  • Lis Saunders says:

    Now I think it's high time we get some Atlanta Hooverball shirts printed. Who's got ideas? Carlos Tapia, Drew Vabulas, Jon De La Paz, Kaylee Niemasik, Fred Schesny, Tirzah White, Brianne Elaine Verraneault, Dan Waterson, Jeff Hignite, John Abare… anyone else? let's hear em.

    • Kaylee Niemasik says:

      If we're going the "classically cool" route, I think the only option is a picture of Lis' cat that ate a skink. No accompanying text. Ideally in the form of a full-color iron-on. Poorly ironed.

    • Lis Saunders says:

      Blanco would be honored. Maybe skinks and deaf cats dressed in Carnivale attire whilst jumping through the Olympic rings???

    • Brianne Elaine Verraneault says:

      Hmm I'll think about the design but our slogan could be 'East Coast Ballers' and/or on the back we could say 'Our Balls Fly High' (lol on the last one)

    • Brianne Elaine Verraneault says:

      Or 'Only East Coast chicks dive for balls' haha – ok I'm done with the inappropriate slogans for now.

    • Kaylee Niemasik says:

      Classically cool…nailed it, Lis.

  • Can we put a Skink on it?

  • Wood says:

    Hey, that’s a clever way of thinnikg about it.

  • Nice the right to go about this, I am definitely in it as well as absolutely adore analyzing a little more about this excellent niche. Assuming promising, since you create practical knowledge, on earth do you responses renewal your own web log in farther data? This is very useful for me.
