You're Never Fully Dressed Without Six Shirts
Sun., Jul. 16. 2006 5:10pm EDT
If you've been to a few ApologetiX concerts (or even just one), you've probably noticed that ApologetiX lead singer J. Jackson goes through a lot of shirts! J. often wears shirts in concert that feature a particular venue's local professional and/or collegiate sports teams or other attractions.
Minnesota ApologetiX fan Doug Mathison noticed that and did something about it. Doug just happens to be an account executive for VF Activewear, a division of VF Imagewear in Zimmerman MN, and he sent J. six awesome shirts featuring the logos and emblems of the Minnesota Twins, Vikings, and Wild to wear at Sonshine '06 in Willmar MN on July 15.
Doug didn't ask us to mention his company and their website, but we will anyway. Here's the link:
It's a good thing Doug sent six of them, too. Not only did J. go through three of them in the outdoor, hot-and-humid 45-minute set, he sweated through a fourth one signing autographs afterward and then got ketchup on the fifth one. He needed the sixth one just to make it back to the hotel. :)
If ApologetiX is coming to your area and you have a local sports team, attraction, school or youth group you'd like us to promote, you're welcome to send shirts to us in advance. J. says he'll try to wear them as long as:
1. they fit (2X is preferable -- he IS 6'6" after all -- but XL works, too)
2. he has time to wear them in addition to the other stuff he's planning to wear
3. they're clean
4. they don't feature objectionable material
5. you don't need them back
6. we get them in time before we leave for that week's concerts.
Please send them to:
1343 Davis Ave.
Pittsburgh PA 15212-1977
Thanks! Speaking of shirts, did we mention that both Enter Samson and ApologetiX shirts are once again available in our online store?
