The Story Behind the New Cheese & Volleyball Store

OK, so we're gonna start selling stuff (t-shirts, mugs, buttons, bumper stickers).

Yeah yeah, we know, we know. But the honest-to-goodness truth is we're doing it for three primary reasons:
  1. We think some of you might actually enjoy purchasing some of these items (if we're wrong, well, we're wrong)
  2. We feel it's sort of a cool way to show people everywhere just how insanely, unbelievably, extraordinarily proud we are about volleyball in this state
  3. We wouldn't mind making a few bucks
We can assure you that the last point is the least point. Hopefully by now we've proven beyond a reasonable doubt that we're passionate about the state of the sport in this state. And that ain't gonna change anytime soon. Even if we don't sell a single item.

On the other hand, selling some stuff might actually give us a few more dollars to throw into making the blog better.

Here's how the store works: We're using an outfit called CafePress to do all the heavy lifting (credit cards, returns, etc.). They have a sound track record, but they take a hefty cut for their troubles. To visit the store, go to Eventually we're hoping to have a "storefront" right on the site, but we're not quite there yet.

Check it out and let us know whatcha think. Merry Christmas, Wisconsin.

Would be fun to be able to buy the goods at the Badger Region Championships....not sure if you would be up to keeping enough stock to do that?
