5 Products to Sell Before the Winter Olympics
The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi begin on Feb. 7, which means you have just enough time to place some last-minute orders on Olympics-inspired goods. (For a more precise hour and minute count, click through to the 2014 Olympics website.) Here are five events and the products that pair perfectly with them.
To watch Shaun White win another gold in the half-pipe event:
The Eco Taslan-Shell Half-Pip Jacket from Boardroom ECO Apparel because snow boarding gear is as much a part of the sport as the board.
To watch every triple axel in awe:
The Ice Skate Zipper Pull from Quikey Manufacturing Co. Inc. because pulling zippers is safer than doing triple axels.
To celebrate the first ever women's skip jump competition:
The Going-for-the-Gold Ski Award from Classy Glass Inc. Previously banned for myriad reasons (some well-founded and some absurd), the Olympic committee agreed to add the sport this year and it is sure to be a nail-biter. (Though I am hopeful that Jessica Jerome, Sarah Hendrickson and Lindsey Van from the U.S. team will pull through.)
To relive Miracle on the ice hockey rink (hopefully):
The Hockey Helmet Foam Hat from Spirit Industries. "Tonight, we are the greatest hockey team in the world."
To keep you calm while watching the luge competition:
The 7" Husky with Bandana and Imprint from Artistic Toy Manufacturing, because flying down an icy mountain on less than 2 ft. of fiberglass is just plain terrifying.
