  1. Strangely, Christian Vazquez of the Red Sox is wearing St Louis Cardinals socks in tonight's game. If he wanted a fancy sock, why not go with the traditional Red Sox pattern?
  2. There have been a lot more than that over the years. Here are some examples:
  3. The Patriots and Colts simply need to show Nike a picture of the 2019 Panthers jerseys and say, "Give us these stripes in our colors! Double the thickness of the outer edges and we're good to go".
  4. I always thought the ears of grain shown withing the Brewers logos were barley, one of the primary ingredients in brewing beer. I am very surprised they are listed as wheat, which is an ingredient in certain types of beer, but certainly not part of the American lager style that Milwaukee is famous for. https://brewers.fanportal-mlb.com/glovestory/ "A brand-new mark, the Wheat Ball is inspired by wheat from past Brewers logos to honor MKE's brewing tradition." The news story on the Brewers site about the redesign refers to the script from 2000 as having barley and the new 2020 ball logo having barley. Strange. https://www.mlb.com/brewers/news/brewers-new-uniforms-2020 The Brewers wore the logo from 1978-93, the final season of Robin Yount’s Hall of Fame career. In ‘94, for their 25th season in Milwaukee, the club made the dubious decision to change to an interlocking “M” and “B,” then changed again in 2000 with a script “Brewers” adorned with barley to mark the pending move to Miller Park. • The alternate home uniforms are white with familiar pinstripes, matching the Brewers’ look when they first introduced the ball-in-glove. On the left sleeve of both versions of the home uniform is a baseball patch with seams of barley, borrowing from the 2000-19 logo.
  5. I'd like to see the gold button returned to the top of the cap.
  6. Portland, Oregon hosts the Little League Softball World Series and the state has an entry as a regional champion. https://www.littleleague.org/world-series/2019/llsbws/ UNITED STATES REGIONS LLSB Central Region LLSB East Region LLSB Oregon D4 Region LLSB Southeast Region LLSB Southwest Region LLSB West Region INTERNATIONAL REGIONS LLSB Asia-Pacific Region LLSB Canada Region LLSB Europe-Africa Region LLSB Latin America Region
  7. Interestingly, Dee Gordon wore Twin City Knitting 2-n-1 stirrups with a traditional 3-stripe design. Pitcher Matt Festa wore real stirrups which were plain royal blue.
  8. A championship ring has been created for France's World Cup players. http://www.espn.com/soccer/club/france/478/blog/post/3805817/inspired-by-the-nba-paul-pogba-and-antoine-griezmann-deliver-world-cup-rings-to-france
  9. The gold on the name and numbers is dye sublimated onto white twill with decorative stitching around the edges of the gold parts. I think it appears a shade lighter with that application instead of true gold twill sewn on top of a separate layer of white twill.
  10. The Red Sox announced Brandon Phillips will wear number zero. They didn't mention the fact that he is first ever to wear that single number. No one in team history has worn 00 either. All time uniform numbers for Red Sox: http://www.redsoxdiehard.com/players/unifnums.html

  12. Brothers J D Drew and Stephen Drew both wore #7 for the Red Sox.
  13. No, I think Canada's inspiration was North Attantic lobster tail.
  14. Wow. Quite ugly. Team USA was inspired by Bald Eagle feathers. USA Hockey Unveils Nike 2018 Olympic/Paralympic Jersey Other jersey highlights include:• The inspirational slogan of Land of the Free – Home of the Brave hidden in the back neck of the jersey• Injected silicone molds make the trim pop• Graphic on the sleeve was inspired by bald eagle feathers and represents the theme of fluid force• The flicker film (rather than heavy twill) base for the crest and numbers increase vibrancy and sparkles under arena lights.

  16. The two alternate captains for the Bruins in last night's game each had a different A stitched on his jersey. David Krejci wore the A from the new 2017 nameplate font and Brad Marchand had an A from the last several years. Here is the old alternate uniform that featured the same A that Marchand wore last night. Marchand also wore the same style A in an exhibition game vs Chicago. Patrice Bergeron had the new one.
  17. How come the Lakers and Nike can't see there is a huge problem with the space at the top of numeral 9? The 6 does not have the same issue.
  18. The foot at the bottom of the numeral 4 stretches down too far compared to the Braves' original. The Turn Back The Clock version looks a bit odd with that big gap of white.
  19. This is the first official picture I've seen from the Celtics. Goofy shorts and missing armpit stripes as expected.
  20. Looks the same. I assume numbers will be black and gold, no white middle outline. Socks will match jersey sleeve and waist stripes. https://www.nhl.com/bruins/news/nhl-and-adidas-unveil-the-boston-bruins-new-uniforms/c-290023504 "...this uniform platform change did provide an appropriate opportunity to simplify the coloration of the number & letter systems, improving arena and broadcast readability. In addition, the team updated both the home and away sock coloration to mimic the respective jersey sleeve striping pattern."
  21. Whoops. I thought that was white jersey. I realize this is the orange one.
  22. The lettering is slightly different as well. Serifs at the tops of some letters go both ways instead of only pointing left as before. Look at U, I, and N and compare to the BRUINS nameplate on the teaser image.
  23. So the Bruins are going back to 2-color names on the black jersey.
  24. Page providing some details abouth the new ring: http://www.patriots.com/news/2017/06/09/patriots-presented-super-bowl-li-championship-rings-jostens "Crafted in 10-karat white gold, the ring has a carat weight of 5.1 and features a stone count of more than 280 diamonds, including five marquise-cut diamonds representing the franchise's five Vince Lombardi trophies."
