Steeler Super Bowl T-Shirts Headed Overseas



Zambia. Nicaragua. Romania. Armenia. These are the places you will have to travel to if you're looking for a phantom Pittsburgh Steelers championship piece of apparel.

World Vision has received clothing from the NFL and sporting goods stores for the past 15 years that was ready for sale if the runner-up in football's big game had actually won. This year, they will be receiving t-shirts, hats, and towels, and cold-weather countries will be receiving sweatshirts. World Vision usually receives about $2 million worth of apparel after each big game, which goes to show you how much apparel makers must be making if they can build in that kind of hit to their bottom line.

I must say, I know this is a fantastic way to put these shirts to good use, but on some level...this hurts.

This has only been going on for the past 15 yrs? What? They didn't want to flood these countries with Buffalo Bills shirts? Hey, the Bills might be willing to move the team to Nicaragua next year, you never know!

The Bills are bringing out new uniforms next* season. They can send the abominations they currently wear overseas too.
