honoring the warriors

You'd be hard-pressed to find this die-hard Texas Aggie ever saying anything positive about the Texas Tech football team ... until now (and only temporarily for this weekend).

THE coolest thing to watch in the world of college football today is the three teams that will be sporting custom-made camouflage uniforms and cleats created by Under Armour, honoring the true heroes of our country.
The University of Utah Utes, Texas Tech University Red Raiders, and University of Maryland Terrapins will be outfitted in head-to-toe custom digi-camouflage Under Armour uniforms and cleats for their game day match-ups versus the Texas Christian University and the University of Missouri respectively on November 6, 2010. The University of Maryland Terrapins will feature their uniforms on November 20, 2010 against Florida State.

The uniforms were designed in an effort to recognize the sacrifices made by those who have served and those that continue to serve in our nation’s Armed Forces. Each team will replace their last names on their jerseys with a core value embellishment – Duty, Honor, Courage, Commitment, Integrity, Country, or Service. Texas Tech is the official Under Armour Freedom game, and each Red Raider will have “Freedom” on the back of their jersey as a tribute the brave men and women that the initiative supports.
I can't think of a better cause.

The mission of Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit organization near and dear to my heart, is to honor and empower wounded warriors. Its purpose is to raise awareness and to enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured men and women aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.

Aunt Virginia and Uncle Greg, if you're reading this, you must make a purchase from this page. I'm so jealous ... I'd love to have some of that apparel (with Texas A&M on it, of course).
