Gentlemen, start your… Wait, that’s the wrong sport.
The pigskin has been greased; the coin has been tossed, and the boys of Fall have taken the field. That’s right, tonight the Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Baltimore to take on the reigning Super Bowl champion Ravens in the first regular season NFL matchup.
Each year, millions of people crowd around tables in local bars, or in front of big screen televisions in American basements everywhere to revel in the competitive drama, pre- and post-game shows, carefully analyzed strategies, exciting plays, colorful uniforms and characters, and the wall to wall coverage on multiple television networks. And who could forget about fantasy football; fans around the world come together to create teams, competition and camaraderie.
Wherever you watch, and however you play, do it in style. Maybe you intend to don Ravens purple, Steelers black and gold, or even Redskins burgundy and gold — there’s no better way to say “I’m a fan!” than with a tacky sweater. They’re made with soft, high-quality, 100-percent acrylic material, designed to keep you warm (Okay, the beer helps, too.) on those blustery winter mornings in the tailgate lot. You’re sure to get tons of compliments, and everyone will want to know: “Where did you get that awesome sweater?”
These sweaters are so versatile, you can wear them anywhere! Wear it to the mall, to the grocery store, to work (but only on casual Friday!), and even to the baseball game — I double dog dare you. Your oh-so-stylish ugly NFL sweater is sure to make a statement around the ballpark: “Baseball is out; football is in!”
Is your boss a Philadelphia Eagles fan? Adorn yourself with his brand of green and gray, and you’re sure to win the office holiday sweater contest. Something as simple as a sweater could — yes it’s true — be just the ticket to score that promotion you deserve.
They’re great for gifting, too! Win over the cheesehead in your life, or stir up a little split household rivalry between Jets fan Uncle Jerry and Giants fan Aunt Gina. Can’t you just hear it now?
“That ugly sweater WILL NOT cross my doorstep!” they’ll shout in unison.
Week one kicks off tonight; soon it’ll be week 17, and all but a few teams will be retiring their colors, counting the days until next September when it will be time to pull their Festified NFL sweaters from the closet once more. Don’t let the season pass you by. Grab your sweater and a cold one, and settle in for a little Thursday Night Football.

It used to be that men simply could not find ugly Christmas sweaters to wear to holiday parties. In order to participate in the fun they would have to settle for the uncomfortable fit of ladies Christmas sweaters. That problem was rectified a few years ago when ugly Christmas sweaters finally began to appear that were actually made for men. [...]
In 2009, after several disappointing Christmases of having to wear ladies sweaters, John Kaplar founded Festified, which was formerly named Skedouche. Before Festified, major retailers only offered women’s festive sweaters. This made it almost impossible for men to participate in the ugly Christmas sweater trend. That is unless they opted to wear ill-fitting women’s sweaters, like John did.In the summer of 2009, John Kaplar [...]

What is officially known as the “ugly Christmas sweater” first became popular in the 1980s when people genuinely wore them in celebration of the holidays. However, the obnoxious and gaudy designs [...]
