I'm worried that when I reach into the back pocket for my gun, I'll get my hand caught on the "F"

Does it say something in AOLese on the back?
Or does it have "WE ALL NEED SPELL N GRAMMAR CHECKING"?

does it say "I drop you" on the back? That'd be sweet.

And 'Dialed to 400 Watts'.

Add Penguin's "Pee to Serious Roadie" graph on the back and we're all set. I want two.

No white shorts, please.

Yeah, it's true. 531 is the winner, and he's going to autograph every jersey.



Seriously, I've been interviewing and auditioning for a job (totally, 100% broke), but I hope the nightmare ends and my schedule allows me to start spending more time around the forums and gives me my free time back. Then we'll get the real ones out, and perhaps if some folks like this one, we can add this design in too...

I'm truly not kidding when I say I'd buy that jersey in a second. I don't like to go stylin' and love a little light-hearted, don't take me serious stuff. Keep the misspellings!!! They add clas.

Hopefully managing a fitness club somewhere. Or the fitness director and running the fitness programs within a club.

And in an attempt to post something vaguely related to the thread, I especially like the way one sleeve is larger than the other. That's handy for those of us with one really muscular arm.

I'm not sure if you're referring to those of us who always grab the water bottle with the same hand or people who know enough to brake more with the front to avoid skidding. Or perhaps it's people who get lost of flats and are used to the funny, one-hand-holding, one-hand-stroking motion of using a frame pump.

I'd seriously buy/make one of these too. Very nice.
Wish I'd known about the contest sooner - I was a graphic designer in a former life. time ?)
I was thinking of adding "ROLF MAO":
and the World Championship stripes, but it's too 'busy' as it is

"Preciate it, but I may have something already. I'll know tomorrow, and if all goes well, I'll have two offers to choose from. But then again, it could backfire and I could end up with nothing tomorrow either. :-/

I agree that "I drop U" on the back would also be priceless! I 'd buy one of those as well as the "real" one. LOL
