MAGIC HOODIES FOR SALE

So a few weeks back we had 10 hoodies made up for Christmas presents for folks. And these same folks started freaking out as they had long heard whisperings that NationGear existed but considered it a myth like a Pat Quinn coaching strategy session or a Dustin Penner situp. These new hoodie owners said "you have to start selling these."

And that got us thinking, we should start selling these.

LIMITED TIME ONLY

So we loaded up with 100 of these hoodies from the good folks at Speak Volumes in Edmonton who cut us a sweet deal and got ready to presell them on twitter. And then they sold out in three days and then our jaw hit the floor.

Then the logistics questions kicked in. What just happened? Who are we? Canada Post? How do you ship 100 hoodies in a day? Do you walk to the post office in 100 trips? Can they send a nice person in a van to meet us at the corner? Do you stuff em all in a mailbox?

We don't have the best track record with logistics you see. We shudder to think of the time we recently gave away over 700 sticker sets and mailed at least thirty of them empty. We are pretty sure we have also forgotten to ship the odd prize here and there and may owe people all over town for all we know.

Speak Volumes assured us that they would take care of everything and that the hoodies will arrive in 3-4 weeks. All legit and all up on the up and up.

We haven't thought this through to hooking up some sort of online store to the Nation. No you will have to click on a link at the bottom of this article to get your hands on a sweet magic hoodie. "What's that Wanye? A magic hoodie?" you are doubtlessly saying. 

See when we randomly picked last Friday to sell the 100 jerseys we had no idea.

No idea that the hoodies we made would end up solving the lockout.

But as astute people on twitter pointed out, they did exactly that.

Yes, these first edition NationGear hoodies single handedly ended the 104,237 day lockout. And we haven't sold a thread of NationGear since about 30 tee shirts back in 2008 so it is more than mere coincidence.

Who knows when NationGear will come again or if it will at all. But we can guarantee you will never see these babies again after we sell these next 100.

Guaranteed.

SO SEXY YOU ARE

In honour of the lockout ending we will call the gang over at Speak Volumes and order another 100 tomorrow morning. $59 bucks plus shipping and taxes and a portion of the proceeds will go to a local charity that the venerable Jason Gregor will select on all of our behalf.

If you want NationGear hoodies and to be the sexiest person you know click here.

I got mine ordered- excellent idea and design. Love the support of Gregor's charities as well.

As long as no proceeds go to the NHL so my mini-boycott that means jack to anyone is intact.

A magic Hoodie that ends everything that is wrong in the world? Who could resist?

Scooped one of these bad boys up at 4:30 in the morning.. They must be magic to have gotten me up at this hour.

This being my first and last purchase of anything hockey related in the last 6 months kinda made me feel like a sheep...

And then I go back and read that the venerable Mr Jason Gregor will be picking a worthy charity to throw some of the proceeds at and all of a sudden I think I can go back to sleep!

I anticipate spilling beer on this hoodie during every game I don't go to this year.

And also.... CALGARY SUCKS.....you too VANCOUVER

Well you've done it Wanye...you've made me EVEN SEXIER! Although a little redundant as its like putting perfume on a flower. I'm sure this great beginning will lead to a NATIONGEAR store bigger than Walmart!

Why the color change? The logo goes from a cool fist in the original white and blue, to a spiky haired suglasses wearing douche with a bright orange nose in the black version. Looks like the kind of guy that drives a truck with balls hanging on the bumper. :)

WOOT!!!

It's win-win. New oiler gear for me and none of my money goes towards the NHL's revenue.

If there were any way to modify the hoody so that it had a zippered pocket/pouch to put my phone in while i play outdoor shinny, I'd greatly appreciate it!

We need a zippered area for our tractor keys and cell phones while we sport this fine looking piece of clothing out on the town!

You guys need to make some hats. They would be awesome. I just bought the hoodie by the way.

A black hat with that logo would be amazing.
