Saturday Shopping Link Up - labor day holiday

Ok, this linky party theme is all about what us Americans like best...reasons for vacations and picnics.  But lest we forget, here is the history of labor day, the short version.  (copied from Wikipedia) The first big Labor Day in the United States was observed on September 5, 1882, by the Central Labor Union of New York. It became a federal holiday in 1894, when, following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike, President Grover Cleveland reconciled with the labor movement. Fearing further conflict, legislation making Labor Day a national holiday was rushed through Congress unanimously and signed into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.  But more importantly, labor day now marks the beginning of.....FOOTBALL SEASON!  So that is this weeks "theme", football.  Whether it be your favorite NFL or collage team, or even European football (what we yanks call soccer) link up here.  A logo, a uniform, or even items needed for football parties, link up here.  Then be part of this team and share this party, cuz the more the merrier.  And since I'm a Bills fan, here is what I found in the wonderful world of Etsy.
If your a Bills fan that loves your dog too, here is a Buffalo Bills Dog Scarf from cindyloudogscarves.  Everyone knows that Bills fans are die hard fans, willing to submit to subzero temps to root their team to victory, and we like our 4 legged friends to join us in our Bills passion, lol.
For the loyal ladies, I found these wonderful Buffalo Bills Hooray earrings at the shop of scbeachbling.  This shop carries jewelry for most every sport and team out there.  While I did not find any Buffalo Sabres items, it's too early for hockey season, so I just made this shop a favorite.
And then I found this....the perfect gift that every Buffalo Bills fan needs, a Buffalo Bills Dammit Doll by the dammitdollstore, cuz lets face it.  Sometimes the Bills just plain suck, hahahaha.  There are all different teams listed in this shop, and what you do is when your team is losing, or just messing up, you grab the doll by the leg, slam it down and yell....dammit. I LOVE IT, hahaha

Ok, now it's time to link up what you have for the upcoming football season.  And if you don't have anything to do with football, link up anyway.  Shops, blogs, whatever, 8~D
