More Redskins T-Shirts

I will always regret not being at Redskins Park last Wednesday, when Rock Cartwright handed out his now-famous homemade present for teammates:

"Black T-shirts with the Redskins' emblem on one side and a burgundy-lettered message on the other: "When You Are Winning, Fight Like You Are Losing."

As someone well acquainted with the art of the homemade t-shirt (please go buy Mister Irrelevant's newest Blog Show creation: Shazzam!, in honor or Shaun Suisham), I appreciated Rock's effort, although I can't help but wonder whether he was officially licensed to use the Redskins' emblem. I also wonder whether his shirts, like those seen on Blog Show (Tuesdays, Comcast SportsyNet, check local listings) were made with iron-on letters bought at craft store chains. No?

But my problem is, the Redskins played great when they were losing on Sunday, but they again coughed up a late lead. The t-shirt motto didn't work! When they were winning, they played like they were winning, and when they were losing, they played like they were losing, and when they were tied, it was chaos. I think. Herewith, some additional suggestions.

(Really, this was all just an excuse to remind you to tune in tonight for Blog Show, featuring such made for television blogs as I Dislike Your Favorite Team, The Wizard of Odds, Going Five Hole, The Jaunt and Every Day Should be Saturday. And you can watch now watch James Brown's Blog Show promo.)

Think how awesome they've been in overtime.

Perhaps Rocky's message was not explicit enough.

Just in case anyone forgets the gameplan.

Actually, I'm thinking about wearing this to next week's post-game presser.

Rock, like anyone else who makes a Redskins shirt is well within their rights. Apparently, because of the "offensive" (pshaw) nature of the team's identity, anyone is legally permitted to use the team logo.
