Anybody know if the "blue" from CafePress, as in the baseball jersey shirt sleeves, is more of a navy or a royal blue? I love the baseball jerseys, the slogans just make them a must-have.

I would love to wear one of these at our local globo-gym. It is made up of a sea of teal machines, and I am not sure you could find a barbell if you tried! Would that make me a Wanker too?
