Design Your Own DaBearsBlog T-Shirt

Note: Super Bowl coverage, with a complete lack of enthusiasm, will begin mid-week.  

We sold a lot of our various t-shirts, still available here, and would like to thank you fans for your support.  We do listen to your feedback and many of you have expressed your own ideas as to what the next DaBearsBlog t-shirt design should be.  So here's what we're thinking....

I want you each to present a t-shirt design idea and present it in the Comments section below.  Feel free to debate details and re-design/improve on each other's ideas.  I'll shuffle through make a list of three or four finalists and then you can all vote on what you'd like the shirt to be.  
As an added bonus, the back of the shirt will not only include...
DABEARSBLOG.COM
2011
ChicagoNow logo
...but also include your particular handle, i.e. GPLDAN.
The only stipulation is keep it to two colors to keep printing costs down.  This will be THE fan t-shirt.  We'll sell it for the same price, the symbolic $19.85.  
So get to planning...

  • Ill be first to say I cant wait to see what Doc comes up with!

    Or Crown.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    GP, I'm sure you will not dissapoint.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    I don't want to steal Crown's thunder, but mine needs to involve a riding mower...

  • In reply to sjvl:

    Niiiice.

    Btw, if you ever wondered what it was like to be a packers fan, this pretty much sums it up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nTPX4JW_Ts

    Hilarious. And a little scary...

    Moment of silence please (for his work on 007): http://www.cnn.com/2011/SHOWBIZ/Movies/01/31/film.composer.dies/index.html?hpt=T2

    And one comment... I am far from a rapenburger fan, but to echo what NB said last thread, the commish is a fucking ahole and should see some karma come back hard core. How fucked is that the week of the super bowl. Jesus, talk about selling your soul for more exposure/money. Man, what a kick in the fucking balls... such bullshit.

    I hope to god that rapenburger has a fucking insane game and just embarrasses the packers in every way shape and form. Would I feel the same way if it wasn't the packers in there... no, I'd want that big douche to burn in hell (if there was one), but hey, I'm allowed to have my own situational moral high ground.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    +1 on Goodell. And despite GPL's objection to the Spitzer comparison, I stand by my comments. I hope the guy gets caught taking a bribe or something and dissapears from football. Everything he touches goes sour.

    Maybe the shirt Lach standing over a mangled Roger Goodell. "Fine for unneccesary roughness: $25,000; Cost to replace blood stained armani suit: $3000; Installing Ditka as Da Commish: Priceless"

  • In reply to mottystone:

    Look at you!

    A bit of an oft-stolen concept, and a tad complex, but I like it.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Jebus, what did Goodell do this time?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Damn, MB. Agreed on both counts.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Just a quick idea before I study, put hester on the front or any established player and say"23 reasons I like the chicago bears" and then on the back there is a list of reasons.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    CHICAGO BEARS 90 YEARS OF TOUGHNESS AND HEART

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    How about a big-assed picture of Jerry Angelo grinning that dumb ass grin on the front.

    Then on the back...

    HEGONE!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    a girl can dream....

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    How about a picture of Jay pouting on the front and a picture of Big Ben on the back and says:

    Our quarterback has a pouty demeanor but at least he doesn't rape 19 year olds in bathrooms...habitually

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    I like it... but it puts too much focus on rapenburger... maybe just take out the picture of ben part.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    or a picture of Cutty glaring on the front and the caption reads "before a snickers and a blow job from KC and the back has Jay smiling and it says "post bj/snickers combo".

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    hahahaha... nice.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    or a picture of Cutler eyeing a can of Coke and the words danger underneath and then a picture of a glassy eyed Rapermeister eyeing a co-ed with the same danger tag underneath.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    btw, since I seem to be the one cluster bombing this mutha today, can I just say that the only thing almost as sickening as the brett farve season-long blowjob... is the season long, and now post season-long Aaron Rodgers blowjob.

    For fuck sake are you seriouspeople?

    God I hope he utterly implodes on the biggest stage possible this weekend. Troy, Ryan, my man James... and the rest of the Steelers D... please ass-rape that tool on international TV for everyone to see.

    I'm looking for zero TDs, 3 picks with 1 for a pick-6, one lost fumble returned for a TD, and about 170 yards. Oh please jebus.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    That might be a little to much to ask for. That is like asking the cubs to win the world series.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Yes. Johnny wins. Hands down. I would buy a million of those t-shirts, guaranteed*. Holy shit that is funny.

    *not a guarantee

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    where the hell is everyone.... is this thing on?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Calculating marginal costs.
    I think Waffle's is hilarious btw.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    MB, I haven't commented in a few, still recovering from our collective end.

    I hope our shirt enforces the point of how this blog keeps rolling even though the season doesn't. I'm gonna think of something.

    Bear down, folks.

  • In reply to bnjrmyn:

    Nice to have you back Ben. Shouldn't you be sleeping by now?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Indeed my friend, just about to crash then back to work tonight. I'll be thinking of some T-shirt themes.

  • In reply to bnjrmyn:

    Ok, kick starting this thing off with my first kind-of-real, but not very clever, and somewhat obvious concept (just to get some juices flowing). My real offering(s) will contain very simple, one dude's siloet in orange on a navy bg, with a single word or sentence... I like that style.

    This should kick things off though, but I wouldn't even vote for it...

    Navy background with a montage style pic of arnold with half the cyborg metal face showing... but have it be the lach instead of arnold. To his right is reece (john connor's dad) but have it be morphed into cutty's face instead... then have Hester's morphed face as the guy on the other side of lach/arnold as the black cop (kind of a stretch, but)...

    The orange title underneath simply reads, "We'll be back

    Only words "Da Bears".

    front- "7 step drop = R.I.P JC" back "JC rises again"

  • In reply to Grizzly559:

    How about a picture of Jay's MRI results for the Cutler "birthers" out there?

  • In reply to Shady:

    hee hee

  • In reply to Grizzly559:

    I was thinking the same thing as Big T. I believe it was Albert who had a friend who made a poster with the image of Urlacher standing over Favre after the Wooten hit.

    In big letters below it: RETIREMENT

    In smaller text below that: Sometimes you need others to show you the way.

    I actually went to the site that Albert referenced (can't remember it right now) and made myself that exact poster (though I didn't order it, yet).

    Here's a link to the picture: http://www.tremendousupsidepotential.com/2010/12/bears_40_vikings_14_nfc_north.php

    And sorry to dissapoint Murph, but creative designs are not my strong suit.

    Here's another idea though:

    An image of Lovie gazing up at the Jumbotron with some witty line beneath it... (witty line not coming to me right now)

    Do some of those shrooms again and just let it all happen!

    I like it.. but how about some WWII nose art style drawing of a bomb falling towards Green bay and it's wearing a Forte jersey. Sorta like some of these.. http://www.nose-art.net/index.html

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Ah i like that. only do it like WWII Nose art.. have a bomb falling towards Green Bay or the NFl logo and it's wearing a Forte Jersey rippling int he air as it falls to earth. Something like one of these

    Gets my vote.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    Hey all, I know this might not come up again for a while. But we should work up a code word if we're ever invaded by Packer trolls again. We all agree on different code words, each of which is designed to send us to an alternate thread. For example, "Free Mustache Rides" is agreed to mean "resume activity three threads back" or something to that effect. Let those fuckers stay on the current thread talking trash to eachother, we'll just uproot and move to a deserted thread. What say you all?

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Count me in, Doc. I more or less abandoned the blog for that week.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    I say, Piss harder.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    "We gotta, y'know ... piss harder."

    Underneath a photo of Cutler shrugging.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    I'd love something mimicing this poster:
    http://sarahjlwest.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/keep-calm-and-carry-on.png
    "Keep Calm and Carry On"

    Except, it'd be burnt orange on a navy BG, where the crown is you'd have the same crown, but a close-up pic of a bear head would be wearing the crown. Text would read:
    BEAR DOWN
    (Chicago "C" logo)
    CHICAGO BEARS

    That's my $0.02

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    or, just piss off. Lends a British flair, and they won't understand it.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Home of the Long Snapper Audible.

    X's and O's drawn below... or a pic of Pat Mann, though he doesn't have that facial recognition level needed.

    More hilarious attempt coming tomorrow.

  • In reply to JohnGalt:

    Also a good idea to harken back to the Audible. But needs a better phrasing. Maybe something like: "Da Bears Blog; Where the Long Snapper always gets the last word"

  • In reply to JohnGalt:

    Headshot of Cutler. Above it "Chicago Bears" Under it "Sugar Free Since 2009"

    Alternatively, Mount Rushmore with the heads of all our head coaches - Lovie, Martz, Rod and Tice

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    I like.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    yes

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Great idea Doc. I know a lot of people just got tired of it and didn't post. That would eliminate me punching my computer screen.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Since the shirt is supposed to identify the blog and us, we need something with a keyboard, a pair of gnarly nasty football hands and a saying something like "we got da answers" obviously we know we have all the answers but something like this would inform the public we have da answers and advertise the blog on Jeffs behalf. Maybe some silhouettes behind the hands and keyboard.

    Why not all of our avatars make a picture of something and the title be dabearsblog?

    Echo one bravo...Free Mustache Rides

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    I know some showed support for the ditka sillouette shirt. I'd be careful with that one Jeff. Pretty sure he has trademarked a similiar concept for his wines, meats, and whatever else he sells under the ditka name.

    Ok how about

    December 8, 1940.
    Bears 73 Redskins 0

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Problem is... Cheesy is reading this now. Dude literally follows every thread. He knew all of our dirty laundry. Kind of sad... if only he could stop the Tourette's like 10 year old packer douche outbursts, we might all adopt him as our stinky mascot.

    He's an intelligent kid, I honestly don't understand how he can go from really interesting discourse to his usual faggotty "Bear Still Suck" idiocy in one post. Oh, well... there's a packers fan for you.

    We can always try...

  • In reply to mottystone:

    Probably hard to find them in black suits and hats and it will be hard to identify them without showing their whole bodies, maybe just their faces and the black hats added via Photoshop...or action shots of them in their jerseys (with numbers visible) with the black hats. Although Briggs and Urlacher would make more sense as "brothers"...maybe add Peppers in there too?

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    One stupid one w/o thinking about it at all: A pic of Maynard with the elephantitus ball sack dude's sack on front. And on the back write My Nards.

    Or a picture of a computer w/ a screensaver of a naked Major Wright in a dorm room. On the bottom write: You've been Pringled.

    I know, too specific to this blog.

    I'm gonna put some thought into this before writing anything else.

    2 serious questions though for you guys:

    1. Does your ball sack keep hanging lower and lower as you age? Mine has dropped considerably in cm's the last half decade.

    2. I know my prostate will continue to change as I age. But, has anyone ever had the split pee where your stream goes in two different directions (like a fork in the road)? This has happened to me lately, and my girl keeps asking why the floor is sticky. I told her what's been going on, but I'd like to fix it. I've found recently that watching the water in the bowl rather than my peener seems to make the 2 opposite streams coincide back into one normal stream. Thoughts or suggestions?

    Piss harder?

    Jesus '85, that's not very fucking helpful. Although, you're young so I wouldn't expect much on these topics.

    Go take your tight balls to the library and go study! Get that A lad!

    I'm pretty sure it's not blockage, but I'll keep it in mind MB. Good looking out MB. Duly noted on the peeing harder 85.

    Just Hanie's face with mustache saying either

    "free mustache rides" or "frankly Collins I don't give a damn"

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    I like the earlier silhouet idea.. kind of a take on the NBA logo. How about a silhouette of a guy drinking a beer in front of a BBQ. Something like this http://fav.me/d21hwed mixed with this http://us.123rf.com/400wm/400/400/michaeldb/michaeldb0903/michaeldb090300004/4430447.jpg
    (ok it will take a bit of imagination) but in navy and orange. Needs some kind of words though..like "Da memeber of Da Blog.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    The shit earlier about the Chinese Air Force going straight homo Top Gun was funny, but that shit was hilarious!!! It's funnier to me, though, because I picture '85 sounds like John Cusack. Just me? That's cool.

  • In reply to Crowned:

    1. Supposedly this is indeed science, but I have yet to experience it personally... not taking environmental factors (like heat/cold) into consideration of course. I imagine it's a personal journey for everyone Crown.

    2. I've only had that after... well, I won't get too personal. If you haven't had sex and then not peed afterward, this should not be happening. Maybe you have an obstruction, might want to have your doc (not our doc, your doc for god's sake) check for too-small-to-cause-pain stones. Cause if you have those, you're going to get proper fucked (no pun) by a big one sooner or later (not personally, but my uncle gets them and they are a nightmare).

    You might also want to have the fianc

  • In reply to Crowned:

    To question #1, hell yes! #2 the split streamer, its a common occurrence and I guy I know had surgery for it. Depends how bad it is. His surgery only partly worked but at least he quit pissing on himself. Not sure how the "sighting" theory but if it works for you. Now so SJVL doesnt feel left out, do women ever experience the "split streamer" ?

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    NOOOOOO. Not that we stand around watching it either, so if it were happening, I probably wouldn't know it.

    Maybe its time to call the Roto Rooter Man?

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Had dinner with my larry david-like dad this weekend and he said he wants to get a bears tat on his shoulder. If you saw or knew my dad, you wouldn't think he would say such a thing. He's a fan, but not as hardcore as me. If he were to get anything (which I could never see), I would think it would be something about civil rights or jazz. I think it is about him getting older or wanting to be macho, but it had me cracking the fuck up for a while.

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Hey Crown, if the old man is feeling macho tell him to get the tat on the inside of the bicep. The closer to the armpit the better. That will get his attention. Or on the torso just above his legs. I've got ink there and it gets your attention when the tattoo artist is grinding away. WOO-HOO!

    fter a long stretch of being defensive-backs coach at a slew of college programs from 1982 to 2001, Jon Hoke finally made the big leap to the NFL in 2002 when he joined the Hooton Texans for seven seasons in the same role. He's spent the last two years with the Chicago Bears and now it looks like he could be moving on.

    FOXSports.com reports that Hoke interviewed for the Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator job yesterday. The Birds have been taking their time on this search, having only interviewed former New Orleans Saints secondary coach Dennis Allen since the season ended. Allen has since taken the job as defensive coordinator with the Denver Broncos.

    After the Super Bowl, the Eagles are rumored to be interested in interviewing Green Bay Packers defensive backs coach Darren Perry.

    Look for the Bears to bring in a veteran wide receiver, possibly one that will jump over Devin Hester or Johnny Knox and into the starting lineup. The Bears will be one of the teams looking at Plaxico Burress when his prison stint finishes, and others like Roy Williams from Dallas or the Jets

    I don't have the answer for that one MB but I'll say this, if that couple doesn't sell that package to get a place or to relocate, they have no one to blame but themselves.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I would also like something that relates to our current Bears. This past decade. I dont want know history lesson on my shirt. ya feel me.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    How about a homage to the pregame breakdowns. Front says "Why do I like the Bears today?" Back says "Because I always like the Bears"

    Image on the front can be anything really. A bear with the Lions, Packers and Vikings logos in its mouth... a sillouhette of a football player with 54 on the back. The numbers aren't enough for a trademark fight if the typeface is different or we make some other small changes. Using the names would get the NFLPA upset (and they need money this year).

    I like Crown's farve one too, or one of Johnny's cutty one's for the funny shirt... and maybe whatever GP is working on.

    for the serious shirt, I love this look:

    All navy background with the jordan like siloet (http://www.liaoning-gateway.com/74596374976397312/20070717/881838.jpg) in burnt orange. The siloet can be either Pep or Lach or Hester, but being a defensive player all my life I have to go with Lach or Pep.

    And reposting the idea from above, just in case Jeff misses it...

    Although there've been some freaking hilarious ones, I haven't seen anything yet that is simple, elegant, and not-clownish yet (my stupid shit included - others have been much better/funnier).

    I AM going to buy this shirt, so let's make it really good. I like humor but also kind of want a serious, simple, really hardcore shirt.

    If we come up with one of each, and we all agree to pick both up... maybe you can make it a packed deal... would you make that happen Jeff?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    uhhhh... that's 'packaged'

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Oh, and the shirt type is really important Jeff.

    No long-ass blocky sleeves and strange proportions. How about something that's nice and fitted (not tight, just not totally saggy and tent-like) with good proportions.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    WARNING - BEARS WILL ATTACK

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Yes

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    One of my favorite casual shirts is a golf shirt I got at an event for my law school. Soft collar, thick material with fitted short sleaves and a nice black and grey print. I can't stand wearing cheap t-shirts; or shirts with faded designs. I'd rather pay a bit more for something decent.

    Give me thoughts.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    I wouldn't buy the favre one. I like the jumpman-peppers concept, but would have to see how they are incorporated. That one has potential though. I love GP's Julius Peppers Experience and would definitely buy that.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    I'm liking the second one. The first would need the right slogan, and would need to be cropped, but I somehow I think it'll be hard to get it right.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    I like the first one with the slogan:

    RETIREMENT

    "Sometimes you need others to show you the way"

    I don't know if this was posted already but it should be an image of a bears fan hearting a guy holding a clipboard. Something about our love for the backup quaterback. Whatever the idea, it should be about the fans, because we stand the test of time, not members of the organization

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Have to be honest. The lowbrow humor doesn't offend me, but I'm not buying a shirt with any sexual references or cuss words. Blog posts is one thing, but a shirt my wife and kids get to stare at is something else.

    Just saying...

    Jeff - you also want to be a bit careful using official team logos or player images. Since your selling the shirts, I could see the Bears or the NFL getting irritated.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    Way ahead of you on the last point and agree with you on the first point.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    It doesn't sound like you'll be making enough money for it to be worth it, but if you need someone to look over a simple licensing deal with the above mentioned folks, I can offer my services to the blog pro bono (notice I wrote "simple" above).

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    OK new shirt idea. Running with it...

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    So far, my two favorites are "Hate the Media Love the Bears" and something in the nature of "Audibles from the Long Snapper Alive and Well"

    Haven't seen any really compelling picture ideas yet... but the slogan will help to narrow them down.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    ALRIGHT BOYS. THERE'S ABOUT THIRTY OR FORTY IDEAS AROUND THESE PARTS. START NARROWING THE IDEAS DOWN AND SHOWING SOME SUPPORT FOR THEM.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    I'm digging the Mount Rushmore idea. We just need a slogan to go along with it.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    Although there've been some freaking hilarious ones, I haven't seen anything yet that is simple, elegant, and not-clownish yet (my stupid shit included - others have been much better/funnier).

    To those of you who blasted me for defending JA's body of work for the last year or so, this article pretty much sums what I was saying. Out of 16 teams only 4 teams were given an A on last years season. The Bears were one of them. I know, I know, it's written by ESPN but as MB often says, even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/columns/story?columnist=clayton_john&id=5987814

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Yeah, I call bullshit on Clayton.

    WAY too early to grade out the Peppers acquisition. Let's talk in 2013. It is SIX years for $84M. Everybody thought Larry Johnson's 6 year $84M deal was terrific after his first year as well on the Hornets. In retrospect, it's probably in agent's MBA programs as a classic fuck up.

    Tice and Martz? That was Lovie grabbing the life preserver. Lovie is the man who ran Ron Rivera outta town. He knew either he stop hiring weak yes-men and get some real coaches in, or he wouldn't make it. Maybe we can credit JA with that, but probably it's Ted Phillips who told him to stuff his ego.

    Walter Sobchak: So what are you saying? When you get divorced you turn in your library card? You get a new license? You stop being Jewish?

    The Dude: It's all a part of your sick Cynthia thing, man. Taking care of her fucking dog. Going to her fucking synagogue. You're living in the fucking past.

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Ah the dual stream. That usually only happens for me post-coitus or post-self-coitus. Obviously, as the guys have stated, the dual stream is a tough one to reckon with. I'd advise risking a toilet-water-tea bagging until a straight stream is once again achieved. What you really want to be on the look out for is the fog pattern. Unless, of course, a fire should break out, and then there is no better kind.

    Upon further reflection, however, maybe you SHOULD just piss harder.
