MAP OF DA U.P. BEFORE THE MIGHTY MAC EXISTED.

Here's a map of da U.P. before the Mighty Mac existed. We think it's from the year nineteen-dickity-two. Because everyone loved trunk lines back then.

ERNIE HARWELL TODAY IN 1954.

April 13, 2014

ERNIE HARWELL TODAY IN 1954.

Today in 1954, Ernie Harwell made his first broadcast at Tiger Stadium (technically, it was called Briggs Stadium at the time). Funny thing is, he wasn't with the Tigers yet - he was with the Baltimore Orioles.

 

Wonder if he knew what lay ahead? Thanks for the memories, Ernie. You are missed.

AND THEN THERE WERE 5.

April 8, 2014

AND THEN THERE WERE 5.

Wow. This year's tournament really lived up to its name. Who guessed that a 7 seed would battle an 8 seed for the national title? As it turns out, no one did in our first annual bracket challenge. After nearly every bracket was busted, 5 battered winners have emerged from the chaos and rubble: Wade Watkins, Shelly Finkle, Matt Wyngarden, Anthony Key, and Ryan Israels.

 

Congrats, guys! You just won a TMS mini-hoop basket, ball, and a vintage TMS tee of your choice!

APRIL IS FOR FOOLING AROUND.

April 2, 2014

APRIL IS FOR FOOLING AROUND.

Yesterday, we announced that TMS was purchased by an Ohio company. As most of you have already guessed, it was an April Fools' Day joke.

Truth is, we love what we do, we love being a Michigan business, and we hope to continue being a part of the Michigan culture with all of you.

We're not going anywhere for the foreseeable future. The free shipping is real and, as a nod to our friends down south,
get free shipping on "I'd Rather Be Up North" tees, too!

A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT.

April 1, 2014

A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT.

It’s with a heavy heart that we’re announcing TMS has been purchased by an Ohio company. We’d like to thank you, our friends, for supporting us these last few years as we’ve grown from a small home office in a Grand Rapids basement to a full fledged warehouse and design studio, shipping all over the world.

Please be kind to our new Ohio ownership; give them a warm welcome and some gentle guidance as they transition to representing our great state!

As a thank you, get free shipping on our
original Mitten tee today and tomorrow

 

Love,
