South Bay Mom’s ‘Anybody But The Seahawks’ Shirts Selling Fast Ahead Of Super Bowl
LOS GATOS (KPIX 5) – It’s a question 49ers fans will have to answer come Sunday, what to wear to the Super Bowl Party? For business owner Mary Guercio, the answer came after watching Richard Sherman’s now famous postgame interview following the NFC Championship Game.
“I looked at my boys and my husband, and I said ‘Anybody but the Seahawks.’ That’s what came out of my mouth. ‘Anybody but the Seahawks’… I didn’t want his behavior to be validated,” said Guercio.
The catchphrase was born in seconds, and a Niners-esque design was created about three hours later.
At first the shirt read “Go Broncos,” but her son convinced her to take that off so Seahawks rivals could wear the shirt year-round.
“When you have 7 kids, six of them boys, and some of them were bullied when they were younger growing up, (the interview) really affected me,” said Guercio. “When this hit me on Sunday after the game, it took me back to when my kids were younger and I said. ‘Not OK. Not OK. Not OK.’”
They are now selling 250 shirts a day both at her “Out of the Envelope” store in Los Gatos and online at Anybodybuttheseahawks.com.
