Lions Sunglasses

So today I was wandering through a Lordco auto parts store and passed one of those turnable sunglasses racks. They actually had BC Lions sunglasses which looked pretty OK. Black wraparounds with burnt orange faded onto the lower part of the front frame and a Lions logo on the temple. $25. Anyone else seen or bought these?

Re: Lions Sunglasses

If they are the same ones I think they are, (they have a very small Lions logo on both sides of the band) then yes I bought a pair a couple of years ago at 7/11, for 19.99. I think their made by Sundog and they came out with versions for other CFL teams as well. Not a bad marketing technique. Plus their not bad sunglasses.

I got a call from a Sundogg rep who says the BC Lions latest version will be available at Mohawk gas stations Sept.10/09. BB

Great. You can grab a pair just in time for the rainy season. :roll: Seriously, does anyone associated with this league actually think through the marketing that they do? Only in Canada.... :canada:

Found the CFL glasses (19.99) today at the Mohawk on the North shore. They had all the teams but the Lions. Figures. BB

Sold out from higher demand over the others, presumably?


Sports can be a peculiar thing. When partaking in fiction, like a book or movie, we adopt a "Willing Suspension of Disbelief" for enjoyment's sake. There's a similar force at work in sports: "Willing Suspension of Rationality". If you doubt this, listen to any conversation between rival team fans. You even see it among fans of the same team. Fans argue over who's the better QB or goalie, and selectively cite stats that support their views while ignoring those that don't.
