Everybody loves bacon!  Okay, maybe not everybody.  But if you don't like bacon then stop reading this post because you're a terrible American and I don't want to be your friend anymore.

Scratch-and-Sniff Bacon Shirt

Okay.  Now that those bacon haters are gone I can share some great news.  The Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, a minor league affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies has unveiled a brand new home uniform that features a delicious strip of bacon on their caps.

The team jersey will feature the word "Pigs" underlined with a bacon strips while the team's pants will have long, delicious-looking bacon stripes running down the side.

The team store will also be selling a bacon strip t-shirt with a scratch-and-sniff logo.

That's right, if you scratch the logo you get a whiff of bacon.

This is a great way to bring the smell of bacon with you wherever you go.  It's also a good way of getting your friends to smell your shirt, if you're into that kind of thing.

While the bacon logo is sure to be popular, fans of the old logo featuring an angry-looking pig can rest easy.  The old logo will still be sported by the players on weekday games. Plus, we now have an explanation as to why that pig is so angry.

Will having uniforms featuring smoked breakfast meat improve the player's performance on the field?  Who knows?  But, it will undoubtedly make sales of team apparel skyrocket.  At least until Michelle Obama complains and the team is forced to change their logo to a cup of fat-free yogurt or a big tall glass of beet juice.
