“The origin of the term Hoosier is not known with certainty. But certain it is that Hoosiers bear their nickname proudly! (Meredith Nicholson)” No truer words have been written about the nineteenth state and its residents! There are other nicknames that may predate it; the Buckeyes of Ohio, the Tarheels of North Carolina are a few examples. This Indiana Heavy Blend Crewneck celebrates the nickname that is more widely accepted: the Hoosiers of Indiana! True, Indiana University uses the term but not as a mascot. Hoosier to them, like the rest of the state, means family!
Look up the word Hoosier in a dictionary and you might not find it. The accepted definition of the term is a native or inhabitant of Indiana. My Desteenation knows it runs much deeper for the residents of the Crossroads of America. This state Heavy Blend Crewneck honors their famous nickname in proud fashion just like all true Hoosiers do every day! Origin stories abound, but the meaning to Indiana does not change! Hoosier – a person born or living in Indiana; industrious, hospitable, down-home folk, who enjoy popcorn, Indian summers, race cars, and I.U. basketball!
