February 13 will be for me, the last day I’ve forgotten to buy a Valentine’s Day gift for my wife before it’s, “Oh no! It’s Valentine’s Day and I’ve bought no gift!”
It will also be the 66th anniversary of the founding of the Erster Fußball Club Köln, and, to commemorate the occasion, the FC-FanShop is holding a vote on which fan-submitted t-shirt design will ultimately be printed and sold to the public.
The evil of outsourcing design efforts to get free creative work aside, it is a bit fun to see the seven finalists pared from over 100 submissions.
The voting is apparently taking place entirely on the FC-Fanshop Facebook page. The design photo which gets the most likes will, of course, be printed and sold, likely at a tidy little profit.
Now, Dear Poodle-Haired Rudi of Leverkusen, please do NOT purchase help from a third-world company who provides fake accounts to provide extra social-media fans for your personal favorite. Let’s keep it fair, okay? Besides, I’m sure the Bayer people would be happy to pay to print you one of each, if that would make you happy.
I wonder which one my wife would dig…
Honey! Happy Valentine’s Day!
What? Red and white! What’s more lovable than that?!
