2012 was a turbulent year for Detroit Tigers baseball fans; in the first half of the 2012 season, the Tigers did alright. By the midway point, they were at 39-42, though the team did considerably better during the second half of the season. They in fact did so well that they ended the season with an 88-74 record and won the American League pennant.
However, when it came to the 2012 World Series, the Tigers did not do particularly well at all. They were faced against the Giants and lost four games to none; they were shut out twice, which was as many times as they had been shut out in the entire regular season. Regardless, fans still sported a Detroit Tigers tire cover or jersey to show their support.
The Chicago Bears football team was truly at their best when they were under head coach Mike Ditka in the 1985 season. During that season, the team became the second NFL team of all time to win fifteen regular season games. They also wound up winning Super Bowl XX during this year and their defense was the stuff of legends.
The 1985 Chicago Bears season is still regarded as one of the top seasons of any NFL team of all time, based on their incredible scoring margin, back-to-back playoff shutouts, and nine Pro Bowlers. Anyone who owns a Chicago Bears black tire cover or a jersey, even as the team struggles now, can remember back to a time where the team was at the height of the NFL.
Even though I generally drive a car to get around, I wish that the world was more conducive to allowing my favorite form of transport – a horse! Riding a horse into town would be great; I would enjoy it so much more than I enjoy riding a bicycle or even driving a car, in some situations. Horses are my favorite kind of animal and my favorite kind of transport.
Obviously, since there aren’t exactly a lot of places where you can station your horse without problem, riding your horse everywhere isn’t especially feasible. But a girl can dream! I even have a horse spare tire cover because if I can’t actually ride my horse, I can dress up my car as much as I can to show off how much I love horses.
The Vikings have had one of the highest winning percentages in the NFL since the team was created in 1961, even though they have never won a Super Bowl. Before the NFL absorbed the American Football League in 1970, however, they had won a single NFL Championship, in 1969, the last NFL Championship Game before the Super Bowl officially replaced it.
Regardless of their lack of Super Bowl wins, the Vikings have very loyal fans who always show their support, whether with a jersey or a Minnesota Vikings black tire cover. Even though they haven’t been to a Super Bowl since 1977, the Vikings still do generally well each season, well enough to ensure that they maintain a high winning percentage.
The 2004 baseball season was a phenomenal season for Boston Red Sox fans all over the country. Tensions were extremely high as the season went on and especially so when it was revealed that the Boston Red Sox would be up against their biggest rivals, the New York Yankees, in the 2004 American League Championship Series. Considering theirs is one of the fiercest rivalries in professional sports, this was a big deal.
Of course, the Red Sox won and then they went on to the 2004 World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals. They won this game as well, which wound up being the first World Series win the team had made since 1918, a huge day for Red Sox fans everywhere. There wasn’t a fan out there not sporting a Boston Red Sox black tire cover for their car.
Diehard fans of the New Orleans Saints were heavily rewarded for their loyalty in the 2009 season when they won their first ever Super Bowl championship. Saints fans had some worries not long before that, as 2005’s Hurricane Katrina did much damage to New Orleans and its Superdome, nearly forcing the team to move to San Antonio.
The owner chose to keep the team in New Orleans, however, and in their first ever Super Bowl appearance, every fan who had ever bought a New Orleans Saints tire cover or any other Saints merchandise was overjoyed by the team defeating the Indianapolis Colts 31-17. They are one of only three teams to win their only Super Bowl appearance, alongside the New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In 1960, the Dallas Texans were founded by Lamar Hunt as a member of the American Football League. The team relocated in 1963 to Kansas City, Missouri, where they became known as the Kansas City Chiefs. In 1970, the team joined the NFL along with all of the other AFL teams in a large merger agreement.
The Chiefs, alongside the New York Jets, are two teams that haven’t appeared in the Super Bowl since the AFL-NFL merger. The Chiefs were the losing team in the very first Super Bowl and won Super Bowl IV in 1970, the last Super Bowl before the official merger. Still, there are many Chiefs fans who are quick to pick up a Kansas City Chiefs tire cover or jersey when they can.
It’s finally that time of year again! Spring Training is over and it’s time for Major League Baseball season to begin. My friends and I are so very excited because all of us are huge baseball fans. We love watching our favorite teams play on the big-screen TVs at our local sports bar. We also participate in a fantasy baseball team, which is a lot of fun.
Each of us is a particularly big fan of one specific team, so we’re always excited when each other’s teams play against one another. Each of us has a different MLB spare tire cover and a different jersey that goes along with our favorite teams and everything. I definitely believe we are among the biggest baseball fans that I’ve ever met.
People who go to Florida State University enjoy it not only because of its excellent sports programs, but also because it is known as a very nice place to get one’s education. The ‘Fiske Guide to Getting into the Right College’ labeled Florida State university as a ‘Budget Ivy’ university in 2010, meaning that it was close to an Ivy League school but without the higher-costing tuition.
Alumni from Florida State University are often very proud of their school, for its academic and athletic accomplishments. They tend to wear their school colors and purchase plenty of products featuring the Florida State logo on them. Some say there truly aren’t any fans unlike Florida State Seminoles fans!
