The NBA Playoffs are Here, Do You Care?

The NBA Playoffs are here, and if you’re team isn’t among the sixteen, you probably aren’t too invested. Sure, you’ll watch the last five minutes of a few first round games, you’ll catch the highlights on SportsCenter, but overall you’ll function as a casual fan. Perhaps you occupy the space between fringe playoff spectator and full-on playoff junkie. If this is the case, you’ll find yourself searching for small stories and tidbits that can carry your interest to the Finals. Will Lob City or Memphis take the next step? What becomes of the Kobe-less Lakers? Is San Antonio finally too old to last? Can the Knicks return to dominance in the East? Then, of course, there’s the ever-present band wagon that all basketball fans can jump on at any time: not who to root for but against.

For the past few years, the team of the viewer’s ire has been the Miami Heat. Ever since the “Big Three” got together and promised multiple championships, they’ve had their haters. That group may have gone underground for a while following 2012’s championship run, but there still around, just waiting for the chance to pop up again. As we all know, the Heat (Lebron) did this to themselves. They made sure that one championship wouldn’t be good enough. After all, if King James hadn’t promised upward of half a dozen rings, wouldn’t they have already fallen into place with the great teams of history? Be great for a long time, just win one championship, and you’ve got your spot in antiquity. That wasn’t good enough for a sound bite back in 2010. However misguided or immature, one title and a boatload of wins wasn’t good enough for Lebron and company for that fleeting moment.

The Heat will be scrutinized through every step of the playoffs. Through every nail-biting win, tough loss, and questionable call the Haters will be looking to point, and the Heat will be driven by it. Miami will be driven to blow past every opponent, through every game on their way to a second trophy. Here’s the rub: the Heat don’t have to go 12-0 on their way to the Finals. If it takes the full twenty-eight games to get the “Heatles” another ring, it won’t matter. All they have to do is win it all, and no one will remember what happened in the preceding three rounds. Easier said than done, of course, but this message isn’t for Miami, it’s for the rest of us. For those who want to scratch the back of every coach and team that blocks a Lebron shot in the 4th quarter, save your breath. Save it for the Finals, when it really matters. If the Heat don’t get there, you’ll know when the climax is coming, and you’ll know when to pounce. Odds are Miami will endure a typical “great team” run and be matched against a worthy opponent. Put your eggs in the West’s basket and hope they hatch in June. Next year no one will remember what happened in April, so set your sights on summer.

Summer is just around the corner and so is summer attire. Prep yourself for the epic heat of the coming months with a t-shirt that speaks volumes. Awesome Sports Logos has a large collection of great fitting, great feeling t-shirts that will make you the center of attention. Browse through our collection that’s as deep as the Denver Nuggets bench. We spent a lot of time discussing Miami in this blog. Here are our awesome Florida t-shirts – The Dade City Kumquats and The Boca Raton Cougars.

Video Spotlight of the Boca Raton Cougars T-Shirt


Fifty Shades of Grey in an Awesome Sports Logos World

I could tell from that look in her eye and the way that she touched my shoulder that….wait a minute, I can’t do this. I’m not a romance novel writer, I’m a t-shirt guy. Under thousands of Christmas trees will be copies of the book that has sold over 65 million copies worldwide, 50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James. Meanwhile, the number of Awesome Sports Logos funny sports t-shirts under Christmas trees will be one or two fewer.

So curl up, make sure you’re alone as we present 50 shades of Grey T-shirt parody by Awesome Sports Logos. The first thing we want to make sure is that you are properly protected. You can’t be too careful these days. Therefore, make sure you have your rubbers, Akron Rubbers that is. Akron is the rubber capital of the United States.

 
Now that we have our Rubbers, it’s time to play a little fantasy. What better fantasy than the mythical creature, the Chupacabra. The Albuquerque Chupacabra is one of our best sellers and the Chupacabra is one of the most popular cryptids behind Big Foot and the Loch Ness Monster.
 
 
Since we’re talking fantasy, who doesn’t love an older woman who knows what she wants and gets it every time. Those women are known as Cougars, prowling the upscale streets of Boca Raton.
We are equal opportunity on this blog. Really, I don’t want to be but my wife is making me do this part. Ladies, we present you with the finest stud, the Lexington Studs.
You want your stud to be as big as the state of Texas. And in Texas, there is a ton of Roadkill. You’re right, dead animals are not a turn on but I need to sell some t-shirts here. I stared at my computer for a long time and nothing is sexy about a dead armadillo.
 
Ladies, now that you’ve found your Stud, it’s time to be a Beefeater. OMG, that fit in perfect. Maybe I should write trashy romance novels after all?
 
San Francisco Swallows and Savannah Seamen. You do the math on these two.
 
 
We know, we know, you’ve had to minimize this blog because it has you all hot and bothered. We encourage you to keep going, in fact, in no time, you’ll be gushing with your Houston Gushers awesome t-shirt. We actually have two grey Gushers t-shirts because every once in a while, adding one more to the party spices things up! Houston is oil country and this wooden derrick in the shape of an “H” gushing out a baseball is a cool t-shirt to have in your closet.
 
Not bad at all for my first try. You think Fabio would wear one of our t-shirts on the cover? I support him by eating his “I can’t believe it’s not butter”.

This blog was a blast and on a serious note, I can’t thank each and every one of you enough for your support this year.
 
Happy Holidays from all of us at Awesome Sports Logos!

Awesome T-Shirt Spotlight on The Boca Raton Cougars

Cougar has become such a popular term in today’s society. In fact, if I yelled, “check out that Tiger”, you’d probably turn pretty quick. If I say, “check out that Cougar”, you’d probably say, “where is she?” There are now Cougar dating sites. In fact the many think the term Cougar originated in Western Canada  on the dating site cougardate.com.

So what actually is a Cougar? A Cougar is a slang term for a woman in her 30’s or 40’s who pursues much younger males to engage in “relations”. Like the animal, when Cougars are hungry, they’ll stop at nothing to get what they want.

Boca Raton has an overabundance of Cougars. Boca is a very affluent community and with that comes a lot of divorcees. The combination breeds a terrific Cougar hunting ground. You can find Cougars during the day in shopping areas but the Cougar is mostly aggressive at night at the local hotspots. Here is our awesome t-shirt, the Boca Raton Cougars.
 
    

 What we’ve learned is that there is actually a name for a male that dates younger women. We are called Manthers. I say we because my wife is 13 years younger than me. I didn’t go searching for a younger woman but I’m also not going to complain. I’ve dated Cougars and now I’m a Manther. These names are hilarious. In fact, our crack research team tells me that there are actually names for different female age groups. Here they are:

30-40  A Cougar.  If the Cougar has cubs, they can also be called a MILF.

40-55  A Dragon  A little bit older but still can be ferocious

55 and up  Betty White.  Still has the energy to get it done.

We hope you like our look at Cougars and our baseball team, The Boca Raton Cougars. With the MLB Winter Meetings happening next week in Nashville, if this were a real team, they’d certainly be on the prowl. I think with this team though, “Hot Stove” talks takes on an entirely different meaning.

Remember, there is still plenty of time to get your funny holiday gift order in. We’ll get some cool t-shirts to you asap and you won’t be sorry.

Breaking Down the Presidential Swing States from a T-shirt Perspective

Breaking Down the Presidential Swing States from a T-shirt Perspective

I write this on the evening of the final Presidential Debate. This is clearly a biased opinion but this debate would be a lot cooler if the former Governor of Massachusetts was wearing a Boston Accents T-shirt and the President was sporting a Cocksville Blockers awesome t-shirt. Now we’re talking! Okay, I’m awake from my dream now. We don’t get political here, we just want to have fun but there are some key swing states that will ultimately decide this upcoming presidential election. Many of those swing states share a common theme and that’s the coolest t-shirts out there from Awesome Sports Logos!

Florida

We still need to get to that “Florida Hangin’ Chads” t-shirt but for now we offer two funny t-shirts.

The Boca Raton Cougars. Grrrr, those Cougars are dangerous.
 

 

 The Dade City Kumquats.
 

I think we might have to hit the Kumquat festival in Dade City this January to sell some of these t-shirts. I love the name and everything about this logo. 

 Iowa

 

How sweet would it have been to see one of the candidates riding the streets of Decorah on a float sporting this funny t-shirt for the yearly Nordic Fest? We wanted to create a logo that depicted this awesome event and a troll playing baseball and using his club instead of a bat really fit what we were looking for. Similar to Dade City, I can’t wait to take Awesome Sports Logos on the road to Decorah!

 

Nevada

 Okay, quick tip as a former resident of this state. It’s pronounced Neh-Vad-ah, not Nah-Vad-ah. You pronounce this right when visiting and they’ll think you’re a local. That’s the first thing I learned. Tip number two, if you’re visiting Las Vegas, pull up a map on your smart phone and tell your cab driver to take streets like Koval and Russell or Desert Inn. Don’t get on the strip with your cab driver! The only thing spinning won’t be the slot machines; it will be your meter. Nevada is due for another t-shirt design from us in the near future. For now, we offer the Las Vegas Snake Eyes.
 

 

I will never understand why a pro sports team didn’t use this. I had one person tell me that Snake Eyes are bad luck when you gamble. Yes, it’s the t-shirt that’s making you lose all of your money and building those gorgeous buildings.

 

Ohio

Ohio may be the swing state that ultimately decides this election. One of the biggest topics in this presidential campaign is the economy and jobs. This is huge in Akron, Ohio which is considered the tire capitol of the United States. Goodyear is based in Akron which is the fifth largest city in Ohio. Other nicknames for Akron are “The Rubber City” and the “Rubber Capitol of the World”. Therefore, if either candidate wants to get some serious mojo going in Ohio these last few days, they should proudly wear one of our best sellers, The Akron Rubbers!
 

 

 Virginia

Let’s just say that this unincorporated community in Virginia doesn’t really have enough votes to make a difference. I don’t even know if they have enough people to even call itself a community? Sorry Climax, the legalization of moonshining isn’t one of the major issues of this campaign. However, you receive huge bonus points for naming your community Climax and for having a yearly fiddle festival. Who doesn’t love that? Here is the Climax Fiddlers!
 

 

We left out swing states Colorado, New Hampshire and Wisconsin because we haven’t had enough time to come up with some cool t-shirt names in these states. Give us time people, we’ll get there soon. So, if you’re asking for my political opinion or who’s going to win, I plead the 5th. Some may read this expecting a serious article on swing states. My reply, this is serious, we’re talking t-shirts here. Let’s be honest, if you told the candidates instead of suits they could only wear their favorite t-shirt that would show a lot wouldn’t it?  A little more than a blue tie or a red tie, that’s for sure.

As always, thanks for reading. You guys rock and I appreciate all of the love and support for Awesome Sports Logos.

Sincerely,

Gavin Spittle
