where can I get a T-shirt like Sergio Romo?

Original post made by resident on Oct 31, 2012

At today's San Francisco Giants World Series victory parade, star pitcher Sergio Romo was wearing a T-shirt saying "I JUST LOOK ILLEGAL". Sergio was born and raised in California.

Do any stores in or near Palo Alto sell this T-shirt?

What do you think about celebrities wearing shirts like this? Appropriate for family-oriented events? A good teaching moment for our kids? Half of this year's San Francisco Giants team has Latino ancestry.

I thought the T-shirt was actually quite amusing and got a good chuckle out of it. I can't think of any reason why it would be inappropriate to wear anywhere, except maybe a wedding or a funeral,

Sergio Romo may well have had it custom made, but they may turn up locally before long.

Try google.com. Lots of sites have it available.

Side note - I was at the parade, and it was so cool to see Sergio soaking it all up. He was the only player to walk (at least where I saw him), and he was clearly so excited and so emotional. What an amazing accomplishment, great story, and through interviews and seeing him you can just tell he's a very positive, good person.

I grew up in Los Angeles and am a fervent Dodger fan.

BUT ROMO'S T-SHIRT IS AWESOME.

For this I am now glad the Giants won the world series.

If you're interested, Sergio Romo and Barry Zito are going to be on the Tonight Show (Jay Leno) tonight.

If it helps, I read in the Chronicle that the T-shirt was made by a very small company in LA. The name was not given, though, because they are now swamped with orders! I hope this makes them rich!
