You can get your “Si, Motherf****r” shirts now

Last week Buster Olney passed along a great anecdote of Miguel Cabrera hitting bombs in BP:

When Cabrera took his turns in the box, he carved long liners to right field, over and over, shouting to the others to guess whether they would clear the fence.

“SI OR NO?” Cabrera yelled. “SI OR NO? SI OR NO?”

When the ball would land on the other side of the chain-link fence, Cabrera punctuated the drive this way: “SI, M———–.”

After that, I said “If that isn’t on a t-shirt with Detroit Tigers colors being sold by a Tigers blogger by the end of the day the Internet has failed.”

Well, the Internet hasn’t failed.  You can, if you’re so inclined, get your “Si Motherf****r” shirts now, thanks to the good people at the Tigers blog, Walkoff Woodward.

Purchase one if you have great taste.  Just don’t count on the Tigers having similar taste to you if you decide to wear it into Comerica Park. I have this feeling they’re gonna make you turn it inside out or something, even with the %$&*@! characters covering up the profanity.

    If I ever have a brilliant profanity laced baseball t-shirt idea, I’m gonna be proactive and put something far more raunchy on the inside of the shirt.

    Won’t ship to Canada. :-(

      Dammit. I’m no Tigers fan but I want that shirt.

    I was ready to buy one until I saw the profanity was edited. It seems to me the population of people who would be offended by the unedited version and not the edited version would be small.

      drunkenhooliganism is on to something though. Be industrious and order one with the whole thing typed out. Just be sure to get them to put something far worse on the inside of the shirt.

      My 3-year-old can sound out words, he can’t fill in the blanks. It doesn’t need all the letters to deliver the message/point.

        See, I don’t have kids but I was going under the assumption the edited out part would be MORE likely to solicit questions about what the message meant.

    The person who designed the shirts tweeted me back. He said he tried to get the unedited version made, but the four places he contacted wouldn’t do it.

    When the ball would land on the other side of the chain-link fence, Cabrera punctuated the drive this way: “SI, M———–.”

    And i thought he was just a really big Sports Illustrated fan

    Add to cart.

    Within hours of Crag’s post going up, shirts were available on-line. If at all possible, I’ll get one when I’m in the States this summer, but, long before that, I think we’ll see a new blog handle grace the blogsphere…si, I think so, si….mo-fo.

    or as the mason said to his apprentice: “Si, mortar forker”.
