MLB Washington Nationals -

e're nearing the end of October, and it's the time of the year when superstitions abound. I'm not talking about ghost, ghouls, and goblins, and the rest of the trappings associated with All Hallows' Eve. No, I'm discussing those REALLY IMPORTANT superstitions: those associated with sports, but more specifically, those that have come up while me and mine have been watching (or not watching as we'll get to in a moment) the ashington Nationals make their run through the playoffs. The one who is suffering the most is my poor daughter; she hasn't been able to watch any of the...

masculinity, mental toughness, physical toughness, Rugby -

There's been a lot of discussion about masculinity over the last couple of years and I don't want to get too deep into this issue, but testosterone and/or the urge to compete against others physically and mentally needs venue to be released. And that's why there's rugby. Becky, with The Belmont Shore Rugby Club out in California, recently ordered our A004 Rugby Ball display case. They got it to display their "Leather Balls" award given to the toughest player on the team as voted by the players, not the coaches. This year they changed it from a simple standard trophy...

October 2019 BDC Update -

We're expanding into the GREAT WHITE NORTH: Amazon has been trying to get us to sell in their international markets. We have been trying to figure out how we could do that; breakage and taxes, fees, and licenses have been the snag. Well, Mo thinks he's got it figured out and we are selling on Amazon CANADA! This is big as we have had to turn away our friends in The Great White North previously. And it looks like we will be selling our cases soon in Mexico, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. We have been anticipating this by...

autographed shoe case -

A couple of weeks ago, I got a request for some help. One of our customers, Debby, had received her case, but it had cracked during shipping (we do have about a 3-5% breakage rate for most of our cases as they are fragile). She wanted to know if our A014 case-that's the second largest case we have (it was designed for Fireman's helmet and measures 18" x 14" x 12")-came with the wood base because she had a signed basketball shoe she wanted to display. As this case isn't used for anything associated with basketball or other wood floor...

soccer display cases -

(and commentary on the US Women’s Soccer team and ballet) I realized a day or two ago I have been covering the big events of late spring and early summer: NHL playoffs, NBA playoffs, the start of the baseball season, the Kentucky Derby, etc., but I've been neglecting another sport: Football. No, not American football where real big men crash into each other and fight it out at the line of scrimmage, or a running back smashes into the defense to gain an extra yard or two, or a quarterback lets himself get slammed into the ground to get off...

High School finals, NBA finals, NHL finals, Stanley Cup -

Yes, Memorial Day has come and gone, and now it's time for finals. High School students are starting to cram as they have their end of year finals coming up (or they are in the middle of them). Seniors are working to pass their finals and finish their classes to graduate or are celebrating that they are moving on from that part of their life and looking to be an adult. High School graduation is not just the end of their mandated schooling, it's a rite of passage that signifies that they are moving on to adulthood. And it's as...

Memorial Day -

Next Monday, May 27th, is Memorial Day. While many of us see this as the "official" beginning of summer with neighborhood pools opening this weekend and most of us grilling dinner outside, it is easy to overlook the real purpose of this day: Remembering those who died while in service to this country. Eighteen months ago, I went to the burial ceremony of one of my college roommates, Dave Wiersma, at Arlington National Ceremony. Being buried in Arlington is a rarity today as they are running out of gravesites so actually being buried and not interred at Arlington is a...

air jordans, closet space, comic books, converse sneakers -

The way the cost of sneakers [why don't we call them tennis shoes anymore? Anyone for tennis shoes?] has increased in the last several decades is something I never really understood. Then again, I'm a guy who remembers when a new pair of Converse sneakers were $5.00; and the high tops were only about a buck more. And I remember as a kid [and I have to wonder if kids today know this], you could ALWAYS run faster in a new pair of sneakers. But with the arrival of Air Jordan's and the ensuing competition, the price of Converse sneakers...
