Ah, The Vet. Former home of the Eagles and Phillies, few stadiums in the history of American sports (if any) could tell the stories that this eye-sore of a structure could have told. From fans throwing snow balls at Cowboys players and coaches in 1989 (beer sales were banned for two games after) to a record 60 fist fights during one game in 1997 (which included a mob who shattered the ankle of a season-ticket holder who committed the unforgivable sin of bringing a friend to the game who wore a Giants jacket), the years at Veterans Stadium solidified Philly fans as the craziest in professional sports - by far. Insane behavior (public urination was a legit problem) fueled by drunkenness led city officials to instill a courtroom and jail at the stadium because nothing else was working. Despite its demise in 2004, The Vet remains to this day America's most infamous sports stadium.
Celebrate the legend of The Vet with our all-new zip-up hooded sweatshirt. Made to be incredibly soft, we crafted these bad boys from a plush poly-cotton blend, including a soft-as-butter "sponge" fleece lining - making it perfect for your commute from bar to couch on those crisp fall Sundays. We finished it off with all the details of a classic hoodie: ribbed cuffs and waistband, kangaroo hand pockets, and white chord drawstring. It's sure to quickly become your go-to essential.
