American football is an offshoot of English rugby and soccer. It became popular at American colleges in the late 1800"s
The first college football game on record featured Rutgers vs. Princeton on November 6, 1869.
About 60% of the air time on televised NFL games (not counting commercials!) shows players between snaps - standing around, in a huddle, or walking around. Only about 40% of the broadcast is actual playing time.
Since 1941, the official football supplier for the NFL has been Wilson Sporting Goods Company in Ada, Ohio. Wilson manufacturers more that 2 million footballs per year!
No costume ideas yet? No big deal, check out some tips and ideas for creating a great Halloween costume using Post-it® Products.
The best Halloween costume ideas always seem to pop into your head after Halloween is already over. This year, instead of having an “Oh, I should’ve done that” moment, start planning your Halloween costume early. We have some ideas for easy costumes created from your office supply closet.
And, if you’re reading this at 11 a.m. on October 31, don’t stress. All of these costumes can be made in just enough time for the office party
1. Materials You’ll Need
1 cardboard box
1–2 pads of Post-it® Super Sticky Notes, Rio de Janeiro Color Collection
Scotch® Brand Scissors
2. How to do it
Cut three holes in the cardboard box–two holes on the side for your arms and one on the top for your head. Next,
select three to five colors you’d like for the piñata. Then take your scissors and make three to four vertical cuts to fray
the Post-it® Notes. Place the notes from bottom to top on the box in horizontal rows. Plan to use one color for each row.
Make sure you overlap the notes to create an authentic piñata look!
Pro Tip: Cut several Post-it® Notes at a time to save some scissor snipping energy.
3. Put on your colorful costume. It’s time to party, people!
1. Materials You’ll Need:
Post-it® Easel Pad
A 2 ft. long piece of string
2. How to do It
Place the string between the holes on either side of the Post-it® Easel Pad and tie the two ends of the string together. Then, use a marker to label the paper brainstorm. Place your “ideas” from the brainstorm on Post-it® Notes and stick them to the Easel Pad. Then, connect the ideas by drawing arrows with your marker.
3. Put your costume on and go have some fun because you look great!
1. Materials You’ll Need:
2 poster boards
1–2 pads of Post-it® Super Sticky Notes, Bali Color Collection
2 small pieces string
Scotch® Brand Scissors
2. How to do It
Use your scissors to cut out wings from the poster boards. Punch two holes at the base of each wing and use the string to tie them together. Once you have made your wings, use the Post-it® Notes to create the feathers. Start at the tip of the wing and overlap the Post-it® Notes all the way to the top, to create the feather effect.
You can also use Post-it® Super Sticky Notes, Rio de Janerio Color Collection.
3. You’re ready to go, have a great Halloween celebration!
We hope these ideas will make your Halloween great. They are simple, creative costumes that will have everyone talking at the office party (in a good way).

It's here...Autumn...nature's last party of the year. Enjoy the cool mornings and warm afternoons. As the leaves start to change colors and before they drop, we urge you to get outside and enjoy. Did you know that this Saturday is National Public Lands Day? You can get free admission into any national park, so get out there and marvel at the beauty that Autumn brings.
This coming Monday marks the first day of fall. Can you feel it? I've been sensing it for a few weeks now, especially in the evening and early morning. At Twist OP, we can help you get ready for the new season. It's never too early to be thinking about the fall holidays which will be here before you know it. We've got you covered for hot coffee and teas, red cups for an October fest party and everything in between.
Summer will fade soon - kids are back to school, leaves are changing colors. But for this Labor Day weekend, we are living in the moment and making lemonade out of the last unofficial weekend of summer.
Enjoy the long weekend and thank you to all American workers for making our country strong and prosperous.
