Big Ten divisions inspire unfortunate new shirt

Posted by Adam Jacobi

Yesterday, the Big Ten announced that its divisions were to be named (sigh) "Legends" and "Leaders," meeting nearly universal scorn and derision. There was also a new logo that wasn't very well received and 18 new postseason trophies, but those took a backseat to Legends and Leaders.

This type of empty boasting is nothing new to human nature, of course, and between things like the Washington Monument, the 25.5-inch neck of a Fender Stratocaster, and sending ballistic rockets flying toward their enemies, men often employ unsubtle boasts of a, shall we say, "overcompensating" nature.

That, then, is where we introduce this t-shirt, which cannot be inserted into this blog for reasons that will be immediately apparent upon sight. Yep. You, too, can be a leader where it counts and a legend where it counts with this shirt. Or, more accurately, you can tell people that you're each of those. From our experience, though, if you're really a "legend," you'll never have to do an ounce of advertising to that effect. Word of mouth, y'know?

Also, luckily, there is absolutely no way the term "Big Ten" can be used to make any similar juvenile reference. Nope. Not at all.
