  1. If they make them available at retail, I am *so* buying a Revs version.
  2. I might be wrong on this, but isn't there a rule requiring numbers on the front of the jersey?
  3. It's......not too bad, actually. Granted the name is still the all-too-formulaic CITY ADJECTIVE PLURAL NOUN that's been infesting the minor leagues in recent years, but I like the clever nod to the prior identity by giving the guy a Dale Earnhardt mustache. (That along with the stealth 3 in the B.) Plus the historical nod to the Cannon textile mill works. I'd be really interested to see the rest of the logo set.
  4. Anybody else tiring of the <<CITY>> <<ADJECTIVE>> <<ANIMAL(S)>> MiLB team name formula yet? Because I am.
  5. It'll be "Huntsville" or "Madison" within two years, because people who don't know better will plug "Rocket City" in their GPS and not find it. (Precedent: the "Hardware City" Rock Cats, which lasted two seasons before becoming "New Britain" because nobody outside New Britain knew what "Hardware City" WAS.)
  6. https://www.lids.com/new-era/style_mlb-turn-ahead-the-clock-59fifty-cap Theyyyyyy'reeeee baaaaaack...... (makes note to get to Lids this weekend to buy the Red Sox one)
  7. Well, since a couple of knock-offs were introduced earlier, here's the genuine article:
  8. Nor women's college basketball: (EDIT: I spent post 2,800 on the Tennessee Lady Volunteers. I shall watch the 1995 Women's Final Four title game as penance.)
  9. It was the early '70s. That was the style.
  10. Maybe. The Red Claws' current home, the Expo, seats about 3100. The Cross Insurance Arena seats about double that (numbers per Wikipedia). They could move in there (better location downtown the biggest plus), but I think the more intimate confines of the Expo might be more cost-effective.
  11. Prediction: Tunsil drops out of the first round...and falls all the way to #60, where my Patriots snag him. (Hell, if you're gonna be a villain.....)
  12. Nah. It's over. Only chances left are either an en banc appeal in front of the whole 2nd Circuit or SCOTUS. Both are long shots.
  13. I think it's more like "you're doing Hard Knocks if you don't draft Sam". Either way, that's really underhanded. But what else is new in Goodell's NFL?
  14. Those aren't bad, but I really hope that "Hardware City" jersey is a home alternate. Part of the reason the New Britain Rock Cats switched from Hardware City was nobody outside of New Britain knew what it meant.
  15. The Phillies do it, but it doesn't bother me all that much.
  16. Get ready for Relocation II: The Race To London!
  17. Ideally Color Rush would have no future, but it's the NFL in 2015. Chasing merchandise dollars is what it does.
  18. That's because the new Majestic logo will appear on all the authentics next season. They're clearing out old stock.
