Has your huge Philly sports fan collected tons of t-shirts? Are you always looking for that perfect birthday gift for the Philly sports fan in your life?
Let’s face it, Philly fans are all heart. Whatever the season and whichever the team, Phillies, Eagles, Flyers, or Sixers, when our teams are doing well the city is just happy. People are a little more chatty when pouring their coffee at Wawa, we see more smiles on the streets, and the fan gear comes out in force. When the teams are not playing up to Philly standards, well…maybe we shouldn’t talk about that…it can get ugly! You have just found the perfect birthday gift for the Philly sports fan in your life.
This birthday gift for Sue was so much fun to put together. She collected some great t-shirts. There is a whole set that follows the Phillies amazing run leading up to their 2008 World Series victory. Sometimes you just can’t choose which side of the shirt you like best…so why not use both? The schedule or roster that’s on the back may be the best part!
Since Sue’s daughter, Lauren, went to Penn State, the Nittany Lions just had to represent. I just love the Joe Pa tee and of course, THON, is a huge part of the Penn State experience. If you are not familiar with THON (Dance Marathon), it is the largest student run philanthropy in the world and raises millions to combat pediatric cancer.
The best part of creating this blanket was planning it with Sue and Lauren. With every shirt, there’s a story of why it holds special memories. As we went through the pile, it became so clear what was really important. Obviously it was amazing that the Phillies won the World Series, but the best part was that this family of Phillies fans got to experience the ride together. They go to spring training together, cheer at the games together, mourn the defeats and celebrate the victories together.
Philadelphia doesn’t realize what they have in this family. Lauren is a devoted supporter of the Hamels Foundation, which raises funds to support education in the U.S. and abroad. Sue and her husband Carl, own Carl’s Cards and Collectibles in Havertown offering all kids of memorabilia, hosting signing events, and supporting the local community.
