    Are you ready, all, for some Freddy Ball?

    Hmmmmmm.

    I want a Freddyball Shirt real bad!

    Yeh, it's Friday night, and I have nothing more to do but think about going fishing in the morning,....... then, of course, I go to Cyclone Fanatic and all of the basketball talk has me pumped for the season and seasons to come.

    I am thinking I'm going to take one of my Cyclone Polo shirts and have Freddyball stitched on the front and have the words from the basketball poster from last season put on the back; (you know,........... at one of those we-will-print-anything -on-a-shirt kind of places?)

    "The road is long. Every step makes a difference. And when you play hard, bring your best and leave it on the floor, you can find magic. That's why we take this journey.That's why we're on this road together."

    I have two questions. Should it be Freddyball or Freddieball? Also, how much trouble can I get myself into by making my own shirt on a "Iowa State University Shirt" with an ISU logo on it?

    Any thoughts?
    Any other ideas about design or content?

    I'm guessing you can do it, you just can't sell it. BUT, I'm not an expert on that type of stuff so I have no idea.

    I believe the correct terminology is Hoiball.

    You must have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night then.

    Re: Are you ready, all, for some Freddy Ball?

    All I can say is that I can't remember when I have been this pumped about basketball season, and it's not even August yet. Cannot wait to see this team on the court.


    Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

    So anything goes pretty much, as long as I don't sell it?

    What about putting the player's last names on the back instead of "The road is long......etc?

    Thanks.

    Well said.
    Me either!

    I think we should get Cyclone Fanatic to design a Freddyball Basketball Shirt and sell it to the masses. Hello, ....... Chris?

    Don't be too hasty, are you sure this is the Freddy that you want? I think you should start a poll.

    In response to the thread title...nope. I want the time between now and November to last forever (As if that that thing was needed).

    Sorry M, I'm not following you.
    I'm a little slow, I think.

    I'm ready for football and Italy. I am very excited for BBall, but I don't want to fast forward there just yet. And I mean very excited.

    In your OP you were contemplating on how to spell the nickname of Fred, either Freddy or Freddie.

    Personally, I think you should scratch the shirt idea and figure out a way to put Hoiberg's face on a basketball. That would true Freddie (or Freddy) Ball!
