Weinstein Co. Doesn't Take Kindly to "Inglourious Backes" T-Shirt Design
|The T-Shirt in question. Its maker is looking for a new printer.|
What say you readers, does the Weinstein Co. have a legit gripe here? The logo from the Basterds movie is after the jump:

Springfield, Missouri-based screenprinters Rina Wear (makers of the "It Ain't Right 'Till It's Wainwright" shirt) have stepped in to print the shirts for customers who want them, says Maggio. He also sends this link, where you can buy the shirts.
Maggio, a 25-year-old Metro East native, graphic designer by trade and now resident of Appleton, Wisconsin, says he still catches the Blues on TV occasionally and follows the team through various hockey blogs, including -- he names drops one -- Puckdaddy.com. Coming off Sunday's epic win over Canada (in which Backes achieved an assist for Team USA), demand might grow for these shirts as the Olympics carries forth.
Sidebar: Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds movie title is a take off the 1978 war movie The Inglorious Bastards. So much for originality.
Back to hockey, the Blues play Switzerland today. Might be a good day to call-in sick and watch some hockey, eh?
