The Mike Zimmer Foundation Has T-Shirts, And They're Pretty Great

Since his hiring in January of 2014, Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has been winning over fans with his no-nonsense style. The coach recently had the official launch of his charitable foundation, a charity he started in honor of his wife Vikki. Vikki passed away suddenly in 2009, and he started this foundation to keep her giving spirit alive.

The purpose of The Mike Zimmer Foundation is to better the lives of children in need, something that they intend to do through various initiatives that you can read about here. To that end, they have introduced three pretty nice t-shirts that you can acquire to support the foundation.

One is a purple t-shirt with one of Zimmer's most well-known quotes on it: "Don't tell me about the labor. Just show me the baby."

The second is a camouflage shirt with a more motivational quote: "A good coach can change a game. A great coach can change a life."

My personal favorite, however, is the last one, which depicts our favorite head coach with a bit of an American flag background and encourages you to "Vote Zimmer 2016." Sounds like a solid write-in option to me.

The first two shirts have the logo of the Mike Zimmer Foundation on the back, while the "Vote Zimmer" shirt has a #VoteZimmer2016 hashtag on the back.

I can see myself picking up one of these in the near future. . .after all, it's for a good cause. Any of the new merchandise catching your eye, folks?
