Since I was old enough to understand, sports have always been a part of my life. No, I'm not even remotely an athlete. I am a fan. My main interests are baseball, football and college basketball.
Like other fans, I have favorite teams and I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm with others. I collect sports items related to my favorite teams and players and my closet is filled with more team t-shirts than regular clothes.
The Boston Red Sox are one of my two favorite baseball teams. The New England Patriots is my favorite football team. I follow all their games as much as possible. Since I don't live in New Engand anymore, I don't get to see either team play in person unless they come to play in my state. So, I follow them on television and watch every game I possibly can.
While on vacation in New England, I stopped in a typical tourist trap, filled with souvenirs that we all tend to buy as a reminder of our travels. I purchased many different items all over New England, but these signs are two of my favorites. When I first saw the Red Sox sign, a big grin came over my face. It was so cute and nicely made. It's rustic and if I had to guess, I'd say it's probably hand painted. The wood is rustic, which I love and Red Sox team colors decorate the sign. I knew I had to have it.
While carrying this sign to show my husband, I discovered a similar sign for the New England Patriots. Another big grin! I snatched it up and proudly showed my husband, who liked them as much a I did.
Each sign is 9 1/2" x 3" and show up well on the large wall unit in my living room. They are rotated as the sports seasons change. I really enjoy seeing them and feel this is my 24/7 method of showing my support throughout each team's season.
