Last week, we asked you to send us your "anti-Cubs" slogans. We promised to create a T-shirt before this weekend's Brewers homestand against the Cubs. We have delivered, and it's all thanks to you, our loyal and passionate Milwaukee readers!
We were inundated with ideas -- some fun, many funny and a few too funny for print.
We had so many that we chose two winners: one PG-rated and one PG-13.
Congratulations to Matt Reynolds and Chad Fuller. They will each receive a first-run OnMilwaukee.com T-shirt, and of course, all the fame and exposure that comes with the exposure in this blog!
Reynolds, who has made his own anti-Cubs shirts, took top prize with a simple, but effective: "Go Cubs Go" in big letters and "Take your fans with you" in smaller print. We liked its simplicity. As for Fuller's, it's a joke with much more text. We loved it, too, but if you want to see the rated PG-13 one, you must go to Karma. Sorry, we're a family friendly media company. Here's a hint, though. It's a joke involving a cactus and Wrigley Field.
To get one of these limited edition T-shirts for the weekend, we've arranged for you to purchase them at Karma Bar & Grill, 600 E. Ogden Ave., on Friday from 5-7 p.m.
Once there, you can take Karma's shuttle to the game at 6:15 or 7 p.m. and you can also enjoy the two-for-one Happy Hour from 3 to 7 p.m.
If you want us to reserve a shirt for you at Karma, please e-mail your name and preferred size by 5 p.m. on Thursday at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Either way, you'll get a special price of only $12 each.
And don't worry, they'll also be available for purchase online at our store on Friday if you want yours for a future date.

Wow....must say I'm disappointed with the top two. I've actually seen them somewhere before here. Nothing original, new, funny?
Unoriginal. Price's Sportscards at Southridge has been selling these shirts for years.
One of my friends had made her own one of these last year and everyone thought she was a cubs fan. I am a cubs fan so I didn't mind. But I doubt she'll wear that shirt again.

Too much like a Cubs fan shirt...
Unless you're standing next to someone, you'll be easily mistaken as a real Cubs fan, and that's a good reason to get peanuts thrown at you.
