Retro 'Bullets Fever' T-Shirt

You gotta be a fan from old DC
To know what the Bullets mean to me
To see them gut up
And go all the way
For me Bullets Fever is here to stay

Bullets Fever!
Happens to me every year!
Bullets Fever!
And this years the one!

The year was 1978, and a young local kid called Nils Lofgren watched the Washington Bullets make an improbable run into the playoffs.

He was so inspired, that he thought "there must be something I can do to help my team go all the way!"

And there was something he could do, and so young Nils Lofgren picked up his guitar and wrote...
The Greatest Song in the History of Rock n' Roll!

It was called "Bullets Fever" and Nils drove around to local radio stations, dropping off copies of the record, and two weeks later, the tune was sweeping the city like a late Sunday wilding in Rock Creek Park.

To commemorate Nils and the Championship Bullets, we put Bullets Fever on a t-shirt. It's the kind of loud, proud, throwback tee you might have picked up at the Cap Center during a 1979 Giant Foods give-a-way.
