I am literally bouncing out of my seat excited right now. My illustrious business partner just sent me the link to the upcoming ESPN 30 for 30 film - “Pony Excess.” To say I am looking forward to seeing this is a drastic understatement. This entire company was founded around the Mustangs! (Well, what to wear to cheer for the Mustangs and still look fashionable and age-appropriate). I try not to play favorites with teams in the store, but people – this is SMU football we’re talking about. Death penalty, no school spirit, elitist and preppy students actually being excited about their team and ESPN giving us some national love. (I can say these things. I’m an SMU Alumn).
In the south, football is life and football season is synonymous with college. We are in this business because people are so passionate about their teams and their schools. I am dying over this publicity for the team, recognition of the Death Penalty and the climb back from obscurity. As the only team to receive such sanctions to date – and probably ever – this is a huge piece of college football history no matter what team colors you choose to wear.
Mustang fan or not, check it out. ESPN 30 for 30 “Pony Excess.” Seriously.
Love your team. Love your clothes.
