    Nope, you're far from alone. I don't think the Cards should use a second cap any more than the Yankees, Dodgers, Giants or the like. When your cap is that good, you should wear it for every game.

    for someone who got into some hot water for disclosing too much I am absolutely amazed that you haven't stopped posting...you must really love the attention to take the time to credit yourself for a design then respond back to any follow up questions with "I won't answer that". I mean if I designed something like this I'd give myself credit too. And he brought up the alt because someone asked if there were any alts. He's giving insight that we otherwise we wouldn't have. I don't see the need to complain.

    Everybody's doing it! I was bored tonight so I decided I've give the Big 10 a try. I may do other conferences later. No letters, just symbols. Big 10 Big 12 ACC I tried to avoid using their actual logos with most of them, although some are pretty much the same (Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin).

    San Diego Padres Next up is the Padres. I decided to go back to brown and gold. It may be the easy thing to do, but I think it's what they need. I don't think the current set is as bad as most people say, but when you've worn things like this and this, you can afford to be different then everyone else. I realize it is not the 70's anymore and things like that would not work today. I found my inspiration for this concept in what they wore in 1974. It is traditional enough, while still being able to work today. The stripes on the sleeves are a bit thinker to mimic the originals. A gold bill hat for home games and an all brown replaces the "Taco Bell" hat. I felt that it made the set fit more in today's game. Friar now on all uniforms.

    First off, while terrible is too strong, yes, I would say they didn't look as good. Additionally, though, it's worth noting a few things. Plain grey uniforms without any striping were only paired with red caps for 6 years from 1965-71. After that, the entire history of the red road caps were paired with thick red/white/navy stripes on the sleeves, collar, and pants from 1971-91. The base of those uniforms was grey for 12 years from 1971-75 and 1985-91, with powder blues in the middle from 1974-84. The red road cap absolutely pairs well with powder blues (don't take that as an endorsement of the powder blues—it's not), and it even looks better with the chunks of color on the other parts of the jersey with a grey base. A lot of that has to do with the white stripe which goes a great deal towards working with the white STL logo. But the current uniforms are much closer to the original 6 years (and thankfully so), and they don't pair nearly as well with the red cap. It's a very drab look. Of course we're all welcome to our opinions, but my point is, let's not go pretending that the 27 years in which they did wear red caps on the road were all the same—with each other or the current set. They weren't, and they aren't.

    I hope the Jags can figure things out though, because I miss the days when the Titans-Jags rivalry was something special. Now they're both just... stale. I don't know what the hell happened to the Titans.

    Interesting point on the lighting: how does their future stadium situation play into shades of purple (even if, from our understanding, the shade is not going to change)? They only have one more season in the Metrodome, and it's under that brighter roof from 2011. Then, two seasons in natural light at TCF Bank Stadium before the new place opens in 2016...which may have a retractable roof. Even though the stadium design process evidently isn't complete (a major point is that they're currently deciding what kind of retractable "element" to include in the stadium -- like a roof or wall or window), the uniform process obviously is, so whatever purple we're going to have for the next five years will have to work in whatever combo of natural and artificial light in the new stadium.

    Something that always bugged me about the current Viking's unis were those numbers. They are slab-serif, but are rounded too! I thought it always made them look child-like or not as aggresive. Give me a slab serif or san-serif (like the Bears or Steelers) but dont soften the old school slab-serif please. Just wondering if this bothered anyone like it did me.

    I'm guessing the horns will be smaller and "sharper" (which will ironically not match the new norseman) and the uniform a good idea that is ultimately ruined by nike's love for random panels and goofy patterns.

    Nice to see the Ducks bounce back and take Game 1 of the Stars series 4-0 in Dallas. (Of course I didnt actually see any of it because I've been on goddamn planes all day.) 5 of 7 points on the road trip. Just fine.

    Those bird caps shouldn't even be worn for bp. Also, the navy road caps were phenomenal. I always liked the seeming incongruity of a team with red letters and undershirts wearing a blue cap. Goodnight, sweet prince.

    I know THEY'RE regional champions and I know why THEY'RE given a trophy. I just thought when you made the final four all you got was a hat and t-shirt for getting THERE. Really cool gesture of the team to let Ware sleep with THEIR trophy.

    Colorado Rockies First up, the Colorado Rockies. Being the only purple team in the MLB, I think the Rockies should embrace the color and ditch the black. With this concept I wanted to use purple and a sliver color with white being an accent. Unfortunately, that means the team has two purple jerseys with one using white and the other silver. I did not want to start with that, but that's just how it worked out with the records. I did not think a vest really fit in with the rest of the set so that's just how it is. Went with solid over pinstripe because it looked better with the purple. Alternate hat has a gray bill and button to be used with the purple uniforms. Logos changed to reflect new colors.

    Ok, I'm gonna preface all of this by stating that I LOVE Phoenix, and Chase Field... BUT. The D Backs identity makes that ball park even worse. Don't get me wrong, brick, black, and sand is a great color combination, but it just doesn't work for the D Backs. At least when they were wearing teal and purple it seemed as if it was this oasis in the middle of a sprawling and empty desert. Now, everything in their identity package just matches the surroundings. When you set up a pro franchise in a wasteland like Phoenix, Arizona, the last thing you wanna do is blend in with the surroundings. It takes what is basically a drab warehouse looking ball park by necessity that was balanced out by all of the bright colors and turns it into a Costco with a retractable roof. And even worse than all of that is now they have this absolutely terrible mish mash of colors all around the ball park. Everything from the championship banners, to the fans attire, to even some of the original architecture that was done to match the original color scheme that can't just simply be re painted, is now this awful mixture of purple, teal, brick, sand, copper, and black. Sigh. They shoulda just let the Stros keep the brick and black. Both Franchises are worse off aesthetically now than they were in 2004. Look, I know that a lot of people really love when the Astros dress like the Tigers because it reminds them of the days when they were playing on the living room carpet and somehow being even more forgettable competitively than they are right now, but I guarantee you that they'll have a lot of the same aesthetic issues at Minute Maid that plague Chase Field.

    That's another tricky one. Look at the 1986 entry. The artist uses the bat signal from DKR, but mistakenly calls the comic Legends of the Dark Knight...which the artist accurately uses later (1989). The 1986 entry should read Batman: The Dark Knight (which includes DKR). Phew. Thanks! Geez...this is very confusing. I never knew there were so many changes.
