  1. Why? Usually because I like the look of the jersey or logo. Also because my passion for my favourite teams isn't what it was. Wear a fair bit of defunct teams and secondary liking teams. There are a handful or so of teams I won't wear with the Yankees taking the top spot. Will buy Leafs and Canadiens stuff for other people but don't wear them either. Also, living in a smaller city in the middle of butt:censored: nowhere there really isn't anything close to 'hometown' major league team.
  2. Hit a few thrift shops one day last week. For about $20 picked up a couple of hockey books and jerseys. One jersey is a Spokane Chiefs like one but with orange, white and black; other was a bit of a surprising find - a Quad City Mallards (UHL) replica.
  3. The Thunder Bay team 'loaned team' will be the Bismark Flickertails. Here's the logos and schedule for the 3 Bismark teams.
  4. ending to the: 1999 Stanley Cup Finals (skate in the crease, enough said) 1994 Stanley Cup Finals (A Cinderella story with a pumpkin ending) 1985 American League Championship (Me yelling walk Brett already at the t.v.!!!) 2009 Grey Cup (too many men)
  5. For $10 found this framed poster at a thrift store and this puck for a couple (or few?) dollars:
  6. IIHF has jersey images in a newsletter of the jerseys for their 100th anniversary in 2008. Soviet one was based on their 1956 jerseys. Looks like Latvia has a simpler version that predates the Soviet one; Latvia's was from 1934. (images on page 4 of this pdf) Times/Archive/IceTimes_12_1.pdf
  7. If you want to go back much further here's the seal and coat of arms for The Bank of Nova Scotia "Colour reproduction of The Bank of Nova Scotia coat of arms. The Coat of Arms was designed by A. Scott Carter in 1921 and approved by the College of Heralds in 1951.",,476,00.html
  8. Felt similarly when I found a Parramanta Eels shirt/jersey in a Thunder Bay 2nd hand shop. (similar to this but with 3/4 sleeves) and a pair of Rio Grande Killer Bees blankets in a local thrift store.
  9. Believe me I don't, and I don't for any sport. For my first sport hockey - I don't watch that many NHL games on television, but still believe the NHL season lasts to long. Stanley cup should be wrapped up by May long weekend. To quote Ron MacLean's sarcastic comment at the NHL Awards ceremony on June 25, 1998: "It's hard to believe the season's already over"
  10. Haven't watched cricket but have no idea how it works. For me: Basketball is just an orgy of points - needs more defence. Don't mind watching some baseball games in person but most of the time it is a chore to watch a whole MLB game on t.v. Also, WAY too many MLB games in a season. Golf and Racing are of less interest to me than watching paint dry. Oddly enough, though I've never curled I do like to watch curling (which my wife refers to as "nap t.v.")
  11. Not likely to be of interest to most (or all??) here, but picked up a jacket at a local thrift store for $10. It's the team I played bantam for way back in 1981/82. Jacket looks old; could it be as old as that? If I had to guess, probably not quite.
  12. Isn't going to be a local or regional team for me in any football league no matter how crazy they get. Closest CFL or NFL is around 7 plus hours away. I'll stick with the CFL on television. Might check out newer leagues if readily available on t.v.; might watch part of a NFL game while in a sports bar.
