The Spirit of Sports – BlogtourNYC Sponsor

Hello friends,

BlogtourNYC is now officially one week away and I have a few more sponsors to introduce. Up next on the BlogtourNYC Sponsor series is none other than Spirit of Sports.

Before I dive into details about Spirit of Sports, allow me to explain briefly why I’m fond of and excited about this young company.

"Runner" by Michael Bryan

In my own discriminate view, Spirit of Sports is a gem. A real gem, a treasured commodity in the sense that I have the opportunity to admire two of my favorite things at the same time: art and sports. You see, I’m a lover of sports, specifically track & field. As a matter of fact, I was an avid track star in high school; 100 meters, 200 meters and relay races. Competitive and team sports was my sanctuary.

There are no words to describe the feeling of your feet pounding the pavement every few seconds or  pushing yourself to go further even though you’re drop-dead tired or approaching the finish line despite the annoying little voice telling you enough or not caring what the world thinks because you’re in your element. The “Runner” is a personal favorite of mine. This piece not only tells my story but more importantly motivates me on my daily journeys.

And that, my dear friends, is the essence of Spirit of Sports.

As eloquently stated by the founder of Spirit of Sports, John Pagnucco, “…people want to live surrounded by beautiful works of art or objects relating to sports activities that spark wonderful memories in their own lives when participating in or watching the sports they loved brought them a feeling of powerful joy and excitement.


…Sports activities speak to the heart of what people value – hard work, passion, commitment to a goal…and the ecstatic feeling of pride and accomplishment when it all comes together…

"Golfer's Widow" by Walt Spitzmiller

Spirit of Sports‘ eCommerce site offers fine arts, sculptures, gifts and more in 30 different sports categories. Their luxury line of timeless art is exclusive to their target market who are not interested in sports memorabilia or hero art but interested in sports art that means something much more.

"Another Day at the Office" by Ken Auster

But don’t just take my word, I invite you to peruse their website. There you’ll find, in addition to art, a distinct bio about each of the artists who created these magnificent pieces. Spirit of Sports employs some of the finest artists in the world who are well versed in their subjects. Look at the artists’ hands, check out the  brush strokes and the blends of colors and you’ll see why these visuals are indeed timeless.
Popularized in England, Polo is an adventurous outdoor team sport where players barrel down the field at 25 miles per hour in an effort to move the polo ball down-field. Just as exciting as playing, spectators enjoy the adrenaline of  watching the players while sipping on cocktails or lemonade under a tent. If not more exciting than watching the game, divot stomping is a must – wear proper shoes. In fact Polo is reverently played right here in Florida (International Polo Club).

What a great way to showcase your love for Polo through this fabulous piece: “The Last Chukker” by Rick Rush.


The 34th America’s Cup

America’s Cup is almost here. “The 34th America’s Cup brings the competition for the oldest trophy in the international sport back to the United States for the first time in 18 years.” There’s quite a history behind this popular event, which is fascinating to say the least.

Spirit of Sports has you covered here too with multiple art pieces to select from: “Red Sky Morning” by George Corbelli | “Astro” by Michael Bryan | “Reaching Home” by John Mecray |Yachtsman Wine Caddy | Sailboat Wine Caddy | “Courageous” by John Mecray | Chain Necklace with Sterling Sailing Charm and Grey Pearl – Designed by Catherine Canino

With the 34th America’s Cup around the corner, why not implement a piece of Spirit of Sport‘s luxury art to symbolize this great event.
