Great Moments In Unlicensed Pittsburgh Sports Merch: Zombie Penguins

I gotta thank usbzoso for the tip on both of these shirts back in April. And we had to sit on them for six months for Halloween because get real.

Above, we have a lovngly-rendered zombie version of captain Sidney Crosby, titled as the CROZBIE APUCKALYPSE. I got this in early April, so I'd imagine it was riffing on Sid's then-fresh broken jaw. Only that's now in the distant past, so we'll enjy this as a typical unlicensed Pens shirt for Halloween when coupled with the one below.

This one came from Kelly originally before being sent over by usbzoso, and the colorful end result is perfect. Instead of using typical generic tropes like PITTSBURGH HOCKEY or fake versions of the logo, this shirt has Pens mascot Iceburgh wielding a stick and riding the Zomboni…which is taking care of zombie versions of division rivals Alex Ovechkin, Scott Hartnell and Henrik Lundqvist. At least I believe that's a zombie version of the guys…Ovechkin is the only zombie face seen and he's pretty ugly to begin with.

Paul mentioned that this one comes from Pittsburgh's House of the Dead, so I'd be a fool not to give them a shout out.

My only question is if Iceburgh would use the Zomboni against zombie-Crozbie, because the mascot seems to have a disdain for said zombies and Sid being one would definitely create a conflict. But oh well, that's a conundrum for after Halloween.

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.
