Some images just speak for themselves, and this one speaks volumes.
This photo of cases of what are (we assume) now useless ‘Auburn Tigers National Champs’ t-shirts is making the rounds on Facebook, and Alabama fans will be sharing it all day.
Sports apparel manufacturers get ready for a big game like last night’s BCS Championship by printing shirts well ahead of the game. Academy Sports, a sports retailer based in San Antonio, TX, no doubt had cases of t-shirts ready for fans of whichever team won Monday night’s game.
No doubt Auburn fans would have stormed sporting goods stores across the state to pick up their ‘BCS National Champs’ gear had the Tigers been able to hold onto their big lead against the Seminoles.
Now, the shirts are likely headed for some third-world country, where they can do some good for people that – like most college football fans – have no idea where Auburn University is located.
