We are feeling grateful...for the many people who have helped to make Kyler's Comfy Cup™ idea a reality. Today, we reflect on the people, events, and timing that aligned to make this dream come true. We couldn't possibly be where we are without all of you...thank you! Coach Todd for requiring the KC Sox to wear cups. All the baseball, hockey, lacrosse and football players who put their package on the line to test out the Comfy Cup™ in the earliest prototyping phases--there are so many of you--too many to list. Tony for helping us with manufacturing and, well, EVERYTHING! Scott and Court for providing a temporary warehouse for the cups. Johnny V the marketing genius and awesome copywriter. Becca for steering us in the right direction for web design and taking awesome photos. Christy for her genius tag line and hooking us up with her patent attorney cousin.

Becky for The Grommet lead and the amazing map in our office reminding us how broad the Comfy Cup has expanded. Everyone at Scheels--what an AMAZING and supportive company...we can't say enough wonderful things about Scheels. Everyone on Facebook who has liked, commented and shared our story. Amazon...where would we be without you, Amazon? USPS--our postman is a saint. Julie Z for hooking us up with someone who knows what a meta tag is.
