    Forgotten classic uniforms

    I'd go a step further and say the real forgotten White Sox classics would be any of the lighter blue late 60s uniforms or pretty much anything Luke Appling wore

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Sharks and Pre are part of Fleck's weird neo-Sucessories motivational schlock.

    Seemed Like A Good Idea On Paper

    Football sleeve stripes on undershirts is a big one. Also: 2in1 stirrup/sock things in the 90s. The "stirrup" line always ended very visibly above the top of the shoe.

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    Raptors should have feathers. Velociraptors had feathers
  5. The White Sox/Tampa resolution, with the State of Illinois building the new park is the stuff of political legend. There was a midnight deadline for the legislative session. The governor and legislature were working out a deal, some arm twisting needed to happen, so the legislature stopped time. The clock in the chamber froze at 11:55 for a while. The governor got his votes, the ballpark plan was passed.

    Universal Maxims of Uniform Design

    Inevitably, when someone tries to come up with "rules" there are exceptions where something that shouldn't work by the "rules" does but this one might be the rare absolutely true one.

    87’ers now the Delaware Blue Coats

    The ball with his hand, is he supposed to be dribbling while riding a horse at full gallop?

    MLB Launches Hashtag Emojis for All 30 Teams

    My highest respect is for the teams who went with just their team name.

    Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    It's all as obtuse as the "next time on" previews at the end of Mad Men episodes.

    NCAA Basketball 2017-18 New Uniforms

    If my very brief, long ago experience as a mid major football student manager taught me anything, it's that equipment staff is always ready for even the most improbable needs.

    I've seen Seven. That's Gwyneth Paltrow's head in there.

    MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    Something I keep thinking about when I click through the thread: Where is the boundary between a rock solid, classic, minor league classic identity- and an MLB-grade identity? Some things- like the Chattanooga Lookouts are so specific and local that no matter how clean a look they have, they're more like the perfect minor league identity, because they're bound by the size of their home. And certainly the <<Insert City>> MLBParentNames are as inescapably minor league as the Lansing Lugnuts. But trying to define the gray area is hard. The Hops land squarely in that area for me. It's not that hard to imagine that kind of name having been around a lot longer than it has. But put the identity on a bigger city team and there's something that doesn't quite feel major league. Like it's too on trend.

    NBA Changes 2017-18

    That's kind of what I pictured re-reading the original article after someone mentioned the Heat going on mad benders with certain sets. The Celtics happen to be treating the calendar Nike gave them as law. Other teams just seem treat it more as a suggestion (especially as the season went on) probably just getting emails from the league office occasionally to remind them to wear each set.

    Political Logos

    Daniel Biss for Illinois Governor has a logo where I don't see what he's going for. Ok, there's a math angle with the shapes and the plus for the mathematician but it just seems like a mediocre logo for a health system. Campaign story behind the logo
