Super Seattle Sweaters!

I thought I'd do a little homage to one of my favorite cities... especially since I'm heading there tomorrow!

(It's trying so hard to be a Christmas sweater!)
This sweater belongs to the Seattle Metropolitans, which I hear is a hockey team... or was at some point in history. This sweater is old... like early 1900s old. Is the team still around? I don't know, and I'm actually being too lazy today to even bother googling it. Where I live, hockey is something that happens every four years at the Olympics. It's a foreign concept to me really. The only ice around here is what you find in your sweet tea. 

But hey, maybe the Metropolitans aren't your team, maybe you're more of a Totems kind of fan. Don't worry, you can get your vintage wears too!

Seriously, how many hockey teams do you people have?

Of course, Hockey can't have all the fun. The Seattle Supersonics, which is a basketball team if you didn't know, or couldn't figure out from the half basketball on the sweater. Apparently, this was all the rage in the 1980s... the decade when wearing anything was acceptable.

Let's not forget about football either! Alyssa Milano's, a well known sports authority (wha?) endorses and even makes this little beauty! At first, I totally thought someone had just photoshopped her head onto a random model's body, but apparently, this is her line of clothing. Eh, who knew?

I had no idea sports and sweaters got along so well. You know, normally, this post would be a little longer as I'd search the vast interwebs for a few more gems. However, it's getting pretty late in my world, I'm sitting on my couch staring at my suitcase... which is totally mocking me given that I can't decide what to take... on my trip... in the morning... all the way across the country. Anyway, maybe I'll find one of these spectacular sports collectibles while hanging out in the Emerald City. If so, you can bet you'll be seeing it here!

We've had a few hockey teams. The Metropolitans were actually the first American team to hold the Stanley Cup. Currently we have a major junior team kinda like the NCAA level. They play in the WHA affiliated with the CHA that play for the Memorial Cup, Canada's version of the NCAA tournament.

That's cool. My knowledge of hockey is really extremely limited. I do however know that Boston just won the Stanley cup... and Vancouver was NOT happy about it!
