Redskins Clothing Gets Sexy

All I really wanted to do just now was post a little something on how the Redskins official team store will happily sell you a t-shirt commemorating any occasion, from the third Tuesday of preseason practice to the 300 Level's 1,00th hot pretzel purchase of the season to the 10-year anniversary of that one time someone on the Redskins did something cool.

Available on the site right now, for example, are the 2007 Wild-card round t-shirt (was $17.99, yours for $3.00), the 2007 Wild-card hat (was $17.99, yours for $5.00), the 2008 Draft Day t-shirt ("Believe In Now," except for the first and third choices, in which case believe in eight weeks from now), the 2008 Training Camp t-shirt (which, perversely, costs more than the actual regular-season shirts) and the 2008 Kickoff t-shirt ($19, ships in 48 hours, best of luck to you). If I hadn't decided to give up on cheap shots, I'd note that this franchise has more fan t-shirts than the Nats have fans.

But then I saw the first PG-13 clothing item I've ever noticed on an official team online store, and this item suddenly took on a much sexier shade of burgundy. Most of the puns I'd like to use here would probably get me fired, but suffice it to say that someone seems to be particularly excited by the dawn of the NFL season. Due to the adult nature of this image and the puritanical nature of my employer, it appears after the jump. Expect a commemorative t-shirt any day now.

(And as a wise colleague of mine just noted, when we said we wanted more transparency out of the Redskins, this wasn't exactly what we had in mind.)

Hmmmmm. Those certainly aren't the same "eyes between the shoulders" that CP has.

I definitely think the 1,00th hot pretzel sold deserves a commemorative T.

That torso looks like Danny The Midget's ultimate sexual fantasy...if only she was wearing a Redskins belt buckle!

So what? Danny Snyder is behind liberated free-boobing feminists....nothing wrong with that.

Thank God the Big Stein is back from China. God I missed his journalism...and I'm not even trying to be sarcastic.
