Let Your T-Shirt Do the ‘Menacing’ for You
Last week, Celtics captain Paul Pierce set off a storm of controversy after he flashed what may or may not have been a gang sign during Game 3 against the Hawks. The Weekly Dig told us that the sign is “street shit” derived from the three stripes on Adidas sneakers. The Herald dug up a picture of Mayor Tom Menino flashing the sign at an event.
If you believe that the signal meant nothing more than “blood, sweat, and tears” as Kendrick Perkins and Doc Rivers say, then it’s a cute way to support the green and gold and oppose the NBA’s $25,000 fine against Pierce for the action.
We just hope someone orders one of the shirts for T-Mizzy. We all know how much the mayor loves shadow puppets.
