    Tearful and tragic? They beat one 100 win team and took another to a game 7. That's quite an accomplishment for a team that most people picked to hover around .500.

    Warriors lost their cool tonight. Curry started yelling at the ref because he didn't get a +1 after a drive to the hoop and got tossed. You want people to hate you, that's one way to do it. Durant said something and got sent off too. Ridiculous. Just take a loss with some class.

    Indiana looks beautiful today. The satin finish with the two stripes and the script logo is absolute perfection.

    Since I have them all done, I'll just start posting the rest! Tennessee (1975 Houston Oilers) @ Pittsburgh (1974) For Pittsburgh I wanted to recreate the look from their first Super Bowl win, so they're the only team with mandatory sleeves. New York Giants (1976) @ Washington (1969)

    Seattle (1988-inspired) @ Arizona (1988) Seattle was the toughest team for me to figure out, but I'm pretty happy with the result.

    Alcs game 7 Marwin Gonzalez is missing the orange trim on the inside of the letter R on Astros. It's driving me crazy. It's one of those "now I can't unsee it" things. Sorry I can't post a pic at the moment, I posted hoping someone can put one in here.

    I'm an Indians fan, and I regretted not getting a World Series hoodie last year. After the Dodgers clinched, I joked I was 5% less disappointed by the Tribe's early flameout because this year's hoodie (which uses that same "WS" design) is so awful. I have no idea why MLB would try to get "WS" over as a thing with its merchandise. You hear ALCS/NLCS regularly, and the division series acronym eventually caught on. No one will ever see "WS" and think "World Series."

    I think I would agree that the new one is more expressive, or maybe emotive is the better word, but I don’t think that equates to being less static. The new one is the epitome of static to me. It’s just a lone head, sitting there, with no indication of motion at all. It might as well be taxidermy. The old one had a natural vanishing point to its shape and supported that with the whiskers kind of doubling as motion lines, along with the tapering head and jaw.

    We came one batter away last night from a Peacock vs. Bird AB, I’m still disappointed.

    Playing up or down to their competition's level is a trademark of the Tomlin Steelers.

    In an alternate timeline where the National Football League never came to fruition, the American Football League (creative, I know) became the premier professional football league in the United States. Founded after World War II, in 1946, the AFL was formed from the remnants of the Midwest Professional Football League and the Eastern Football Association. Spearheaded by the Chicago Lions owner, Rupert T. Anderson, the AFL originally consisted of eight teams spread throughout the Midwest and Eastern seaboard and added two more teams, to bring the league to 10 members in 1948. Initially, the AFL struggled, but in 1950, attendance began to pick up as football fans realized that the AFL was playing quality football and the League took off, going on to expand 9 more times until 2002, when it reached its current state of 32 teams. Unlike the NFL, in our reality, the AFL does not have conferences. Instead, the league consists of 8 divisions: East, West, North, South, Pacific, Great Lakes, Atlantic, and Central. Each division has four member teams, which allows the 16 game schedule to break down like this: 6 division games (2 against each team) 4 games vs another division (yearly rotation) 6 games vs one team in remaining divisions (yearly rotation) The playoffs are an 8 team tournament consisting of division winners, culminating in the American Bowl (once again, very creative). Playoff teams are seeded 1-8 based on overall record, head-to-head, and playoff points (sum of opponents wins), as a tiebreaker. Now that I have gotten through some basic background of the league, let's move on to the meat of the project, the teams themselves. As far as uniform standards go, the rules are very similar to the NFL. One alternate or throwback uniform is allowed to be worn one time during the course of the regular season, but never in the post season. No manufacturer's mark is allowed on the uniform either, but the league does have a single uniform supplier, Apex Athletics, this Alternate Universe's equivalent to Nike or Adidas. The first division that I'll be presenting is the Great Lakes Division, home to three of the oldest teams in the American Football League. The Chicago Lions are one of the Charter members of the AFL and have been one of the most historically successful teams in the league. Having fallen upon hard times in recent years, the one bright spot in recent memory for Lions fans has been Randall Walker, perennial All-Pro running back and future Hall of Famer. The uniforms are a classic design in classic colors and have remained essentially unchanged for over 50 years, aside from an update to the logo in 2007. The Lions don't wear an alternate uniform and wear only one pair of pants. Another Charter member of the AFL, The Detroit Panthers derive their team logo and colors from the automotive industry. The Panthers sport a rather traditional uniform with simple striping and no embellishment. The Milwaukee Chiefs wear black and orange and are represented by a Native American Indian chief on their helmet and a drum logo on the sleeves. the uniform features a consistent, traditional striping pattern across all elements and colors. The alternate uniform is a throwback to the uniforms the team wore in its early years with legendary Head Coach, Chip Hansen. Todd Wolters is the Chiefs' star veteran quarterback who lead the team to American Bowl Championships in 2009 and 2011. The Minnesota Bruins are the youngest of the teams in the Great Lakes Division, being established in 1977. The team recently removed its northwester stripe from the sleeves and added their iconic bear paw logo to the sleeves. Mark Denton is the Bruins star Middle Linebacker, one of the more popular players in the league, known for his mullet haircut and extensive use of eye-black. Well, Tha'ts it for the Great Lakes Division. Thanks for taking a look and I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone has to say. Any and all comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

    Ditto. American League camaraderie, 'mate. There's really no shame in losing to a really good team. Peeved about blowing a 3-2 series lead, of course, but the Astros themselves I have no problem with.

    The idea of a Yankees Dodgers World Series is downright depressing to me. My least favorite team vs the soulless corporate entity with a million titles. There's really no winner for me in that. That's also happened before, what? Eleven times? No thank you. But an Astros Dodgers World Series? That sounds absolutely AWESOME. It's still my least favorite sports team, but at least it's two long suffering fan bases and two young, deserving teams. It's also a new matchup that could start a great cross league rivalry. This matchup is VERY exciting to me. Three more outs, Houston. GO GO ASTROS.

    Matt, we know you're a Laker Stan, but the last few days should've alerted you not to be such a homer.

    The Pats and their fanbase are officially worse than the Cowboys and their fans. I NEVER thought that was possible, but, congrats! You won that title, too!

    My problem with the Spurs' jerseys are twofold ... 1) The wordmark doesn't match the numbers. 2) The numbers on the front are MUCH smaller than the last jerseys and just look bad. The jerseys would look much better with a matching number. Though, I saw no problem with their last jerseys.

    I can. The signing of Weeden over Kap (and not even giving Kap a workout, by the way), especially considering Tennessee runs a system utilizing a mobile quarterback (which was something you'd never describe Weeden as) is just further proof Kap is being blackballed because of his protests and not because of his talent. It's honestly disgusting.

    The Browns and Jags could be changing as soon as they're able. Good job, Nike!
