The T5 Flaming Keg Shirt

The T5 Flaming Keg ShirtA few weeks ago, I got an email from Pip’s sister letting me know that she was making him a quilt made out of t-shirts and was wondering if I had any input.  Not only did I have some input but I had what I thought was the perfect shirt to add to the mix… The T5 Flaming Keg shirt.  Back in our days in the dorm, Pip and I lived with a great group of guys in Teter-Thompson on the 5th floor.  That’s where the nicknames Chewie, Pip, Buford, Amo, Floyd and a whole slew of others come from as well as quite a few other memories that I won’t go into here.

We decided that we should make a shirt to commemorate our year on the floor and came up with this Amo-designed shirt that represented us… The Flaming Keg.  On the back was a list of the top things heard on the floor.  Many of these were inside jokes that only the residents of the floor will remember/understand and some of them are pretty clear.  Without further adieu, I give you that list.  I hope the shirt has a place of honor in the quilt Pip!
