I was perusing my Twitter feed this afternoon as I do at the end of every long day to find articles and columns I might want to read on my long commute home. But what I stumbled upon this time around was something so much better.

If you don’t know Stuart, he is as passionate a UC fan as they come and covers recruiting for another fansite Bearcats Blog (obligatory fist shake). Apparently he owns one of these masterpieces and I don’t and now it makes me sad.
I want one of these things so bad. The leering eyes, the flared nostrils, the stiff upper lip, and the chin, you guys! OMG, the chin! Put it all together and you get a character that so perfectly embodies the metaphorical fight Mick Cronin puts up everyday. Overall, the t-shirt absolutely sensational and needs to be hung from every rafter in Fifth Third Arena*.
*Actually, this is probably a terrible idea.
The good news is that I, like you, can also purchase this t-shirt for a cool $23.52 at something called redbubble.com. I’m not sure how they landed on that price point. That might be the first product that has ever been slotted 52-cents in the history of merchandise but whatever, it works!
Also if Mike Bohn and UC wanted to change the team name to the “Angry Micks”**, I think Cincinnati fans would oblige. Mick’s persona would make a great mascot. Can you imagine being another team and staring at a 7-foot tall version of this running around on the sideline? They would piss themselves with fear.
**This is also a terrible idea.
