BustedTees.com - Jesus Hates the Yankees T-Shirt

But will he hate them when Steinbrenner offers him a bazillion dollar, 15-year contract this December?

See, snark works on the new BTF!

What a perfectly good waste of cotton.

<I>Yankees: LH closer Jesus Christ was placed on the 15-day disabled list with severe lacerations of the hands and feet. The Yankees had hoped Christ would be ready to pitch within three days, but that forecast turned out to be too optimistic, necessitating a roster move. </B>

I like the Shakespeare "Prose before Hos" shirt.

Would Jesus wear a Rawlings?

"Pedro Lacks Political Experience"

brilliant.

I think it was Archie Bunker who said "Even Jesus was a Jew, until his father told him enough of that." So, if Hey-Zeus had remained loyal to using Yiddish, would he be more in favor of a shirt like this?
   8. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: October 18, 2005 at 09:37 PM (#1691514)
Disgraceful. Just disgraceful.
   9. Psychedelic Red Pants Posted: October 18, 2005 at 09:47 PM (#1691543)
What about the "What wouldn't jesus do?" Tshirt, Gagne?
   10. Luca Posted: October 18, 2005 at 09:49 PM (#1691549)
Why would Jeter's son hate the Yankees?
   11. DCA Posted: October 18, 2005 at 09:58 PM (#1691570)
Disgraceful. Just disgraceful.

But would it still be disgraceful if it wasn't one of <u>your</u> teams that He was hating.
   12. Halofan Posted: October 18, 2005 at 10:23 PM (#1691623)
Jesus hates the Angels. Nope
Jesus hates the Cardinals. Anti-Catholic
Jesus hates the Mariners. Explains the Titanic
Jesus hates the Red Sox. Enforcemnet of a divine dress code
Jesus hates the Tigers. Plausible, as they are close to extinction throughout Asia.

WONDER if there would be any civil rights litigation over someone being forced to remove this shirt at a "family-friendly" ballpark - the right to religious expression being a little higher on the shelf than the right to self-expression.

Yes. It would be.

Jesus was a lefty? You learn something new everyday.
   15. JMM Posted: October 19, 2005 at 12:04 AM (#1691771)
Jesus was a lefty?

That is why Falwell and Roberton had him killed.

Seirously, I'm almost militantly agnostic and I think it's in pretty bad taste. It's not Jesus's fault that so many of his more public "advocates" are such demonfucks.
   16. AndrewJ Posted: October 19, 2005 at 12:41 AM (#1691816)
That's a pretty offensive shirt.

But not half as offensive as these.

I'm so glad Jesus is spending His time helping li'l Sparky there hit a changeup instead on focusing on such trivial matters like -- oh, I dunno, ending world famine, preventing Category 5 hurricanes, going back in time to stop the Holocaust...
   17. Шĥy Posted: October 19, 2005 at 12:49 AM (#1691820)
I like the description of the "I Gave My Word To Stop At Third" t-shirt.

I didn't see a vagina up-close until I was 18. Today, at 22, I've seen at least seven of them. My name is Jakob Lodwick, and I sell T-shirts.
   18. K'd by Charlie Brown Posted: October 19, 2005 at 01:12 AM (#1691843)
I believe Jesus was actually a catcher, who incidentally once hit a bases empty grand slam (Holy cow! It's a miracle!)...

Moses was the reliver, with a great pick off move: Thou shall not steal!
   19. GabeMartinez Posted: October 19, 2005 at 01:36 AM (#1691870)
The problem with all of those things is they all made Jesus White.......And we all know that was physically impossible being from the middle east and all.

Blasphemy.

I remember when they showed those on Conan. The kid tackling Jesus is the best.

This has been said here many, many times before, but it's quite clear that the Messiah was a closer: as we all know, Jesus saves.

Me too, that was great.

going back in time to stop the Holocaust

I wonder why Jesus isn't really keen on saving the people that had him NAILED TO A CRUCIFIX
   24. Phil Coorey. Posted: October 19, 2005 at 07:20 AM (#1692142)
Those shirts are pretty funny.

Actually, I always played either 2b or CF. Never was much of a pitcher.
   26. Gonfalon Bubble Posted: October 19, 2005 at 10:52 AM (#1692251)
I would like to hear Jesus give his Sermon on the Mound.

And I'd like to see Him finish a home run trot by stepping on home plate, and pointing at Himself.

I'm not so sure I'd like to hear the announcers describe his failed stolen base attempt: "And Jesus is nailed at second!"
   27. Шĥy Posted: October 19, 2005 at 11:07 AM (#1692252)
Past a dying Jesus!
   28. Slivers of Maranville descends into chaos (SdeB) Posted: October 19, 2005 at 07:05 PM (#1692923)
The funniest Jesus figurine is the one that has the little kid tackling Jesus.

Primey.
   30. The Bones McCoy of THT Posted: October 19, 2005 at 07:13 PM (#1692933)
But what do you do with a 12 man roster....especially with one guy who's about to go free agent?

Best Regards

And thanking himself during the interview after winning the World Series.

And Judas was a lousy agent. 30 miserable pieces of silver for the Son of God.

   33. The Bones McCoy of THT Posted: October 19, 2005 at 07:18 PM (#1692943)
Woud you have to refer to Jesus as "The" to differentiate him from "Chris"?

Best Regards

Of course rain delays could potentially become keg parties.

   35. The Bones McCoy of THT Posted: October 19, 2005 at 07:19 PM (#1692947)
Just think: no more DL. Pedro blew out his rotator cuff? No problem!

   36. The Bones McCoy of THT Posted: October 19, 2005 at 07:20 PM (#1692948)
He is the resurrection and the life; just called up from under the bushes--Babe Ruth!

I thought it was funny and not offensive in the least.

He could feed 5000 from a single box of popcorn.

Best Regards

John
   39. The Bones McCoy of THT Posted: October 19, 2005 at 07:22 PM (#1692951)
I doubt he'd play catcher. He'd end up crossing up the signs.

Yawn. Another day, another "let's mock Christianity" thread at BTF.

God is not without a twisted sense of humour. Look no further than cats, small children and Red Sox fans.

This is funny at so many levels.

Then again it might be the beer.

RDF.

Things go awry, though, when he transforms the chalklines, but he makes up for it with the grass.
   45. The definitely immoral Eric Enders Posted: October 20, 2005 at 12:11 AM (#1693494)
You know, I first read #42 about six hours ago when it was originally posted. And only now do I finally get the joke. Sheesh.
   46. Captain Joe Bivens, Elderly Northeastern Jew Posted: October 20, 2005 at 12:27 PM (#1694149)
Evidently, #42 showed an unusually subtle side of me.

The Robert E. Lee shirt is clever.

The Jesus statues are always good of occasional entertainment. It's nice that the maker at least gave Jesus ice skates for hockey. However, if I have to take a personal savior, I want my sins to be washed away by a divine person who is smart enough not to wear sandals when they go skiing or run in a track & field event.
   49. The Bones McCoy of THT Posted: October 20, 2005 at 01:07 PM (#1694179)
It's gotta be the sandals.

Best Regards

John
