 Now it almost comical with how much instinctual vitriol I have towards that franchise.

But seriously, I get that.  I actually don't hate the Sharks.  I'd be much more into them if they had their original color scheme and a logo set that wasn't from a FOX Saturday morning cartoon series.

The fact teams don't change their ugly color schemes back to the ones that people associate them with (Such as the Brewers, Sharks, Jazz, Rockets, Flames, Mavericks even the Hawks)

 

The fact that the A's haven't moved out of the ugly sinkhole that is O.Co Coliseum.

 

The fact that Seattle has gotten their Sonics back, nor received an NHL team.

What about the NFL not letting Houston keep the Oilers history like Cleveland got to keep the Browns history? Or keeping the Colts history in Baltimore? Or the Rams history in Los Angeles?

What about Stan Kroenke not coming clean about bringing the Rams back to LA?

What about the Padres changing out of the brown and gold years ago?

What about Kansas City not getting an NBA or NHL team after they built the Sprint Center?

I was actually expecting Admiral to come out with one of his usual tirades against the team, but good on you for getting the zing in there. As for the hate, I find it weird San Jose seems to attract more hatred more on the jersey aesthetics, not postseason performance.

 

And on a non-sports related gear grinder, I find it very frustrating and annoying how anxiety randomly pops up and prevents me from getting some rest. I passed out for an hour, then randomly woke-up experiencing some restless and took about an hour or so of help from the girlfriend before I was able to drift off again. It's just so hard having a setback when you feel momentum is pushing you in the other direction.

Gotta love spring weather getting your hopes up and then smashing them right back down again  <_<

 

Also, yes, that is snow the day after it reached 25 degrees (77 Fahrenheit.) Ottawa, God bless.

The phrase "good on you." 

 

"Good on __" just doesn't sound right.

Ordering jerseys. Every time I do it, no matter the sport, no matter the process used, it just goes to crap. The suppliers act like their world is some s00per-s33krit world that the mere mortal can't possibly understand, and obfuscate every step of the process.

In the current episode, I ordered fully-sublimated jerseys for my softball team. After combing through the supplier's website, I put together a mockup similar to theirs and sent it as an Illustrator file; here's what it looks like:

After a slow start to the project, I finally got a mockup from the designer today:

....yeaaaaaaah, no. I pointed out the severe color differences, and I keep getting pushback from the designer; he mentioned monitor differences, something vague about their RGB colors, etc.

My feelings right now:

There is a major difference in your design (which is awesome btw) and theirs. I would be pissed off as well if I were you.

To be fair, I did eventually get him to send a list of the available colors, and I think we came to an agreement on a better solution:

We'll see what they turn out as on fabric, mind, but I feel a bit better for the moment.

(And, also: thank you for the compliment.)

That's a huge improvement over the original mockup they gave you. Please post a picture of one of the real jerseys when you get them!
