These Ugly Old Bay Tie-Ins Make Me Wish the Ravens Hadn’t Won the Super Bowl
McCormick is really killing my late-Ravens-Super-Bowl-win afterglow, here. The spice company that sells the locally adored Old Bay seasoning has finally figured out how they are going to cash in on the Ravens’ Super Bowl crown, and it’s awful. There is a new commemorative Old Bay canister that is an unholy alliance of the hyper-modern Ravens logo and the ubiquitous spice blend’s infinitely quaint design.
But that’s not all. In an even less-inspired move, McCormick is also selling T-shirts in Ravens purple with “BAYLIEVE” written across the chest. Oh and just for good measure, there’s the top half of an Old Bay can hanging out over the ill-advised pun.
