PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — As fans in Portland bask in the Trail Blazers surprise victory in the Western Conference Semifinals, many are already thinking ahead to the finals.
At Portland Gear in Southwest Portland, printers are kicking into their own version of overtime cranking out T-shirts to celebrate the historic win.
“Just seeing them advance in absolutely the first time in our company’s existence, to the Western Conference finals, we had to do something to celebrate this moment,” owner Zach Dean said.
Dean showed KOIN 6 News the limited edition Rain City Playoffs T-shirt that is ready for sale in their local stores and online.
The shirt features the Tilikum Crossing Bridge and Rain City graphics to rally Rip City ahead of the series against the Golden State Warriors.
“Making fun of our foe’s logo — we wanted to put our own spin on it,” he said
The Rain City Playoff Tee is selling for $30 and they will ship around May 15.
Dean has already had a lot of orders for his shirts online and they’ll be working to get them out as soon as possible.
