Bill Belichick's girlfriend wears 'I love my Croatian boyfriend' shirt

Here's your offseason reminder that Bill Belichick is a lovable human being despite the emotionless robot act he puts on during news conferences. Belichick's girlfriend, Linda Holliday, posted a photo of herself wearing this shirt when Croatia's match against Mexico began Monday in their final game of group play.
Where do you get a shirt like this? Also, today I learned Bill Belichick is Croatian. From a 2005 story by The Boston Globe's Bob Ryan (referencing Bill's father Steve):
Steve Belichick came from classic football country -- Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio. He was the youngest of five children born to Ivan (known as John) and Mary Barkovic Bilicic. Yes, the name is Croatian and it was Anglicized, not at Ellis Island as so many others were, but by a first grade teacher in Monessen, Pa., where all the Belichick children were born.
And now I desperately want to hear Rob Gronkowski address the honcho as Coach Bilicic.
