Shmi loves the shirts! (And that really IS what she said.) by Henrik Meng - 12 months ago
"My friend Lakshmi plays on Fury, a club women's Ultimate Frisbee team's won the National Championship seven years in a row (2006-2012), and has represented the USA at seven World Championships (2000, 2002, 2004, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012) winning Gold in 2008 and 2010. This year Worlds was in Sakai, Japan. One day, my friend Matt was chatting with a group of Furies, when one of them said, totally unironically, "That's what Shmi said." That night at dinner, Matt related the story to a few of us, and we laughed for like 10 minutes straight and decided we had to make shirtsâ€”so I did! I even put the Fury logo on the backs. Of course, Shmi had no idea. I run an Ultimate Winter League in San Francisco, and chose to unveil the shirts one night recently when Shmi was playing, and she totally loved them! Needless to say, we had to take a pic. Working with CustomInk's website to create and print the shirts was super easy and made the whole process simple and, dare I say, fun! Haha, my only regret is that I should've known how popular the shirts would be and ordered more. Oh well, next time! :)"
