What: cotton, navy blue with orange text
When: appropriated from younger brother, Craig
Where: Craig's room, Kalamazoo, MI
Why: Craig has been stealing my clothes for years. Years. Once, when I was home from college for Christmas, I walked into his room and saw this shirt. I decided that this would be the first, of many, that I'd steal back. The shirt's significance is a little unclear, unless you're from Michigan. There are these two Christian colleges, Hope and Calvin. There is a rivalry. Obviously, this shirt originated from Calvin College. In Michigan, people generally know what it means, outside of MI-totally ambiguous. This was no big deal until the start of Obama's campaign. I was once stopped in Park Slope (5th ave and 9th St) and asked if it was an anti-Obama shirt. I was also stopped on 5th Ave and 7th St (outside a bar called Jackie's 5th Amendment) by some creepy drunk guy who asked me, "Who's Hope? I'll beat'er." Despite this, I still wear the shirt.
