Lane Kiffin T-shirts set sail for Haiti

Jan 13, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

Wait, don’t burn those Lane Kiffin T-shirts, Tennessee fans! Dan Burks, co-owner of the West Knoxville apparel store Hound Dogs, wants to save the maligned garments from the wrath of scorned Volunteers fans and send them somewhere where they’ll do some good: earthquake-ravaged Haiti.
Burks told the Knoxville News Sentinel today that any customer who brings in an “It’s Time” T-shirt can get 20 percent off the purchase of a new shirt, and he’ll ship the old shirts to Haiti, which was devastated by an earthquake on Tuesday.


Oh, the humanity.
From the Knoxville News Sentinel:

The merchant — whose accountant just returned from a mission trip to Haiti — said he had seen comments on a chat board from angry fans who were interested in burning shirts. Burks said he felt pretty bad when he went to bed last night, but news of the natural disaster “puts it in perspective for me.”

I wonder, does this offer also apply to “Hello Kiffin” T-shirts? Because that would be weird.

    will the kiffin rename their litle boy (knox)? Will he be called Calli ? Time will tell with it all…..I am glad he is gone. I felt he always looked a little “shifty”

    I think it is hilarious. Now one of these big time schools knows how it feels when they steals a coach from a smaller D-I school or from some small school trying to make a name for itself. Can anyone remember Dennis Erikson “This is the place I want to be…”
    Anyway…Orange is such an ugly color maybe he left because he couldn’t find anything in Tennessee’s color’s that looked good and not like some old guy on a golf course.

    Orange is a beautiful color. Especially a sea of orange coming out of Neyland Stadium after a big win! Kiffin was too young and too mouthy anyway.
