Rah, Rah, Ree...It's Barbie...

Little Bama, Auburn, LSU and Razorback girls have something to cheer about.  Their Barbie arsenal just got a bit more spirited.  In a partnership with Wal-Mart, Mattel is releasing four Barbie dolls sporting the cheerleading uniforms of four SEC teams.  

The Sports Business Daily published an interesting article last week about the new dolls.  It explains Mattel's past attempt in the mid-90s to get college sports fans to buy University themed Barbies nationally.  It tells us that you won't see much of these dolls unless you are in the states of Alabama, Louisiana or Arkansas as they are being distributed only in their respective areas.

Kudos to the doll designers for the cheer uniform designs...each one is unique and current too. Barbie looks great in any school colors, doesn't she?

Snack on the Stadium

With bowl week upon us, I felt it "important" to re-publish October's Snack Stadiums post.  Snack Stadiums strike me as the uber-appropriate addition to a holiday gameday party.  Whip one up in the next couple weeks or start planning for a Super Bowl Snack Stadium.  Enjoy!

You are going to love this gallery of football stadiums made of  enough food for the entire party.  Holy Taco gives you the instructions to  create this beauty, complete with the dip field.  Click here for the instructions.

Now this is the time I should let you know that there is an entire website  dedicated to these pieces of edible art/architecture/engineering feat.  I am not making this up!   Here's what you'll see over there:

The Old Try

The regular season is over and it's time to start thinking about the season (aka bowl season).  Don't forget to check out past Gameday Style posts for more great gift ideas.
First up, is The Old Try.  I purchased this print a few months ago for my home that's trying hard to raise two gentlemen...

The Old Try has some Gameday Style in a subtle, fun and classy way.  Subtle, because you may not know what some of these designs are referring to, unless you're a devoted fan of one of these Southern schools.
