Few things unite us like sports. When you’re cheering for players you love representing your stompin’ grounds, you can’t help but get a little crazy and creative with your support. To help, here are some creative ways to support your favorite sports team any time—regardless of whether they’re in season, out of season, or not playing due to current social distancing practices.
I love wearing fun clothes that can show off my personality and interests. Make your love for your favorite football, basketball, baseball, hockey, or other sports team clear by getting the equipment necessary to churn out your own shirts. To do this, consider using heat transfer vinyl equipment and material. While this may intimidate y’all, it’s actually pretty easy to start up. HTV is super durable, has a lot of options, and involves only a couple of steps. By the time you’re done, you’ll have your own custom shirts with your favorite player’s name on the back.
Plan Your Next Outing
While you may be shut inside now due to social distancing, it’s natural to dream about going back to see a live game. Don’t let the coronavirus blues set in—talk to people about getting tickets when they’re available. Maybe gauge people’s interest in having a neighborhood cookout for one of the games. The season will be back sooner than you think—for now, just keep watching old games in sweet anticipation for live-action.
Support Players on Social Media
Another creative way to support your favorite sports team is to show your appreciation on social media. Especially if their season is postponed, share a picture of your family decked out in gear with the team or your favorite players. Perhaps you can even put your custom HTV shirts to good use. If they’re bummed about not playing, you’ll certainly brighten up their day.
Write Articles for a Local News Outlet
If you have the gift of written gab, then volunteer your services to a small news outlet that covers your favorite team. This will give you something to do while social distancing or during the offseason. Also, writing articles attracts more passionate fans like you with every click.
