How sick would Jesus have looked in a Black and Gold robe back in the day? And side note…there’s a disturbing amount of results if you search Google images for jesus steelers. Thanks to Penshead for the “Jesus Loves The Steelers” one above, though.
I’m not sure where this shirt originates, but I fully endorse its existence. I mean, while this Great Moments In Unlicensed Pittsburgh Sports Merch feature primarily highlights the horrible excuses for local sports shirts, I cannot hate on this one. The only thing that’s a tad confusing is that we’ve seen Jesus hating on the same team before, so I guess he ditched his other team(s) and hopped back on the bandwagon.
As far an unlicensed shirts go, this one is simple and effective. Most of the others would only mention the PITTSBURGH WORLD CHAMPS or some stuff, because they didn’t have the appropriate license to print shirts that said STEELERS or SUPER BOWL. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that the team didn’t issue a license for this shirt to use the word STEELERS, but who is going to forcefully shut down something with the Lord on it? I mean really.
So I think we’ve uncovered the loophole in unlicensed merchandise. Just add in some religion, and the NFL will back off on sending you or your vendor a cease and desist letter. Put a Polamalu wig on the Three Wise Men, or have Moses’ two tablets listing the 6 Roman numerals associated with each Super Bowl win. Maybe a picture of the Last Supper where all the disciples have on Steelers jerseys while eating some Primanti’s sandwiches? Okay, I think we’ve gone too far.
If you have any unlicensed Pittsburgh sports gear, or awesome generic sports gear from any team, send them to me and I’ll post them.
