Mets sport ‘Big Sexy’ Bartolo Colon T-shirts
Bartolo Colon is love. Bartolo Colon is life. And now Bartolo Colon is a T-shirt.
Perhaps to celebrate the team’s first NL East division title since 2006, the finest merchandising haul known to man recently arrived in the New York Mets clubhouse: shirts proudly touting the jolly 42-year-old right-hander as “Big Sexy.”

Colon is already arguably the biggest cult hero in Major League Baseball with his interpretive dance moves, his entertaining exploits at the plate, on the basepaths, and in the field, as well as his ostensible love for chimichangas. Now with Colon set to return for the 2016 campaign and these t-shirts going viral, there’s one thing that’s for absolute certain: the legend of Bartolo continues.
Now a quick word of advice for the manufacturers of these “Big Sexy” tees: Just shut up and take my money.
