People ask me what I do in winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.
Back in 2009 most of the Durham Bulls promotional gear was Tampa Bay Rays-themed. We happened to have two Diamond Club memberships that year and we ended up with a lot of Rays t-shirts.
In 2010 the emphasis went back to the Bulls. As a result, we ended up with more t-shirts than we would ever wear.
It's winter. Time to indulge my other obsession.
First, take a bunch of those Rays t-shirts.
Then start weaving the strips of t-shirts into the red and white yarn.
A few days later, cut it off and here you are with a Tampa Bay Rays/Durham Bulls placemat. Suitable for fine dining, or maybe just a hot dog.
Winter isn't over, so we'll have to find a few more projects to get us to spring.
In the meantime:
