Thompson: Athletic shirt great for sleeping, too

If you're not familiar with the Tech Tee T-shirt, you should be. (These T-shirts also go by the name "Dry Fit"). Instead of cotton, they're made with a polyester blend.

Athletes like them because they'll keep you warm and dry in the winter and cool and dry in the summer. Why do I like them so much? Because they're great to sleep in. The slick polyester material will ...
