LA TOURISM BOARD:The Phoenix Coyotes come into town having beat the LA Kings twice in three games this season. The Coyotes are tied with the Dallas Stars in the Wild CaOH WHO CARES THE COYOTES ARE LITERALLY THE MOST BORING TEAM IN THE NHL!!!
Instead, we are going to celebrate St. Patrick's Day by looking at the Top 5 Worst St. Patrick's Day Themed T-Shirts from something called Rinky Apparel.
#5) LA Kings "Green Rinky"
Could you imagine anything more embarrassing than being caught in that t-shirt?
Oh, I stand corrected. Seriously, who are the 9 people that liked this?
#4) Philadelphia Flyers "Puck of the Irish"
I have no idea what this means.
#3) San Jose Sharks Green Shirt
Here's a green shirt with the Sharks logo on it. Because we aren't even trying.
#2) Rinky Apparel's "Team vs Team" Campaign
There is nothing magically delicious about the way the Flyers have played this season.
HAHA the Capitals also get zero respect in Rinky Apparel's world.
I don't understand why this woman isn't in the Sharks green shirt from #3.
And also why Rinky Apparel posted this match-up today when the Sharks don't play the Kings.
I know it's not St. Patrick's Day related but it's still awful.
#1) Carolina Hurricanes "Lucky Charm"
I'll just let Isabella Raye respond to this t-shirt design below:
"Actually, it's called a mock up" is my new favorite comeback.
Apparently, you can buy these Rinky Apparel designs at the Team LA store tonight at Staples. But I can't wait to buy this instead:
