November 4, 2016 - Go Ahead. Make My Day

One of the things we don't do often enough is say thanks. Thanks to loved-ones, friends, and even complete strangers. And for those of us with kids who play sports, one of the most important "thank-you's" is reserved for those who coach our youngsters. 

And even if you do, as you should, take a moment at the end of the season to shake their and thank them for their efforts, how cool would it be to send them a card to let them know you really appreciate what they do? 

We know. Sounds like a hassle. And what kind of sappy card will you find at the store anyway. And you'll look like a putz sending it, right? Well not if you use Greeting Card Universe.

October 21, 2017 - Catching Cold

You're a high school baseball coach. You have a pitcher who has thrown close to 100 pitches in the fourth inning and it's time to take him out. He tips his cap to the appreciative crowd as he strides into the dugout, his day over. Now it's time for him to ice that shoulder and elbow to facilitate healing and prevent soreness and injury.

Except, wait. There's no ice. The field is so far away from the school no one thinks to bring a cooler full of ice to the diamond. Now, your pitcher must wait another few innings, maybe more if the game goes extras, and he has to stay around after the game to help rake the mound and do other field maintenance. By the time he gets home and ices his arm, (if he even does at all), its hours since he threw his first pitch.

But if you had the Pro Ice Shoulder/Elbow Cold Wrap in the dugout, he'd have the benefit of immediate icing, with no cooler, no water, no hassle.

Pro Ice is a proven, non-toxic pain reliver for acute injuries, It also is a great preventative for people who have overused their arms – like pitchers.

Simply place this reusable cold pack around the shoulder and elbow. The windowpane format will conform to the body and the compression straps will boost the benefits of the cold therapy unit. The single ice insert will maintain a consistent temperature for an hour. Coaches can keep it and other wraps in a convenient, freezer-friendly neoprene cooler and simply store it in their freezer at home or at the school, then grab it along on the way to the field before the game. The wrap stays cold, out of the way, and easy to access and wear.

Every coach, high school and college, baseball, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, field hockey and nearly any others you can think of, needs Pro Ice. You'll use no water, no plastic wrap, you won't have to lug a cooler anywhere and, most importantly, you'll be sure to have ice available if there is an injury or any muscle stress. This is one cold, you'll want to catch.
