Call to the Pen: MLB All-Star Game T-Shirts: Selected Thoughts

Please click this internet hyperlink to read the entire post over at Call to the Pen

These are the best shirts because they are not true and are therefore extremely audacious. Anyone purchasing one of these T-shirts and wearing them will be unmistakably not a Major League baseball player, yet alone a Major League Baseball player skilled enough to be voted as an All-Star representative for either league. You see Clayton Kershaw over there? He’s but one example of a real life Major League All-Star who might comfortably wear this T-shirt. I’m not some condescending, high-nosed, cultured sports enthusiast, so I have no issue with the use of the word “We” in the slogan. What strikes me is the phrase “I Play for the National/American League.” No you don’t. You do not.
