Get your Sabanade shirts

Posted by Tom Fornelli

We've all got one somewhere in our closet.  A t-shirt that we love but we don't really wear anymore because it's old and ratty, with more than a few stains on it and though it doesn't bother us, our wives or girlfriends aren't exactly the biggest fans.  In fact, they've tried to throw the shirt out every time we've had our backs turned.

It's an endless struggle, and one that will only end in tears and possibly incriminating text messages.  Luckily for the men of Tuscaloosa and Crimson Tide fans everywhere, there is finally a solution.  The lady doesn't like your old, stained shirt?  How about a shirt that comes with the stain already on it?

Robert Holt and his wife Linda have come up with a shirt that celebrates what they believe is the seminal moment of Alabama 's national championship last season: Nick Saban taking a Gatorade bath .

"Saban getting splashed! That's it! I've come up with a great idea," Robert Holt said.  "I'll call it Sabanade, replica shirt with the stain front and back."

Huntsville natives, Robert Holt and his mother, Linda Holt, we're required to get the shirts approved by Saban since they were using the likeness of his name.

"Coach Saban generally only approves three things a year," Holt said.  "When I first spoke to [his wife] Terry Saban she loved it.  She thought it was the most unique idea ever."

Yes, the shirt comes with a giant red stain already on it, so feel free to spill as much food or drink on it as you like while sitting on the couch and watching the Tide roll.  Also, unlike that Chris Rainey shirt Tennessee fans are no doubt jumping all over, this one is approved by Saban so you can actually go online to buy it at Sabanade.com.

Even better, the shirts cost $22 and portions of the proceeds from every shirt go to Nick and Terry Saban's charity, Nick's Kids.
