NORMAN, Okla. – An apparel store is paying tribute to Bob Stoops by dedicating their storefront to the coaching legend.
"Sweet and to the point,” said Helen Wolney, the manager of Apothem Sooner Sportswear.
She's describing the store's “I Love Bob” t-shirts.
The shirts have been paying tribute to Stoops for all 18 years of his career at the University of Oklahoma.
"We had the shirts in store already. We sell them year round. We sell them online,” Wolney said.
However, they’re now the star of the storefront following Stoops’ retirement announcement.
"It's consumerism there. They're going to try and make their fast buck and I guaranteed you, they'll sell out," Ryan Biggers, an OU football fan, said.
With only a few shirts currently left in the store, Wolney said the online orders keep pouring in from people all over the country.
"I think when Bob came, there was a lot of excitement. So now he's leaving, there still is the same excitement.” Wolney said. “Very bittersweet. We wish him the best.”
You can only order Apothem’s “I Love Bob” t-shirt online currently. There are only a few left in store but Wolney expects another shipment soon.
