Team Foo Cycling Jersey

I think we need a jersey just for Foo fans.... Here's a quick prototype (based on the color scheme for the Boulder Triathalon):

FRONT: BACK:

Here's the logo on the front:



Here are the logos from the sleeves:

Ladies of Foo Fan Club (L.O.F.F.C.)


Ryanf




So, what do you think? Ideas? Somebody want to draft up a Foo Rats graphic?

I think the back should say, "Foo On You" with a Foo smiley.

Would also purrrrrr if it were red/black/gray.... Or at least used BF colors.

Nice job, though!

Ryanf is a road cycling forum thing, not a foo thing.

The jersey has pink however. I give you 2 thumbs up good sir.

ditch the Ryanf thing.

Replace it with a milk carton with "Have you seen MERTON?" on it.

love the idea - not crazy about the colors.

We need to put things on it that have FOO characteristics - like something pink for Pheard, or <serious Vega look>, ect...

oh, and a smiley face. We need a smiley face and maybe some other emoticons.

I like the choice of slogan, but the overall presentation just doesn't "grab" me. I'd go with bigger, bolder lettering, and possibly different color combinations. I appreciate the thought and effort, and hope you'll take this in the constructive sense it was intended in.

Correct. Ryanf is Bikeforums, but not yet Foo.

We could use them in place of the "oo" in Foo. Now the question is...

F

F

F

F

On a good day, F

or on a bad day, F


Of course the trick will be getting the moving emoticons to work on the jersey!

One idea, might a small RevMonkey memorial be a good idea to squeeze in on the sleeve or something?

Now if we can just embed a small micro chip in to the jersey that plays the theme song from The X-Files over and over...

Regarding Al Wong, perhaps we could have his little stick guys on it on the sleeve or something. No words RIP or anything just the stick guys maybe with the "stop that". Subtle enough and yet very strong. Because WE know what it is and what it means to us.

If anything regarding a Revmonkey memorial gets made, is there any chance of me getting just that patch? I usually wear motocross jerseys on the bike, spandex doesn't like me much. I would defenitely have that on my jersey or even on my frame somewhere, though.
