UCKup Sports Apparel Fills Huge Void in Sports Apparel Industry with U Can't Keep Up" Sports Tease
UCKup is Acronym for "U Can't Keep Up" enabling Sports Fans to Root FOR their Team and AGAINST their Opponents at the SAME time...for the FIRST time.
By: UCKup Sports Apparel (USA)
UCKup.com Founder and President, John Frank said: "Being a lifelong Chicago Sports Fan, I understand how loyal and passionate fan's can be about their teams. I knew something was missing so we identified the void by first identifying how fans feel."
"There are two common denominators every sports fan shares" Frank explained.
1. They Root FOR their teams
2. They Root AGAINST their rivals
"Unfortunately, Sports Apparel Companies share ONE common denominator. For decades, they have only created Sports Tees that enable Sports Fans to Root FOR their Team."
Frank asked himself, "Where are the Sports Tease? You know, the one's that empower Sports Fans to Root AGAINST their Opponents?"
"That when I realized, Holy Cow...they don't exist...there's nothing in the marketplace that gives fans the opportunity to Root AGAINST the enemy team.
"I realized that unless that second common denominator was addressed, the Sports Apparel Industry was missing a wide open net, throwing up an air ball, swinging and missing or simply dropping the ball" Frank joked.
"So while all the other Sports Apparel companies compete for the same slice of pie (providing Tees that show support) we make it a piece of cake for fans to root for their team and AGAINST opponents at the same time. UCKup Sports Apparel is the equivalent of giving fans their cake and letting them eat it too."
"We wanted to create something different" something that had more class than printing sports apparel stating the Packers Suck" and that's when it occurred to me that every NFL Team name ends with an S, stated Frank. "So we designed our UCK Logo with the intention that it be added to the end of the opposing team name and it worked. Our market research has shown there's a huge demand for our product."
"After all, The purpose of playing a game is to outscore the opponent. By implying U Can't Keep Up" fans also imply their team will outscore their rival." It also implies another message which is more classy because of it's tongue-in-cheek, yet not so subtle message that it's missed" Frank explained.
UCKUP, which is an acronym for "U Can't Keep Up" was created for Sports Fans by Sports Fans. Simply put, when their trademarked design is added to most any Sports Team's name, including all 32 NFL Teams, a clever new message is promptly delivered to Opponents/Divisional Rivals.
"As a lifelong Chicago Bears Fan, I understand the passion fans on both sides have for their respective teams, especially having grown up watching the NFL's oldest rivalry. For the first time, Chicago fans can inform the Green Bay Packers "U Can't Keep Up" with our PackersUCK Sports Tease." "It pains me a bit to enable Packers Fans to wear tees telling Chicago "U Can't Keep Up" with our BearsUCK Sports Tease, Frank continued, but it's all in fun and it wouldn't be fair to our company's bottom line if we didn't make them available. The beauty of the marketplace is that our designs work for every NFL Rivalry."
Works for Every Rivalry
Steelers vs. Ravens is another big rivalry in the NFL. Pittsburgh Steeler fans can now let the Ravens know "U Can't Keep Up with our RavensUCK Tees while Ravens fans will want to wear our SteelerUCK design. In the NFC East Division, New York Giants fans can proudly display the message that the CowboysUCK, the RedskinsUCK or the EaglesUCK and vice-versa.
"We can UCKup any team and make Divisional Rivalries more Divisional, more fun, and our two-sided full color printed Sports Tease are, ironically, more One-Sided by allowing fans to show support for their team while also showing disdain for the rival teams."
UCKup any Team You Want in ANY Leage
MLB Baseball has many storied rivalries, whether its the Chicago Cubs vs. St. Louis Cardinals or the NY Yankees vs. the Boston Red Sox. New rivalries are developed on an ongoing basis. Last year the Baltimore Orioles won the A.L. East. So while Boston Fans will probably be interested in the YankeesUCK design, the OriolesUCK design will have demand as well.

Having identified and filled a huge void in the Sports Apparel Industry, UCKup.com is working diligently on procuring licensing from the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL.
I saw that Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks is on the record saying: "I hope the Lakers Suck Forever" "I Hate the Spurs" and "I hope the Clippers Suck. In fact, Mr. Cuban is also on the record stating: "Like I say about every other NBA Team, I hope they Suck!" Well we can make that happen, at least in the form of our unique and innovative Sports Tease Tees", Frank concluded.
UCKup.com welcomes inquiries from any company that can help them obtain the necessary sports licensing and is willing to provide an equity-stake in the company to make that happen.
