New Mark Teixeira T Shirt

Teixeira ShirtYes.  I finally got my hands on a Mark Teixeira t-shirt.  I’ve been working on it for a while, trying to find one in my size.  I checked Olympia Sports, Champ Sports and some local sports stores but I couldn’t find any.  I didn’t want to go online to get it becuase my mom didn’t want to use her credit card online.  So yesterday while I was watching my brother and his friend and Chuck E. Chesse’s, I asked my mom if I could go over to the Olympia Sports that was right across the street.  She allowed me to do so and I walked over with my friend who I met outside the shopping center.  I looked around for a bit and I couldn’t find any Teixeira shirts at all.  I went over to the counter to ask if they had any in the back.  They went and checked and came back to tell me that they didn’t have any.  I was so bummed.  Then, right as I was leaving, a man walked in with a box of stuff that I assumed was just more stuff for the store.  When we left and were just outside the store, the lady from the store ran out the doors and caught us before we were too far away.  In that box was a supply of Yankees t-shirts and Mark Teixeira shirts were included.  I was so happy.  I went back inside and the got one out for me in my size.  I payed for it and was on my way with my new Mark Teixeira t-shirt.  Finally, after many weeks of searching, I finally found one.  I was so excited.

The funny thing is, I’ve been looking a really long time for one of these.  I don’t know why I couldn’t find any.  I couldn’t even find any Robinson Cano shirts.  The only Yankees shirts anyone had was Jeter, Chamberlain, Sabathia, and Posada.  Now, you may think this is becuase I live in the Boston area where most people are Red Sox fans.  But usually all the stores have bigger varieties of t-shirts.  Usually they’ll have an even number of Jeter, Chamberlain, Sabathia, Posada, Teixeira, Burnett, and Cano shirts.  When I couldn’t find any that I wanted, I was thinking they just didn’t want to sell it to me.  It was the weirdest thing.  But now that I have my Teixeira shirt, I am feeling more relieved.  After a long time looking for it, I finally came out victorious and can call myslef a proud owner of a Mark Texieira Yankees t-shirt.

    I actually just got my cousin, a die hard Yankees fan, one of those Tex shirts to go with the Joba one I got last year. I can’t believe you had such a hard time finding them, they are all over the place in sporting goods stores here in Philly. Nice shirt too.

    That’s a nice looking shirt, except for the nasty logo on the front. ;^)

    Seriously though, even though I have a healthy dislike of your team, one of the many things I’ve always admired about them is that their uniforms haven’t changed in forever. The pinstripes at home, the grays on the road…the way it ought to be.

    Note: it did irritate the shiite out of me on Memorial Day here in Texas when the Yanks wore those silly “patriotic” red hats. Forcing the Yanks to wear RED hats?!? How freakin UN-patriotic was that?

    Hi, Dillon …

    Mark Teixeira hit a big homerun in the Yankees 6-4 win over the Twins that completed the Yanks three-game sweep in that series !!! … And, Teixeira’s defense has been pure “GOLD” !!! … On Friday morning, it was a great view at top of the AL East, tied with the Red Sox for first place; but, by Friday night, it was a totally different view, after the Red Sox beat the Royals, 1-0, and the Yankees lost a very disappointing 10-6 game to the Angels [a game in which they blew a 5-1 lead] … The Angels always give the Yankees trouble, but we have to regroup and win the next two games which hopefully will move the Yankees into first place by the All-Star break !!!
    .
    I like the Mark Teixeira shirt … wear it proudly !!! … In my view, Tex has been the Yankees MVP in the first half of this season !!!
    .
    Take care, Dillon; Have a great weekend !!!
