Rob Latronica, running back with a cause, has been wearing the sleeveless red T-shirt for more than a year now. On the front of the T-shirt is a picture of a buck lined up in the crosshairs of a rifle scope. On the back of the T- shirt are the words, THE BUCKS STOP HERE. Latronica has not been wearing the T-shirt because he is an avid subscriber to Field and Stream magazine. Since a big loss to Central Bucks West's football team two years ago, a game for which the T-shirts originally were printed, Latronica has set his sights on the Bucks, and on Friday night, he finally tracked them down.

The little girl did know why everyone was making such a big deal about the baptism of her infant brother and sister. But she was still miffed. She wasn't used to being eclipsed. Then, a doting relative who came for the celebration bestowed the perfect gift that put everything in perspective. Happily, the little girl wore over her pretty party dress a red T-shirt with white letters: I'm the Twins' Big Sister. T-shirts are like that. They can make a statement. They can boost the spirits.

IT'S COME to this: Penn State has issued a T-shirt commemorating its 23-17 season-opening win over Syracuse. We all know the Nits are doing whatever they can to boost a program that was hit hard by the Jerry Sandusky scandal. But selling a T-shirt (for $17.95, by the way) for beating a team that went 8-5 last season is a bit much. Even if it did take place at an NFL stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The Nits have won 23 of the last 26 meetings with the Orange. And, at one point, won 16 in a row (from 1971 to 1986)

Nearly every day, Corine Toms puts on a custom-painted T-shirt and turns herself into a walking shrine to her dead boy, "Worm. " Since May 30, 1995, when he was shot by another teen in Germantown, she has built a memorial wardrobe of four shirts. There's a simple, short-sleeved T-shirt bearing the letters RIP and the dates of his birth and death, and another emblazoned with a big red cross. For winter, there's a sweatshirt with a silk screen of her son in a white suit, standing in the living room; "In Loving Memory Of" is written across the back.

One of the most anticipated games of the NFL preseason, if you believe in that sort of thing, is getting the rock-tour treatment: It will get its own commemorative T-shirt. For a mere $35, obsessed fans can buy a "QB Showdown" T-shirt, which will picture rookie quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. This year's No. 1 and No. 2 overall picks will face off Saturday when the Colts face the Redskins in Washington. "People will make a buck off everything," Redskins defensive end Stephen Bowen said.

They're shapeless. They're gray. They are so not what fashion is all about. They're the "you-blew-the-dress code" T-shirts at Rancocas Valley Regional High School. They're an administrator's dream. How it works: At the school in northern Burlington County, the dress code is typical. Student clothing should not be distracting, disruptive or hazardous. But this year, there's a twist. Any kid who violates the code either must wear this badge of bad taste the rest of the day - or call home and wait in the office for acceptable attire.

Urban Outfitters Inc. said Monday it never stocked or sold a controversial T-shirt with a pocket patch that resembled a symbol worn by Jews in Nazi Europe, while the shirt's Danish manufacturer said a photo featuring the embroidery on Urban's website "must be an early sample" of a prototype that was never, ultimately, made. The T-shirt's symbol. The Philadelphia-based retailer would not explain how a photo of the yellow cotton Kellog tee with a six-pointed blue star on a chest pocket ended up on its website for $100, but spokesman Ed Looram said the online image would be replaced with a "correct" and pocketless version of the shirt, made by Denmark-based Wood Wood.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - In the category of "there are stupid criminals and there are even stupider criminals," police here say that a man apprehended in a North Carolina home-invasion robbery is in jail after a T-shirt bearing his photo was found outside the crime scene. The Charlotte Observer reported yesterday that the shirt fell from the suspect's car as he was making a hasty getaway.

For one shining sentimental moment, that T-shirt from the East Idaho 10K Turkey Dash was more than a wonderful idea. It was imperative. So was that T-shirt from the regatta in which your boat capsized and you were nearly swept off to sea. And that "I (Heart) Vermont" tee from the camping trip with the friendly deer ticks. Ah, what's a memory without a T-shirt to commemorate it? Your overstuffed closets and bureau drawers are willing to find out. So is the American Friends Service Committee, the Quaker organization.

Coming toward me on a sunny sidewalk a few weeks ago was a young man in a white T-shirt. He sauntered by, looking relaxed and happy. His T-shirt stopped me cold. In bold black letters, it said: "Kill Me. " No pictures; nothing on the back. I couldn't tell if the guy was daring strangers to do him in, begging for help, or making a joke. Or maybe he thought the words on his shirt were mere decoration. No one stared at him or stopped - it was bizarre how little attention he attracted.

AS PHILADELPHIA mourns the violent deaths of so many children - including a 3-year-old girl killed Friday by a stray bullet in Grays Ferry - Rhawnhurst Presbyterian Church has installed a memorial of 201 T-shirts, each bearing the name and age of a 2013 shooting victim. "There is one shirt for every victim of gun violence within the borders of the city in 2013," the Rev. Keith McClain said. He partnered with Heeding God's Call - a faith-based campaign to end illegal-handgun sales - and erected the activist group's traveling "Memorial to the Lost" on his church's front lawn along Loretto Avenue near Lansing Street, where it will remain through Aug. 16. A prayer vigil is scheduled for 7 p.m. today at which the public is invited to walk through the memorial, reflect on what it means and, if moved to do so, quietly say a prayer for an end to gun violence.

WILDWOOD - The Wildwood boardwalk is many things to many people, but never dull. "Sun's out, guns out" says one T-shirt blaring from the ubiquitous shops. "Bro do you even lift," insults another shirt. But the cool kids seem to be hanging around such places as Oxygen, an emporium of slightly naughty but increasingly socially acceptable activities: tattoos, hennas, piercing, braiding, pendanting, and resupplying yourself with hookah and vaporizing paraphernalia. While T-shirt shop owners demur at any discussion of their merchandising strategies, Michael Gabriel, 24, an eight-year veteran of the Wildwood tattoo parlor scene who speaks of his industry as if he's participating in a Wharton seminar, steps right up. Question: So what do you do here?

  Share the fruit you wear. That's the motto behind Fruitstrology, a budding new business of screen-printed tank tops and T-shirts designed by two Temple University business students, sisters Rachel and Sarah Stanton. For every shirt sold, a serving of fresh fruit is donated through Philabundance to Philadelphia-area children in so-called food deserts, where supermarkets are scarce. The 22-year-old twins from Bristol conceived the idea in 2012 and, after several rounds of design experimentation, started marketing their shirts in September.

John Doerffel never thought his clothes would land him in the internal suspension room for a half-day, but that's what happened to the William Tennent High School senior this week. On Wednesday, Doerffel, 19, was wearing a black T-shirt he said he had worn to the Warminster school dozens of times. On the back, it has a picture of an M-16 rifle surrounded by barbed wire, bullets, and the words "Peace Through Superior Firepower. " Doerffel, who plans to join the Marines after graduation, said an assistant principal told him the shirt violated the school's dress code.

WE'VE ALL HEARD of Renaissance Men. How about the teenaged version? Say hello to Harry Taggart and feel free to give him a round of applause. Aside from being a three-sport stalwart at Julia Masterman High, the 6-foot, 180-pound senior is bound for Penn, is planning to learn Spanish well enough to eventually study abroad for a year/semester and, get this, is already a mover/shaker in a T-shirt company that's making major strides. This is the sports section, so first be advised that Taggart, while bouncing from third base to centerfield to shortstop Thursday, went 2-for-3 with a plunking, one RBI and two runs scored as the visiting Blue Dragons topped Franklin Towne Charter, 7-3, in a Public A contest played in windy conditions at a playground on the doorstep of the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge.

The shirts, which make fun of the notion that the South is full of inbred hicks, doesn't sit well with Kari Frederickson, the chair of Alabama's history department. "The characterization is tired, inaccurate and playing on stereotypes of ignorance and lack of cultural sophistication," Frederickson told Time's Keeping Score blog.

THE PARENTS OF a girl who allegedly was ridiculed by her teacher for wearing a Romney-Ryan T-shirt earlier this year are suing the Philadelphia School District for infringing on her First Amendment rights. A lawyer for the family of Samantha Pawlucy, 16, whose pink T-shirt sparked a national uproar in October, filed a lawsuit Friday in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia, claiming that the district "effectively banned" her from wearing the shirt and "permitted other students to threaten her verbally and physically.
