We realize in the sneaker game that people camp out for kicks. But never have I ever witnesses such a fervor for a t-shirt. Since we announced that we were going to have a bunch in the office sometime this week and wanted to share the wealth with our readers, our phones have been ringing off the hooks.
One girl from California just called to check in and then e-mailed me this:
I just spoke with you about 15 minutes ago. I don’t mean to be a bother, (too late huh?) but I wanted to make sure I gave you all the correct pertinent information to be added into the contest for the limited edition Nike Puppets 4 Rings and Carpe Diem T-Shirts Giveaway. I have made a million and 1 phone calls, as I am sure everyone else has trying to get their hands on these shirts. Foot Locker House of Hoops is sold out. Niketown doesn’t have any. The Nike customer service personnel show that there is “no availably” on these shirts. I know it’s a contest and the shirts aren’t going to the biggest fan or who has the greatest story. I have as much a chance as anyone else so please cross your fingers for me.
Apparently the shirt was available on the Lakers Official Online Store, but due to overwhelming demand has already sold out. Once we get ours, we will be running some sort of giveaway contest so don’t you worry. Just make sure to check back with us to find out how you can get yours…
Just out of curiousity, what would you do for one of these tees?
