Truth in Advertising, Part II: Of Bolsheviks and B-Ball

Bolsheviks 6
If newly transit-oriented, high-density, high-impact Reston were to ever get a professional sports team (which it wouldn't, on account of the lack of athletic facilities), would this be the logo? An online clothing manufacturer says... yes!

The company put together a humorous back story involving city council minutes, the Harlem Globetrotters, and... we dunno, stuff, but what we want to know is how a company based in Buffalo, N.Y., learned about our beloved earth-toned community's somewhat... communitarian ideals? Was it this homegrown T-shirt that clued them in?

We may never know. But for the low price of $30, you can show your hometown pride while wearing a DRB-scandalizing shade of crimson:

Who knows, maybe you could wear it while bowling ironically, the end.

    I'm guessing that the Convict, who seems to have some Russian blood, will be the first to order this T-shirt.

    If it wasn't so expensive at $30 a pop, I'd order one for myself to wear on Founder's Day or, better yet, at my polling place on Election Day.

  2. Yeah, considering the massive hike in RA dues, it would be either buy the T-Shirt or pay my Cluster dues.

    Besides, I kinda like the mythical Loudoun Hounds T-Shirt better. Not only is it cheaper, but Loudoun is more likely to get a minor league baseball team than Reston is to ever get any kind of minor league team, or even a much coveted Roller Derby venue.

    Herndon is for Cossacks.
