Breaking Down the Presidential Swing States From a T-shirt Perspective

October 23, 2012

Breaking Down the Presidential Swing States from a T-shirt Perspective

I write this on the evening of the final Presidential Debate. This is clearly a biased opinion but this debate would be a lot cooler if the former Governor of Massachusetts was wearing a Boston Accents T-shirt and the President was sporting a Cocksville Blockers awesome t-shirt. Now we’re talking! Okay, I’m awake from my dream now. We don’t get political here, we just want to have fun but there are some key swing states that will ultimately decide this upcoming presidential election. Many of those swing states share a common theme and that’s the coolest t-shirts out there from Awesome Sports Logos!

Florida

We still need to get to that “Florida Hangin’ Chads” t-shirt but for now we offer two funny t-shirts.

The Boca Raton Cougars. Grrrr, those Cougars are dangerous.

 

The Dade City Kumquats.

I think we might have to hit the Kumquat festival in Dade City this January to sell some of these t-shirts. I love the name and everything about this logo. 

Iowa

How sweet would it have been to see one of the candidates riding the streets of Decorah on a float sporting this funny t-shirt for the yearly Nordic Fest? We wanted to create a logo that depicted this awesome event and a troll playing baseball and using his club instead of a bat really fit what we were looking for. Similar to Dade City, I can’t wait to take Awesome Sports Logos on the road to Decorah!
Nevada

Okay, quick tip as a former resident of this state. It’s pronounced Neh-Vad-ah, not Nah-Vad-ah. You pronounce this right when visiting and they’ll think you’re a local. That’s the first thing I learned. Tip number two, if you’re visiting Las Vegas, pull up a map on your smart phone and tell your cab driver to take streets like Koval and Russell or Desert Inn. Don’t get on the strip with your cab driver! The only thing spinning won’t be the slot machines; it will be your meter. Nevada is due for another t-shirt design from us in the near future. For now, we offer the Las Vegas Snake Eyes.

I will never understand why a pro sports team didn’t use this. I had one person tell me that Snake Eyes are bad luck when you gamble. Yes, it’s the t-shirt that’s making you lose all of your money and building those gorgeous buildings.
Ohio

Ohio may be the swing state that ultimately decides this election. One of the biggest topics in this presidential campaign is the economy and jobs. This is huge in Akron, Ohio which is considered the tire capitol of the United States. Goodyear is based in Akron which is the fifth largest city in Ohio. Other nicknames for Akron are “The Rubber City” and the “Rubber Capitol of the World”. Therefore, if either candidate wants to get some serious mojo going in Ohio these last few days, they should proudly wear one of our best sellers, The Akron Rubbers!

 

Virginia

Let’s just say that this unincorporated community in Virginia doesn’t really have enough votes to make a difference. I don’t even know if they have enough people to even call itself a community? Sorry Climax, the legalization of moonshining isn’t one of the major issues of this campaign. However, you receive huge bonus points for naming your community Climax and for having a yearly fiddle festival. Who doesn’t love that? Here is the Climax Fiddlers!

We left out swing states Colorado, New Hampshire and Wisconsin because we haven’t had enough time to come up with some cool t-shirt names in these states. Give us time people, we’ll get there soon. So, if you’re asking for my political opinion or who’s going to win, I plead the 5th. Some may read this expecting a serious article on swing states. My reply, this is serious, we’re talking t-shirts here. Let’s be honest, if you told the candidates instead of suits they could only wear their favorite t-shirt that would show a lot wouldn’t it?  A little more than a blue tie or a red tie, that’s for sure.

As always, thanks for reading. You guys rock and I appreciate all of the love and support for Awesome Sports Logos.

Sincerely,
