Default Pittsburgh Steelers' trademark 'Terrible Towel' is made in ... Wisconsin?

Posted at 11:57 AM on Mon., Jan. 24, 2011 |
Bruce Tomaso/Editor http://bit.ly/hriHYZ

tow2.jpgStaff Writer Melissa Repko is working on a story about Super Bowl merchandise and stumbled upon this odd fact:

The "Terrible Towel ," furiously waved each weekend at Heinz Field by fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers, comes from a company in Wisconsin -- roughly 110 miles southwest of Green Bay.

That makes Super Bowl XLV a dream match-up for Gregg McArthur, president of McArthur Towel & Sports in Baraboo, Wisc.

He's a diehard fan of the Green Bay Packers. And, he's making lots of money selling Terrible Towels to the other side. Orders, he said, are coming in at a "feverish pace."

The company is also cranking out "Title Town USA" towels, in honor of the Packers. McArthur admits that the Steelers' version remains more popular, but, he says, make no mistake about the game.

"Our loyalties lie with our Green and Gold," he said.


I found this and wanted to know, Is their any truth to this?

Yes, they've been being made in Wisconsin since they started going into mass production. I think the company there makes towels and bannors for every NFL team, college team, and anyone else who requests.

Plenty of other teams have various rags that their fans wave around, but there's ony one genuine "Terrible Towel" and that's all there is to it!



Double Yoi!
