Judging from the number of other people in this thread who are saying that what this shirt makes them feel is sad, I'm not the only one who thinks this is not working.
Nah. I went to a small school, and I was the ONLY girl that got cut at cheerleading tryouts. So they created a third "alternate" position so as not to hurt my feelings. Fact is, I couldn't walk and clap my hands. I was ALWAYS picked last. ALWAYS. I remember always hoping, during picks, that maybe, just maybe "this time would be different" but it wasn't.
But now I am living a wildly successful life, with a man that loves me more than anything, two beautiful children (one of whom is always picked last), a gorgeous house on a huge tract of land, a brand new F150, and more blessings that I can count. So in the long run, "picked last" doesn't matter one bit. I am living proof of that. And I am getting this shirt because not only did it make me laugh out loud the second I saw it, it put things in perspective, and maybe I can do that for some other uncoordinated social misfit who doesn't think that it's "ever going to get any better."
Because it does.

Bought this, as like most everyone else who bought it, because I was usually last one picked in school for sports. The shirt arrived a few days later, and looked awesome in person. My only complaint is that for a 3XL, this is a very small 3XL. I bought one size larger for comfort and shrinkage, I am glad I did not get my regular size, as the shirt probably would not have fit.
Still love the shirt though.
