Even More Tent Happenings

Another of the seemingly endless options inside the players' lounge is a t-shirt machine. Along with the rest of their merchandise for sale, U.S. Soccer has provided a silk-screening machine where participants can choose one of four logos custom made for the Showcase, boasting some Texas nostalgia designs. If you've never seen one of these silk-screening machines, it's pretty cool. Our expert aligns the shirt onto the machine, places the chosen logo over it and then wipes a gooey substance over the area. By lifting up the stencil, the logo is transferred onto the material. No machines involved here - these designs are hand made all the way.
