Good deals and dopey decisions

There’s a 50% off deal going on at online vendor Fathead’s website where you can get the Nationals logo in a 4-foot by 3 foot removable wall-sticker when you buy some other full-priced Fathead thing. (Okay, you can get any MLB logo but why would you want any of the others?) Their website has kind of a cool feature where you can see what the Nats logo your selected MLB logo will look like in a bedroom, office, game room or den. It’s just a little auto-compositing where they overlay it on a stock image, but it’s still nifty.

Well, the tech is nifty. The selection of images for sample bedrooms is a little less than brilliant, however, since the kid sitting in the room and looking up at the logo is wearing an A’s sweatshirt. I can only imagine he’s looking up there and thinking “Wait, who? I’ve never seen any of those games on tv…”

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  1. Oops, you’re right – that’s not the A’s A, but why would someone wear a shirt with a big ass letter on it if it doesn’t represent some team or they aren’t the last son of a dying world and using their superpowers to keep mankind safe?

    That looks closest to the Arizona Wildcats, going by the logos on the Fathead site, but maybe it’s just a knockoff. Which would just add to the humor in my book…
