“The shelf life for making a quick buck on a negative T-shirt about Frank McCourt is probably quickly evaporating”

Frankrupt

But the fact that the market existed in the first place is pretty telling.

Bill Shaikin has a story about dudes who have made a dollar or two capitalizing on Dodgers fans’ seemingly bottomless loathing of Frank McCourt.

Not that everyone has made a dollar or two. One guy in the article has sold about 200 shirts while giving away 250 of them to radio guys and bloggers, hoping they’d promote them. ¬†Guess that didn’t work too well.

But don’t give up! ¬†Maybe if you send me one for free it will push you over the top! I’ll even take a picture of myself in it and everything!

    McCourt makes Charlie O. Finley seem reasonable.

    Nobody wants to see Calcaterra in a t-shirt. Dry or otherwise.

      Well now if he offered to take a photo of Tiffany in a wet one, I dare say any number of us would probably send it his way….

    T-Shirts and bumper stickers built this country.

      Yes, I can still recall that iconic moment, captured on canvas for all eternity, of the Minutemen marching across the battlefield in their “Don’t Tread On Me” T-shirts.

      Not to mention the “King George III Sucks!” bumper stickers on the backs of the cannon.

        This totally makes me want to set up a not-so-historically accurate recreation, with the minutemen in those tshirts.

    This is just the basic premuse of “How to Make it in America” on HBO. Art imitating life imitating art in Chavez Ravine. Hmmmmm, I should go pitch that.
