Now that football season is about to begin, teams are finishing up their final preseason games and looking forward to the actual season. This means a lot of hard practices and saying goodbye to some of the players that they’ve had for the preseason. Many teams have more players than are allowed on the roster so that they can choose the best of the players that they hold on to in practice.
As the teams prepare for the season by stepping up their practice schedules and dropping members of the team that don’t prove to be worthy of a spot, my friends are all getting ready for the season in their own way. One of my friends just bought a New Orleans Saints tire cover. Another of my friends has started buying some great gear to wear to the first game.
When my uncle first got his Jeep, he anticipated the need for a spare tire cover to protect the spare tire on the back of the car. He had looked at a wide range of different spare tire covers without much success at choosing one that he felt could properly represent his own personality. He was about to give up and just go with a plain black tire cover to go on the car.
That was when he ran into an American flag spare tire cover on an online site. He loved this immediately, because it would be a good way to show his love for his country. He says that the tire cover reminds him of his relatives and their struggles in immigrating to this wonderful land of opportunity. The chance they were given by coming to this country made my uncle who he is today.
Now that NFL preseason games are well underway, my father has started to get all of his NFL fan gear to put up for the season. Decorating for the football season is almost like decorating for Christmas for him. He has a lot of different gear with his team’s logo plastered on it that goes around the house. This goes with his complete wardrobe of NFL team gear.
In addition to his house and himself, my father also decorates his car for the football season. This week he already put on his NFL spare tire cover. The bumper stickers and decals in his back window already support his team for the entirety of the year. My father is certainly not afraid to show off his team pride in every single way that is possible.
My father has always been a huge Detroit Tigers fan. Watching him last weekend as he saw his team lose their lead on the wild card space in the playoffs was difficult. Despite an abysmal game where they lost to the Mariners 8-1, my father still thinks they have a chance of turning things around. Up until they had faced this team things were starting to look better.
My father sighed after the game was lost but still went out to buy a Detroit Tigers tire cover and decal the next day. He feels that if he just provides the team with enough support they might be able to turn it around and make the team into something better. Of course, it’s probably going to take effort on the team’s part to make the team into a success.
My brother avidly follows just about every single sport that there is to follow. He even follows a couple of sports that aren’t played in America by watching them on the internet. He is a sport junky and absolutely loves to go support his teams whenever possible. He often goes to games fully decked out in the colors of the team that he is supporting at the time.
When he told me that he wanted a tire cover for his birthday, it wasn’t hard to decide to get him a sports team spare tire cover. It was a lot harder to decide exactly which sports team’s logo I was going to get him since he supports so many different teams. I decided to give him a tire cover with his football team’s logo on it because he seems most excited about this team.
My grandpa has always been the kind of man who was very dedicated to his country. When he was young, he served in the military for several years before he settled down with my grandma and had a couple of kids. Even after his children were born, he continued to provide support for military organizations and people in the military in the area.
Recently, my grandpa bought a new Jeep for him to drive from one place to another with. When he had to choose what kind of tire cover to put on the back of it, it was guaranteed to have something to do with this country. He ended up picking a beautiful American eagle spare tire cover that really makes his car look nice. It fits his personality entirely.
My sister never used to root for the Minnesota Twins until she married a man who was a huge Twins fan. Since then she has gone to games with him and watched the games on TV with him, but without the enthusiasm I would expect out of a real fan. I think the Twins never really captured her heart until the game last weekend where they had a nine point inning.
After watching that game, she called me up excited to talk about how amazing the game had been. The next day she went out and purchased her first piece of Twins gear. It was a Minnesota Twins tire cover to cover the spare tire on the back of her Jeep. I think after their amazing performance last weekend, the Twins have finally made her into a proud fan.
My cousin is a big fan of the Boston Red Sox so he was naturally hoping that they would win the World Series again this year. Unfortunately, after a lot of games the Red Sox aren’t looking too great when it comes to the current baseball standings. They certainly aren’t the worst team out there right now, but they aren’t the best ones either that’s for sure.
My cousin remains the ever hopeful fan. He just bought a new Red Sox jersey and a Boston Red Sox black tire cover to show his continued support of the team. My cousin plans to continue rooting on his team throughout the rest of the baseball season. He is hoping they can win some more games and get the team in better shape for winning another World Series.
