They are the future LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Kobe Bryant, they’re the future Harlem Globetrotters, they are the future… of swimming pool basketball. Oh, to be young and stupid.

200 Yard Golf Gong Shot

Major League Zombie

Major League Zombie

We’re pretty sure this isn’t official MLB merch, but this zombie-meets-baseball bat t-shirt hits it out of the park. Grab one quick – Teefury only has ’em until the end of the day (6/26).
