It’s a cinch that the most popular Jersey among American soccer fans will be the Cincinnati Iron Man Daddies id designed by former Ohlone art teacher and Palo Altan Kenney Mencher, who got rather familiar with the Oh- hi-oh lingo and lore while a Bearcat grad student back in the Nineties.
edit to add, two years later, I am married now and orphaned and still totally straight but:
If you hit me via my blog or via the publishers of the Weekly, there is a man in my neighborhood who says he is straight but he gets commissions as an artist from gay people and he is good at painting burley, “bear” type males — I will pledge $1,000 if this local Palo Alto artist will do a mural in honor of LGBT rights on a building I inherited 8 percent of, downtown, with a wall — I can ask our GP for permission. The building is ribbed, so to speak, which might complicate the matter. I’d like to see more black art vertical, so to speak. On the walls here. I’m totally straight, too but I think all people are God’s children and we all deserve the same dignity and opportunity.
