TCU beat Texas A&M 5-4 in a 16-inning game last night to advance to the College World Series, ending the Aggies’ hopes at winning its first ever College World Series.

It was a dramatic finish, one that would break the spirit of even the most hopeful Aggie:

But that soul-crushing defeat didn’t stop some Texas stores from throwing this A&M shirt on the sale rack. A few were allegedly selling it before the super regional was even over:

If they are never going to make a College World Series, then dammit, they are going to at least pretend. Reminds of a saying my grandma always said: Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.

Lying about athletic success is not new to A&M. In 2012, the Aggies added two new conference and national championships to its wall of honor, neither of which happened.

Needless to say, this shirt is a 10-out-of-10 on the Aggie Scale of Athletic “Achievement” Embarrassments.
