I'm in. Just don't tell my wife - she doesn't think I need any more t-shirts (and she's right :P).

Instead of Viva la Octolution, to properly follow the Spanish I would propose "Viva la octolución".

Exactly. Spanish -ción = English -tion.

I too love the octopus-in-hand with the slogan. Great work, Matt. If I can find a picture of Al looking up and to the side like in the Che portrait, I'll send it along.

Love 'em...especially the Viva la Octolution (or cion, whatever), and the fist with the octopus. I'd probably end up making a request for a women's shirt, but yeah, I'd buy one!

I've added the "Octolucion" version and also added this one (both are awaiting approval. When/if that comes I'll add them to the store:

I wanted a Rage Against The Machine image for Know Your Enemy, but I couldn't find anything suitable with a quick google images search.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Mot Seger = to Victory
framåt till seger = forward to victory
vidare till seger = In addition to victory

I personally asked Swedish people and "Onward to Victory" is "Mot Seger". The way Matt has it is the literal word for word spelling for "Onward to Victory" and is not how they say it in Sweden or Swedish. It's like we would translate "Солнце Желты" to "The yellow sun" instead of "Sun yellow".

Asked my swedish friend and he said that "Mot seger" works but is not really something a swede would say. Probably best to go with another phrase or just the original spanish one.

Matt,
Your t-shirt designs are great, I have two of them - but you need to print them on higher quality and better cut shirts. I never wear mine because they're so baggie all around.

Matt,

I don't physically print them myself -- I use Spreadshirt, which is immensely popular and the same company that manufactures the t-shirts for SnorgTees (if memory serves correctly, and other shirt sites such as this). I own a few of the shirts I've designed myself as well and have been immensely happy with the print and the finish (it's light-years beyond the product that I received when I previously sold my designs on CafePress.com). They've done a fantastic job in completing orders quickly and efficiently to not only customers in the US and Canada but also fulfilling orders as far away as Australia, England, Estonia, and Denmark, among others.

Each product page comes with a sizing chart so you can purchase the right size for your body type and there are plenty of different clothing styles offered and available by request.

____

As an aside... it is always amazingly cool to see how popular the "Feed the Mule" shirts have been over the last three years. I remember going to Game 5 of the 2009 Cup Final and seeing no fewer than four of them just from where I was sitting in the stands!

Those are cool. I think I like the fist with white octopus design without the phrase. Would it be possible to put hockeytown on the back or a sleeve? Or is that copyright protected?

Sorry I musta missed the thread with the "Don't Tread on Me" idea. What'd they look like? I'd definitely be interested in one.
