When the "Macho Man" Randy Savage died last week we talked a lot about wrestling, and how much these guys meant to my childhood. There is one moment from my youth that stands out more than any other. Andre The Giant had made an appearance on Piper's Pit with Bobby The Brain and challenged Hulk Hogan (and ripped off his shirt and chain). That was a memorable moment, but paled in comparison to the day they met with the President, Jack Tunney, and signed the contract. I still cannot fathom this level of betrayal...
I don't think that I've ever been more inspired in my life. It still gets me every time.
"You tore the heart and soul out of all the little Hulksters!"
"We're gonna get your attention, man!"
"You speak to me in English when you talk to me!!!"
"It's signed in blood!!!!!"
Makes me wanna run through a brick wall to this day. Nothing mattered more to me than this, nothing.

This whole shirt ordeal has been unbelievable. The idea that people are wearing these all over the nation now, that everyone from Bill Simmons to the lead singer of MGMT wear the shirt? It has all been overwhelming. Thank you so much to all of you that bought the shirts and told people where they could find them. Here is the latest installment of pics that have been sent in. Rome, Saudi Arabia, etc. Enjoy...

When we came out with the Tony Allen shirt, one of the first things that Tony said to me is that I needed to do a ZBo shirt. Zach then would ask me after almost every game when I was gonna make him a shirt. With a big assist from Zach and his tremendous agent Raymond Brothers, we have made it happen. The man deserves a shirt, the man gets a shirt. It is now available in our store (link above), and will be available for purchase before games outside FedEx Forum (starting Saturday). The logo is full color, so it costs a little more ($20). The slogan comes from his postgame comments after Game 6 of Spurs series. For our second act, I give you the Zach Randolph shirt...
