Holy Shirt! rolls out choices for final rivalry game in Syracuse

It's what everyone in town is talking about, the big game Saturday between Syracuse and Georgetown.
The funny thing is, SU still has to play Providence on Wednesday.
But consider that, to many, a minor detail. Syracuse fans are lining up to get their gear for Saturday's game which has sold out with 35,012 tickets sold.
Holy Shirt! has created two looks (pictured) one to commemorate the final Syracuse vs. Georgetown game in the Carrier dome and the other to honor Carmelo Anthony as his jersey will be retired.
"After 30 years of having Georgetown as a rival, we thought it was fitting to send them home with a loss one more time, for old times sake. And that was kind of our feeling with the shirt and our hope for the outcome of Saturday's game" said Holy Shirt! owner John Groat.
Groat says the idea for the Carmelo t-shirt was to provide fans an inexpensive way to show their support for "Melo".
Both t-shirts cost $14.99 and can be found at the University Book Store along with All-Star Sports.
