Our Friend Ha Mai, founder and creator of Fur Face Boy, has got to be one of the MOST passionate people that I know. When he loves something, he really loves it. And let me tell you, he fucking loves the Dallas Mavericks.
“F YEA!!! After SO many years of agony, torment and waiting –the 3 J’s, Terry Davis, Roy Tarpley, Doug Smtih, Lorenzo Williams, Popeye Jones, Toni Braxton, Jim Cleamons, Ross Perot Jr., Frank Zaccanelli, Cherokee Parks, Chris Anstey, Chris Gatling, Samaki Walker, Shawn Bradley, Gary Trent, Robert Pack, Dennis Rodman, Erick Strickland, Howard Eisley, Calvin Booth, Don Nelson, Avery Johnson, the Big 3, the Golden Nuggets, the one game only pewter jerseys, the Antwins, the ’06 Finals, the Golden State debacle, player after player, let down after let down, meltdown after meltdown –MY Dallas Mavericks put the beat down on the Evil Empire to FINALLY win an NBA Championship! And to celebrate MY Mavs winning it all, the FUR FACE DIGGLER is back, only this time…..as a CHAMPION!” -The Fur Face Boy, Ha Mai
The FUR FACE DIGGLER (Champion Edition) tee will be available through PRE-ORDER ONLY until Wednesday, June 15 at 11:59pm (CST), so be sure to secure this LIMITED-TIME tee today before time runs out! Shirts are scheduled to ship out to YOU on Saturday, June 18th.
PS: If you love this Fur Face Boy T-Shirt then you’ll LOVE an upcoming post that I’ve got planned. You see, while I was in the academic jungles preparing for my Dissertation Defense, Fur FaceBoy sent me a box. In that Fur Face Box was a treasure trove of Fur Face Boy T-Shirts. I haven’t forgotten about that box and I am excited to share with all of you the contents! To be continued…
Well, sort of. Actually, the premature and incorrect congratulations came from Macy’s, who, unfortunately ran an ad prematurely notifying Miami Herald readers that Heat Championship T-Shirts were now available for sale at Miami Macy’s locations. Hah! That’s pretty funny considering that 1. the Heat didn’t win the 2011 NBA championship, and 2. the Heat didn’t win the 2011 NBA championship.
I have to say that I did watch the Finals with a close eye and am very happy that the Dallas Mavericks finally won an NBA championship. I’m happy for Dirk Nowitzki and I am happy for Jason Kidd, two players that I have been following for a very long time. In fact, throughout the playoffs, I was reppin’ a vintage Kidd replica jersey circa 1994. It’s about damn time that the both of the won some hardware.
By the way, if you’re interested in picking up an official Dallas Mavericks 2011 NBA Championship T-Shirt, you can grab one now at the NBA Store.
With that said, in 2012 it will be all about one red Rose and the Chicago Bulls.
I’ve never been a big Lebron james fan. in fact, I’ve plain out booed him on many occasions. However, I am a Dwyane Wade fan and I have been since he first came into the league. So now I am left with the problem of cheering for Lebron simply because he now plays for the Heat. Oh well, we’ll see how this season goes because anything less than a championship will be a disappointment in South Beach. Thank goodness I don’t live in Cleveland. LeBroke is available now from Skreened for $26.99. Via In My Short Sleeve.
In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear My Better Half by Katrina Vaughan and available at Threadless and review Kent State from Homage Clothing, a brand based out of Columbus, Ohio that focuses on turning back the clock with shout outs to eclectic moments and personalities in sports, music, politics and popular culture. Homage tees “tell stories of triumph, individualism and hustle, preserving the old school and creating new legacies.”

Kent State by Homage Clothing.Pros: The shirt is super soft as is the print. Comes boxed in wonderful cardboard packaging and shirts are wrapped in a plastic bag. The shirt features a custom hangtag and has a Homage Clothing branded neck tag. A pack of vintage American Gladiators trading cards came packaged with the shirt.Â Cons: This shirt is made for a very specific and narrow niche – Kent State fans! If you love Kent State Â you’ll dig this vintage tee. If not, well, you really wont care much about it. Pricey.Â Price: $32.
My Better Half by Katrina VaughanÂ and available at Threadless.Pros: Simple yet effective! People will look at this one and either laugh or smile or disagree.Â Cons: I kind of wish the dotted line extended the length of the shirt. Price: $15.
LeBron James has been a beast this season and this has no doubt been his most impressive season to date. Nike has released the official LeBron James Witness MVP tee to celebrate his MVP season. I have to admit that I’ve been one of those LeBron skeptics since he first left high school and jumped straight to the league. But this season, something about his demeanor, confidence and team play impressed me. And I admit, despite not being a Cavaliers fan, that I am witnessing one of the most electrifying athletes to ever play the game of basketball. This MVP was well deserved .
The Witness tee is available now for $30 and the the Zoom LeBron VI MVP Edition will be available on May 30 for $150. Â
Are any of you keeping up with the NBA playoffs? Who are you cheering for?Â
