Game Day Kozie

I don't know about you, but I love football.  Every Sunday around here is "Football Sunday".  I am a huge Bears fan so, the playoffs this year, yeah not so exciting.  Though, I did enjoy watching the last Packers game ;)  My husband is a Patriots fan, so I have kind of adopted them as my second team.
We are planning kind of a big Sunday around here here and I decided to whip something up for my beverage(s).
A game day Kozie.  Of course this Kozie could be made in any team colors and for any sport.  As a matter of fact, I have a few ideas bouncing around in my head.
Not only does this Kozie fit a bottle, it also fits a can.  Great for beer, soda, or anything else that you may enjoy.
