    Alternate SPORTS! History Thread

    Uh, you're missing the real travesty here. If Marino goes to the Steelers, we never get the lines "Dan Marino should die of gonorrhea and rot in hell" and/or "laces out, Dan!"

    Sierra Mist? Mist Twst?

    The sheer number of logos this soda has gone through is absolutely mind-boggling. I guess they're just throwing spaghetti at the wall and hoping something sticks. Pepsi has to trot out a lemon-lime soda option for Pepsi-licensed restaurants and so people can buy a lemon-lime soda when Pepsi family 12-packs go on sale $4/10 or whatever - but that's the only reason it exists, right? Is anybody really actively seeking out Sierra Mist over Sprite and/or 7-Up?

    Great pickup for $10! Are the sleeve stripes woven in?

    Czech It Out! Whole New Look for Czech National Team

    I don't think that's it - Sweden's uniforms don't say "Kingdom of Sweden," Russia's don't say "Russian Federation," etc. I would think that the official short name would be allowed. Certainly curious that Czechia went with the full "Czech Republic."
  5. She tolerates my sports fandom, but wouldn't watch or attend anything on her own. As far as it goes, she's an absolute champion. She's responsible for taking me to my first MLB game (Cubs @ Phillies in 2009, when she was interning in Philadelphia for the summer and I came to visit), my first Braves game (during Chipper's farewell tour in 2012), and - best of all - the only time I've ever been to San Francisco to watch a 49ers game, in the final season at Candlestick. The last two were birthday presents. We go to Winthrop basketball games (home & away) and minor league baseball games fairly regularly, as well as an away 49ers game usually every year. She enjoys the experience and/or the travel far more than the actual game.
  6. High Point was once the furniture capital of the United States (over half of American furniture was produced in High Point from post-WWII until the 90s) and still hosts the largest furniture trade show in the world. A furniture-related name is an absolute no-brainer. Dragon Claws is cheesy despite the furniture-related "ball-and-claw" foot that I didn't even pick up on until BiB mentioned it. Rockers is okay, but out of those three, I prefer Splinters. Obvious baseball and furniture tie-in, too bad Ted Williams has no High Point ties.

    Fun With Flags!!!!

    "Three area artists will have their work incorporated into the first official Monterey County flag." First place: Second place: It doesn't list the third one, but if it's like the first two... yecch. These violate just about every flag design guideline imaginable. Text? Check! Lots of colors? Check! Images that won't be legible while viewing it on a flagpole from the ground? Check! I can only imagine the abomination that will result from combining the three together. Despite only knowing a little about the Monterey/Salinas area (Big Sur, mountainous coast) it's obvious that your design incorporates those elements and is miles better than the absolute garbage that won.
  8. I can't decide if a minor league team paying homage to a Brannock Device is evidence of MiLB one-game name changes jumping the shark, or the harbinger of a fun new wave of non-food one-offs.

    Lost Sports Logos?

    This! It's from a VHS documentary called "Hornets Hysteria: The Season That Made Charlotte Shout." I own this VHS and posted about it a few years ago, but I don't have a VHS player anymore and couldn't get a screenshot. I knew I wasn't making things up when I posted about a purple-numbered Hornets jersey that was scrapped before it saw the court. Thanks for posting this!

    49ers Throw It Back to the 94ers, Unveil Alternate Uniform

    Helmets appeared to have the old SF logo.

    White versions of the 1994 throwbacks. I like 'em.

    Dropped by Ross and some thrift stores in attempt to find some cheap Dri-Fit style shirts for my summer job, and was pleasantly surprised with a few jerseys! Cote D'Ivoire at Ross, $24.99 (also had Czechia, but I didn't like it as much and left it - looks like soccer jerseys are back at Ross, though!) A Germany jersey like this one, $4 at Goodwill And as I was looking through the shirts, 30 seconds after finding the Germany jersey, I see just the flag on the sleeve of this shirt poking out. Recognizing this as the flag of the Faroe Islands, I got WAY too excited... I'd love to have a soccer jersey of such a random territory. ...instead, it's just a weird t-shirt. With the flags of South Africa, Faroe Islands, US, and UK on the back? As far as I can tell, the first and last flags are made-up. I don't recognize them, and Flag Identifier is coming up empty. Sure got me excited, though!

    That too. Good call.

    -Green is a touch too dark -The shoulder and sleeves parts of the jersey should be mesh, not nylon -The neckline should be ribbed, not nylon -That gap between the V neck and body of the jersey (right under where the NFL shield should be) shouldn't be there. That vertical stitch in the gap is not always indicative of a fake jersey, but it's common to find on fakes -The numbers, sleeve logo (and name, I'm going to assume) should be heat pressed, not stitched -The number font also looks ever-so-slightly off -The font on the "1992 Randall Cunningham" tag is not even close, that patch should also be slightly smaller than the "NFL Throwbacks" patch, not larger -I'm not extremely familiar with the Jerome Brown patch, but compared to a legitimate M&N there should be some differences

    Definitely a counterfeit, but if you're happy at $10, I'm not gonna rain on your parade.
