Robin's Best Shirt Award, August 5, 2011

While the attendance at last month's Best Shirt Award was a tad on the meager side, the competition for August was coming out of the woodwork.  And, more importantly, there were some very excellent shirts from which the judges had to decide.  The competition was very stiff, and the bookies kept going back on forth on who the front runner might be, and at what odds.  So when the winner was finally announced, it was quite a surprise, especially for the winner.
