Do I have to buy this if I live in SD? *giggles*



Don't forget from the Shirt description:

Wear this shirt: anywhere but San Diego, where you’ll want the variant that says “here.”

This is the first shirt ever that almost had me pressing the button. But it was in cranberry, so I didn't.

Also, amused by the condition 'lost and found'.

Seriously...this is not summer weather. But then again, we San Diegans are put off by 60 degree weather.

Awesome shirt though!

You guys are all thinking about Rockapella.

I'm a huge a cappella fan. I saw them live in concert two years ago for my friend's birthday. They're amazing.

And, of course, every show they HAVE to do the Carmen Sandiego theme song.

And yes, the main vocalist is still the blonde dude: Scott Leonard.

By "the dots on the paper you tear off," I think you're describing tractor-feed paper. That would be back in the days of dot-matrix printers and daisy-wheel printers. I've owned both in my life, and paid for them myself (as opposed to my parents)...so I guess that pretty much dates me.

It's a shame there is so much 'speculation' and bitterness over the winners of this derby. Congratulations nonetheless!

It is great and I'd buy it if I wasn't over my month's spending for shirts... still great job!

P.S. I've heard the saying before, but I forget where... still I doubt it was already on a t-shirt, so good thinking!

Loved that show in the early '90s! Was it also on NES or SNES?



I had it for NES

I used to play Oregon Trail in 3rd grade and I used to name my family things like cholera, broken arm and snake bite. It was always funny when members of my family died and it would say snake bite has died from cholera. Every once in a while I'd get lucky and snake bite would die from snake bite. Brilliant!

Had what? The game? Not everyone had computers. This shirt? I hope not; the premise of woot is that it hasn't been done before. ^_~

Congrats to the artist on a quick climb to the top.

Nice design - good color selections (although I agree that Blue and Gold San Diego Charger colors would have looked nice as well). Even though it is NOT a slogan in the truest sense of the word, it definitely demonstrated a clear link to the PC games and TV series "Where in the World (or other places) is Carmen Sandiego?" and I believe it met the criteria for the Derby. For many who spent their youth in the 90s, this one will hit home.

In for 1!!!

Not really for me, but I will be snagging one for my GF. She was a big fan of Carmen San Diego as a kid, so the shirt will make a nice little bonus birthday gift for her this summer.

I had to get this shirt. I loved the game and the game show. But of course now I have the darn theme song stuck in my head from the game show...yeah, i know i loved it. This is making me all nostalgic to go loot my parents software case....for some reason i doubt Carmen Sandiego is compatible with XP though.

Having just moved to San Diego and being an avid fan of the game and show, I had to get one. My first woot, actually :o

...it felt good.

You know...I was never a t-shirt wearer before...in fact, w00t has YET to make one that will fit over my upper frontals and not be gigantic the rest of the way down...

However, I'm becoming a t-shirt addict, thanks to you, w00t! I wear them to bed, since it doesn't matter if they're gigantic on the bottom when I'm sleeping...

I hate you, w00t.

Love,

kippyj

P.S. Yes, I bought one...duh!

Wait until you see how good it feels to be better than everyone else, as decreed by w00t. You're in for a real treat!

Cranberry color shirt is my favorite, but I am not into text only shirts. However, today's is pretty cute, I must say. And the font rendering is very well done. Nevertheless, I'll pass.

Ya, I'm having that San Diego resident debate, but I'm having two issues with this: 1. I'm only old enough to remember the original PC game and not the resulting cartoon, and game show, ( meaning I was past the age of having interest in the franchise) and 2. Cranberry. Ugh. Really?

Maybe if they made a “Where in the World is Matt Lauer” T-shirt...
