Whatever happened to the 50+ jersey?

Anybody know? Did I miss the official unveiling?

Here's a link to the jerseys, but you can get a cotton T-shirt for about 15 bucks:

I proposed something sassy and potentially irreverant to some older adults (Old Elitists Bastards or something like that), and the reactions ran along the lines of "let's not demean ourselves and come up with something that honors our age".

Being of the minority opinion, I dropped it.

The original idea came from the thread about an "elitist bastards" bike (photoshopped if I'm not mistaken).

Too bad. For the record, I share the minority view.

As I remember, we are waiting for someone to step up and coordinate the effort. After all, DFox did more than his share with the Rogue's Gallery. I would buy a T-shirt or Jersey, whatever. I was hoping we would be allowed to use BF colors and logo on the top, then something like 50+ Rogue's Gallery underneath. For extra bucks, you could have your BF handle stitched on the back.
