If you think at all like I do, you wouldn’t think of Target as the first store to have a huge selection of sports apparel. However, this is far from the truth!
Target has things representing the NBA, NFL, NCAA, MLB, and the NHL. They carry apparel (for kids, babies, men and women), home decor, sports equipment, tailgating gear, and even Pillow Pets!
In your local Target store, you will find a lot of the apparel and gear of your local and state sport’s teams, but if you cheer for a team that isn’t where your from, you can order that team’s items online.
Check out Target’s Fan Shop and see for yourself!
Football season is underway! I attended a pre-season NFL game last week and watched college football ALL day long on TV yesterday (not particularly by choice). Football fans everywhere are anxiously anticipating the upcoming season and wondering if their favorite teams have what it takes to have a successful season!
I found these wall decals at Home Depot the other day while loading up on some fall gardening supplies. I thought it was perfect timing with the sports season starting AND for the hundreds of thousands of college students that will be moving into apartments and dormitories if they haven’t already. Wall decals are perfect for apartments and dorms because they are easy to apply and aren’t permanent. They just peel off and most of the time can be reused on different walls.
Being a long time football fan I’ve collected a decent amount of NFL jerseys. I started off as a die hard John Elway fan and moved on from there. The only problem I see with being a sports fan is the revolving door for players that seemed to be the mainstay now. Gone are the days of the franchise player that stays with a team due to loyalty. Today the almighty dollar makes moving teams the same as changing socks.
So now I’m left with some cool Elway throwback jerseys but I also have a closet full of jerseys for the guys that I thought would stick around but have now moved on to lesser talented teams. My better half asked me what I wanted for my impending birthday and it struck me that I’d like to have an authentic jersey with my name on it. It seems to be the best way to eliminate buying a new jersey every season. Authentic jerseys from the NFL shop run form $250.00 to $300.00 but you know you are getting quality NFL gameday jerseys and not low quality mesh. I thought I wanted the throwback orange but I think I’ll push for the blue home jersey with a nice 52 (linebacker number) number!
Game day used to be a day reserved for traditionally male NFL fans to cheer for their team when they win and Monday morning quarterback when they lose. However, over the last couple of years I’ve noticed more and more women getting into the sport which is an excellent thing not only for the NFL but for relationships everywhere. In the past men were shunned for taking an entire Sunday to watch football and women felt pushed to the side for a game. Those days are quickly disappearing as more and more women are seen sporting the jersey of their favorite football player.
For those guys who are lucky enough to have a significant other that enjoys the grid iron game then use this holiday season to get your lady dolled up in the latest NFL apparel for women and if your better looking half has not picked up on the greatest game ever…well, get ready to do some “home improvement” jobs this Sunday!
