  1. MLB changes 2018?

    Re: The Tugboat: For a few seasons in the early 1980s, the Mariners had this tugboat that was their bullpen car. It was called the "M.S. Relief". Re: The USS Mariner: For most of the 1980s, the Kingdome, where the Mariners played then, also had this thing, the USS Mariner, which was situated in center field. Its cannon would go off whenever a Mariner player hit a home run. A miniature replica was given away at a Mariners game last summer.
  2. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    The position of offensive lineman in football is not the most glamorous. With that said, this is Stan Brock, New Orleans Saint offensive tackle extraordinaire, playing for the San Diego Chargers (he appeared with them Super Bowl XXIX).
  3. MLB changes 2018?

    Bravo to the Diamondbacks! It has been 22 years since a bullpen cart graced an MLB park. I'd love to see more teams go this route, especially with the Mariners; they should bring back the tugboat (and maybe the USS Mariner in center field, while we're at it...).
  4. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    As I posted in the "Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform" thread, today is Kent Tekulve's birthday. Here he his as a Philadelphia Phillie. And here he is in his last year as a Cincinnati Red. (Not pictured: The fact he wore #43 with the Reds.)
  5. Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    Hmmm.... the Seattle Blades? That's one idea I can think of.
  6. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Today is this guy's birthday. This is his "wrong" uniform for the Pirates, his "right" team; he only spent the first three seasons wearing the first iteration of the Pirates' double-knit set. (And also note the wrong number as well- #50 instead of #27!)
  7. MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    Despite the fact that red/navy blue is an overused combo in MLB, the Tacoma Rainiers identity is very much MLB-worthy. The Sacramento RiverCats have a nice identity, as well.
  8. Thrift Store Gems 2018

    Found myself a Shawn Springs Seahawks jersey (2002 style) for $6.
  9. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Mattias Öhlund spent the last two years of his Canucks tenure wearing the Reebok Edge-style Canuck uniforms with the retro color scheme.
  10. Funniest Sports Logos

    -and- These two logos, used by the Pistons in their early days in Fort Wayne, while good for their time, seem rather cheesy by modern standards. That face looks like the Hamburger Helper's.
  11. I've seen these caps before. Aside from the New Era logo cap being on the left side, which makes it inaccurate, most of these caps are nearly faithful to the originals.
  12. Team Color Changes

    The Vancouver Canucks, from 1970-78 were blue and green. From 1978-97, they sported black/orange/gold (the latter two colors became red and yellow in 1992), then from 1997-2007 they were navy blue/red/silver. Things came full circle in 2007 when they went back to blue and green. Personally, I like the 1978-97 "flying skate" logo the team has had. The Seattle Mariners, were, from 1977-92, a blue and yellow team. Since 1993, they went to navy blue/silver/teal. I like both looks equally.
  13. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    The great base-stealing artist (before Rickey Henderson) Lou Brock was a coach for the Montreal Expos in 1993.
  14. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    The super Buffalo Bills LB of the 1980s, Fred Smerlas, played out his last few years with the 49ers.... ....and the Patriots.
