I still like you Cubs' Fans

A little old - but I've seen the shirts, the posts about the shirts, and really - who in their right mind does this?

Much has been made of a racist t-shirt sold by a souvenir stand outside of Wrigley Field that specializes in unlicensed Chicago Cubs merchandise. The shirt depicts the Cubs cartoon bear face on the front with slanted eyes and Harry Caray-style glasses. This image is surrounded by the words ”Horry Kow,” which are written in a “Japanese-style” font. The name and number of Cubs right fielder Kosuke Fukudome are on the back of the shirt. (For a picture of the shirt, click here.)

The phrase "get a real job" comes to mind.
