Morning Look: Show Me Your Cooley
Warning: Possibly tasteless. Look away if you're extremely sensitive. Or if you're my boss.
It's still early, but this has clearly been the Year of the T-Shirt for Skins fans. The Brothers Mottram have already spit out the Zorn Star and Stay Medium shirts, and this morning debuted their amazing new t-shirt model: Clinton Portis! Chris Cooley unveiled his own line of t-shirts. The stands at home games are literally filled with the Junkies' Horny for Zorny shirts and various designs from D.C. Sports Fan.
And now this. Meet Darla Church and Jenni Kreller, on a two-woman mission to turn "Cooley" into a noun with a quite specific anatomical meaning. I'll let you guess what meaning that might be.
Darla told me that they're tired of going to NFL football games with female friends and listening to drunk male fans ask them to show off their...well, body parts.
"Show US something," Darla told me, speaking generically of male football fans. "Show us your Cooley."
The shirts are available in several fonts, and are properly accompanied by shrieks from the wearer, mostly to visiting Cleveland Browns fans, repeating the demand on the shirt. So, did it work? Had they seen any, um, Cooleys?
"Just our husbands'," Darla told me. "What can we do?"
"Everyone else is too shy," Jenni said.
"We told the Browns fans we'd stop telling them they [stink] if they show us their Cooleys, but they're too shy, so they continue to [stink]," Darla said.
She e-mailed me the link to the t-shirt shop this week, a message that had a sad addendum.
"We still didn't get to see any Cooleys," she wrote. "I don't think everyone knows what they are yet!"
Give it time, Darla, give it time.
