  1. Bizarre/Unusual Numbers on Jerseys

    Doug Flutie also wore 22 with the B.C. Lions of the CFL, though I'm not sure why 22 would be bizarre or unusual...
  2. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    I myself think of Mullen first in a Penguins uni instead of a Flames uni. Great teams, and he fit in great... I agree with you on Gary Roberts though, even though I did get used to him as a Leaf. He just looks weird in a TB jersey...
  3. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Things I've learnt from this thread- Gordie Howe has worn just about every possible hockey jersey going, at one time or another. Gordie also modeled the dark jersey of the (then-) new San Jose Sharks on February 12, 1991. I've been hunting everywhere for a picture of it but have had no luck so far. I remember seeing it on the news when it happened though! Here's a couple of cool links talking about the expansion San Jose Sharks' jersey unveiling: Part 1 and Part 2 I bow before your superior searching skills, sir... I was all over the newspaper archives, looking for that pic too. Where'd you find it?

    Who is this guy? Roberto Luongo, now of the Canucks but when he was drafted by the Islanders. And holy CRAP does he look young there!

    Please identify the club baseball and basketball teams that could take a 7 game series from the MLB and NBA champions, or the club American football team that could win a game against the Super Bowl champions. You can't, can you? /Just think of them as the World Club champions in their respective sports. What a dumb reply. The point is they aren't "World Champions" at all, just of their respective league. What a dumb reply. It's obvious that the NBA, NFL, and MLB are the top tiers of their respective sport, world wide. Yeah, there are some decent baseball teams in Japan and Korea, and some decent basketball teams in the European league, but realistically the champions of those leagues wouldn't stand a chance against the champions of the NBA and MLB in a true seven game championship series. The NFL? There aren't even American football teams in other countries that come close to NFL practice squads. The only league that might offer a challenge is the CFL, and technically that's a different game then what the NFL plays. So really, there's no issue with the NBA, MLB, and NFL champions calling themselves the World Champions. They really are the best in the world at their sport. The only major North American league that MIGHT have serious competition is the NHL, with the KHL being their biggest rivals (and even that's very VERY iffy). As far as I know no NHL championship team has refereed to itself as the "World Champion" in quite some time. They just use Stanley Cup Champions. Though to be perfectly honest even the KHL champs would have a hard time taking down the Stanley Cup champs so I wouldn't object if the Stanley Cup champions started to refer to themselves as the World Champions again. Obvious to you maybe, but that doesn't stop it from being inaccurate. Your own examples regarding the CFL and KHL just support my point. You can try to disqualify them with words like "might" and "iffy" but you're just trying to deflect the fact that calling oneself "World Champions" is just wrong. I could go into it deeper but your own examples do my job for me.

    Actually, I was trying to prove how much of a douche you are, but you seem to have done it for me. Hahaha... score!

    Here's one you never thought you'd see: Gordie Howe (back row, third from left) in a late 30's era Bruins uniform! (The pic was taken between 1940 and 1945 though.) Granted, this was only a Saskatoon-area midget team, but it still looks kind of weird to see him dressed like that. I wish there were some better pics of him in it.

    Wow, that's the ugliest thing I've ever seen. And I like the Canucks' old Flying Skate logo, so that's saying something.
  11. Top 10 NHL Jersey Designs/Logos

    Learn how to spell and I'll try reading it again more in depth. All that there, where stuff. Argh! I did notice the comment on the Habs look though. I must say it drives me nuts when people just say "it's a classic" (so there). That's no reason; explain WHY you think so. Do you like the striping or the colors or what?
  12. Chargers New Uniforms

    k my mistake However the NFL has been selling those online since they debuted. My God man, drop one of your sig elements or shrink them all down. For all our sakes. Or just turn off sigs altogether.
  13. Chargers New Uniforms

    I still say very nice, except... the font. Though it could be worse, and at least it isn't italicized. I think they'd have looked better with a nice traditional bold font. Perhaps a little more powder blue outlining would balance it better too.
  14. NJ Devils new jerseys leaked?

    Lighten up, Francis. Let's try to be more polite when we answer posts like this.
  15. Islanders '80s playoff jerseys

    That's pretty interesting... I never knew that about the Isles' uniforms. Given how superstitious hockey players are, I would have thought that no team would EVER screw with their unis going into the playoffs.
