I’m sure you all remember Tim Lincecum’s little dust up with the law over some marijuana possession. Well, while Tim mostly likely has tried to keep his extracurricular activities out of the public eye, street vendors outside of AT&T park aren’t.
So in the spirit of entrepreneurship and law breaking, the “Let Tim Smoke” t-shirts were born. But don’t get it twisted, even the entrepreneur/law breaker knows that when Lincecum is struggling, he needs to pass the dutchie to the left hand side.
When San Francisco Giants ace Tim Lincecum takes the mound in his playoff debut on Thursday, many fans will be celebrating…his 2009 citation for marijuana possession. Since then, T-shirts emblazoned with some variation of “Let Tim Smoke” are big sellers online and outside AT&T Park. Street vendor Jerry Lami says the shirts are only popular when Tim is winning. “When he was 0-5 in August, people said he better stick to playing baseball,” he says.
Street vendors sell the darndest things.
