Subbuteo T-Shirt – Now that’s my kind of sporting activity!
June 18, 2012 § Leave a comment
This Subbuteo T-Shirt represents my ideal of sport. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy watching sport as much as the next man, but when it comes to playing, I’m carrying a little too much weight these days to try anything other than Sumo Wrestling or… nope, that’s about it.
If you didn’t grow up with Subbuteo, you missed out. Flicking those little guys around a green mat in a cardboard stadium you’d built yourself from cereal boxes was a lot of fun. You had to be really good at flicking stuff, and if it hadn’t have been for Subbuteo teaching me this life skill, I’d be all the poorer for it. I can’t say I’ve played it for years, but I wouldn’t mind giving it a go again. As the European Championships are in full swing right now, I thought I should review a football tee – even if it’s a table football tee. I think this looks great, incorporating the image of the little man into a badge that makes it look like an actual football club is a spiffing idea. Besides, the only other football-themed tees I could find were hopelessly patriotic verging on nationalistic. This is a nice, light-hearted change that’ll make your friends smile.
The kudos for this t-shirt goes to Subbuteo Shirts and this particular tee comes to you from Cafe Press. It comes in three neutral shades and six sizes, with S – XL costing £16.50 (it’s on sale at the moment) with two larger sizes at £19.00. So grab yourself the tee, find a box of subbuteo on ebay and get flicking! If you’re like me, you’ll class it as a sport.
