The T-shirt was on sale outside the grounds (of the Wimbledon tennis tournament—ed.): “Kiss my Ace.”
15 October 2005, The Spectator (London, UK), “Red hot poker” by Simon Nixon, pg. ?:
Billboards along every main road invite you to ‘Kiss my Ace’. Poker is the new snooker for those who watch late-night television.
9 December 2008, Reading (PA) Eagle, “Muhlenberg students beat teachers in charity volleyball tourney,” pg. V7:
The idea was to incorporate volleyball terminology into your team’s name. There ended up being many clever ones and a few random ones.
In the clever category was Kiss my Ace, Ace Kickers, You Got Served, and Will Work for Sets.
