How about that? We did it! It was a great turnout and even though we didn't manage to get the concentration of Gold Shirts that I was hoping for, I feel that we represented CyclONEnation well. I am going to call it a booming success.
Due to popular demand I am going to do a VERY short run on the T-shirts that we created for this game. All of the profits go to the local DFW Alum group and I think maybe we've earned a little cred over the past week or so. Please order some shirts and help us fund some of our upcoming activities which will include an epic Cyclone Tailgate in December for the TCU football game. We have really big plans for that and as you have seen, much like Pizza Hut... We deliver! Tell your buddy, wife, girlfriend, kids, parents, office friend, husband or just any schmuck on the street. We aren't picky, I'll even sell to Hawkeye fans since they seem to like coming to our games (I even talked to a guy wearing a UNI shirt, wtf?). Feel free to use the link on your facebook, newsletters, blogs or whatever other way you can get the word out.
I changed the T-Shirt style on the men's short sleeve to a more "Gold" color so what you saw in the stands isn't necessarily what you'll receive. They should more resemble the long sleeve t-shirts that had a nice ISU gold tone to them. The shirts run a little on the small side so if you aren't sure, order a size larger than normal. Although I can't guarantee it, the shirts should arrive before the Big 12 Tourney starts as long as I get the orders in by Wed night. Once the deadline passed the shirts won't be available. It's a hard deadline so don't wait, order ASAP. The shirts run about $20 + shipping depending on the style. We have short sleeve men and women tee, long sleeve tee and fitted women available.
The website is live and will end after we avenge the WVU loss on Wed night
Thanks to everyone who chipped in. It was a fun day in Ft Worth albeit a less than elegant win for the good guys.
Remember that we are hoping for 2 more games in DFW this season. Arlington is home to the Final Four so don't miss out on your chance to blend in like a local!
