  1. Not with the black socks though, make them red and it’s passable, IMO.

    Unpopular Opinions

    My favorite Seahawks unis, by far, were the ‘02-‘11 set. I loved the lighter shade of blue that they used and it had the perfect amount of that bright green.
  4. IMO, the Browns and Bucs can be saved with a few tweaks, those Titans unis are a mess from top to bottom. Browns - Cut the pants word mark, lose the orange stitching, white numbers on the brown jersey, fix the stripes so they don't creep onto the chest, and never match the socks and pants and those aren't half bad. Bucs - Fix the numbers, lose the "Bucs" logo on the one sleeve and they become better. (Still not as good as the previous set, but passable.) With the Titans none of it works. They didn't need to add silver at all and instead they add two shades and apply it in the most garish way imaginable. The best color gets regulated to under the arms. The numbers look terrible.

    First MLB Game Memories

    Cubs visiting Three Rivers in 1985. I was three, all I remember is running around the concourse and going to the bathroom a lot. Took my daughter to her first game when she was only 4 months old, Tigers at Rays 2012. My old boss had some seats in the club, behind glass so it wasn't too noisy for a baby.

    Your least favorite team color combination.

    Add my vote to red and green. The Wild have never looked good IMO. Darker shades of blue and black also look bad. Think the 2001-2011 Lightning.

    MLB changes 2018?

    I feel like we are probably two or three years away from the Marlins going to a modernized version of their original unis. But, they will screw it up and minimize the teal.

    Non-Referencing of Nickname in logos

    My wife went to medical school at IU. All of the students understood that 1 Hoosier unit was equal to 250 lbs. "Patient was admitted for chest pain. Weight 2.5 Hoosiers, blood pressure..."

    Failed Franchise Expansion & Relocations

    Indianapolis was pushing hard for a MLB team in the mid 80s. They even had the name and logo ready to go. The Indianapolis Arrows... terrible. An article from December 31, 1985: INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Arrows, a group seeking a major league baseball franchise in its city, will begin refunding fans who placed deposits on season tickets, a spokesman said. Arrows president Arthur Angotti said the refunds will include the promised 5.5 percent interest on each $50 deposit. Angotti had promised complete refunds by Dec. 31, 1987 if Indianapolis did not have an expansion franchise. Major league officials have not decided if and when expansion might occur, making it obvious no new teams will play by 1987, Angotti said. 'I want to stress that we are not in any way letting up our efforts to obtain an expansion team,' he said. 'At this point we feel we can be as effective without holding hundreds of thousands of dollars.' Baseball Commissioner Peter Ueberroth assured Angotti a refund would not hurt the city's chances of landing a franchise. 'We proved our point,' Angotti said. 'There is a lot of grass roots enthusiasm for baseball in Indianapolis. We got over 11,000 season ticket orders without a team.'

    Do they only have the navy socks? I couldn’t find a picture showing anything else.

    MLB Teams Wearing Easter Pastel Colours Today

    Aside from the Tigers and Dodgers, I wish those blue ones were real. Also the Rays yellow one. Very well done!

    2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    We all know that NFL ratings have been down the past two years. Honest question, how much of that is because of Patriots fatigue? For a brief moment I found myself excited for the freaking Jaguars to be in the Super Bowl before I remembered that there was no chance NE would lose. Now, I’ll probably find something better to do that night.
