LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The Arkansas Razorbacks are coming off a two game winning streak, giving hope to fans across the state. But for some local businesses, those early season losses are still taking a toll.
"With the rain coming in today, it's kind of a little slower than I'd like for it to be," says Regina Green, store manager at Hogman's Gameday Superstore.
Businesses are used to having weather affect their bottom line, but recently it's been fair weather fans that are hurting their business.
"Since they are not doing so great, sales have dropped off a little bit. You have the fans that I call our fair weather fans that you miss one game, you've lost it and they don't have anything else to do with you," says Green.
Green has sold Razorback merchandise for more than ten years and last football season, she couldn't keep Hogs on the shelves.
"It was chaotic and it started off that way earlier this season too. It has kind of slowed down some. They just kind of got their feelings hurt and had to go home and sulk I think," says Green.
While some fans are hard pressed for Hog pride, Green says true Razorbacks will always call the Hogs.
"There's always a winner and a loser. Somebody's got to win, somebody's got to lose," says Green.
Green says she's had a lot of customers already asking for Razorback basketball schedules, which is a sign fans are ready for a lot more to cheer about.
The Arkansas Razorbacks are taking this weekend off but will be back in action October 27th against Ole Miss. That's when they face off in Little Rock at War Memorial Stadium.
