You know that old saying, “Don’t quit your day job”?
That applies to Adrian Peterson in this situation.
‘One shoe, two shoe’
One of the bigger trends in pop culture right now is to get T-shirts made to commemorate a quirky moment, a strange quote or some other event.
Some of them work: last week, Cam Newton went to the podium to chat with media in a “Gano lo ganó” T-shirt, which is what the Panthers’ Spanish-language broadcasters shouted after kicker Graham Gano beat the Giants with a 63-yard field goal.
Others don’t work so well.
On Wednesday, Peterson took to Twitter and Instagram to announce that he’s now selling a T-shirt to commemorate his play from last Sunday, when he lost one of his cleats in Luke Kuechly’s facemask on a run.
“This play is a classic!,” Peterson wrote on Instagram. “It earned a spot on my TOP 10 all-time play list.” He then invites followers to visit his website to purchase a shirt.
But it’s … not good.
Bizarre play, bizarre shirt
Look, we are all for players making money off their achievements and expanding their brand and all of that. But “one shoe, two shoe, AD will run past you”??
And as noted by the Washington Post’s Scott Allen, there’s a mistake on the second version of the shirt: the sock foot is the left foot. But on the play, Peterson lost his right shoe, leaving the sock on his right foot flapping as he ran.
Oh well. They can’t all be winners.
Peterson enjoying solid season
Peterson is enjoying a bit of a renaissance after some injuries and fits and starts in recent years. Signed by Washington after the team lost rookie Derrius Guice to a torn ACL, Peterson has started all five games and has 77 carries for 339 yards and three touchdowns, plus seven catches for 136 yards.
He’s on pace for his first 1,000 yard rushing season since 2015.
