Wrigley Field is the Chicago baseball field where the Chicago Cubs play their home games. The field has been the home ballpark for the team since 1916, though it was originally built in 1914 for the Chicago Whales, part of the now-defunct Federal League baseball league. Though it hosted a number of World Series before the 1950s, the Cubs have never won a World Series there.
It’s no surprise that whenever you roam around the areas in Chicago near Wrigley Field – which are commonly referred to collectively as Wrigleyville – you’ll see many a Chicago Cubs black logo tire cover around, among other decals and bumper stickers related to the Cubs. Even in the face of adversity, most Chicago Cubs fans are ever-loyal to their team.
Though Auburn University is perhaps best known for their swimming and diving teams in recent years, as well as their equestrian team, they have also had quite a bit of success when it comes to football. The most recent football national championship won by the Auburn Tigers was in 2010, but they had been SEC championships only a few years beforehand.
Most important to the school, ultimately, is swimming and diving. Since 1997, the school has won eight men’s national championships and five women’s national championships for swimming and diving. Regardless of what sport they’re supporting, Tigers fans are sure to pick up a jersey or an NCAA Auburn Tigers tire cover to support their favorite team.
When you graduate college and go out into the real world, it can be a little intimidating when it comes to dating, figuring out how things are different from how they were in college. People are often afraid there won’t be enough people their age out at the bars and clubs that they’ll be frequenting that aren’t close to their college town.
If you go out and take a look at college spare tire covers, then realize that every single one of those is a separate college and that there are probably twenty thousand people or more of college age going to each of those schools, you realize how many are graduating each year. That doesn’t even include all the colleges without major sports teams! Never give up; there are so many people out there to meet!
I’m not interested in things that are fancy and flashy. I’ve always been more willing to choose the simpler things and I think that I’m a lot happier that way; it also has saved me a lot of money. Being the person on the street who doesn’t need the flashy car or all the fancy furniture usually makes you the one on the street who’s got extra money to do the things they want to do.
I feel this way about most products; I go as simple as I possibly can. I don’t even get flashy tire covers; I prefer to get the best solid black spare tire cover that I can find. Some people may believe that my style is a bit bland, but I think it’s just fine. My clothing tends to be similar; I’m not interested in being flashy, just being comfortable and happy.
My daughter bought her first car recently and I’m very proud of her for being smart with her money and being able to properly pay for it. My wife and I are planning on helping her out with a few things, but so far she’s been making good decisions about her car. She got a Jeep, which surprised me a little bit, but she has always been interested in off-roading and things like that.
My wife and I decided that we’d reward her hard work and smart monetary decisions by getting her a few of the accessories that she would need for her care. For instance, my wife even found a Silly Boys Jeeps Are For Girls tire cover for our daughter that we knew she would love, for obvious reasons. We also got her oil and things like that.
It can be hard to be a fan of the Detroit Lions; they’ve come across hard times in recent years and being someone born and raised in Detroit, I don’t want to abandon my team. Still, they’ve come across a lot of problems. They have the second longest NFL championship drought in the league and their 2008 team was the only team in NFL history to lose all 16 regular season games.
As a sports fan and a Detroit fan, it was really hard seeing the team you’ve grown to love and support do so poorly. That being said, a true fan sticks to their team no matter what and is still able to praise them for what they do right. That’s why I still have no problem sporting my Detroit Lions black logo tire cover or one of my Detroit Lions jerseys.
Most of my closest friends from high school went to different colleges than I did after we graduated. These were people that I had been friends with for as long as I can remember, however, so we made sure to keep in touch even though some of us were in different states and sometimes in different countries. Though we were far apart during the school year, we always spent time together during summers.
You can always tell which of us is from which college based on the T-shirts and sweatshirts we wear, as well as our NCAA tire covers, which each feature the college teams that we support. It’s always interesting to hear about my friends’ college experiences and how they are similar and different from my own.
I’ve always been a firm believer in peace; I think that peaceful resolution is a better solution in all aspects of life compared to a violent resolution. It really surprises me that there’s still anyone who believes otherwise; it all seems archaic to think that way. Though I’m not an active protester, I still try to make it known the values that I support any way I can.
For instance, I have a number of bumper stickers on my car that talk about peace, and whenever I get the chance, I sign petitions or I vote for politicians that are also in favor of peaceful resolutions of conflicts. I also have a Jeep peace sign tire cover and a few other things because I really like what the peace sign represents as a symbol.
