Been there. Done that. Bought the (National Champs) T-shirt.

It's been two months since we won the Tournament.  Now, that gives a girl plenty of time to shop.  There's been a ton of National Champs merchandise out there, and I've wanted to pick up enough "stuff" to commemorate the event without becoming crazy merchandise hoarding lady.

I've tried to be good.  Really, I have.  I've tried to pick only the pieces that I love.  I've tried not to buy the $7 gas station shirts, despite the fact that (a) they're only $7; and (b) you never know when it'll all be gone. At least, that's how the lady at the random BP station in Knott County tried to sell me one.

It started innocently enough.  I'd been waiting for this email for, oh, three years or so:

And, of course, I had to order one.  I mean, it's a Tervis Tumbler.  That says "Nati8nal Champions." What was I going to do, not order it?  (Even though I would have far preferred if the design had been an embroidered patch rather than the plastic wrap-around thing.)

Of course, there have been plenty of t-shirts.

First, I got this one, because I take my brackets very seriously.  I fill them out in a meticulous and methodical manner.

But, this one feels so keepsake-y that I'm afraid to wear it very often. It's so white and pristine; it just seems like it should be put away to commemorate the Big Game.

I recently found this one at a really great price, and I just adore it.  It's a great cut and an awesome fabric.  I love that UK is a Nike school; it makes it so much easier to find high-quality team merchandise!

So far, I've been able to stave off the temptation to pick up "just a few more" National Champs items. The coffee mug in Wal-Mart today was adorable, but I have about a million coffee mugs already.   The golf windbreaker at Macy's is proving harder to resist, as I've only looked at it 5 million or so times.  And, I'm pretty sure this is going to be a must-buy:

Have y'all found any good National Champs gear?
