Juju for the Ultimate Sports Fan

Most men are fans of one sports team or another.  My father, for example, is a rabid LSU Tiger fan (he and the entire state of Louisiana).  Father’s Day, Birthdays, Christmas—we know that any gift will be a winner with him if it has an LSU Tiger logo attached!

Credit for these over the top custom designed New Balance athletic shoes goes to my brother & sister-in-law.  Yes, the color combo is on the loud side, but a true LSU fan will recognize the beauty of these shoes and the mystical juju they bring to fight the evil empire (otherwise known as Alabama)!

Several sportswear/shoe companies allow you to custom design shoes online to order, but what I like about the New Balance is that it allows you to add a peronalized phrase or word on each shoe just below the ankle.  Note the: “Geaux” “Tigers” on his shoes personalized for him—this is the war cry for all Tiger fans.

So, if your husband/brother/son/father is a Longhorn, an Aggie, a Tiger, or other sports fan (NFL, NBA, NCAA, MLB, etc) get them a pair of these unique shoes!  Pick the color, the style, and the words (like a favorite saying):  Hook Em Horns, Gig Em Aggies, etc.

Spice It Up: It is simply not game day if you aren’t flying your team colors, and letting the neighborhood know who you are rooting for. 

Your uber fan will be the talk of the neighborhood with his own flamingo yard ornament from Fan Flamingos in his team colors.
My father and his friends were ahead of their time.  Before all the team logowear became available and popular (think 1970s & 1980s), they had pants custom made for their treks to Tiger Stadium.

giving them the skeptical
"Who are these crazy people?" look
For your viewing pleasure, I am including a photo of them at a game.  Yes, the pants are baby blue, double ply polyester.  Hideous…yet so awesome!
Today’s sportswear is a bit more tasteful.  These team logo cargo shorts are perfect for game day whether he is at the stadium, or in his barca-lounger watching it on the big screen.
Buy these items for Father’s Day so, come August, he’ll be ready for the season!
