Seems like we've had a lot of text-central designs lately.

Distressing, for when shirts are printed too sturdy to get the worn look on their own!

This is a perfect gym shirt for me. While I'm wheezing on an elliptical, next to someone running full out for an hour.

3 decades ago, when the University computer stuck us together randomly in the same suite, it was just fate. It took a little digging for us all to figure out what we all had in common: WE WERE THE SUITE THAT WAS (EACH) PICKED LAST FOR GYM CLASS.
True story. And, we are all still best friends and still laugh about this fact to this day!!!
In for 3, and will have to have DH be in for 3 more so we can all have one!!!!

I like the shirt, just wondering if wearing it will help me get picked sooner -or- guarantee me being last pick.

Hey Wooters! Very excited here to have my latest Woot design featured. I think this is my lucky number 7th! This one is forged from painful childhood memories and humility. Wear it to little league games, the gym, or on the golf course; But most importantly, wear it proudly!

Hoping for a reverse psychology effect here, or maybe at least inspire a little guilt from the team captains.

Is there a reason why a shirt celebrating that no one wanted you to play on their team is funny?

If I had my way, sports would require dice with more than four sides. That way, I'd never be picked last again.

This was an instant purchase.

That hurts... a little bit. In the heart.
Possibly in for one.

I am a fat woman who used to do standup; I did a very successful piece (drama, but I got laughs) last week. I know funny, and I know self deprecating ... and I know the perceived advantage of beating yourself up before the bullies get a chance to.

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.

As one of the "Always picked last" I will admit it was in some way my own fault. I would be way out in no man's land where I could safely read a book and not worry about the ball coming my way. I showed up for gym but while my classmates wanted to play I did not.
I like this shirt

We'll have to agree to disagree here. I laughed immediately when I read the shirt and see it as more of a parody of the XXL (insert school here) T-shirts that gym rats buy to look more legit. First shirt I'm considering buying in a long time.

Finally a shirt that will help draw the gym babes! Too bad there's no overnight ship option.

This shirt made me laugh out loud. As one of the always picked last kids (me and the fat kid) I totally own my 90lb weakling status and will shout it from my wimpy chest every time I wear this to the gym.

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.

Thank you! You are exactly who I designed this shirt for and you expressed my intended artistic sentiments beautifully. Getting picked last was one of the less painful things about my childhood, but I couldn't be a happier more fulfilled person today. This shirt is for anyone who has overcome their childhood traumas and succeeded despite them.

I've got to side with notsomuch here. I was always picked last, which had less to do with my perceived lack of athletic ability and much more to do with my inability to deal with being the new kid in school. I ended up kicking arse in one of the most athletic careers available.

My first post (and perhaps a lot of the comments here) are also examples of... aww, never mind.

This is the first shirt in a long time that has drawn me back twice more to look at it, and I suspect I'll be clicking the stupidly large button before I finish my coffee. Nicely done, dbenton25!

A very well fitting shirt.

I want to add to the "is it funny?" debate.

Not only was I picked last, but I was in 'special' gym (adaptive PE). I think the shirt is funny. I often make fun of my lousy depth perception and lack of motor skills. While I might suck at sports, I have many other great talents and skills.

This shirt should only come in xs and xxl+.

I, too, was always last. I still love me.

I'm in for two. The moment I saw this shirt I flashed back to Jr High and my best friend Annie and I in gym class. Annie was the last one chosen--I was never even chosen. It was like I didn't even exist! It would come down to Annie and me, the team choosing would say "Annie" in a disgusted tone of voice and everyone on both teams would just pivot and walk off as Annie and I followed. Annie's team didn't let her actually play but at least they didn't completely ignore her. The team I was supposed to on by default acted like I was invisible. I look at this shirt as a healing badge of honor. Seriously part of the problem is that school gym classes focus on team sports and activities that that strength and favors sprinters. If my school had had martial arts or hiking or fencing or other lifetime sports, I could have redeemed myself physically. I will proudly wear this shirt to my Tai Chi class and for hiking. The second shirt is of course, for Annie.

Umm ... a die has six sides. The top and bottom count as sides. (The fact that I know this confirms that I was always picked last.)

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.
