THE EARLE OF MESH
State Line T-Shirts

With the Dubcast on a summer schedule, we've been running caption contests on Fridays, handing out t-shirts to particularly clever entries.

That's fine and all -- and we've shared many lulz, but do you know what's even better? Handing out shirts that we don't have to pay for.

Luckily, the fine folks at State Line have offered to hand out two of their signature Ohio pocket tees to the two wittiest captions for the above photo of Earle Bruce and his Get Mesh Crew.

Handmade by Ohioans for Ohioans, these shirts feature the jewel of the Northwest Territory stitched into a bullet-stopper over the heart that also doubles as a pocket. Did we mention that the shirt would be part of a limited run of 500?

Good luck! The contest closes on Sunday at midnight ET.

Son, you've got enough sweat in that undercarriage to irrigate a small radish farm.

Rock-paper-scissors to see who gets to help me get rid of the ol' camel tail here. Straight up the middle. Three yards and a cloud of dust for the old man...

Ok...let's try this again...38 sweep and Keith when you get to the goddamned 30 yard line, kick your shoe off and cut in toward the post.  On 3!!  How hard can this be???

I'd like to know who won last week's caption contest? Obviously it wasn't me.

The idea for the movie Forrest Gump actually came from Earle Bruce's strategy to only recruit kids with leg braces to play football. Somehow it worked, and, as you can see by the picture above, those players were to Earle as Jenny was to Forrest.

OMG! ROFL!!!!!

+100 for you 79! Pissed I didn't think of that.

Maybe Fickell can try that with our running backs, but "Run Roderick, Run!" just doesn't have the same cachet.

Um...I'm sorry, it's the...it's the pleats. Mm. It's actually an optical illusion. It's the pattern on the pants. It's not flattering in the crotchal region. I'm actually taking them back right now. Taking them back to the pants store. Well I'm gonna go walk it off. Don't act like you're not impressed!
