I walked into the Majestic t-shirt shop for the first time this year last night. I cracked up when I saw that they had two logos with "The Carlos Quentin" on them one of them had TCQ to the left as well. My gf got one made with his name and number on the back. The girl helping us out informed us that yesterday was the first day that those logos were being sold.

On a side note i got a shirt for my little nephew that says "My mom calls the other team bad names" and underneath is the Sox logo.

When KW got Quentin in the offseason he said that he didn't want a Carlos Quentin type player but instead he wanted the actual Carlos Quentin. At the time many skeptical fans changed KW's quote to say that he got The Carlos Quentin and started the name more in a mocking fashion. However The Carlos Quentin has been The Real Deal so the nickname has stuck. It has been shortened to TCQ.

From Wiki:


White Sox fans have bestowed the nickname "TCQ" which stands for "The Carlos Quentin". The name originates from a quote from GM Kenny Williams after he acquired Quentin. He said, "We wanted to upgrade at shortstop, get a setup guy for the bullpen, acquire Carlos Quentin, and not a guy like him but actually Carlos Quentin," implying that Quentin was a special player. Quentin, who is not listed on Major League Baseball's All-Star Game fan ballots (he was expected to begin the season in the minors; minor league center fielder Jerry Owens, who was expected to be the starting CF for the White Sox, is listed instead), has made a serious case for All-Star consideration. Fittingly, White Sox fans have taken to casting write-in votes. Recently, many loyal Sox fans have elected to drop the "T" and "C" from "TCQ" and refer to him solely as "Q". Others who happen to actually follow the sport call him "C-Queazy", seeing as how he upsets the stomach of any opposing player he faces. Also, playing off of US Cellular Field's nickname, The Cell, some have proposed calling him "The Warden" since he is the man in charge at The Cell.

C-Queazy? :scratch:

That rivals O-Do-Tell for one of the worst nicknames ever.

Indeed. That snippet about The Warden is quite intriguing, though. However, TCQ still remains the runaway winner.

I got mine last night. Grey with Quentin 20 on the back and the front is background of TCQ in script with the number 20 with the words in bold THE CARLOS QUENTIN and a Sox logo in the center. Pretty sweet shirt! :gulp:

Is the T-shirt open only during the game or before and/or after as well? I want to check it out next weekend but I don't really want to miss the game.

I believe it ended up about $27. Worth it though and I like the logo better than pdimas' one only because it actually has the letters "TCQ"

I'll post a pic of mine once I find the USB adapter for my phone as my digital camera took a **** this weekend in FL.
