The Gotham Bowl: Our Greatest Post-Season Triumph

The Gotham Bowl was a short-lived bowl game held for only two years in the early 1960s. The game was hosted at in NYC at the now-defunct Polo Grounds for its inagural game, then at Yankee Stadium for its final game the following year. The Wikipedia entry cites the cold weather and the lack of fan support and ticket revenue as two reasons why the Gotham Bowl failed to sustain as a viable annual bowl. Now, thanks to the good people at Congress Clothing (located next to Scruffy Murphy's on Speight), Baylor fans can relive the 1961 Gotham Bowl victory with a commemorative/ironic t-shirt celebrating that glorious day in December for only $24! Here is the link to their Gotham Bowl t-shirt. In our first meeting with Utah State, we trounced those "Big Blue Aggies" 24 to 9. Sic 'em, Bears! I love NY!

This could be you, clad in your Gotham Bowl t-shirt and ready to impress some English-major-coeds from Plano with your use of the word "post-structuralism" over a few pints at the Dancing Bear Pub

LOCAL CELEBRITY ENDORSEMENT UPDATE! WacoTrib hearthrob reporter Emily Ingram sported a Gotham Bowl t-shirt long before BearMeat made them famous. Thanks to Wendy Does Waco for the tip.

  • Does the face rash come with each purchase of this $24 hipster shirt?!?

  • Like the shirt. Gonna get one.

    Minor point - Baylor played Utah State in 1993. Baylor won 28-24. I was there - the game was at Utah State and it was a big deal because they were inaugurating their brand new lighting system. Electricity had come to Utah and so had night football. Got a program somewhere.

    Keep up the good work. See you at the Ya Gotta Believe sign.

  • Thanks for the correction, RRL.

    That "hipster face rash" is most likely a sunburn from the UT game - most fans sitting in the student section got burned pretty bad. That or we're looking at a case of old fashioned face herpes.

  • I love Hole in the Roof.

    I don't love face rash.

  • The rash is totally optional. If you'll notice, our girl Em rocked this T with the fresh face, girl next door look in a couple of her vids.

    Cool shirt. I want one.

  • At what point can I get a "Cicero for President Emeritus" T'Shirt? I think that should be hot on the presses. Or "Aaron Karas overthrew me in Cameron Park".
