    Montreal Canadiens hockey team wanted to celebrate their 1 million Twitter followers by allowing people to create custom jerseys. It was automated so you can guess the result before they put an end to it.

    Heh. Sometimes sports promotion people forget that the general public can be lewd and crude. I remember reading a story about the Kansas City Royals once holding a "Tank Top Night", at which fans coming to the game would receive a Royals tank top t-shirt. After consuming a few beers and possibly at the insistence of their boyfriends, some of the lady fans stripped off their tops and put on the tank tops. It became a Wing Bowl situation.
