Rays Fans Meet Hubris, Hubris Rays Fans


The playoffs always feature some interesting t-shirt designs from fans. Usually the shirts are a little crude (see “Jeter Sucks A-Rod”) or overconfident, but they are made by fans so that makes sense. On the other hand, for a franchise, particularly one in the playoffs for only the first time and who has won a single series to come out with their own sanctioned, MLB shop t-shirt like this is simply unfathomable.

WOW. That’s a pretty bold t-shirt to be offering. Talk about overweening pride. Hasn’t anyone told them the story of Icarus. I hope someone shows these to the Sox players. Again, it’d be one thing if this were a fan-made shirt. But it ain’t. You can purchase it through the Rays’ official team store on MLB.com. I simply don’t get it. Confident is one thing, cocky is OK too, but c’mon, you haven’t done a goddamn thing yet. I look forward to some drubbings now. Let’s GO SOX!

    I curse your team into eternity! May Johnny Gomes get a meaningless single in a 10-2 Rays victory!

    I hope that’s hanging as motivation in the Red Sox clubhouse.
