It's that time of year again: March Madness. While this time brings lots of basketball binge watching and the sophisticated science behind creating brackets, we should also take a second to appreciate the fan merchandise that hits sporting good stores. A lot of what is created is references to the schools in the tournament (which I find hilarious because I never understand it and it all just sounds silly to me) but there is also a branch of it that is just for your avid basketball loving fan. Therefore, I decided to take a time to appreciate the clever and sassy shirts that our favorite teams have worn (or will wear) proudly during the big dance.

1. MADE IN MARCH

This shirt holds a special place in my heart because I found it to be the greatest saying ever yet I never could bring myself to buy it. (Also - I'll miss you in the tournament this year Badgers)

2. VILLANOVA MENTALITY

This one cracks me up because WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? WHAT IS YOUR MENTALITY? PLEASE EXPLAIN ANYONE FROM VILLANOVA. PLEASE.

3. [insert school name] VS. ALL


Well... yeah, guys. That's how the tournament works. If you're good enough, it will be you versus everyone, I guess?

4. Chicago Is Dancin'

this one is just cute because of the pun and usage of the tournaments nickname. I just love it I just want to appreciate it for a second.

5. [insert school name] HERE TO CREATE

I believe these are the new merch for the season but like gosh, what is this. What are we creating? Championships? New records? Help.

6. CLOCK IN

Love the little college sayings I guess but is this really the slogan? Do frat boys say this? Who on Earth? I have questions please contact me.

7. FOR THE CITY

Ah yes, the greatest sacrifice one can make for a city: playing college basketball. Really great, really nice, big fan of this one..

8. JUST NEVER STOP [insert some school's logo in the basketball]

Another new piece arriving to the courts this season. I do appreciate this one a lot because this is what I expect from Nike. This is a real good pep-talk on a shirt.

9. DO MORE - SAY LESS

Honestly, this one is not bad but I just thought it said "pay less" on it. I like this one though because I can just picture a team saying this to the team they verse. Just the greatest comeback.

10. FEED THE FLOOR

Alright... Now I am just straight up confused. Who? What? How? Really, I want to know, what are we feeding it? Tennessee, help me understand. Do I have to attend this college to understand it? Let me know, thanks.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn

College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.
