The Power Of A Shirt.
On May 30th, besides the amazing (on paper) matchup of Q and Sale, our good buddy #WallyMoney (you can follow him on Twitter here) was tossing the first pitch. Doing us an extreme solid, his clothing for the night was our Jersey Demolition shirt. Yes, he rocks. Yes, he even paid for it. See his pic below –
Was #WallyMoney the ultimate Sale troll? I say yes. Did it rattle Sale’s cage? I doubt it, but it was really awesome to see a shirt you designed on the field, on the board. Here is another pic –
Pretty cool right? Well, after the first pitch, #WallyMoney came and joined us. During the discussion on who threw a worst first pitch, #WM told us that Frazier, Todd Frazier, told him that he had on an “great” shirt. So, being the enterprising kids we are, we decide that we need to make sure that Todd get’s a shirt. Just one slight problem……@fromthe108 is blocked by The Toddfather a.ka. The Blockfather.
We aren’t exactly sure when we were blocked, but the first time I tweeted at him with the 108 account, it was before he even played an inning for the CWS. He was at SoxFest, meeting someone at Kitty O’Sheas, and I tweeted at him that we’d buy him a drink. Later BeefLoaf tweeted “something” at him and we were for sure blocked after that. So our good friend Bobble Jim tweeted at him and with my MSS account I responded with this –
As I was walking down to the park, I got the message and a few texts too, so we were set to make the hand off. I know where to go to get limited access to these guys, you look for the kids and go there. So me, with a bunch of kids, waiting, for Todd. After he did his warm ups, he came over and signed about 75 autographs. That is pretty damn amazing. The Sox were shooting video (and thank God my fat ass didn’t end up on that video creeping on Frazer with my bad ass shirt), but I know he does it every game, the guy is the real deal. So, I wait for my chance, and let him know I have his shirt. He laughs and says “Thanks!”, tucks it under his arm, signs a few more caps, and walks off the field with his new shirt.
Pretty awesome. But then something magical happened….
It didn’t start right away, but after getting his Jersey Demolition shirt, Todd Frazier has been on fire. Legit fire. Up until last night, which he singled, he is slashing .333/.379/.741, which according to most is ridiculous. So why is the sudden turn around? MONEY! IT’S GOTTA BE THE SHIRT.
So if you need to improve your stats, your sales, your side chick game, ability to shotgun beers, shoot Jagermeister, talk to girls, talk to guys, eat hot dogs, jump higher, run faster, make more money, swim faster, fly further, wake up early, pick up a new hobby, quit a bad habit, meditate, start a journal, start a weekly exercise routine, read a book weekly, reduce social media use (take a break for a week or a month), start a blog, begin a new healthy habit, ask for feedback, get out of your comfort zone, learn something new, avoid negative people, call a loved one that you have not spoken to in while, sign up for a class, try a DIY project, start a savings account, take a trip by yourself, schedule a spa day, overcome your fears, take a break, learn a new language, reach out to a potential mentor or volunteer in your community THE SHIRT CAN HELP. As Todd Frazier has shown, our shirt has magical powers that surpass the almighty Jobu!
