"historical event" doesn't just mean it happened some time in history. if this shirt were ok then you would have to allow something like a Frankenstein reference as long a there were a book shaped background to it.
If you had a Franken-bunny, I wouldn't see a problem with that. Famous book/TV/Movie dates can be significant dates in history and would fit the derby theme. I'm pretty new here, but it just seems like folks are nit picking for it's own sake now. The last month or so, I have seen themes stretched a lot farther than this guy/girl has done.
Are you arguing that the creation of Star Trek isn't historical? The writer a ways up this discussion pointed out some ways it was, and as Sci-Fi and pop culture go, it was a watershed moment.
Reading through some of the design discussions, I wonder if people wouldn't be a lot better off praising the stuff they like and biting their lips when they don't like a design, for whatever reason.
