This thread has logical connections to a number of other threads......tailgate parties, Labor Day, autumn, football, random weather.....
This Bear, and charming wife (Katie), always look forward to what we call "sweatshirt weather". Happens every late Summer, early Autumn.
I have not worn a sweatshirt since May. Summer arrived and cool nights (or cooler days) never did show their stuff in this corner of NW Ohio. Z-Man mentioned in another thread that his temperature was in the 40F's. NW Ohio has not had anything below mid-50's in months.....and only a couple nights in that range.
There is something calming and warm and comfortable and relaxing about putting on a big ole' sweatshirt. Back when this Bear was a young cubbie, sweatshirts were all plain.....hardly ever noticed one with any kind of logo or printing. They were usually sweatshirt grey.
We have come a long way, baby. I have a huge collection of sweatshirts, mostly college, sports, or tavern related. Katie makes fun of my wardrobe......."You gonna stop at Lake Superior State University and upgrade your wardrobe?" (Actual quote from July vacation, up north.)
My sweatshirts include.....
University of New Hampshire
Frosty's Bar (Put-In-Bay) Jax has seen these.
Roundhouse Bar (Same P-I-Bay)
Lake Superior State University
Northern Michigan University (michaelskis school )
University of Alaska
University of Michigan (Lots of these!)
Hard Rock Cafe (Toronto, Atlanta. I think Baltimore)
University of Toronto
Penn State University
Something very refreshing about sweatshirts and "sweatshirt weather".
Agree? What say you?
