  1. Uniwatch story on the Vikings' original uniform

    That is interesting. Maybe the design wasn't lost at that time. Maybe the Vikings had a copy that's sitting in a landfill it was dumped in during the mob to the Metrodome.
  2. Uniwatch story on the Vikings' original uniform

    Fascinating story. As another Viking fan, I'm not sure how interested the rest of us will be, but I thought this was really interesting and I knew none of it. It's really amazing that this one link to this history hung on the designer's wall for decades while the rest of the world had no idea. I'm glad the daughter ended up sharing it with the Vikings. Almost nobody had any idea that the University of Washington inspired the colors. And that the horns may (there seems to be no confirmation either way) have been inspired by a Rams fan.
  3. Championship Preferences

    I'm with you here. NFL/MLB evolved to essentially merge two competing leagues with similar coverage. NHL/NBA did not really do that. East/West makes sense in those leagues, but what MLB and the NFL are doing makes sense as well. I don't know the "soccer" model, but I assume you mean that the playoffs are essentially conference-free. The WNBA started this a couple of years ago (perhaps so Minnesota and LA could end up in the finals? Which they have both years). I'd probably find a similar change in any of the "big 4" to be jarring. But starting fresh? I dunno...I like the idea of two conferences setting up historic finals rivalries (Celtics/Lakers) and even seemingly annual playoff rivalries (Bulls/Pistons of the late 1980s, etc.) but there probably is more "integrity" to skipping conferences (see Big Ten divisions).

    Miami's NOB font stinks. But everything else looks great.
  5. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    If the Cavs keep playing like this and take a first- or second-round exit from the playoffs, the "effort" (combined with the one title and, I hope, no "The Decision") should make people much more forgiving when LeBron leaves.

    The Big Ten is probably done in the national title race unless Wisconsin ( who is not very good) can run the table and some other stuff happens.
  7. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    The T-Wolves haven't looked great, but two losses were without Butler and they are actually closing out close games, which has been a problem since late in the (real) KG era.

    It's been said that Teddy Bridgewater was not that far away from losing a leg. https://nesn.com/2016/09/was-teddy-bridgewater-in-danger-of-losing-leg-after-severe-knee-injury/ That's frightening to think about. I've never heard of that happening with a football injury (doesn't mean that hasn't, of course). But these happened at NFL facilities. I'm sure there are plenty of high schoolers who'd have lost their legs.

    And that turned out to be huge.

    Not sure how Barnes took second carrying those giant balls.

  12. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    What I like best about Wazzu is their colors. The absence of gray hurts this look.

    Smart money is on CC and the Yankees. But they have struggled on the road.
  14. My Vision for the Future of the NBA

    They'd certainly have more playoff appearances if this happened. That aside, I've always wanted this just to create potential rivalries with closer opponents but especially to they'll play fewer late games.
  15. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    The Yankees have something magical going on. I know that's bordering on superstitious, but it's nevertheless something I don't bet against. The only reason I don't think it's in the bag is because they will have to beat Verlander or Kuechel.
