Gentlemen, the draft is 25 days away, so here's a friendly reminder that our league store has everything you'd ever want with your league or team logo printed on it. And now it's updated with the streamlined OIL logo, the 10-year anniversary logo, and the newly-designed Liberty Bowl logo.
If you didn't know, we have an online store through CafePress. You can buy anything you want there with your team logo, including shirts, hoodies, jackets, mugs, beer glasses, mousepads, decals, stadium blankets, clocks, and more. The mark-up on each item in our store is only $1.00, so this isn't a fundraiser for the OIL. It's just a heads up so you can get great team-branded merchandise at discounted prices.
Today CafePress is advertising 20% off all orders when you use the promo code MLKWKND
The deal is valid today, Saturday, and Sunday. I would argue that offering 20% off on fake football team clothing is not exactly what Congress had in mind when they made Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday a federal holiday, but a discount is a discount. Take advantage.
Have a good weekend.
While the OIL was born in Baghdad, the Hangovers/Arrogant Americans rivalry evolved slowly over multiple locations. The franchises were rivals long before the league permanently matched them up for Rivalry Week. And it came naturally. They prepare the entire season for their annual matchup.
The first of many images depicting OIL franchise jerseys on real players came in today. This one depicts Peyton Manning playing for the 2012 OIL Bowl champion Arrogant Americans. The images were created by a user at Fiverr.com. The uniforms are based on the New England Patriots throwback unis.
In May, we announced custom team helmets for the Hangovers and Arrogant Americans franchises. The helmets were produced by HelmetNation, LLC. Below is an interview with the owner of the business, Aaron Deifel. At the conclusion of the post is a slideshow highlighting the Hangovers helmet from multiple angles.

Hangovers manager Adam Duffy and Arrogant Americans manager Justin C. Cliburn recently struck a deal with HelmetNation, LLC to produce official helmets for each team. They arrived today, and the men couldn't be happier. Each helmet features "OIL" above the facemask and their respective team names along the bottom of the rear of the helmet.
Mrs. Commish ordered me a custom football for our anniversary, and it arrived today. Below are two photos of the finished product. The custom footballs are produced by Wilson.
Yesterday was my wedding anniversary, and, apparently, the traditional gift for a three-year anniversary is leather. So, my awesome wife ordered a customized football from Wilson specifically for the Arrogant Americans.
Best. Anniversary. Gift. Ever.
For those interested, the custom footballs are $69.99 at Wilson. Here are the designs of the two panels on my football:
AmmoDogs manager Michael Rogers is the new owner of an insulated travel mug bearing the OIL logo. The mug and much, much more is available in our online store.
