What I want in my batch shirt

One of the things we talked about at the Pancake Ash Creek batch meeting last Saturday, was a batch shirt.

I had been wanting to have an Ateneo shirt, but at bonfires, I was more interested in interviewing the players than lining up for a shirt that I can't fit or examine.  So I have never owned an Ateneo shirt, not even when I was a student.  Who is the Greatest Procrastinator of them all, the one ring to rule them all?

Anyway, I wanted to know what the Ateneo shirts were like.  The dri-fit Adidas shirts are nice, of course, but so are the prices.  I was afraid that the lesser shirts would not be 100% cotton.  

My ideal shirt would be 100% cotton--so I can use it for my not-so-awaited badminton comeback, and please, I don't want a big number declaring how old I am.  Why not call ourselves the Buttercup Batch, after our batch 'anthem?'  

Batch mate Cathy Babao posted this photo in the Fb group.
I posted a comment in Pinoy Bloggers addressed to Fitz Villafuerte, who sells blogger shirts.  He replied, 'yes we can do custom design shirts. Please email the details and let's see.'

Maybe I'll have an Ateneo shirt to wear to the games, not some blue shirt that I use to watch UAAP.  In my room.  Alone. Hihi.


  1. Hi. Is this the design that you're planning to make? I assume this print will be in the front, if so, then please give me some time to make a costing for this shirt.

    Kindly message me on Facebook or email me in the address above to follow up.


  2. Thanks, Fitz, but that's a Blue Eagles shirt, not a batch shirt. Will let you know once I hear from the Powers-That-Be.
