Selling An Attitude, Not Just A Tee-Shirt

This is my friend David Root wearing a Geezer Jock tee-shirt in Spain. It is the dark heather grey. This photo was taken a year ago and Dave has worn it all over the world (Spain, Italy, Indiana, among other places). Dave says lettering is quite worn and is buying another.

I still have run across just one person who objects to the name, Geezer Jock.

Everyone else is fine with the slap back against ageism.

When I wear this tee-shirt it causes a smile from people who see it. Sometimes I will be stopped and a breathless stranger will say, "How do I get one of those tee-shirts?"

It says a lot about how we roll. 

So I'm selling the tee-shirts.

I have been a freelance sportswriter for 32 years and have sold stories to many newspapers and web sites all over the world. If my phone wasn't ringing with assignments from editors, I had to pick up the phone and sell ideas.

I always lived by this:

"If you are not buying what I'm selling, it's my fault, not yours."

It's my fault this heather grey tee-shirt is not selling out because I won't price it at $1. It's $20 and you can buy with "Geezer Jock" or "Be Unstoppable" emblazoned across the front. This tee-shirt is soft and does not wrinkle and fits well.

"It's the best tee-shirt I have," said Dave, who is assuredly not being paid for his comment.

The tee-shirt is a real value. The white tee is not as soft and the manufacturer does not offer an explanation. But I have both and the white is just fine.

There is other merch available, too.

 

 

This is another friend named Dave. Dave Wilkes is ...well...you know where he is.
