Ray Rice up the middle spawns t-shirt design

CANTON, Md. - It's the phrase that's spreading like wildfire through Baltimore after Ray Rice save the drive... and the game Sunday in San Diego.

So naturally, it's already being turned into a t-shirt.

"Hey diddle diddle, Ray Rice up the middle."

Maryland Screen Printers in Canton printed 1,000 shirts Monday, and they say they can barely keep up with demand.

Ravens fans were on their feet during the play that forced the game into overtime. Craig Pfiefer of Maryland Screen Printers was no exception.

"I watched the interview afterwards, and I heard his comment about what was the play that was called, and he said, 'Well, it's just a checkdown... Hey diddle diddle, Ray Rice up the middle.' I immediately started texting my artist to try and get her to come in early," Pfiefer said.

Since Monday, Maryland Screen Printers has printed thousands of shirts. A portion of each sale is going to the Ray Rice Foundation.
