Will the shirts I bought there be "collector's items" one day? I've put all my Joe College gear away for framing.

Ever year if we make it to the Sweet 16, I take all the grands out for a new t-shirt or hoodie,depending on the weather.

I have never purchased so much as a single Jayhwak since the copyright issue.

Never isn't quite true: Back in the '70s I did buy a folk dance club t-shirt.

Never cared for Jayhawks: I've always thought they were hideous, not to mention being named after the premier domestic terrorists of the Kansas territorial era.

The closest I ever got was when I lived in Hashinger Hall in 1982. There might have been a Jayhawk on the parking permit.

Ever since they kidnapped and sold the beloved Jayhawk and enslaved him to corporate powers I have grieved. Ironic the symbol of fighting slavery is now permanently indentured. We are not allowed to use our own state symbol. I am pretty sure when they check for citizenship you will need a corporate ID.

I'll wait until I go to a 'sports' store out of town; they're usually cheaper there. I once got a really nice KU sweatshirt on clearance for $5 in Lincoln, Ne!

If you keep your eyes open, it's kinda like Christmas, a month or two after the seasons over there can be good deals on the 'left-overs'.

It is hard to beat the 4 KU t-shirts for $20 at GTM on 23rd Street (except one was in Missouri colors).

That was a GOOD deal BigPrune. This year I got all the grands covered(with a little something for myself) for less than $50!!

The Jayhawks make Lawrence the town that it is!!!!! Everyone in here needs to go out and buy themselves something special about our town.....a KU shirt!!!!

I bet you can get a free 2011 finale four t-shirt tonight out of the trash cans behind Walmart or Target, or at the homeless shelter where they where donated!!!

They'll go well with my "Dewey defeats Truman" collection.
