Employee of the Day (10/26/06)

Well, what can I say without embarassing or offending this person.....


This person doesn't ride a bike (but, does like running), doesn't like Croc's (but does like flip flops), doesn't like Starbucks (but does like the Coffee Bean) and doesn't like Jay-Z (but does like pretty much any other Hip Hop).

She is one of the few people here that has a groove on the dance floor (that doesn't look like some sort of epileptic spasm). She works in our Custom Sock Department........

Introducing Michelle!

Ooops! Where did this come from? No, this isn't Michelle but, she is a real knockout.

Job Security

That's what I call the predicament that I am in. I have been shipping a plethora (Wow two big words, all that reading is helping Capt Cardboards vocabulary) of orders since Interbike. The orders keep rolling in and 90% of them are rolling out. Good Times!

Employee of the Day (10/23/06)

Maybe this person is the employee of the day since they are on vacationand they can't see what I am typing about them......

This person likes pretending to be Mia Hamm (female soccer player), wears Pink women's accessories (belts, backpacks, shoes...), has strange grabbing habits while drinking and laughs very loudly everyday. Yes this one is taken as well........

Introducing Derek!

As seen in this photo he somehow dresses himself every morning. Nevermind the two vixens in the photo with him. That's the closest he has gotten to another woman other than his wife in a long time.

Employee of the day (10/19/06)

This person definitely is the hardest working of the lot. Plus she has to put up the pranks around the office, our attitudes and deal with the clients.

Introducing Rhonda!

Rhonda's attributes include (but aren't limited to) out of context stories about her home life, giggly personality, crunch numbers with the best of them, ability to drink wine (and show up at work without a hangover) and a fun frat mom for us Sock fools.

Rhonda runs our accounting department. The 2R's (Ryan and Rhonda) keep the wheels on this bus rolling. Thanks Rhonda!

Three questions; Rhonda where was this picture taken, who are those ruffians and where did you body go...?

Testimonials for today....

Employee of the day

Sorry ladies this one is taken.

His attributes include talking to himself in a Austin Powers like accent, telling himself hourly that he is a handsome devil, sells a Sh@*&load of socks and drives a car that most hot young girls drive.

Introducing our Inside Sales Guy for the Northern half of the US....SeanD!

Ooops, where did that come from....

Well, looks like the puppet got around....

Here he is.....that sexy devil! Captain Cardboard just threw up in his mouth when he typed that.

Really, really poor camera phone photo's....

Here is NickO sporting the ever popular SockGuy Bugaboo's* sock system.

This is Norm he is showing off his pair of our "SPU" VLE (Very Limited Edition) sock.

And Last but certainly not least, This is MasiGuy showing that he not only wears SG socks on his feet he likes wearing them in his back pockets!

* Bugaboo sock system- "The world's first convertible sock", Yes that's straight from the packaging.
Hiking? Wear the sock and warmer on a cold morning. Remove the warmer when the temperature rises in the afternoon. In the evening put them back on or use the warmers on your arms.
Rock Climbing? Remove the sock and snug the warmer next to your climbing shoe with the stirrup.
It's not just a sock, it's a piece of equipment!

Yes, they are available! They come in three delicious flavors; Veal (tan), Seaweed (Green) and Haggis (Ash Gray).

Some great testimonials coming in....

"Hi Michael,
This is Angela Sucich, the person who came up to the Sock Guy office upstairs at Interbike to look at the posters on the wall and admire your Atari setup. It was cool to see people enjoying themselves and just having a laugh together at the "office"—everyone up there seemed to have a good sense of humor. That explains why your socks are so fun.
I just wanted to email and let you know that it’s so nice to gear up for a ride by deciding what my mood is and slipping on a pair of your socks that sum up that mood perfectly. Thanks for making dressing fun.

Best Regards,
Angela Sucich

From the Crooked Cog Network

Lot's of SockGuy socks....

Sock's to impress your friends

Evil is everywhere

Although I would hate to draw your attention away

from the last post....

It has become my knowledge that Robin Williams was on Letterman last night wearing our Chinese Peace socks.

Come on now Robin, why are you advertising a sock we don't make anymore? If you want to help SG why not wear our Doper's Suck or Beaver?

Now back to the Dance moves.....

The latest in dance crazes.....

"The Cady"

The first step is to leg kick and add some hand actions. It could be your normal pointing in the sky, pointing at your friend or pointing at the ground. In this case it's more of a "picking up the toaster" or a lazy robot.


The next step is to act like you sleeping in a sleeping bag but, standing up. Sort of like a "doing the Zombie" but, you have to keep you head down. Pictures don't give this dance justice. While in cocoon form your should twist your shoulders and ONLY YOUR SHOULDERS. No hip movement allowed!

Captain Cardboard danced with several ladies this weekend and I think it had to do with my hip new dance moves.


More from Interbike....

Here is NickO trying to get a raise from his new boss, Scott.

This is kind of weird.

Plus I am not too sure who took this but, it was definitely taken from the second floor of our booth.

We all made friends at Interbike

Some scarier than others......

We're back from Interbike!

That was a great show for us. Lot's of new dealers, bunch of new custom accounts and we introduced our new National Sales Manager, Scott Carley. How weird it must have been for him...His first day working for the company was Interbike, yikes.

The SockGuy penthouse was a hit again this year with our clients. To step it up a notch I brought along my Atari. took a photo of the setup.

Hollywood from stopped by the booth to say hey and to find out what the latest and greatest was. We had some pimp Limited Editions but, he wanted a photo of our Evil Crews. Here is the result;

Meet Charlotte our very own in house Art Department. If your shop, team or club has ordered custom socks from us in the past 7 months, chances are Charlotte has designed them. She has also designed all of our 2007 lineup and the LE socks for Interbike.

Somehow Captain Cardboard was invited to her wedding this coming weekend. There is a reason why the Captain isn't invited to too many weddings.....
