Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang: Teddy ‘Bridewater’ tees spotted at Twin Cities’ Target (pic)


Granted, Teddy Bridgewater hasn’t been a member of the Minnesota Vikings for all that long, but hopefully the team’s fans in the Twin Cities area will eye items bearing his name carefully before purchasing a jersey or tee at area Target stores.

Star Tribune columnist Gail Rosenblum received the above photo of a jersey-tee from a friend that purportedly was taken at a local target. Suffice to say, upon closer inspection, when it comes to spelling the rookie quarterback’s name, “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang” doesn’t quite cut it.

But come on, it’s “Bridge over Troubled Water,” people,” not “Bride over Troubled Water.” Sheesh.

At the same time, given that Bridgewater is quickly moving up the ranks and may in fact leapfrog Matt Cassel by the end of training camp and assume the starting quarterback’s role on the Vikings before the season even starts — a remarkable ascension — scooping up one of these bad boys would make for a pretty funny keepsake down the line.
