Holy History Matman Mats!!
Around August of 1986, in a cave far- far away, Mat Man began his fight against matless floors by renting and cleaning floor mats in the Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois tri-state. Mat Man (a.k.a. P.J. Hayden) quickly realized the extent of his mat powers and expanded his matless floor fighting operation to include the sales of regular logo mats.
In January 1990, Mat Man took up the fight against dark logo mats. Since the beginning of mat time the nature of mats dictated that the logo on a mat had to be darker than the rest of the mat. Mat Man used his extraordinary mat mind powers to conceive the idea of starting with a white mat and dying the logo design on it to give his mat followers a lighter logo on a darker mat. This ingenious technology soon manifested its self in the form of the Anheiser-Busch eagle design and is a “standard.” in the mat industry ’til this day.
