Tonight marks the first football game of the season for Georgia State University. My husband, the defensive line coach, guarantees a game opener of the season. I, of course, will be there to witness the gridiron action with the rest of the rowdy bunch.

ok, back to design…

With a new season comes new sports paraphernalia. As a coach’s wife, I’m convinced that I receive more than my fair share. From jerseys to trophies and plaques there is hardly any room to display it all without someone mistaking our home for a sports hall of fame.

Resisting the temptation to store everything in a cardboard box, I’ve had to find creative ways to show my support. I wrote an article for houzz featuring solutions to this decorating dilemma and provided some great ways to support the home team.

No matter the sport, little helmets add big style. Integrate your child’s sporting equipment into his room’s decor and maybe less of it will end up on the floor. You know the saying, “If you can’t beat them, join them.”
