Chicago Cubs’ manager Joe Maddon is a beloved, laid-back, hippy-dippy baseball genius and reliable quote machine. Part guru, part showman, part goofball, Joe loves to regale the media and influence his players with witty quips that put the game in perspective, and this year’s motto may be his most direct yet: “Try Not To Suck”.
With a talent-laden roster that has actually improved since its 97-win campaign, the admonition is apt – chill out and our quality will prevail. The slogan was a hit and made for a popular tee shirt which Joe is selling to benefit charity
(buy it there, rather than from opportunistic counterfeiters).
So long as Cub Nation is proudly displaying a bit of crass language on its collective chest, it might as well express its deeper baseball sentiments in the same manner...we’re trying not to suck, but the Cardinals always will!
Show your love for the North Siders and your hate for the Red Birds with this silly slap at our rivals to the south...all the more appropriate because the Cards tried to ban the original tees from Busch Stadium
(let’s see how they like this one)!
Like all National Fanthem designs, this is not an official product of any player, league, franchise, manager, or eyewear designer -- it's just a fun piece of unique art from our imagination; drawn by hand and rendered digitally as a lossless high-resolution vector graphic for ideal printing. It comes on 100% cotton preshrunk tees in sizes small through 5XL.
