As many of you may know, when two teams play for a championship, both teams have merchandise celebrating their victory made up before the game is even played. When one team wins, in this case the University of Alabama, they don their championship hats, shirts, etc… right after the clock hits 00:00, while the losing team, in this case Notre Dame, ends up sending their stock of merchandise to children in Africa in need of clothing. In this case, the Alabama Crimson Tide demolished the Fighting Irish, making this phantom championship gear all the more hilarious for fans of Bama’ and all the more depressing for the fans of the Irish. While these situations pop up every time a team loses a major sports championship. At least the kids in Africa benefit because the Irish aren’t excited about seeing this merchandise.
