We'd like to tell you about SportsGrid's new store, High Character Guy.
If you've been watching sports for as long as we have, you know that success in sports is about more than the final score. It extends beyond odds and spreads. It is bigger than measurables and averages. It amounts to more than VORP or WAR or DVOA, and the same goes for sports fans. True fandom goes deeper than memorizing franchise records. It's dearer than the PSLs, the season tickets and the League Pass subscription. It is more indelible than Sharpie ink on a baseball card.
In fact, it's actually something kind of mystical. It animates myths. It feeds legends. It takes the moments that occur in every season - the sublime, the ridiculous, even the downright ugly - finds their best parts, taps into them and then saves them forever.
That -- no joke -- is what supports this store.
We've gone out and collected those things that offer you better, more exciting ways to be fans. Instead of just one more signed baseball card or 8x10 glossy, we've stocked our shelves with things that are special, things that tap into the passions, emotions and happenings that make sports fandom so great.
You're more than your motor or your workouts or your Wunderlic score. You're a high character guy, dammit. Now have a look around, and start your holiday shopping with the things that shows that.
