Team Obama


Has there ever been a presidential candidate that has inspired more mass-marketed stuff than my man Barack Obama? That's what I was thinking when I was checking out the $16 Obama action figures and $20 bobbleheads at this store in Pasadena last night. Anyway, I was reminded of this admirably entrepreneurial effort I saw the other day, apparently run by non-Punahou people in NYC. Cooler than the OBEY "Progress" or "Hope" T-shirts?

Last thought-- what will they rename at Punahou after Barack Obama if he is elected President? I mean, you gotta start with something bigger than, say, McNeil Hall, right? Who the hell was McNeil anyway?

He was in Ravenclaw, if I'm not mistaken. that's why you didn't know about him.

I save versus the throwing of projectiles. A natural 20! Coach McFarlane steps through time to block the projectile.

hahaha. Also, no small amount of glee thinking of the Williamsburg boys and girls vacationing in the Isles, wearing this shirt while stopping for Malasadas at Ted's at Sunset Beach, and finding themselves beaten up.
