The Washington Examiner has an article today called “A King’s Feast” talking about the role So Good played in breaking the “Crybaby” t-shirt story. Below are a few excerpts from the original article:
Hereâ€™s how the story unfolded â€” and it might not have gone anywhere if not for local blogger Jon Eick of sogoodblog.com â€” in the last few days.
First came Haywoodâ€™s comment that Cavs forward LeBron James needed to stop being a crybaby about the hard fouls. Then came a local Papa Johnâ€™s chain â€” itâ€™s uncertain which one â€” printing T-shirts with the number 23 and the words, â€œCrybaby 23â€ (along with the Papa Johnâ€™s logo). A very few handful of fans wore them to the game; but one of those fans was shown often on TV.
Eick, who says in his blog that heâ€™s a Wizards fan, then blogged about it, igniting a firestorm. (A Wizards spokesman said the team had nothing to do with the T-shirts). Turns out Eick found more than a dozen Papa Johnâ€™s located within 12 miles of Clevelandâ€™s Quicken Loans Arena.
