Some readers may not know that as well as striving to provide quality, up-to-date Brewers news, takes, interviews and features, Right Field Bleachers also prints and sells T-shirts. Over the years, we’ve seen our shirts worn by countless fans at games, have recognized them on Brewers telecasts, and have shipped orders to almost every state in the country. But not every RFB shirt idea makes it out of the meeting room—until now. Printing Press Rejects will periodically provide a glimpse into some less-than-popular shirt ideas…or, more accurately, allow us to make low-quality Photoshops of lower-quality puns.

“Ja-Macha-ing Me Crazy”

How it came about: Around three years ago, at Right Field Bleachers’ inception, I made my irrepressible presence known with the genius idea of “Jamician Me Hardy.”  J.J. Hardy, at the time, being the most popular and cute Brewer, had his considerable amount of fanfare. Looking to capitalize in our newfound hundred-dollar business venture, I sought to portray Hardy in a funny, original, and cute depiction. That failing, I reluctantly moved on to newly hired Brewers skipper Ken Macha.

Does it fit the brand (is it a text heavy design that exalts alcohol, firearms, facial hair, or a Dominican man’s ejaculate)? ‘Tis semi texty, but lacks in the expected allusions to preference of hair and/or Central America man fluids, as to ever resist. But it’s a weird idea to say the least, so it turned in to a little game called Crazy 8’s. In my eyes, it beats a lot of other ideas. I love you, Saved by the Bell chick, and I’d totally be down to jam if it wasn’t for that Awesome dude’s sake…more like slightly above average guy if you ask me.
