San Francisco's Loss Is A Mongolia & Zambia Gain

Years ago I remember watching some championship game where it had just ended.  To my surprise when flipping past a home shopping channel, I stopped to notice they were selling the winning team's championship printed on t-shirts, hats, blankets and sweaters.  How did they get those printed so fast?

Since then I've realized that companies print two sets of products proudly proclaiming each team as the champion weeks in advance of the actual game.  Retailers simply wait and see who wins the game and promptly begin selling the winning teams stuff the second the final score is announced..  But what happens to the losing team's "Championship" swag? In the case of the National Football League, they donate these items to World Vision, who distributes these clothing items to 3rd world countries.

Prior to the last 20 years, these items would simply be destroyed but now all these misfit apparel items are sent to poor countries that could care less of their printed inaccuracies and given to our fellow man.

So if you happen to see a photo of a child wearing a San Francisco 2013 world champion sweater in a poor country, you'll know that San Francisco's loss has helped a poor child keep warm half way around the world!
