5 Things You Need to Know Before You Go



 
Football is back, baby! College football kicked off last weekend, and NFL last night with the Seahawks bringing in their first victory of the season. I had a bet that the Seahawks would win, and the world's most valuable gum chewer didn't let me down. 


I don't generally like to give free marketing advice, but I'm looking at you here Orbitz to step up to the plate and put a contract on this guy's chompers. Side note: I usually have trouble finding sports GIFs, but  simply googling "Pete Carroll Gum Chewing" provided me with about 4,954,432 to choose from.

 The US Open is well underway, with the women's finals taking place on Sunday and the Men's finals on Monday. Last night Roger Federer played a hell of a match against Gael Monfils (yes, we had football on one television and tennis side by side on the other television last night) and came back to win after being two sets down. On the women's side, the American's still have our girl Serena to cheer for! She plays someone with a name I can't pronounce, nor do I care to attempt to retype, at 3:45pm today!

 If you're gonna watch one game this weekend....


I have a drinking game for you. You ready? It is just ONE PHRASE. How simple is that? It will make your Sunday/Sunday Night/Monday Night football games so much more fun to watch. 

Anytime someone says "NFL Substance Abuse Policy" drink. 

That's it. That's the game. You'll be hammered in no time. You're welcome. 

29 players are starting the season on a suspension. TWENTY NINE! You had one job! Don't do drugs, don't beat your wife. Ok fine, two jobs. Several of these suspended players could be on your fantasy team, check this list to make sure you aren't starting one of these morons. 

So i'm not quite done yet with my shop, but since you made it to number five on this list, I'm going to give you the first look at some T-shirts I've been working on for this year's football season! Some of you guys asked me to make some school/team specific shirts, but I got anxious this morning about how a trademark works on a hashtag, and temporarily took some of the school specific shirts down. If anyone has any advice on the matter, let me know! 

BUT, with that said, I can still make color specific shirts for your school/team! If you want me to make any specific colors for any of the shirts, just leave me a comment and I'll make it happen!

  5. GIVE ME ALL OF THE SHIRTS! Also, I'm going to play that drinking game on Sunday. At my wedding shower. I already warned friends and family that having this party on the first Cowboys game of the season means I'll be disappearing... now it also means I'll be drunk before anyone else ;)

  8. It is like we are one with those tee shirt pics! I need one of each...especially the pink jersey one ;) And I might seriously be hammered if I do the drinking game while watching my team - The Cleveland Browns! I mean you know the first 10 minutes alone they will talk about Josh Gordon a million times! lol!

  9. Love the shirts! (PS - will you break into an allergic reaction if you make a Vandy shirt? Asking for a friend)

  10. hahahaha I LOVE the one with the judging of pink jerseys! We have actual proper football as our national sport here (aka soccer), but I still judge those ladies all the same - wear team colors, or GTFO in my opinion ;) any chance of that tshirt being available in navy with white lettering?

  23. I love the judging tee, I'm glad I'm not the only one judging pink jerseys. When an NFLs team color is pink, then I will accept the pink jersey!

    ReplyDelete

  29. If it's anything like what my cake decorator said for my husband's groom's cake (Carolina Panthers), she could have gotten in trouble if she had made it using any of their trademarked stuff because you have to pay (out the rear end) to be able to use teams' trademarks. She said it's the same way with Univ of AL too. If I'm not mistaken she said there's only one bakery in Tuscaloosa that is allowed to legally make stuff with UA's trademarks.
