Power linemen from all over the country and beyond descended on Overland Park, Kansas with their families and duffel bags full of T-Shirts. It's one of the most anticipated events at the International Lineman's Rodeo.
Each shirt was more elaborate than the next as these shirts are a source of pride.
Many honor their unions or utilities. Others pay tribute to their fallen bretheren. But all are designed to impress and be a hot trading item.
The crowd quickly established their favorites and we got some fun photos of T-Shirts that caught our eye.
