Your Kings of Queens, the New York Mets, advanced to the World Series for the first time in fifteen years when they made quick work of the Cubs in a 4-0 National League Championship sweep, brushing aside the much-hyped, “Back to the Future Part II” prediction that the beloved yet cursed Cubbies would finally win the World Series in 2015.
With aces on the mound, New York’s men of October had already put together a record-setting season before the month, taking the NL East Division behind a streak of eleven straight wins, ten coming at homestand Citi Field—a feat featuring two franchise firsts. But once the postseason hit it seemed the Mets picked up a new player: Mr. Daniel Murphy, who flipped an awe-striking, ball-slugging switch and homered in six straight postseasons games, the first player to ever do so. What’s more, Murphy’s never even taken part in a postseason, nor hit homers in six consecutive games in his entire eight-season career. In fact, previously no Mets player had ever hit home runs in six consecutive games.
Suit up as your King of Queens and the best postseason hitter in league history continue to rule the diamond.
As a charter member of the league, your club has been around the block, wrestled rivals D.C. United and the New England Revolution, advanced to the MLS Cup final and won international cups. But now, with a new club encroaching on your territory, it’s time to show everyone how New York runs, Red Bull-style. Stand out amongst the stadium and travel proud in the ultimate New York Red Bulls fan tee. As long as you’re breathing, make every day game day.
The ultimate symbol of club loyalty, separating fans who simply enjoy the beautiful game from you who live for it. Make every day game day, and wear your allegiance to the Red and Blue around your neck and down across your heart with this signature 59” x 7” scarf. Live the colors.
You don’t have to be on the pitch for your feet to draw a crowd. Complete your kit with athletic socks made for fans who live the Red and Blue every day. And while we can’t promise they’ll give you the fancy footwork of Red Bull legends, we can guarantee that with them on, you won’t need such skills to impress the stadium. Run with your club.
It’s never easy being the new kid, but the city that never sleeps has fielded quite the future contender club. The introduction of New York City FC, the 20th league member, was rough and tumble, which you were ready for, but now with your squad settled in, they’re charging toward the playoffs during this, their debut season. And with hallowed grounds as their home, your club is in the perfect place to carry on excellence. The sky’s the limit for your Sky Blue crew.
Get set for a storied tradition with a new tee for your new club. Blue and White, Bronx all the way down to Battery—NYC, Olé, Olé!
The ultimate symbol of club loyalty, separating fans who simply enjoy the beautiful game from you who live for it. Make every day game day, and wear your Sky Blue allegiance around your neck and down across your heart with this 59” x 7” fan favorite. Five boroughs, one city.
Just because you’re not in the middle of all the stadium action, doesn’t mean you have to take a day off from repping the Sky Blue. Whether you’re at your cousin’s wedding or grinding through the work week, sneak in your New York City FC support with the ultimate athletic socks—because for you, every day is game day. Being a diehard never looked or felt so good. There’s only one club in NYC.
Ever play that game where you guess the number of gumballs in a jar? Let’s take it to the next level: How about the number of taxis in the Big Apple? As of 2015, the iconic emblem of the city that never sleeps numbered—you guessed it—13,587.
Because the industry is directly controlled by the city, which allocates a finite number of taxi medallions—the city’s version of a license—the value of a single medallion (and thus a taxi) peaked at—draw a pinky to your mouth—more than $1,000,000. For years the taxi medallion was one of the most sound investments for New Yorkers, and one New Yorker in particular, Evgeny Freidman, hedged his bets on it staying that way. Over the years, he acquired more than 900 medallions. If only he could have foreseen the impact of a little app called Uber.
