OYE Warmly Welcomes the Dallas Mavericks
This past Thursday the NBA franchise, the Dallas Mavericks, and the Texas National Guard, had a "Green Out" night when they played their rival, the San Antonio Spurs. 20,000 of the green T-shirts, pictured above, were handed out and asked to be worn by those in attendance. The front of the shirt displayed the Mavericks' logo while the back of the shirt read as follows:
Texas National Guard
Defending Freedom since 1636
OYE COMMENT: While the shirt did not openly say Be A Man! Enlist! it did at least force those in attendance of the 15 November game to view the shirt seated in front of them with how to get in touch with The Guard, if interested. We are hopeful that at least some of the fans took it upon themselves to investigate if serving Our Country would trump having other priorities.
The Dallas Mavericks won the game over the Spurs, 105-92. We wish them well in the upcoming season and wish the Texas National Guard the best of luck in meeting their recruiting goals.
