Special Offers for USSA MembersThursday, Dec. 3, 2015
‘Twas the month of many holidays, and here on our blog,
We know this time of year, we're knee-deep in competition.
Instead of stressing, we hope you remember,
Don't worry about the crowds in the malls and bazaars,
For DVDs or educational resources the first place to stop,
With years’ worth of world cup winning runs,
You can be sure not a single soul will be missed,
So let this reminder be our gift to you,
We're sending this message with joy and jubilation,
For great stocking stuffers, go to the education shop and check out USSA Rewards!
