Tired of people not getting out of your way when you’re walking down Sixth Street?

A Washington, D.C.-based T-shirt company has just the cure, and it includes supporting the Texas Longhorns. The company, called BreakingT,  has released a shirt that honors Texas quarterback Tyrone Swoopes and the “18 Wheeler” package.

Unfortunately for Swoopes, he won’t be able to claim any of the proceeds due to NCAA rules.

After the term went mainstream following Texas’ double-overtime win over Notre Dame in front of a record audience, it seems people outside Texas want in on the action.

The design features a big rig with the number 18 boldly placed on the front. Underneath is a Texas flag license plate, and the truck has a set of Longhorns protruding from it.

The shirt is priced at $24, and can be purchased in sizes up to 3-XL. Chances are at least a few will appear at Longhorns games in the coming weeks.
