The Vancouver Wellwoods need a sponsor; it should probably be you

For the uninitiated, the Vancouver Wellwoods are PITB’s official women’s road hockey team (what, your blog doesn’t have one?). We’ve been boosting them since last January, when we discovered that we share a mutual affinity for Kyle Wellwood, as well as a mutual disdain for training.

They blogged for us from last year’s Redwood Cup (where they finished as the runners-up), they’ve entertained us with videos, we played a street hockey game as last year’s Five Hole For Food event in Vancouver, and they’ve even gifted us a couple of those baby blue t-shirts with the inverted McDonald’s logo and the tiny heart.

They are our pals. And now they need new jerseys. From their blog:

We’ve been around for a few years now and it’s time for us to upgrade to some spiffy new uniforms. Mainly because I’m tired of going through the rigmarole of ordering blank baby-blue shirts, then printing, cutting out and ironing on our logos whenever we get a new player. Yep, jerseys are the way to go.

Don’t miss your chance to get your company logo printed on our shoulder patch! For a mere $300 (to cover the cost of jerseys for the team) your full-colour logo (or personal message!) will be seen by thousands of spectators at Play On street hockey tournaments, and charity events such as Five Hole For Food and Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer.

Well gosh darn it, this just has to happen. I’m not sure how many wealthy people read this blog (I’d imagine very few), but if you’re the sort of person who has money (trust, us, we don’t), be a dear and hit us up and sponsor our women’s road hockey team, won’t you?

Everybody wins if you do. The Wellwoods get their new jerseys, you get exposure both on PITB and at the Redwood Cup, and we get the satisfaction of knowing our beloved Wellwoods will be dressed sharply as they aim to avenge their second place finish at this year’s Redwood Cup.

Also, they’ve promised to dedicate their left shoulder patch to us as a thank you. That would be arguably our greatest achievement.

If you’re still not convinced the Wellwoods deserve your money, let them woo you with their charming video, “Destiny”:

If you would like to sponsor the Wellwoods, hit us up at passittobulis@gmail.com.

    You guys are amazing. We’ve already received several offers from your readers and are reviewing them. We’re having a final vote tomorrow. Looks like our left arms will be yours!

    How about a PayPal donation on the blog?
    A bunch of Bulies and Wellwoodophiles hitting it for buck or more would add up pretty quickly.

    I think the ultimate win in this situation would be if you could somehow get Wellwood to sponsor them.

    If we all chip in, they can be the Pass It To Bulis Wellwoods!

    Just throwing this out there, if you guys had an online store i’m sure i’m not the only one that would be willing to buy a Vancouver Wellwoods T-shirt. Probably won’t raise $300 but it would be a start!

      I’ve thought about selling the shirts online… I’d have to find someone to make them though. Until now I’ve been doing iron-on transfers by hand, and it takes FOREVER.
