Sporty Streetwear Looks

12 Dec

If you are looking for a great holiday gift with a sports theme, try a local, Motown small business The 2nd String. Engineer Nick Bradley (right) started the business combining his love of sports and design. Although he is still an engineer with a day job, his passion for sports is in his collections.

“I have always loved the graphics produced in the 90s and couldn’t figure out why sportswear moved away from that, especially when in the streetwear space people are super creative and artistic in those designs,” says Bradley. He felt team logo apparel was boring and lazy, so he created The 2nd string in 2019.

There are several collections including, college teams (Spartans and Wolverines), streetwear and the 2nd string designs. As I write this blog, the Detroit Lions are on a winning streak, so I feel compelled to include this design.

As we say in Motown, depending on your team of choice — Go Blue, Go Green or Go Lions!


ER Doc, former U-M linebacker talks about sports concussions

10 Apr



Beaumont Health System‘s Emergency Room Physician Chris Hutchinson spoke at the University of Michigan Alumni Club. More than 50 alumni attended the event at a hospital off-site conference room in Troy, Mich. Hutchinson enlightened the crowd about concussions in sports. As an NCAA All-American as well as the Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year at the University of Michigan, Hutchinson understands the topic professionally and personally.

He informed the crowd about the dangers of concussions, the long-standing effects and recognizing the systems. He cited the wise adage about playing sports after a head injury, “When in doubt, sit them out.” Thankfully, there are new protocols about returning to play.

One interesting tidbit is that the first person to bring awareness to this topic was President Teddy Roosevelt. (Check out the link on “How Teddy Roosevelt Saved Football” by the History Channel.)

Dr. Hutchinson’s speech was well received, interesting and informative. Although I’m not a U-M alumnus, my one reaction is: Go Blue.
