Who ever thought that I would be a screaming football fan?   You know the kind who yells at the TV as if the players could hear you.  Football was NOT a sport we watched on TV in my house growing up.  Don’t get me wrong high school football games were a BIG thing.  Of course the games in HS were mostly about spending time with friends with an occasional glimpse at the score.  Thanksgiving was always interesting with the rivalry between Neptune and Asbury Park High Schools.  I never watched football on TV until hubby came along.  A die-hard Giants fan – many Sundays were spent glued to the TV watching his favorite team.

Whether you are a fan of high school football or are glued to the television for your favorite NFL team, remember there just may be someone who is a newbie to all of this craziness.

I love a recent blog by Amanda Hunter where she shares her take on being a football newbie.  My favorite quote “Monkey see, monkey do. Clap when everyone else claps. And by that same token, sigh or furrow your brow when everyone else does the same.”  

Here are some more  of her tips:

The game clock is merely a suggestion. When the clock says there are 3 minutes remaining, go ahead and settle in because there are 30 minutes remaining (if you’re lucky).

Your lack of football knowledge can be easily disguised with freshly baked and themed appetizers or treats.  

A typical football game lasts 3 hours, probably more, definitely not less. And if all else fails…

Want to get into the spirit of things… why not plan some tailgating fun.  Even an indoor tailgating party will make you a start.  There was a great blog by Kim of The Celebration Shoppe about the “10 Must Haves for Tailgating & Football Season”. Numbers 7, 8, 9 & 10 involve Thirty One products! WoOHoo!!!

What better way than using our spirit collection.  Get his favorite team colors – let’s him know you are paying attention. Who knows that impromptu tailgating party could turn into a Thirty One catalog party where you get LOTS of FREE product.

So, are you ready for football? LUT display

Yes, I am a NY JETS fan so game day is interesting on the rare occasion that the JETS play the Giants.  What is YOUR favorite team?  Here is to a great football season….

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Who’s Ready for Football?

As you can guess by the title – I am excited about football season starting.  Alright, I was never really a football fan until Rob and I got together.  I tolerated the Sunday ritual in the beginning by finding things to keep me busy while the game was on. Then one day a light bulb went off – that AHA moment when I realized, why not just enjoy the time together.  So now we watch football together – I am a little more vocal than he is but it is fun times except when our teams are playing against each other.  He is a die-hard Giants fan.  I am a JETS fan.  No heckling allowed!

The Fall season brings with it lots of different outdoor activities especially football which means tailgating or cold benches as the crisp fall air comes rolling in.  Maybe you are already dreading hauling snacks, planning football parties or even thinking ahead to Super Bowl Sunday. There was a great blog by Kim of The Celebration Shoppe about the “10 Must Haves for Tailgating & Football Season”.  Numbers 7, 8, 9 & 10 involved Thirty One products!  Okay, so some of those may be retired but there are NEW ones to replace them.  Lots of options for tailgating including the NEW Family fun thermal that you can use ICE – yes I said ICE!

The large utility is  must have not only for tailgating but for all of the shopping that takes place BEFORE the event.  You can personalize it in your favorite team colors. How about adding a picnic thermal.  The picnic thermal will hold up to TWO six packs of your favorite drink.  You can add a top to your large utility tote too so everything stays neat and inside your bag.  Many customers also use their picnic thermal and their large utility tote for grocery shopping.

What better way than using our spirit collection or the camo print in a variety of products.  My hubby swore that he wouldn’t carry Thirty One – WRONG!  He now has an out and about lunch tote for work and when asked where he got it tells everyone that his wife sells it.   What a great advertisement for your business, right?  Make sure you always have business cards or mini catalogs handy when you are tailgating for the opportunity to share Thirty One.  Who knows that tailgating party could turn into an impromptu party.

So, are you ready for football?  LUT display I am especially since pre-season has already started.  Don’t be left out in the cold, get yours today and show your school spirit!

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

VT spirit collectionThe large utility is  must have not only for tailgating but for all of the shopping that takes place BEFORE the event.  We have over 40 licensed college logos that you can add to your not only your large utility tote but also to your picnic thermal.  If you like the retro metro bag and what to show your school spirit, be sure to get it BEFORE the end of the month.  Starting with the Fall catalog, the Retro Metro Bag will NOT be in spirit colors.  Here is even a better deal – buy a large utility tote in the month of August and get your Retro Metro Bag or any purse at 50% off.  What a sweet deal.  The picnic thermal will hold up to TWO six packs of your favorite drink.  You can add a top to your large utility tote too so everything stays neat and inside your bag.  Many customers also use their picnic thermal and their large utility tote for grocery shopping.
