STILLWATER, Oklahoma -- Pistol Pete and Eskimo Joe join forces on a T-shirt. The shirt was unveiled under the Joe Dome on Monday during Eskimo Joe's 36th Anniversary Celebration.

The co-branded T-shirt features two icons familiar around the globe. Pistol Pete, ESPN.com's reigning champion of sports mascots, and Eskimo Joe, the world-famous brand developed by Stan Clark, founder and CEO of Eskimo Joe's. The two have partnered to create the T-shirt.

The new shirts are available at all Eskimo Joe's locations, online at eskimojoes.com, or by calling 800-256-JOES.

"We are proud to be associated with Eskimo Joe's and Stan Clark, one of our most successful and beloved alums," said Kyle Wray, associate vice president of enrollment and marketing at OSU. "Stan and Eskimo Joe's share a mission with OSU, and that is one of service and commitment to the people of Oklahoma. The family atmosphere in his restaurants and shops aligns with OSU's dedication to those same students, families and alums, who we care so much about."

"Eskimo Joe's is honored to officially partner with OSU to create co-branded products our mutual fans will enjoy," said Clark. "The Stillwater community and OSU have generously supported us for the past 36 years, and we are extremely proud to be an integral part of the OSU family."

Clark said that his love for Stillwater and OSU is the main reason that he hasn't expanded his restaurants outside of Stillwater. "Hopefully, when people think of Stillwater, Oklahoma, they think of OSU and Eskimo Joe's," Clark said.
