After watching last week's Julius Peppers interception against the Minnesota Vikings, Fred Gillich – designer and owner of Too Much Metal – spontaneously yelled out, "‘Red Hot Julius Peppers’ for the touchdown!"
Immediately, Gillich decided that was a joke worth printing and voilá, the "Red Hot Julius Peppers" T-shirt is now available in home (green), away (white) and a retro green for women. The shirts cost $25.
They are available at Gillich's shop, The Too Much Metal Showroom – in the Marshall Building, 207 E. Buffalo St. – or online.
"For the last three years, I've been making alternative Packers shirts for the alternative sports fan," says Gillich. "There are a ton of people that don't identify with wearing a football jersey with a big number it. It's just not rock and roll. But we still love our Packers, so I'm showing my love for our team."
I’m one of those "alternative sports fans" for sure and one of my all time favorite T-shirts is another of Gillich’s creations, a Brewers shirt that looks more like a Motley Crue concert tee.
