What’s Your Favorite College Sports Team?

April 15, 2019

Are you a sports fan? There’s good news for those of us who are: Did you know that scientists say team sports are good for your psychological, emotional, and social health? Cheering on your favorite basketball or football team can make you happy and it can improve your life as a whole!

That’s because being a sports fan gives you an automatic social group, enabling you to make connections with others who share at least one of your interests. Whenever we wear our favorite sports apparel or put an alma mater bumper sticker on our car, we’re sharing our connection with fellow fans.

Looking for some more great ways to show support for your favorite college athletics team or your alma mater? Of course, you can wear your favorite hoodie or baseball cap, but there are more creative ways to root for your team. Here are some of our favorite ways to display your allegiance for everyone to see!

Door Mats and Rugs

Want to show your pride in your favorite team? Next time you have friends over to watch the game, you can greet them with a collegiate welcome mat in front of the door. Or, you can decorate your game-watching area with a rug that displays the mascot of your college team. There are some nice options out there, and they’ll help you decorate your front porch or your home while also sharing which team you’re rooting for.

Collegiate Yard Signs

With outdoor signs, you can share your allegiance with everyone who visits your home or drives by. There are so many options for the material and style of the sign: wood, metal, fabric pennants and more. You can find collegiate yard signs at many local home and garden centers as well as college bookstore and gift shops. Even better, find a local craftsperson who will create a collegiate yard sign for you. That way, you’ll be supporting a small local business.
