Retina display:
This shirt must be mine. It’s got everything I need in a wrestling shirt. It is fun and modern while being a throwback to a bygone era where the Ultimate Warrior was shaking the crap outta those ropes and a pre-racial slur riddled sex tape Hulkster was dropping legs on the world. A couple clicks and bada boom, the shirt was in my room.
The large was a great choice and the super-soft blend felt great against my skin. Looking at the tagless inside, I was treated to a surprising display of personality from the California company.
The wash instructions are especially helpful. Read closely: Remove before washing. Wear with pants. You gotta take care of your Sucka-Free Vintageblend. The design of the shirt got me to make the purchase, but the tag area will get me to buy another. It’s probably time for you to give them a try, too. Check them out: www.HeadlineShirts.net.
