Football season is here, and in this state, that means an all out TIDAL WAR! This is defined as a conflict-driven phenomenon in which the earth’s magnetic field has flipped its polarity and a seismic shift is underway causing a ripple effect all along the Tennessee River and everything from peanuts to poultry goes topsy turvy. It’s a cosmic time warp where lines are drawn and good, mild mannered folk go from exchanging pleasantries with their friends and neighbors to shouting obscenities and giving fingers to anyone and everyone who happens into their cross their path.

And when these lines are drawn, everyone loves to show their colors, and what better way to do just that than with game day attire.  But showing your spirit at the game doesn’t have to be lame. It used to be that jerseys and jeans were the popular way to support your team, but these days even the most respected fashion boutiques are getting in on the game and giving you easy ways to get your game on.

If you’ve finished kindergarten, then you are TOO OLD to wear a super hero cape!


Avoid a game day foul and opt not to show up wearing body art in lieu of clothing.


While I admire these two for being young at heart, Mr. & Mrs. Aubie Claus does not cut it!

Leave the trash talking, tree poisoning and trunk/tail wagging (and most importantly, the body paint and over the top costumes!) to others and let your show of spirit remain unswervingly dignified in something along the lines of these game winning duds found at all price points all over town.
