…Super Bowl clothing is great for charities?

Super Bowl Hat

Here’s one of those “Huh, I always wondered what they did with those things” type stories. After the Super Bowl, when they’re handing out all of the championship hats and shirts to the newly crowned team, have you ever wondered what they did with the loosing team’s useless victory clothing? No, strangely enough, the answer is not eBay. Actually, it’s somewhat more heartwarming, because it turns out the excess clothing is given to the needy inhabitants of Sierra Leone. Soon, somewhere on the opposite side of the world will be running around with a shirt that reads “Chicago Bears, 2007 Super Bowl Champions”. Now you know.
