The Dept. — Rollerball #6: Long Live ROLLERBALL! Printed on the softest, smoothest, best-looking T-shirt available from American Apparel®. 100% quality cotton construction, screen printed with environment friendly inks. (Orange T-shirt w/Black ink)
The source of this somewhat obscure bit of nerdware/geekanelia is the dystopian science fiction film Rollerball (1975), starring James Caan, as a “rollerball” player – think roller derby – TO THE MAX (and to the death).
“In the future there will be no war. There will only be Rollerball.”
A sort of remake came out in 2002. Hopefully you missed it. I saw some of it being filmed, which was cool. But any recollection I might have of seeing the actual film has been repressed as too traumatic. I saw the first one when it came out and was young enough to soak it up with terrified glee, and to take it far too seriously. It has a terrific ending.
Number 6 from the Houston Energy Rollerball team. The design was custom created in Illustrator based on stills from the 1975 movie starring James Caan and John Houseman.
