SOMETIMES YOU FEEL LIKE A WING NUT, SOMETIMES YOU DON'T
Published April 17, 1997
Red Wing fans David and Marc Kellman, of Oakland County, MI, are the designers of the "Wing Nut," a hat shaped like an actual wing nut, according to Tom Greenwood of the DETROIT NEWS. "Wing Nut" is a takeoff of the "Cheesehead" made famous by Packers fans. The Kellmans have contracted MI-based Industrial Foam to manufacture the hat in time for the playoffs and they have a patent for "Wing Nut," which is now being sold at JCPenney, Sears, Champs and Jumbo Sports. David Kellman: "We've manufactured about 3,500 of the hats, and have sold at least 1,000 of them from anywhere from $19 to $25." The hats say "right wing" on one side and "left wing" on the other, corresponding to the positions in hockey. They are available by calling toll free at 1-888-A-Wingnut (DETROIT NEWS, 4/17).
