Gloves making some serious noise

Two years has passed since a sports marketing group appeared on my door step with some primitive but functional gloves that made a lot of noise when you clapped your hands together. They were very excited about their invention but disenchanted by the failure by a few glove manufacturers making promises to develop a stadium ready glove.


Typically, I was enlightened by their enthusiasm and excited about the concept.


In time for the baseball playoffs, I managed to tweak "their" concept using hardened baseball bat wood glued to a weight-lifting glove to the gloves they market (and we make) today. (Enlarge image or go to their web site below)


Mission accomplished: a low cost; universal size; comfortable glove that can make more noise than anyone can imagine (or bear to listen to) and intimidate the heck out of opponents on the field or in a stadium.


If you need some noise from your fans, contact the guys at Home Team Handz. Just don’t tell them the Glove Guru sent you. They’re pretty busy.

The End of a Glove Era

Today, reports surfaced that Michael Jackson will be laid to rest in pure MJ fashion – as in he will be wearing one (and only one) of his favorite gloves.

Turns out La Toya Jackson chose a white leather glove made for Michael 10-12 years ago – a glove covered in Swarovski crystals.

We will miss MJ. He sure inspired a lot of interest in gloves. I wonder how many know the basis behind the glove.
