    We must have written 100 blogs about KU Bucket T-Shirts last year. What happened? With tickets going on sale tomorrow for two games at a total price of $50 go at 10 a.m., many of us on this site will be in the seats to watch our new and improved Jayhawks take on the Canadian WUG team in two exhibitions on the 23rd and 26nd of June at the Sprint.


    We can all keep our anonymity or we can proudly say hi to each other as we get a beer at the Sprint Center next month OR do nothing.


    Any thoughts.

  • Go for it!

  • I promised to order some for approximity (a different design) and had a series of obstacles, and long story short I completely dropped the ball.

  • Thanks for bringing it all up.

    Let’s kick this in high gear and get it done. We had 3 or 4 really nice designs on here and we stopped short because someone was worried about copyright. We have nothing to worry about. If anyone thinks it is a problem, then I’ll take responsibility and put them on something like cafepress for a limited time offer. This is not a commercial endeavor, so there will not be an issue with the University.

    We could have a blast meeting up somewhere and all wearing the same shirt. Then… let’s give a cut off time for everyone to get there. Meanwhile… no one give their identity. We’ll first all write down on a piece of paper who we think everyone is. That would be a real gas! I’m afraid we are getting too close to having too many clues given on here. I know recently many of us posted our ages.

    So… who is game?

    Let’s get this done!

  • @wrwlumpy ha ha!!! I wish, look pretty good for having 2 gkids!!!

  • @Crimsonorblue22 When did you want me to come up and cut the grass? :p

  • @brooksmd anytime!!! Ole smartass!

  • :-o

  • Not that I am a well known poster for lack of posting, but I would venture to guess my profile picture would take the guess work out of it 😊

  • I’ll dig out the shirt designs and put a couple on cafe press in the next couple of days. I did a test print last fall and the half-tone of Naismith looked like crap, so I need to do a better rendering. Shirt quality was nice.

  • @Jayrawks1 you 2 are definitely the cutest couple!

  • @drgnslayr

    I’m game!!! Wasn’t planning on coming back for these games…UNLESS we have buckets t-shirts!!!

  • @VailHawk stop and pick me up on the way!

  • I think the most popular vote was the iPhoto upper left on this page ( Naismith with ball and kU) followed by: Naismith invented it, Wilt perfected it, We talk about it.

    Maybe DanR came up with it?

  • @JayhawkRock78

    I’m thrilled with that selection. If I can get a decent resolution of that one, I can get the ball rolling within one day and we can immediately start ordering the shirts individually!

    It is all “print on demand” so no one has to risk buying a bunch of shirts to see if they sell.

  • Tickets go on sale today…

    SO… WHO IS IN?

    I wish I could answer in the affirmative. However, I splurged last week on primo tickets to see Kraftwerk. Does that make me a bad person?

  • @tis4tim yes, of course!! Do u live in kc?

  • I will be on vacation elsewhere for those games, but will buy a shirt when they are ready.

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    LOL! Perhaps I should not admit such blasphemies on this board.

    In my defense, I did get to Allen last season for the OU game. Not to mention Kraftwerk hasn’t been to KC since 1975. Being a bucket list item, I simply couldn’t let the opportunity to see them live go by the wayside.

    As for where I live, let’s call it the “KC Area” … an easy day trip to be sure.

  • @tis4tim you should see 1 game!!

  • I’m down for buying a t-shirt. I snagged my tickets to the game this morning. I wouldn’t have even known about the tickets going on sale this morning if it wasn’t for the board!

  • I’ve got some Ice Cream “I’ve got my tickets” -I’ve got some Ice Cream. This is how I feel after getting my tickets at 10 a.m. this morning.

    “I’ll dig out the shirt designs and put a couple on cafe press in the next couple of days. I did a test print last fall and the half-tone of Naismith looked like crap, so I need to do a better rendering. Shirt quality was nice.”


    We’ll push it on here in a special thread!

  • So is the Sprint Center only going to sell lower level seats or open the other level once the lower is sold out? Still plenty of seats available.

  • @tis4tim

    Kraftwerk? there is a name from the past; I still have the Autobahn LP…Great music, pretty unique and maybe ahead of its time,

  • @brooksmd did u get tickets?

  • For those interested…

    I’m awaiting Cafe Press approval on a couple of T-shirt designs. I’ll post links in a separate thread once they are available for sale.

    Looks like they’ll be $24. Depending on quantity, it would be a lot cheaper to print these locally, but this way (using cafe press) no one has to deal with inventory, shipping and all that crap. I’ll donate the 5% commission per shirt to the Lawrence Humane Society in the name of kubuckets.com.

  • BEAUTIFUL. I like them both

  • @DanR They’re both awesome - for reasons I don’t understand though, I think I like the PD version the best. You can definitely count on me for one.
