We have been blessed to meet some great professional athletes over the last 20 years. One thing I have noticed with players that leave professional sports, is the fact that most of them do not have long range plans after playing days are over. One player who did plant the seeds way before his season was over, was Eddie George (and yes he wrote the intro on his web page himself). He has a number of great things going on such as The Edge Group, EGX Lifestyle and a few other ventures.
Eddie has coming up the EGX NFL Moms Challenge, which is dedicated to promoting a healthy new lifestyle. The NFL Moms Challenge begins Sept. 6-8 and will mirror the 2007/8 football season, concluding with a EGX Superbowl in Phoenix on Jan. 31, 2008. The EGX Kids Fitness Challenge is Nov. 3rd.
So any of you Titans & Ohio State Buckeye fans that want to meet Eddie George in person here is the information below:
Who: 300 Boys & Girls, Ages 9 –15
Date: Saturday, Nov. 3, 2007
Time: 10am –2pm
Location: Titans Practice Facility –Nashville, TN
Its true, its been a long time since I bought a shirt from somewhere else! I have only purchased 1 shirt before, and it was for my little girl because the design was so cool. See it here! What a cool design from a great artist!
Then a few weeks ago, someone sent me a link to a very cool site called www.woot.com They have a great concept going on! They basically post a new design every night at 12am cst, and sell it for $10! This price also includes SHIPPING! They will print between 400-1000 pieces per day based on the design being bought. I give them credit for doing something very cool and out of the box. This is one of the shirts we got from them:
So for so good!
I will say this… embroidery is 100x easier to do than screen printing, the production part that is! We had about 3-4 hours of training from our rep, and once he left we started our first job of 60 pieces or so, with no problems. Only a few minor issues with the swf machine, which the swf technician was able to correct with us over the phone.
Here are the updated pics of our new embroidery room.
