Bryan Clopton and his band Slow Horse are recording a new record in Kentucky right now. They took that opportunity to do a fashion shoot for us in Bryan's vintage football memorabilia.
There's no good reason why I started collecting NFL memorabilia. As a kid I would buy the plastic football helmets from quarter machines and size up the teams based on their logos. After the Giants beat the Patriots in last year's Super Bowl I was reminded how unpredictable and awesome football is. Not to get on any motivational bullshit, but their victory showed that if you really set your mind on something you can totally do it. Anyway, I think nearly all professional football teams have beautiful logos. All other professional sports logos pale in comparison. I have a theory that the aesthetics of professional football are largely responsible for their popularity. My personal favorite is the Buffalo Bills. I love their red white and blue. That buffalo with the action mark is hilarious.
