Get ready for Football Season

With September Saturdays here, thoughts in the Deep South turn to COLLEGE FOOTBALL!!!


It is a humbling and exhilarating experience to be near college stadiums on Saturdays in the fall.  Team spirit (sometimes known as fanaticism) reigns on the field, in the stands, in the parking lot, and in the backyard.


Get ready to show some school pride and support with college team officially licensed products available in select stores and online.  You will be the envy of the tailgating lot and the neighborhood!



College Teams


Check out our college gear - great for going to the game or outfitting your college student in style. Team pride can be shown in your key chains and lanyards.

Sit in style at the game on your cushion and hard back stadium seats.

Even your grill and patio set can show team spirit with grill toppers, grill mats, and patio set covers.

After a hard day of football, toss your game day wear into a team hamper and rest up for next week.

Start the week wearing a hard hat and sunglasses.

THDiva! regrets that she could not put all of the college and NFL teams in this blog.  If I missed your team (or if I included your team), please send me a photo of your team loyalty.  I look forward to seeing you in action!

Hello tailgaters.


Greengiant here, and I was shopping and found all kind of things for my "man room" from my favorite football team, the Falcons.


Of coarse I would hate for them to get dirty so naturally, I am hanging them on the wall. I did find the perfect thing for wiping my dirty work boots on and I can assure you that it was MONEY WELL SPENT.

Greetings greengiant!  I love the team spirit.  Don't forget to paint your "man room" in your team colors:

And don't forget the gnome:

Be sure to keep your eyes on him - who knows what he will do with your remote control!


Happy football season y'all!

This gnome won't bother your remote, but he will gladly take your money!

As the weather is warmer here in So. Cal, I will have to get one of those customized team aprons for grilling, and a chair for watching my favorite college team. Notre Dame.

Dear Foodieken,


You will want to stay cool under your Notre Dame tent while standing on your Notre Dame doormat. Clean up will be a breeze with your Notre Dame trash can.

Of course your outdoor living center would not be complete without a Notre Dame banner.

Regrettably I could find a Notre Dame gnome to complete your oasis. (Did The Leprechaun have something to do with this?)  

Best wishes and we will be watching this weekend!
