“Ohio Blues” t-shirt from Garage Cotton

I get the feel thing that the colours on this design mean something to American football fans, but since the coverage we get in the UK doesn’t go beyond the NFL (well, we can get college games via ESPN, but I can’t justify an extra $15 a month when I won’t watch it that much) I can’t immediately identify the team, and since ‘Ohio Football’ brought up a lot of green in Google Images I’m a little confused.

The good thing about this shirt, and the thing that attracted me to it first amongst the football related shirts on offer at Garage Cotton, was that it can be enjoyed by someone who isn’t necessarily a sports fan, hell, I’ll probably never go to Ohio and I think that it’s a great shirt!

    Context: This design is based on “Script Ohio”, a tradition of the Ohio State University Marching Band (the self-described “Best Damned Band In The Land”). At home games the band marches on single file and spells out the design featured on the field, ending with a sousaphone player energetically dotting the “i’. A YouTube search for “Script Ohio” will show you how it works. Great college game day tradition.

    That’s really cool, thanks for giving the background, makes me appreciate the design more now.
