We couldn't be more excited that the 2015 Canada Winter Games are coming to beautiful Prince George, BC. Between February 13 - March 1, 2015, the games will bring over 2300 athletes, 950 coaches/officials, and more than 4000 volunteers to Prince George. Although it's still more than a year away from the opening ceremony, your pals at LC are busy gearing up. Check out the games website for complete event info, tickets, schedules, and, if you're in the PG area, be sure to swing by Canadian Tire to get your hands on some official event gear. Then click here to participate in the very awesome Games Gear Contest. There will be some great prizes but, in our minds, everyone who adds a snazzy CWG souvenir to their wardrobe is a winner.

The packages are full of once in a lifetime opportunities and kick-ass goodies, including this delightful (and exclusive) T-shirt, designed and produced by your pals at LC.

Last week, in an epic 26-22 win over the Calgary Stampeders, the BC Lions debuted their snazzy new 3rd jerseys. The dark grey and black jerseys were an instant hit with fans and helped propel the Leos to an important divisional victory. To celebrate the jersey launch, the Lions asked us to produce some commemorative T-shirts with the grey, black, and orange theme. So, of course, we did. Visit a BC Lions merchandise location near you to get your hands on a new jersey or visit the official team store to purchase the CFL's hottest/coolest new souvenir. Think of it as your chance to wear your pride when you're not wearing orange (unless, like us, you've been wearing your lucky orange boxer-briefs since the 2013 season began).
