Is anybody here a fan of Patagonia?
They make a bunch of outdoor gear and clothing - lots of it "technical" - for people who kayak with great white sharks or go to the North Pole or whatever. But Patagonia also has alot of cool stuff for the overweight, hot dog loving, beer drinking Cub Fan. And my favorite would be the shirts made of something they call "puckerwear".
It's amazing material - especially in the hot months - because it just does not stick to you.
I used to wear only t-shirts to Wrigley, but they've changed over the years.
As in, a t-shirt you buy at Wrigley will cost you more than a Patagonia Puckerware shirt.
Anyway, Patagonia seems to be for people who, ohhhhh... like to go world traveling to destinations where they wear Patagonia jackets in weather so cold that whiskey freezes and they hammer big climbing-nail things into giant icicles on mile-high cliffs and hang by a tiny ropes in the middle of nowhere and survive because it's awesome fun.
And... you might think that has nothing to do with us Cub Fans, but you'd be selling yourself short.
I'm hoping the Patagonia People read this post and go, "Man, we should sponsor that Tim Souers guy. Give him some free puckerwear shirts and do an action movie of him at Wrigley Field buying hot dogs and making the treacherous climb up the ramps to the cheap seats."
And Patagonia People - I can be reached at the email address at the top right, thank you. I'd like to talk to you about maybe doing a puckerwear pattern that involves the words "shut up and drink your beer" or "left field sucks."
Still on vacation, this post is from 2010.
My awesome blog service, Typepad, has this thing where I can schedule a post to come up automatically while I'm out probably not catching any fish.
