  1. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I want to point out that the Purdue helmets are a cool move for a special occasion. Ross Ade Stadium had permanent lights installed this offseason so Friday night's game will be the first home night game with permanent lighting for Purdue. The lights are a big deal for the football team so I really like the idea of embracing that with a helmet that will look fantastic under them. Hopefully they don't over wear the new lids.
  2. IDK that this is one of the best match ups of the week but it was really aesthetically pleasing from the stands with a great mix of colors. The Louisville helmet is gorgeous in person, pictures do not do it justice at all.

    No it was there last year as well and is on all three jerseys. It is supposed to look like the pilot or cowcatcher on the front of a train.

    This one makes me laugh!
  5. Nuggets unveil new uniforms*

    As a fan, I'm a fan. However, I don't like these for my Nuggets. They feel way too similar to the Jazz and Pacers and I'm really going to miss the sky blue. I was born in '94 and the Nuggs have been wearing sky blue since '03, the Nuggets are sky blue to me, it's all I know. We were awful when we wore navy/red/gold and my only memories in the pre sky blue era are drab and depressing. It's certainly going to be a change, hopefully they introduce a classic skyline design and a yellow jersey with either the skyline or even the pick axe and pan from the ABA days.
  6. Los Angeles Chargers Brand Discussion

    Don't worry, this makes me feel old as well and I'm 23! Saying that playing at Dallas on Thanksgiving is the biggest game other than the Super Bowl really emphasizes what a bunch of losers this team is. Top to bottom, minus Rivers, this organization is a complete disaster.
  7. What Grinds Your Gears...

    That seems incredibly strange to me. I know and work with beekeepers and researchers and in my experience they will move them for free into their own managed hives. If that's the case that is incredibly disappointing. If your exterminator exaggerated to keep the business to himself (definitely not saying he did, I really don't know) that is even more disappointing. Regardless, it sounds like you did what you could to save them. Thanks!

    Hopefully I'm not too late on this one. Please call a local beekeeper, they will be thrilled to come collect the bees and move them to a more suitable location in a managed hive. P.S. I'm an Entomologist who specializes in pollinators (specifically bees).

    In 3 years Rutgers has won 12 games in the B1G in football and basketball combined. That is impressively bad!
  10. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Rutgers really can't do ANYTHING right. There is not a single school in the entire country that is more out of its league than them. This is just par for the course.
  11. 2017 MLB Season

    dsaline beat me to it, but yeah when your team has been hopeless for almost the entirety of its history and starts hot every year June 19 is late. That Nolan bomb was awesome. Denver has always been a tender box waiting for the Rockies to show any spark and this years team is definitely doing that.
  12. 2017 MLB Season

    Honestly, being 20 games ahead of the Giants is almost more rewarding than being 20 games above .500. You guys have just beaten the hell out of us for years! It feels REALLY good to have the Rox playing great ball this late in the season.
  13. Your Travel Bucket List

    Awesome, I'll have to look for that. Thanks!
  14. Your Travel Bucket List

    I'll be checking off a lifelong bucket list item tomorrow. The Rockies are visiting the Cubs this weekend and I am going to my first game at Wrigley!
  15. I have similar experience with differentially caring about teams and their respective sports. The difference between the Chiefs and the NFL is the largest but the Rockies have been so hopeless for so long that they have fallen down the list and MLB has remained. Maybe they can change that!
