  1. Completed teams so far: Avalanche Sabres Kings Lightning
  2. Omaha finally picked up their first win of the season this past weekend. They sit at 1-6-1. Despite the terrible start the Mavs looked great on Saturday and I'm confident they can turn things around. Of course the NCHC is as tough as they come so we'll see...
  3. I own a Tsuyoshi Nishioka Minnesota Twins jersey.
  4. The 2001 Thanksgiving game sparked my interest in throwback uniforms. Washington's 2002 throwbacks cemented my interest in uniforms. I was totally hooked. I spent every day of that football season searching for the pocket pro size of that Washington helmet but never found it.
  5. I say if you're going to spend $100+ you may as well spend a little bit more and buy the Adidas version. I have purchased both the Adidas and Fanatics versions. They Adidas version is far better quality for the price.
  6. I don't recall the exact details but there was something about Nebraska football being cursed when wearing white pants on the road.
  7. Oregon has lost 2 national championships wearing uniforms featuring "volt" and "anthracite."
  8. "Which Roy never wore." is a fun sentence when you pronounce his name correctly.
  9. Most hockey players will tell you how important it is for each team to have different helmet and sock colors. They rely heavily on seeing their team's colors quickly to identify teammates. Helmet color isn't as important and is not really a factor in lower leagues where they all wear dark helmets. Sock color is a big factor, however. As long as two teams aren't wearing similar socks in a matchup I think color v color can work.
  10. Mavs have a tough schedule as always but I like where Gabinet has them. We'll probably end up middle of the conference but as long as we do well playing in the conference tournament for once I'd be happy. An NCAA tournament appearance seems like a long shot this year but still a possibility.
  11. Anaheim wore their alternate jerseys tonight and my girlfriend asked why they're wearing Sharks jerseys.
  12. Casey the Lion of the Omaha Royals/Golden Spikes/Storm Chasers: Original: Golden Spikes era: This photo is from the day they unveiled the Golden Spikes name, apparently they didn't have a hat ready yet. He finally got the right hat but that jersey was never worn by the Spikes. It's a Royals leftover with the Spikes mark thrown on. Omaha Royals 2.0: Here's where things go downhill. Horrible color distribution and a red hat Omaha never wore. For some reason they increased the red toward the end of the Rosenblatt era, despite the team not wearing red. Storm Chasers: Recently Casey shed his road uniform in favor of the home uniform after the road uniform was retired by the team. (I just noticed I'm in the last picture, wearing the powder blue hat.)
  13. This perfectly matches my ideal Cubs look. Although at this point they shouldn't drop the pinstripes. Look how beautiful that number font is without any outlines. I know the phrase "pops" is frowned upon but it really describes the royal blue in those photos. The current road wordmark is atrocious. It's so easy to use a simple arched mark in a classic font and yet they totally botched it.
  14. I have the exact opposite opinion. I don't think the outline is neccessary (but I also don't think it's the worst thing ever). But the sleeve cuffs need to go. I know it's become sort of their thing now, but I still don't think it fits the brand.
  15. The Cubs should have solid color numbers and names. Blue or red, but they don't need an outline. There are so many little things the Cubs could do to give their uniforms more of a classic feel. The current set seems a little dated (80's/90's) to me. Don't even get me started on the awful 80's version of the primary logo with the super thick blue circle. Dial it back a bit with the weight of that stroke.
  16. That's a fair point. However, in this case I think the overall point is more that over-designed beer logos/labels were a product of the early 2000's and that era is gone. Regardless of the team's connection to the beer industry they have an outdated look from that same era.
  17. Omaha moves to the Adidas Adizero jerseys this year. Change includes removal of tie-down collar and a new number font.
  18. Minnesota and Pensacola announced a deal today.
  19. Brew Crew in the throwbacks again today!
  20. Change at the AA level: Chattanooga Lookouts become a Reds affiliate once again. Pensacola will most likely link up with Minnesota. There's a chance the Padres end up there instead but all signs point to them going with a new team in Amarillo.
