Christmas just got a whole lot uglier — or cooler, depending on how you feel about ugly Christmas sweaters.
Fresh Brewed Tees just released a collection of ugly holiday sweatshirts paying homage to sports and pop culture figures, and a few showcase some of Kansas City’s own baseball heroes.
Lorenzo “Candy” Cain really was made for one of these, wasn’t he?
Royals catcher Salvador Perez shows up on two of the $50 sweatshirts. One shows him “splashing through the snow” as he dumps a bucket of Gatorade. The other declares Salvy “Most Valuable Savior.”
That’s Eric “Ho Ho Hosmer” swinging away on the front of another sweatshirt.
No surprise, a few political types got the holiday treatment this year. “Do You Hair What I Hair?” asks a Donald Trump sweatshirt.
The current president is “Barackin’ Around the Christmas Tree” on another.
But the one that might make you cry instead of laugh depicts the beloved 17-year-old gorilla, Harambe, who lost his life in May after a child entered his enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo.
“Haramabe Loved Christmas,” his ugly Christmas sweatshirt reminds us.
Silent night, Harambe.
