Cincinnati, here we go. The birthplace of pro baseball didn’t take long to become a soccer town—which makes sense when your team is one of the top teams in the USL East.
Not even a year old, FC Cincinnati has been packing Nippert Stadium and dominating the pitch with an average of 16,000 fans rooting on the team to a season-opening 10-2-4 record. Suit up and show your pride in the newest sporting tradition following in the Queen City’s rich history. You down with FCC, yeah you know me!
On the banks of the Red Cedar River in East Lansing, Michigan, sits one of the nation’s oldest (and proudest) land-grant institutions: Michigan State University.
The Green and White’s fierce tradition of academic excellence and athletic prowess have made it a Big Ten force to be reckoned with for over 160 years, and, from the Bres to Beaumont Tower, our super-soft tee bearing those familiar block letters will help you pay homage to the Spartans in style.
Rutherford B. Hayes. Roy Lichtenstein. Mary Oliver. William Fowler. Leslie Wexner. A rundown of Ohio State alumni reads like a who’s-who of changemakers: Presidents. Modern Masters of Art. Pulitzer-Prize Winners. Nobel Laureates. CEOs.
And if that’s not impressive enough, how about the greatest golfer of all time: Jack Nicklaus. We’d be here all day if we tried to list all the brilliant Buckeye alumni, so we’ll stop there (for now). Pay homage to those who have gone before you and break ground on new legacies in this super-soft tee.
The story of the Spartans, Michigan State’s go-to guys in Green and White, began in 1925 in a Lansing greasy spoon called the Coffee Cup.
It’s there that the Scofes brothers, natives of Greece and owners of the Cup, regaled MSU bigwigs with the tale of the 300 Spartan warriors who in 480 B.C, though vastly outmanned, defeated a horde of Persian soldiers numbered in the thousands. This tale of guts and glory was more than enough to convince the officials—the Michigan State Sport Ons soon became the Spartans, and the rest is history.
Since 1936, the AP has been compiling an annual list of the NCAA top teams. To celebrate their 80th year in the business, the number-crunchers at AP ranked the Top 100 college football teams in history. One guess which team sits at No. 1? Bingo: the Buckeyes.
Sure, we all know about their eight national championships. But the craziest stat, the one that took them to the top: OSU has been nationally ranked in every season except three since start of polling. Pay homage.
It’s been called the Game of the Century - the 1966 matchup that saw an undefeated Michigan State take on an undefeated Notre Dame just before Thanksgiving break in Spartan Stadium.
The Spartans were ranked #2, the Irish #1, and all in attendance knew it would be close. But none could have predicted just how close—the game ended in a 10-10 tie, with both sides bagging national championships as a result. It’s just one of the many nail-biters to take place at Spartan Stadium, and a perfect reason to pay homage to history with this MSU raglan.
