in new haven, an earthquake-inspired tee


Rumbling creativity: On Tuesday, when an earthquake rocked much of the East Coast, the New Haven Open at Yale wasn’t spared. The shaking was so bad, actually, that the tournament issued an official evacuation of the site, halting a match between Elena Vesnina and Jelena Jankovic.

And what better to do than to create some fashion after a natural disaster? The quake, it should be noted, didn’t record any major injuries or deaths at the site, so Joel Cobden of Campus Creations, the retailer at NHO’s on-site shop came up with the shirt above. It was being printed by late Tuesday night and on the grounds by Wednesday. Click to enlarge.

And Irene? The tourney is doing its best to “survive hurricane,” too. Today’s final between Caroline Wozniacki and Petra Cetkovska was moved up to a 1 p.m. start from 5. Can they get ‘er done?! We hope so.
