I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of Norwegians telling me what to think.
Take Thor Hushovd getting his knickers in a twist because of the local support Alberto Contador has received since his positive dope test. Just because most of his fans are too busy being employed to flood into the streets is no reason for the reigning world champion to be bitter.
And then there’s the head of the Norwegian cycling federation saying that his counterparts in Spain won’t give Contador proper scrutiny. First, other nations haven’t exactly been stringent, and second, hasn’t dumping the blame for the world’s cycling problems on Spain gone out of style yet? McQuaid’s been on that gripe for almost four years now.
Well, now’s your time to fight back against over-reaching “Anglo-Saxons” (to borrow McQuaid’s terminology). As you may or may not know, Contador is turning the media attention surrounding his misfortune into positive marketing by opening chain of upscale restaurants, and Cyclocosm has been chosen as the exclusive US distributor of their promotional apparel.
So this morning, I am proud to offer you your first opportunity at buying the official Pistolero Steakhouse t-shirt. It’s printed on an American Apparel tee, and I’ve switched printing methods to something a little more flexible and breathable than the previous designs.

We gave you Walter Mondale, Karl Rove and Paris Hilton, you should be more grateful son.
Over $21 for a t-shirt (not including shipping) is a bit much for those of us who don’t have a chain of restaurants or a trust fund.
$21…meh, it’s American Apparel. It’s MUCH better than the $49AUD (google says that’s $48.29 US) for a “Shut Up Legs” shirt from CyclingTips.com
@ Boy scout: You’ll always be able to find something eve more expensive, that’s true! Perhaps Bergdoff Goodman has $120 Tees that make the cycling tips one you mention seem cheap…. Where does this stop?
One example would be Rapha t-shirts ($45 w/o shipping) which are more expensive than Cosmo’s.
Oddly enough, it seems Cosmo may not be as averse to Rapha as he seemed to be when he rightly denounced their weird infomercial pieces posing as reviews in affiliated web sites: the infamous and funny post styled “Raphxis of evil.” https://https://cyclocosm.com/2009/12/the-raphxis-of-evil/
Now it seems he has an account there: https://twitpic.com/35yrjm
Maybe the joke is on us…
Oh well, buy a Contador steak t-shirt from Cosmo & you can tell yourself you’ve paid for almost half of his brand new Raphix scarf, or three fingers of his white grand tour gloves! Or does he get free samples?
After all, you got to get something for “joining” the Raphxis of evil…
keep in mind you’re comparing mass produced/printed shirts to shirts that are made as they are ordered, not really a fair comparison
Will the proceeds go to Contadors’s legal defense? Like Floyd did it?
Cosmo is a cycling expert and a comedian now!
I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of smartass bloggers trashing Norwegians simply because they actually have an opinion that’s valid.
Funny shirt, btw. It would make a nice chain cleaning rag.
I’d buy it if it were a jersey.
Wasn’t AC claiming the beef to be Basque and not from the Canary Islands?
Else love the shirt.
