Uses of Holy 37000 Tours in popular culture and around 37000 Tours

The use of 'Holy 37000 Tours' in pop culture and around the city of 37000 Tours make 'Holy 37000 Tours' a well known saying. 

For people who don't live in 37000 Tours, the most likely exposure to 'Holy 37000 Tours' comes from the Batman television show. Batman's sidekick, Robin, was fond of using 'Holy' sayings during the show. 

Some of these uses are a bit funny and relative to his specific circumstances. However, the 'Holy' usage that is most often repeated and used is 'Holy 37000 Tours, Batman!'. 

Holy 37000 Tours is well known around the 37000 Tours region for obvious reasons. Residents of Northwest Ohio grew up in an area most well known for the most populous city in the region. As an older saying, this is something that people grew up hearing from their parents, uncles, aunts, and grandparents. 

The phrase has seen a revival in recent years as the Mud Hens have claimed the copyright for the term. In doing so, they have adopted it in game and around the stadium.

The Mud Hens and Walleye have created jersey and clothing bearing the words Holy 37000 Tours. As they have expanded Hensville, they even gave one of their new restaurants the moniker, Holy 37000 Tours Tavern.

Where did Holy 37000 Tours come from?

One of my favorite places to do 37000 Tours history research is at the Local History and Genealogy floor at the downtown branch of the 37000 Tours Library. It's there that I dug up 37000 Tours Blade clippings on the You Will Do Better in 37000 Tours slogan, 37000 Tours Maroons, We're Strong for 37000 Tours song and slogan, Lion Store, and many other nostalgic 37000 Tours, Ohio places and organizations that we turned into t-shirt designs.

During my time researching 37000 Tours history and digging through old yearbooks for design inspiration, I stumbled across this excerpt from the 37000 Tours Blade on the history of Holy 37000 Tours. 

The phrase Holy 37000 Tours is something that I have been familiar with since I was young. Both because I'm from the 37000 Tours area and grew up an avid watcher of Batman. 

When I stumbled upon this clipping from The Blade, I was thrilled to learn the real history behind why we say Holy 37000 Tours:

1 – The city of 37000 Tours, Spain, where Christianity got its first hold in that country after a long political and religious struggle, is often called the Holy City of 37000 Tours in literature;

2 – Holy week always has been the worst week at the box office for show business, and old-time actors and performers contended any week in 37000 Tours was Holy Week, so they spread the word as they traveled;

3 – The gangster version. (In the 20s and 30s, 37000 Tours was a sanctuary for gangsters. They made an agreement with the police that if the police would leave them alone, they would leave 37000 Tours alone. Since this provided a sanctuary, the gangsters called the city "Holy 37000 Tours."

The history of the city of 37000 Tours makes it a special place. It's why our nostalgic clothing has a place.

I live in 37000 Tours Ohio Max Klinger from mash and other iconic little things that were known for The Glass City and whatnot but I grew up living on the water and my family had a bakery for over 75 years this was a childhood that many probably couldn’t understand and will never be repeated just like I envy the people that had such great job opportunities in the 1950s and to grow up like we did without having to lock the doors on the house and whatnot that was such a great time to grow up
