What would a 50+ Forum jersey look like?

In the thread on the Nor Cal Jersey, Dchiefransom said it would look like this
http://www.teamestrogen.com/products.asp?pID=23095

But really, could there be one cool enough for us to wear?

Ideas?

And when you go to that velogear jersey page, the default selected jersey size is, of course, 3XL.

>>> What would a 50+ Forum jersey look like?

Light colors with the words, "Old Crank" across the back. Under the words a print of a hand-drawn dis-articulated cottered crankset complete with chainrings that are missing teeth.

Alternately, "Aging Athlete: Ultimate Predator" over a picture of a scarred and crack-toothed tiger.

. . .Orrrrr. . .a jersey just like everyone else's.

Seriously: high viz, club cut, classic design (like forget the Primal Wear bizarro stuff), some dignity (none of that "Toothless Beer Gut Old Fart" stuff) cuz some of us ride fairly hard and take riding seriously even if we're not Serious Riders, and something a little humorous or wry but not self-deprecating-- because we do know our limitations even if we choose to disregard them at times.

In other words, something we can wear around the grandkids or go click-clacking into Starbuck's with.

The two Venti sized gentlemen above may be an eyeful but they're having a good time and, despite their ludicrous look, may well respect themselves. Hopefully they're self-aware but indifferent to their own appearance.

I hope I am still able to ride when I am their age. They are probably comparing a "bent" that just went by to theirs.

Yes. I'm liking that. Maybe just a little self-deprecating.

TEAM EXPERIENCED, or something

Maybe just a very graphic 50 as if it's a jersey number

Ya know, it isn't impossible. If we get enough interest we could have a few made. The Northern Calif forum did. I think the minimum order is only 10. We could get sleeveless or normal. Lets see if we get any bites.
Design can be considered in flux, improvements from suggestions are possible.

Highlights are gray.
Yellow is for visibility, (or to match toe nails.)
