Support Team USA with American-made Olympic Wear!
Love Team USA? Sure you do! The Olympics makes sports fans out of everyone, let’s be honest. And next week starts 2 weeks of 24/7 sports courtesy of NBC. If you ever read any internet news sites (or the Locallectual blog!), you’ve probably heard about the controversy surrounding the made in China Team USA uniforms from Ralph Lauren. The uproar from consumers and our reps in Washington have gotten RL to promise to produce 2014′s Winter Olympic unis in the US – GOOD JOB!
While sitting on your couch or attending an Olympic party (or at the gym if you’re really feeling inspired), you can support Team USA in an appropriate fan uniform – made in the USA apparel made just for the occasion! By supporting American manufacturing and keeping money in the US, you’re helping supporting our neighbors and our athletes. How do you think our neighbors pay for all those hours of training for their kids?
