Great Moments In Unlicensed Pittsburgh Sports Merch: Six Shootin’

The above shirt is the 3rd in a set of 3 from Frank. Remember this Fakeamalu shirt, or this strippers one? This one here completes the triumvirate.

I’ve already told you that I’m no fan of the new slogans/catchphrases for the Steelers. Six and the City, Sixburgh…all that stuff I can do without. Stairway to Seven is already grating enough. One For The Thumb and One For The Other Thumb were cool, because they directly involved that highly-anticipated fifth ring and what lay ahead. Nowadays, everyone wants to be the one to coin the next accepted phrase.

Six Shootin’ doesn’t work for me. I guess I’m just tired of the whimsical attempts at catchphrases. And no one on the team shoots people. We get rid of guys and then they go shoot themselves in the leg on other teams…that’s the closest you’ll get to guns with the Steelers of the past however-many years.

The phrase is in the standard Steelers Gunplay font, but the bottom only references Pittsburgh. That’s a common trend among many an unlicensed shirt.

Frank…if you wear this to training camp next year, I’ll give you 20 bucks. Then I’ll beat you up and take my 20 bucks back. I can’t even tell if that’s a gun or just a really deformed hand.

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.
