  1. Rare team matchups

    http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/austen-lane-of-the-jacksonville-jaguars-pressures-matthew-stafford-of-picture-id155473733 Only meeting ever between those two uniform sets, in 2012. The next meeting this year will have the Jags in their completely different uniform set, and the Lions will be due for a change in the not-too-distant future.
  2. Thrift Store Gems 2016

    ^ I actually found a jersey like that earlier this year. I passed on it because the screen-printing was too worn for my standards.
  3. 2016 CFL Uniforms

    The BC Lions dropped their video of their new look today.
  4. Teams In The Wrong Stadium

    Just looks weird to have the SUV there like that. If only they'd made Barclays Center more hockey-friendly....
  5. Teams In The Wrong Stadium

    http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/basketball-nba-finals-overall-view-of-golden-state-warriors-players-picture-id475007368 Due to scheduling conflicts, the Golden State Warriors were unable to use the Oakland Coliseum Arena for their 1975 NBA Finals games, playing instead at Daly City's Cow Palace.
  6. 2016 CFL Uniforms

    https://ca.sports.yahoo.com/blogs/cfl-55-yard-line/bo-levi-mitchell-takes-photo-of-cfl-ball-prototypes--but-they-re-not-coming-soon-181036063.html- Regarding the black-striped balls: They're merely prototypes, according to this blog entry from Yahoo Canada Sports's CFL blog, The 55 Yard Line. No changes will be made to the game balls themselves at this time.
  7. Thrift Store Gems 2016

    ^ Sadly, there was only one.
  8. Thrift Store Gems 2016

    Got a Yomiuri Giants cap for $3.
  9. Teams In The Wrong Stadium

    ^ Regarding the Jays playing in Montreal: It's nice that they drew nice-sized crowds, but they should play at least one or two regular season series in Montreal, sort of as a peace offering for the baseball fans of Montreal. I'd love to see it happen, personally.
  10. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    While we're on the subject... From his early years. Right team, just the wrong uniform design. And look at that fuller head of hair!
  11. Thrift Store Gems 2016

    @Chewbacca; It's the fabric used by the pre-Reebok Edge hockey jerseys.
  12. Thrift Store Gems 2016

    Been a while, but I found a Montreal Alouettes sideline shirt and a Chunichi Dragons Kosuke Fukudome jersey; both of them were $6 each.
  13. Rare team matchups

    Another noteworthy thing about that 2003 Rams/Bengals matchup: Riall Johnson's FNOB is there. That was because the 2003 Bengals squad hadfourguys with the last name Johnson that year (the other three were Jeremi, Rudi, and of course, Chad 'Ochocinco').
  14. Rare team matchups

    Only time the white-pants 49ers met the Bengals (1996); by 1999, both teams made a few changes to their looks. While we're on the subject of the Bengals.... The only time these two uniform sets met in 2003.
  15. Thrift Store Gems 2016

    In the 2015 thread, I touched upon this: During the 1990s, before the NFL went to one manufacturer (first Reebok, now Nike)to make the on-field/retail uniforms, jerseys sold for retail, whether it was a mere replica or their ProLine jerseys (the latter being the ones closest to looking like the real on-field product) was a crapshoot as to who would be the manufacturer. Of particular note, one manufacturer was Wilson/Staff, which is Wilson's golf division. I find it really odd and peculiar that Wilson's golf division would make jerseys for the NFL.....
