    I would love a Timbers PDX Carpet shirt because I absolutely love them & am a longtime fan since before the days of MLS. It would be great to show off the love of team and pay honor to the coolest airport carpet in the world.

  2. Rain Madrone January 26, 2015 at 1:19 pm #

    I need a shirt because I never got to say goodbye to the PDX carpet… sniff.

  3. leah January 26, 2015 at 1:24 pm #

  6. Monica H. January 26, 2015 at 1:56 pm #

    R.I.P PDX carpet. You will forever be in our hearts.

  7. Alex January 26, 2015 at 2:05 pm #

    That shirt is amazing! Reasons why I need this shirt: 1) I can wear it to the airport. 2) I can wear it to blazer games. 3) I can wear it while I’m doing laundry. 4) I can wear it while on tinder dates. 5) I can frame it and stare at it everyday remembering how I won it. 6) I could take an amazing selfie with this shirt. I honestly can’t think of a reason why I should not win this shirt. I’m not even wearing now in preparation of gaining this one.

  8. Gene January 26, 2015 at 2:19 pm #

    There isn’t a time that goes by when I’m at the PDX airport that I don’t take a picture of my shoes!

  9. Whitney Watters January 26, 2015 at 3:22 pm #

    I had intentions on buying this during Xmas, for that special someone in my life but decided on scotch instead. Now he needs to look suave drinking his scotch, this shirt is the answer.

  10. Shawn Sanders January 26, 2015 at 3:34 pm #

    I want to carry on the legacy of PDX shoe-shots by allowing passers-by to step on my chest and take selfies.

  11. Erich Miller January 26, 2015 at 3:41 pm #

    I was born and raised in Portland. I am moving to Seattle soon and would love to take a piece of Portland with me.

  12. Karri January 26, 2015 at 4:17 pm #

    This design is so classic. I hate to see it go from PDX… but its glory can live on, on my shirt!

  13. Alyssa January 26, 2015 at 5:07 pm #

    Would love to have the Blazers shirt! All PDX from head to toe!

  16. Q January 26, 2015 at 7:19 pm #

    I never did properly day goodbye after my last trip. My phone had died so I didn’t even get to take a pic of the carpet. This classy take on the floor is an amazing way to remember it!

  17. michael israel January 26, 2015 at 8:23 pm #

    i only own two functional t shirts. and i might be the only person left here that was born here!

  18. Stacie January 26, 2015 at 8:38 pm #

    nothing like reppin a blazer colored pdx carpet to let people know how much love you have for your city..

  19. Lucas January 26, 2015 at 8:59 pm #

    What a better way to support two of The best sports organizations in the country!?!! I would wear these digs with Pride!!

  20. Kelli E. January 27, 2015 at 1:22 am #

    Those are great renditions of my favorite carpet design! It would be awesome to win one of these and show off my love for my home teams and the best airport carpet ever! :D

  21. Stephanie January 27, 2015 at 7:59 am #

    Because they capture three things I love; Portland, our sports teams, and traveling. I’m in!

  22. Audrey January 27, 2015 at 8:53 am #

  26. Linda S January 27, 2015 at 12:31 pm #

    That carpet has seen me come and go on many trips

  27. Yume January 27, 2015 at 12:38 pm #

    I don’t wear t-shirts out in public that often, but this is one that I’d rock proudly. I really like the colors on these, too.

  28. frank n January 27, 2015 at 1:26 pm #

    go Blazers and pdx!!

  29. Laura Chrestenson January 27, 2015 at 2:33 pm #

    I would love to win a shirt!

  30. Karen January 27, 2015 at 2:39 pm #

    I’m going to just go ahead and order one and pay for it because I don’t live in Portland yet. But I want the shirt anyway. If I end up winning a shirt, I will gift it to someone deserving of the honor. I like the way the shirt looks.

  31. Kevin January 27, 2015 at 7:54 pm #

    seen so many airport carpets in my days. Never one so cool.

  32. Sarah Murray January 28, 2015 at 9:09 am #

    I want to win because I like to picture Jesus in a PDX T-Shirt because it says I want to be formal, but I’m here to party!


  33. CJ January 28, 2015 at 11:07 am #

    Much like the actual carpet of thy pdx this shirt in the homestead & upon thy person of myself would endure the affliction of strangers. Their feet stomps, food discard crumbs, vomitous childs, beverages of hops or non, and yet still be so beloved for all it’s charm & life lived. Crown me they winner in shirt form so i shall travel the lands reminding weary travelers of a long lost friend, pdx carpet.

  34. Lea Anna January 28, 2015 at 3:38 pm #

    What a creative way to keep this carpet alive!

  35. Paul horton January 28, 2015 at 10:56 pm #

    Just keeping it weird

  36. Danielle V January 29, 2015 at 12:16 pm #

    I will do my duty to honor and serve the Portland weirdness by wearing this commemorative carpet design on my chest. ‘Til death do us part.

  37. Scott Hamilton January 29, 2015 at 12:21 pm #

    I have walked that carpet many times. I need a momento.

  38. lori January 29, 2015 at 12:21 pm #

    Love the carpet…love these tees. :)

  39. Mary Blu January 29, 2015 at 12:28 pm #

    The perfect Portland storm… airport carpeting meets local sporting teams! What’s not to love about this?!

  40. Georgia January 29, 2015 at 12:33 pm #

    Can a t-shirt be any more Portland than this? What better way to display your loyalties for all the world to see.

  41. Amy January 29, 2015 at 12:35 pm #

    This portland native has been a blazer fan since the 80s and will miss the pdx carpet dearly! Help me rep my roots!

  42. Carrie Sullwold January 29, 2015 at 12:38 pm #

    Because this is as weird (and cool) as it gets. I would proudly sport my carpet shirt. Either one. Both are rad.

  43. Mikey B January 29, 2015 at 12:40 pm #

    Shirts look dope.

  44. beth January 29, 2015 at 12:52 pm #

    I need these because I never got to say goodbye to the PDX carpet. :'(

  45. Danielle January 29, 2015 at 1:00 pm #

    Would love to keep a piece of the carpet around to wear!

  46. Jadon January 29, 2015 at 1:04 pm #

    I have purchased other Blazers gear from Grafletics, plus every time I’m at a Blazers game I refer people to them. So at this point, the shirt is kind of owed to me!

  47. Mark January 29, 2015 at 1:06 pm #

    The only thing better than wearing the actual carpet as a shirt is wearing this shirt. Sign me up!

  48. Jim Withington January 29, 2015 at 1:09 pm #

    I’d love to win these–what a cool combo of Portland’s icons!

  49. Lorelee January 29, 2015 at 1:21 pm #

    I would love to wear one to a Blazer game.

  50. Elyse January 29, 2015 at 1:25 pm #

    This is awesome, I would love one!

  51. Michael January 29, 2015 at 1:26 pm #

    RIP floor

  52. Aurelia January 29, 2015 at 1:27 pm #

    I love shirt. I need shirt. Pick me (please)!!

    Rip City!

  54. mike January 29, 2015 at 1:36 pm #

    Sometimes i take naps at the airport and this will be the perfect cover……

  55. Stephen January 29, 2015 at 1:41 pm #

    I just visited PDX and I’m really going to miss the familiar and iconic carpet design. Never forget!

  56. Christina January 29, 2015 at 1:51 pm #

    I love the Timbers, and I love that endeeringly ugly PDX carpet – these shirts are so perfect! This the the best carpet swag I’ve seen yet :)

  57. birdonit January 29, 2015 at 1:53 pm #

    I never thought about it like that before, but I guess the two things I love most ARE sports and carpet. ;)

  58. Heather January 29, 2015 at 2:01 pm #

    As a HUGE Timbers supporter and a Blazers fan, I NEED this shirt.

  59. Megan January 29, 2015 at 2:11 pm #

    I would love to win a shirt for my husband because February 8 is his birthday! He grew up in Portland and Came to Florida with the Air Force where we met. When he got out of the Airforce I convinced him to move back to Portland because I had fallen in love with the rose city after visiting his family. We love Portland and we will miss the PDX carpet!

  60. Kristy Alberty January 29, 2015 at 2:13 pm #

    PLEASE select me for this stylie-shirt!

    You have to ask yourself….. is there a black PDX carpet t-shirt blacker than this?
    And the answer must be….. none. None more Black (or gray….. I like gray.)


  61. Marco January 29, 2015 at 2:22 pm #

    Having felt walked on the past 34 years in Portland… a PDX Tee sounds liked fair payback!

  62. Danielle Forster January 29, 2015 at 3:20 pm #

    Please please please!

  63. Karen January 29, 2015 at 3:32 pm #

    #PDXcarpet: parting is such sweet sorrow, though I know I will see you again as a hat, scarf, blanket, bath mat, cat scratching pole, or whatever this crafty wonderland of a city has in store for you. I would love to win these shirts, too!

  64. Kaila January 29, 2015 at 3:52 pm #

    I would love to give this as a gift to my husband – a huge Blazers fan!!

  65. Lucy January 29, 2015 at 4:11 pm #

    If I don’t win, I’ll get a tattoo of it, and my mother will kill me.

  66. Scott January 29, 2015 at 4:26 pm #

    Sounds like fun.

  67. Susan January 29, 2015 at 4:41 pm #

    I love these colors! Goodbye carpet… *sniff sniff*

  68. cheryl January 29, 2015 at 5:10 pm #

    Because the PDX carpet is the coolest one in the whole country!

  69. Eric January 29, 2015 at 5:22 pm #

    I wear a t-shirt every day. This would be for one of those days.

  70. Day Tripper January 29, 2015 at 6:02 pm #

    I’ve got the drapes need the carpet

  71. TiffanyO January 29, 2015 at 6:25 pm #

    His ‘n Hers shirts? If I won, I’d wear my shirt every day my husband wore his, just to embarrass him that we might be one of those couples that always dressed alike.

  72. Kelsey January 29, 2015 at 7:10 pm #

    Growing a 5th generation Oregonian as we speak, due in March. PDX PROUD

  73. Valerie January 29, 2015 at 7:14 pm #

    Love being wierd

  74. Teresa January 29, 2015 at 8:27 pm #

    It’s great that our city can come together over common threads, literally.

  75. Ron T January 29, 2015 at 9:24 pm #

    I want to go on a magic carpet ride, You don’t know what we can see.
    Why don’t you tell your dreams to me. Fantasy will set you free.

    Winning these t-shirts would allow opportunity to tell anyone where I’ve been,
    where I am now from and where we’re going as a community.

  76. Dawn January 29, 2015 at 9:40 pm #

    Blazer colors + PDX carpet = Portlandia playwear! I might hike to the top of Mt. Hood in it =) Can’t get more Oregonian than that peoples!!

  77. Jacey January 29, 2015 at 11:06 pm #

    The Timbers one is so cute! I would love to have these!

  78. Brie January 29, 2015 at 11:37 pm #

    PDX carpet will be missed

  79. Samuel January 30, 2015 at 12:02 am #

    Why no Wonterhawks version? Oh yeah, because no one walks all over them! Oh well, either of these would suffice! :)

  80. Claudia January 30, 2015 at 7:36 am #

    I need this big time!

  81. Stephanie January 30, 2015 at 11:43 am #

    I love the Timbers and love that shirt!

  82. Jen S January 30, 2015 at 2:27 pm #

    Great idea to combine the PDX carpet design with the Timber’s and Trailblazer’s colors! What an awesome shirt.

  83. Wendy January 30, 2015 at 5:16 pm #

    Love the new t-shirts. Long live the PDX carpet.

  84. Chris January 30, 2015 at 5:46 pm #

    I’ve slept on the carpet many a night. Sometimes even when it wasn’t necessary. I love my timber Blazers too.

  85. Lisa Borchart January 31, 2015 at 11:20 am #

    Two gotta-have-its! I just know that me wearing the Blazers version of the carpet to the next home game would help them get out of their slump. And what better way to honor the carpet and the Timbers than to be wearing this t-shirt as I get my photo taken with the Axe for the Timber’s billboards. #musthave

  86. Eric January 31, 2015 at 12:02 pm #

    killer tees, I need them…

  87. Tyleen Johnson January 31, 2015 at 7:58 pm #

    I’m not sure you would even NEED a reason to want one of these shirts.
    I’m going with

    “Why not? Keep Portland Weird.”

  88. Bonnie Davidoff January 31, 2015 at 8:37 pm #

    When my family on the east coast ask me what in the world is my my t-shirt I can explain to them the amazingness that is portland and all makes PDX PDX. Whoop whoop

  101. Andrew February 5, 2015 at 3:10 pm #

    I would love the Portland Trailblazers version of this shirt. Because Blazers 4 Life….and it’s a very creative design with good homage to our hometown airport. I’ve lived in Portland longer than that carpet existed (my entire life) and it has wished me many a merry travels and has been there to welcome me home every time.

  102. katie walker February 5, 2015 at 3:22 pm #
