    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    I do like that they brought back the padded crest of the original. That's all I've got for positives so far.

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    For when you want a Bruins jersey up top, a Mighty Ducks jersey on the bottom, and a contemptible mess all over. From the logos to the striping to the fonts, nothing here goes together. It's an Exquisite Corpse jersey. I'm sure there's a load of ways to update the old Mighty Ducks' jerseys. But Christ Almighty, this is not one of them.

    First MLB Game Memories

    1985: Cubs vs. Expos at Wrigley. I was technically a White Sox fan at the age of 6, but I rarely saw their games because we didn't have cable (Note to out-of-towners: this is the root of Chicago's Cubs-Sox fandom divide becoming 75/25,) and my parents didn't care about sports at all. Fortunately, I had a whole bunch of much older cousins who did. We sat either in the bleacher or in the seats just on the other side of the left field foul pole, and I was mesmerized by the giant scoreboard. I thought I remembered the score as being 8-7 Expos, and that somebody hit a grand slam. Hey, my brain still works sometimes!
  5. I've seen several people comment when the Padres wear the '90s throwback that they're the best uniforms in the team's history. I can think of no more scathing indictment of the Padres' 50 seasons of nominal existence than that.

    MLB changes 2018?

    Royals should wear that as a full-time alternate with powder blue pants. I like some of the Mariners skipping the undershirts, since in 2027 most summer outdoor games will be too hot for sleeves.

    2018 CFL Uniforms

    When was the last time we had pants numbers? I know the Packers, Colts, abd Cowboys all tried it in the 1980s, but I can't remember seeing any since.

    I love the Kachina and have often bagged on the "performance enhancements" of new jerseys on here, but that Starter authentic seriously weighed about fifteen pounds and I have no idea how anyone skated in it.

    Surprised they didn't put "ARIZONA" on the shoulder logo as long as they were wiping out "PHOENIX."

    Full throwback for the Yotes, complete with the correct outlines on the shoulder patches. Hell yes.

    Both shoulders already have patches. Right chest it is.

    I feel like the flags aren't drawn as well as the previous version's flag was. It looks more sloppy than ragged. And I feel like posters here have done the double flag better in concepts than this. Maybe the stick blade should point left to balance things a bit more. Nice try, but not quite. The last black jersey was still better.

    Quad City Storm SPHL logo

    Well, here's a team that's either going to last one season, or is going to wise up fast and have a couple "Mallards Nights" this season before making the switch next year. My money is on the former. Going from @GFB's work to this crapped-out Paint monstrosity really lets the market know how far it's tumbled down the ol' hockey ladder.

    If they bring back the old third with the new name/number font, I'm on board.

    The Avs have had that rule in place forever. There were these faux-jersey t-shirts that were popular in 1995, and they featured the team's name vertically arched on the back, like a nameplate. The Avs were the only one to have the location and team name stacked atop each other.

    Because the Brewers haven't been able to dress themselves properly for years, tonight's 10th inning features a pitcher in the navy/gold "Brewers" jersey, and the rest of the team in the navy/yellow "Milwaukee" jersey. I can't believe this is their 19th season of wearing this slop.
  17. No word on any potential legal action from Ron Jeremy's softball team, The Hung Bammers.
  18. No thanks, I'll just have the salad.

    As a die-hard Blackhawks fan fighting in the United Center, It's only fitting that Phil's probably going to get flattened in 17 seconds.

    NHL 2017-18

    I think it was mixed, because it returned the Caps to "their colors," and they were one of the league's many offenders at the time of wearing a completely non-matching former alternate jersey as their home primary. (Some teams have learned since then; other teams are the Minnesota Wild.) And that black jersey was atrocious. Once we got a good look at the Edge redesign, though, I think the Caps were up for their fair share of criticism, and rightfully so. I still don't understand the sleeve design.

    NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    I thought Assistant Captain Hobby Lobbyist and Mike Ribeiro took care of that on their own, but you do you. Glen Sather doing the internal rich-guy chuckle as he says he can think of two or three million reasons not to study players' mental health is some bad screenplay isht. I'd like to be surprised about Mario Lemieux, but didn't he once claim he slept through his teammate violently raping a woman in their room?

    NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    I think I've demonstrated over the past several years that I have a pretty high tolerance for NHL owners and executives being unapologetic buffoons and or a-holes. But man, this is awful. There are some genuinely bad people here.

    Are those powder blue pants?

    Yeah, Edwards wanted a free billion dollars from the city for all of his sports toys, and when the mayor had the sense to tell him to go screw, he brought in the NHL to try to influence the mayoral election. Murray was stacking Ls all season long on and off the ice. If Murray Edwards thinks he can do better with one team in Houston than he can with four teams in Calgary, I advise him to go ahead and try his luck.
