Uni We Love:
In honor of the passing of Mr. Yogi Berra, we’re making the Yankee Pinstripes our uniform of the week.
Mr. Berra, known both for his prowess on the diamond and his way with words, was a towering figure not just in the world of sports but in the culture at large.
Some of our favorite Yogi-isms: "The future aint what it used to be."
"If the world were perfect, it wouldn’t be."
"When you come to a fork in the road, take it."
Yogi had a penchant for turns of phrase that seemed silly at first glance, but revealed some deep knowledge about the hidden nature of the world upon further reflection. We salute him.
Reading Material: In addition to the NYT's obituary of record for Mr. Berra, Charles Pierce says what we're all thinking about Peyton Manning, and a fascinating deep dive on Little League in Camden, New Jersey, thriving in less than ideal conditions.
Team of the Week:
The Stuttgart Eagles Basketball Team are our winners this week. These are the children of American military personnel stationed in Stuttgart, Germany. They play against local German youth teams and represent the USA.
Here they are looking ready to soar in our one of our Elite Team Packs. You can check out some of our other sharp custom basketball uniforms here.
This past June, several Eagles squads competed in the United World Games in Klanefurt, Austria, including the under 12, under 14, under 16, and under 18 boys, and the under 15 girls. Basketball is one of the fastest growing international sports, and we’re proud to outfit these hoops ambassadors. Check them out HERE.
