“Well, we’re getting ready for the Spurs. We’re hoping they win so we can print shirts all night,” said Todd Longenecker with Trademark’s, a t-shirt printing company.
This is obviously Todd before the Miami heat beat the San Antonio spurs 103-100 in Game 6 of the NBA finals.
Trademarks won a bid to make championship shirts for the San Antonio Spurs turning those yellow shirts into a lot of green. Don’t worry, there’s still hope for the shirts and for the Spurs. The team still has a shot at finals victory by winning game 7 Thursday, meaning the shirts can still possibly hit the shelves.
Longenecker isn’t the only one jumping the gun. Nike (of all things) made a special pair of shoes for Lebron James of Miami Heat fame.
What makes these shoes so special? The words “2-time champion” stamped on the inside of one shoe, and “11-12, 12-13” inside the other.
Just one problem: Lebron hasn’t won that second championship yet.
So who’s the fool, Longenecker or Nike? Guess we’ll find out Thursday.
