    What is With This?









    Okay . . .  I'm just gonna say it. I don't get this whole TB 12 thing. Is this supposed to be some kind of individual marketing strategy Brady has unleashed upon us that I'm missing? The logo doesn't make the first bit of sense. It looks like it might be 73 . . .   or 13 . . . or T3 or . . .  I don't even know. Somebody help me out here. How is Brady making money off this? Are people buying these stupid hats? Do any of you have one? Have any of you seen one?

    Am I the only person who doesn't get this?

    I believe it's just his website logo. It is stupid looking.

    It almost makes me wish he went back to the Yankees hat.

    Maybe he is T3, the next Terminator?

    Re: What is With This?

    TB12 hats were on sale for a short time on his website.  He wore them to generate buzz, and all the proceeds went to charity.  Similar to the "Bearded Brothers" T-Shirt I bought that Mankins was selling for charity.  I can't find anywhere that sells them currently.

    Or maybe he'll switch to 6 (He can't wear his favorite player's number 16)when he goes to the 49ers next season. They way Pats' fans have been getting on him, it makes sense. His life is in San Fran, why not play for San Fran. They need a QB, too.

    Re: What is With This?

    I have no problem with him (or you, or me) wearing a cap that says whatever the wearer wants it to say. Millions of people wear Nike, Adidas or any of thousands of logos that are sewn into the garment forever. Tom Brady decided not to give to some random brand his personal and valuable marketing assistance.
    The Yankees cap was a bit nauseating, but TB 12 is his personal logo.

    So leave this alone. It's another thing that sets him apart from the in-your-face tactics of Indianapolis' lordgodalmighty.

    I'm sorry for the script crap that follows.

    In Response to Re: What is With This?:
    In Response to Re: What is With This? : I was just rereading this, and I trully realized how ridiculous I was sounding for awhile here.  Seriously, WhatTH was I thinking above?  I mean, sure your sportin' your toilet paper dispenser ball-cap, which the paper would do fine in terms of a certain bathroom "emergency" situation, Yet by simply adding a very easy pen attached by magnet to the hat, or even by string, We'd be increasing our dispenser usages 10 fold...  I already brainstormed selling part & just a small portion of each sectioned sectioned paper piece to web-pages for advertising at the bottom, So that'll be a huge factor in cutting overhead and the cost factor involved on gettin' this thing up and running, But wow, Don't know what I was thinkin' before leaving this idea out, weird.  I mean I'll just throw this out there as an add gimmick, but "How Many times do YOU desperately need a pen and small piece of paper to write down some thought or get a chicks digits?"  Ya know, probably like at least twice, but really not more than 3 X every 6-8 months, or just a tad longer, right?  So sheez, This ain't just an overall fashion coupe d'etat, This idea coupled with the pen (I might try to do a "gummy-version" of the pen, too), Is like bringing about an entire new system of thinking ALONG with it as well!  We're talking fashion + practical use = Nothing less than a complete revolution in human consciousness about how we view AND live our lives.  If anything, I probably understated that last part...

    I like it, you could have some sort of dry eraseboard material on the front and people could write in their own clever logo.  Like I was thinking I could write "*fart" on mine, and it would be much better than my other hat that says *fart.  Obviously this hat would be very susceptible to having p*nis's drawn on it when unguarded, so it is very risky.  I'm not sure if the world is ready for such innovation.  Or more likely somebody already invented it 20 years ago.

    In Response to Re: What is With This?:
    In Response to Re: What is With This? : You forgot shenanigan, On THIS hat if you could equally write *fart-, I *just farted-, or AND *I farted- 2X...  Ya see that old fart*- hat that you own where it's written as a logo, Just imho, Isn't always enough to fully detail where I'm at in a mindset.  Yet, those examples I provided, could and DO detail, at least my own present state 99.9% of the time.  Oh, also- The terrifying part is that I TOO thought about how this particular hat would really be subject to the potential "prank-factor" aspect.  Think placing a "kick Me" sign on someone's back, and multiply it be roughly 100 fold.  The only real difference is that instead of someone posting a "kick Me" sign on YOUR back, you simply started the process halfway by posting a blank page on your back.  But seriously, I know that sounds bad, but the respect I have for BOTH the overall maturity of greater mankind, coupled with the fact that 1 or 2 "Kick Me" signs posted EVER on you wearing that hat 24-7, will be vastly outweighed by the 1 or 2-HUNDRED phone numbers from hot chicks a person will be gettin' each and every DAY, after they see you donning something so stylish & with that kinda sex-appeal, right?
