When Fandom Goes Too Far: 10 Lame Things to Buy on Cubs.com

. Monday, October 13, 2008

Doing my commerce in the city, I tend to spend a lot of time around Cubs merchandise.

With all this team-licensed stuff floating around, a goodly amount of it is destined to be crap. And so, behold today's greatest finds:

"Dirt coin" sounds like two random words placed together. At the Cubs online store, it'll set you back $60. For dirt. I won't even point out that neither 1907's nor 1908's title took place at Wrigley. But it someone's dumb enough to buy dirt, I'm sure they're not checking for accuracy.

"Custom team photograph - for when your custom jersey just isn't douchey enough"

Child abuse!

Just like Daryle Ward wears

If you wear these, you deserve to get your feet caught in an escalator

Of course someone named Gene would buy this. Or Floyd, or Barry, or Carlton.

There are two things Alyssa Milano does well - acting and designing jorts. Wait, come to think of it, she doesn't do either of those things very well.

A satin jacket?!? Milano, you've hit it out of the park again!

"I love the long sleeve under short sleeve look, but I'm losing hours per year putting on two shirts. There's got to be a better way!" Well now there is, you lazy fuck!
