    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Eh, also applicable to basically any team called the Golden [Animal]. Cal usually wears blue, Southern Miss usually wears black, Minnesota typically wears maroon. The Yellow Jackets don't wear yellow, and so on and so forth.

    North American Pro Soccer 2018

    Toronto FC has suspended the privileges for all of its supporters' groups after they started a fire in Ottawa's stadium. So that's... interesting. In better news, NPSL's Little Rock Rangers needed $20,000 to be able to travel for their playoff game against Miami FC 2. They made the goal in less than a day! I was thinking about chucking in a buck or two, but they got all the money they needed before I even had the chance.

    Well, I should hope so. EDIT: Son of a...! @Gothamite beat me to it.

    I’m not a fan of the silver numbers for Kansas.

    First MLB Game Memories

    I honestly don't remember a lot. It was a Rangers game against the Orioles at the Ballpark in Arlington (whatever it's called now). Cal Ripken Jr. was still playing which was cool. I also got to pee in a bottle because we were stuck in rush hour traffic for so long that I couldn't hold it. I almost filled up the bottle like that bit in Dumb and Dumber, but without a backup bottle, so that was pretty terrifying.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Despite my initial annoyance with VAR, I gotta say, I loved it overall. I was especially worried about it with how much of a mess it's been in MLS.

    2018 NFL Offseason

    Sports don't really matter, so there are only so many opportunities to occupy some moral high ground.
  8. I don't know, I thought that mesh material Royals cap with a black bill I got in 2005 looked pretty cool.

    2018 MLB Season

    Watching my friends complaining about Matheny during every Cardinals game is a tradition I'm going to really miss.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    This is one of the main issues I have with random black uniforms (other than the randomness that spits in the face of tradition, causing anarchy throughout the nation). In an attempt to preserve some team colors, we get these schools making the numbers a team color. This goes against my general theory of football uniform design, where numbers on color jerseys must be either white, silver, or gold (with some exceptions). The dark colors are generally harder to read and require an outline that helps a bit, but can still lead to really muddy looking designs. We'll see teams with purple numbers on black (Washington), maroon on black (Mississippi State), and so on. Maybe I've just been watching college football and following its uniform designs for too long, but black is just plain boring at this point. I say this as somebody who is a fan of a school who has had black as an official color for over 100 years. I've seen a lot of all-black vs. all-white matchups. and it's just visually uninteresting. Or just show the gold jerseys and keep the others for later? Colleges are constantly having events, surely they could have held the others back or something. So strange.

    I don't think Arkansas has deviated all that much from the red-red-white look at home. They've done all-grey a few times, and went all-red for their pretend rivalry with Missouri (and LSU games I think) under Bielema. For not being a national power and having way too much money, they've been surprisingly subdued in their uniform options. Could always be worse.

    Yeah, but at least some of that made me happy.

    Independent Croatia is younger than I am, and they're likely going to the World Cup final. Mostly just mentioning this to further illustrate just how badly America has failed at soccer.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    I consider Iowa State to be a slight upgrade. They look less like USC which is good, and I'll take the dumb black uniforms over the dumb grey. I thought the previous set for Arkansas was their best set ever. The new set is now their best look ever for me. I thought I preferred the satin finish on the helmet, but seeing those pictures near each other, I've changed my mind on that.

    Congrats to Juventus for making it 11 Serie A titles in a row.

    Tampa building a baseball stadium and Miami MLS getting its crap together both feel like fantasies right now.

    2018 NBA "Off"Season-Because It's Always On

    I mean, I'm a Grizzlies fan, so who am I to judge? The dynastic nature of the NBA makes it so that rooting for most teams is a mistake if your attitude is title or bust. So just have fun with it, and maybe learn to enjoy watching random games when your team is too depressing.

    The big hunk of meat on a sword, probably. With Russia out, I have no more teams to root against, so I guess I’ll just root for everybody to have fun.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    I had a snarky comment in mind for this and everything. Thanks for nothing, Croatia! I'm so glad that we didn't get another PK shootout from Belgium and Japan. The late game heroics are much more fun.

    2018 NBA "Off"Season-Because It's Always On

    There are maybe two reasons anybody will remember Dan Gilbert. One is that he happened to own the Cavaliers at the same time that basketball god LeBron James existed. The main thing people will remember is when he wrote an angry rant in comic sans after the Decision.

    That's still giving them too much credit.

    Unbelievable. I thought for sure LeBron was coming to Memphis. What a disappointment. Now I gotta go burn all of my custom LeBron Grizzlies jerseys I bought in anticipation. Absolutely gutted.

    The XFL may be making a comeback

    I've heard stories of minor league baseball players having girls in multiple cities. If a bad left handed pitcher for the Montgomery Biscuits can pull it off, then why not a backup lineman for the Birming Ham Fighters?

    We all know that the King of Utah gave them his blessing. Why does everybody harp on this?
