Sweet STRIPED Sixteen

25 Mar

Oh, how I love March Madness!  And those first four days are always such a ride.  How about those Dayton Flyers?  Crazy!  And Syracuse, Kansas, Duke all out so early – wow!   And how mean to match up Kentucky v. Louisville for the Sweet Sixteen!

Now, we are down to just 16 teams, and of course, stripedshirt has colors for all (except UCLA, what is up with light blue and yellow???)  Who are you picking to go all the way to Dallas on April 7?

Me?  Who doesn’t love a Cinderella.  I’m Flyers all the way!  Whoever your team, get a stripedshirt to Show Your Colors for your next game, for always!

As always, the tourney has had some surprises – a credit union??? (FGCU) – and lots of fun! After first 2 rounds, we are down to our sweet 16, a great group to STRIPE UP FOR!  I’m still cheering for my Buckeyes, go Ohio State!  But wow to that Iowa State match up, I wish the Cyclones could advance too.  4 Big 10 teams move forward – that’s huge!

My favorite player of the tourney?  No, not OSU’s Aaron Craft.  Rather the JOLLY GIANT of Miami, #42, Reggie Johnson.  Google him.  This football linebacker is downright adorable on the court.

Whoever your favorite of the sweet sixteen, get a stripedshirt to show their colors at

Back to NCAA Hoops! Striped Madness Soon!

4 Feb

Kids in stripes for NCAA college hoops


OK, that was a pretty intense Superbowl game, eh?  I wasn’t really rooting for anyone, a bit against the Ravens b/c they took out my Patriots.  It was a snore-ville 1st half, then the lights went out and everything changed.  Awesome game.  And Beyonce – whether lip syncing or live – was pretty awesome too.

And now that football is really over, and we have just one week before pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training (Red Sox, Tues, Feb 12!!!), and just 3 weeks til our first MLB Spring Training games (Feb 22), let’s focus for a minute on COLLEGE HOOPS! YEAH!

As we head toward March Madness, and the fun of Selection Sunday on St. Patricks Day, Sunday, March 17, here’s who’s looking good with just over 4 weeks left in the regular season.

We have colors for most so get your stripedshirt now to cheer on your favorite team from now right through to the championship game April 8 in the Georgia Dome.

Welcome Back College Hoops!

9 Nov

Yeah!  Today is Opening Day for College Hoops, and what a great way to open it up – momentarily - with Michigan State versus UConn, in Germany, at an Air Force Base.  Beautifully timed around Veteran’s Day. How great is this!  Goosebumps.  And what a way for UConn’s new coach Kevin Ollie (former NBA star himself) to make his debut, with 3 Germans on the UConn team, btw.  Love that Tom Izzo, last year starting things off on a Carrier, this year on a Base.  He’s the best.

Other great games kick us off tonight too:
Ohio State v. Marquette

Maryland v. Kentucky

Florida v. Georgetown

It’s BACK! So excited! And as we look to the full, fun season, here’s the pre-season rankings – and of course where stripedshirt matches up with the top teams.

Go to now and get colors to cheer on your favorite NCAA basketball team all season long!

Final Four – Get Striped Up to Support!

26 Mar

Next Sat night, 3/31, 4 teams battle it out for the NCAA men’s basketball championship. So excited my Ohio State Buckeyes are still in the hunt, taking on Kansas, both beating #1 seeds to face each other. And Louisville surprised everyone, now having to face Kentucky. It will not get much better than seeing Pitino and Calipari coach against each other. Awesome! We, of course, have stripes for all four teams, and plenty of time to order em up now to make sure you are supporting those teams at the end of March Madness. Buy em now at GO BUCKS!
