10/24/2005: Close (well, not that close), but no cigar....
A Slate column pointed me to an interesting clothing site: Jewish Fashion Conspiracy ("Putting the 'racy' back in conspiracy"). One of their products:
brought back a happy memory.
Back in the early '80s (late '70s to early '80s, to be precise), there toiled in the vinyards of The Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field a journeyman infielder by the name of Ivan DeJesus (his main claim to fame now is for serving as trade bait, heading to the Phillies in 1982 in return for Larry Bowa and Cubs legend (and Hall of Famer) Ryne Sandberg). One of my favorite pastimes in law school (I attended A Highly Overrated Law School In Chicago Which I Refuse To Name Here, though I have mentioned it in the past) was cutting class to attend baseball games at Wrigley Field. And one day, when attending a game at Wrigley, I saw one of the funniest t-shirts I've ever seen. It said: "Jews for DeJesus". Much better, IMHO, than "Jews for Jeter". But you just had to be there.....
Once again, alas, Google Images fails me, so instead of a picture of the "Jews for DeJesus" t-shirt, I'll just have to settle for this:
dating from when Ivan did a stint with the Cardinals in '85
