Artisanal Football

In case you've been living in a cave (in which case, why are you online right now?), you'll have noticed that football season has been going on for some time now. In fact, football season appears endless and eternal, as much a part of the holiday season as the tree and latkes, except with lots of yelling and more gas.

Here's the downside of football season: men on the couch. Unmoving. Well, maybe they move a little, like glaciers sliding slowly from the kitchen to the bathroom and back to the couch again. The idea that watching sports isn't the same as playing sports is lost in the heat of the battle and the body-sized sofa indentation. So what holiday gift might stir this sports spectator to life? Try this really cool artisanal football. The thing is handmade; no two are alike. It's designed to be played with and abused (which is good, since the couch can't take much more). And it fits with the football theme of the season perfectly.

This beautiful piece of sports equipment is $115, but can be passed down, eliminating the couch potatoes in your tribe. On the other hand, any injuries obtained while playing will only result in more lounge time, so tell him to be careful. Find it at Kaufman Mercantile Store.

Thanks for writing up the football from our store (and your crusade to getting the boys outside and running around)! Love the stuff on your blog.
