  1. One thing I'm looking forward to with the new Adidas jerseys, and it appears this has already started with the World Cup jerseys, is the use of jersey materials to make lighter numbers. The NBA introduced it like a decade ago where the main layer of the jersey numbers is actually just colored fabric while the outlines of the numbers are a kiss-cut twill or the appropriate color. (In the case of one color numbers, the twill around the edge is just the same color as the fabric.)
  2. Anyone know what font it used on the NFL on CBS scoreboard?
  3. I think it would be clever if they made the gaps in the numbers 0, 4, 6, 8 and 9 orange!
  4. Not sure it wouldn't let me upload more than 2 pictures to a post, but here's two more.
  5. On the topic of green letters and numbers with black outlines, today's QMJHL matchup between the visiting Val-D'or Foreurs and the hometown Cape Breton Screaming Eagles happened to feature such a fashion trend. I present some examples.
  6. I think the sleeve stripe, as well as the City of Champions logo being on one sleeve, is a nod to the iconic helmet of the host Pittsburgh Steelers.
  7. Here in Nova Scotia, the knockoff game is strong. But the worst place by a mile is Glace Bay. I recently started a new job at my old place of work. The place employs at least 800 people over several lines of business. About a month ago, they had a Jersey Day. I wore one of my authentic Ducks jerseys. They eventually got all people who were wearing jerseys to meet in the lounge for an activity. In a group of about 100 people, only about 4 jerseys weren't knockoffs. And other than that day, I have not seen a legitimate, even replica, jersey wore by anybody but myself. And there's usually two or three people per day wearing jerseys there. Including one guy in the training department who is always wearing a knockoff Carey Price Habs jersey every second day. And a guy on my floor who also wears a different jersey every day and every one he's worn so far have been fakes. But three things take the cake for me... 1. The local supermarket, back in January, had various Super Bowl promotions on snacks and sodas. At their take-out counter where you can buy wings and pizzas and stuff, they had like 8 NFL jerseys hanging over the counter, and ALL of them were fakes. 2. Glace Bay has a very tiny mall. It is an actual indoor mall that has like 10 stores max. One of them is a sports memorabilia store that sells autographed pictures and bobbleheads and even old video games too. They also sell dozens of "New Era" hats, and none of them are legitimate. There is a second store that's kind of like a bargain store of designer stuff that also sells only knockoff sports stuff. 3. The fact this group exists that caters to my hometown region and nobody in the group are none the wiser: I'd like to put it on notice, but anytime I've ever said anything about knockoffs before, most people are just like "who the f cares?"
  8. Two former Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in one shot. A rarity!
  9. Take the Bruins jersey... - make the yellow shoulder panels black on the black jersey - make the black shoulder panesl white on the white jersey (and change the yellow should stripes black) - remove the top stripe from the waist and sleeves Voila, it is the Screaming Eagles jerseys.
  10. Here's a more accurate fascimile made by yours truely.
  11. Voila!
  12. Don't forget Moncton and Cape Breton also use the Bruins template too (although the Screaming Eagles removed a stripe from each sleeve and torso).
  13. Cape Breton Screaming Eagles. Gold third jersey. September 23rd. (I actually knew this a few months ago from the team's marketing staff, but they just made the announcement official literally five minutes ago at a meet the team barbecue.)
  14. While I've heard many a hockey fan clamoring for a Seals throwback, I've never heard an actual Sharks fan say they wanted one. And I don't blame them.
  15. Replace all black with blue and you'd have a decent Islanders third jersey. Replace all gold with orange, and get rid of the black nameplate, and it works a lot better!
