No Redknapp. Sorry if you want an apology, congrats if you don’t.

Hey, people!

Consider yourselves lucky or unlucky, but I didn’t get around to watching I’m a Celebrity last night. Your ramble will be short and comes courtesy of the Tottenham Hotspur shop.

Ramble of the Day

I was at Red Bull Arena watching the New York Red Bulls getting eliminated from the playoffs last night, and after writing something about that, it’s 1:19 in the morning. I’ll throw you something Skipjack told me would work for a ramble, and he’s honestly right. Just look at this thing!

This is a HORRIBLE design. Horrible. But...this is also an amazing shirt, isn’t it? I kind of want it. I almost never want to own bad things; I don’t mind dedicating hours of my time to bad things (this might not be a good idea, but I don’t mind), but having a genuinely awful thing in your possession is very different. This is a uniquely bad thing, though, and maybe that makes it worth owning.

I hope people buy this shirt. I really do. I want to see what other shenanigans the designers of this shirt get into if they make a lot of money off of this. I feel like they might be able to expand their business, too, into ugly apparel for everyone. I don’t know why that would be a success; I don’t think there’s a market for that many poorly designed clothes. It would be a little bit cool.

No one is going to buy this shirt. I actually don’t think I want it. Please don’t buy this for me for Christmas, anyone. They better not put this on a 90% discount at some point. I might not be able to resist the urge to impulse shop, even though a local newscaster told people not to do that before Cyber Monday. I feel like it’s none of her business if anyone impulse shops. (I don’t really impulse shop — I think the last thing I bought on impulse was an Atlético Madrid t-shirt after I had decided to not buy it and left the store, only to return about an hour later. That doesn’t really count as impulse, does it?)

GO. TO. SLEEP. This probably isn’t coherent. Good morning/night/goodbye!

tl;dr: This is...a ramble!
