    This isn’t news for 2020, but I just noticed details on a uniform from a decade ago that I had never seen before and thought I should share.



    Did anyone know that they featured a rubberized stripe pattern on the shoulder? How did this escape me for this long?




    Thank God they got rid of those uniforms because those were the absolute low point of Cal football.  The only good things were the colors and number font.  They look fantastic now.

    Yes! It's difficult to outline it my point, but what I mean is that there are two different ways to establish a striping pattern's consistency and in either measure Auburn is not cohesive. 


    The home jersey works with the helmet as a simple inverse (always 5 stripes). You could also make the argument that the home jersey matches the pants (always the same color sequence). But by either rule you don't have a cohesive set because the pants don't match the helmet.



    I think the bit of black looks really cool, but for a full time look I prefer going back to the classic white TV numbers.




    The team has teased that they are going to wear the 68 throwbacks (black TV numbers) for the Fiesta Bowl this year. It's also rumored that they may go to them full time, which I would prefer (black or white TV numbers) to the current set that has no gray on the home jersey.



    Overall I love the set. Looks great, especially in the newer templates IMO.

    I also hope, unlike their primaries since these jerseys came out, they use the Block O on the chest (rather than the primary logo) and the Buckeye leaves for titles on the back neck (rather than the Buckeyes wordmark).


    On that note, I like the thicker black stripes on the pants, even if it’s inconsistent with the helmet stripes.

    Dodger Stadium hasn't gotten everything right in its renovations; they're as guilty as anyone of whittling foul ground down to nothing in pursuit of more and more expensive seats, and it doesn't play as a pitcher's park quite the way it used to. 


    Agree.  The worst part is that they destroyed the original dugouts, one of the most important parts of the ballpark.  I understand why they did it, but it wouldn’t have happened on my watch.

    This has already been said, but not is worth stating again. This year’s post season logo package is fantastic. 


    I don’t know about fantastic, but it is pretty solid.

    I'm not happy to see yet another World Series played in batting practice jerseys, all in the name of superstition.  (Yes, I know they're "alternates".)  It's like someone wearing a hoodie to their wedding.


    Or a team being officially called Vegas instead of Las Vegas.

  6. The Blue Jackets and Wild played at Reunion Arena.

    The Predators played at the Great Western Forum and McNichols Sports Arena and they might’ve played at Maple Leaf Gardens and Greensboro Coliseum.

    The Hurricanes played at Miami Arena.

    The Coyotes might have played at the Capitol Center.

     The Avalanche might have played at the Montreal Forum, Ottawa Civic Centre, Buffalo Memorial Auditorium, and the Spectrum.

     The Mighty Ducks played at Chicago Stadium and St. Louis Arena.  The Panthers might have too.

     The Thrashers played at Consol Energy Center.

    The Whalers played at Bell Centre, Canadian Tire Centre, KeyBank Centre, Wells Fargo Center, and Amalie Arena (all of which had different names at the time).

     The Jets played at Rogers Arena and might have played at TD Garden (both also had different names).

     The Nordiques might have played at United Center and Kiel Center (now Enterprise Center).


     The Nationals played at Busch Memorial Stadium.

     The Devil Rays played at the Kingdome.  The Diamondbacks might have played there too.

     The Kansas City A’s played at Anaheim Stadium.


  7. This has probably already been mentioned, but there is a new batting helmet model this year that some players are wearing.  It looks like the baseball equivalent of the Riddell Speedflex, with all those ridges and vents that serve no purpose.  It looks really ugly and I hope it doesn’t catch on.

    Historic?! Bill Clinton was President, Kurt Cobain died, and OJ was arrested the year this place opened. Let's save that adjective for things that pre-date Zubaz shorts, please?


    It’s called sarcasm.

    This is criminal. I'm 50 and I've actually seen teams now have two new stadiums built. Giants and Jets didn't need one, it was perfect for football. Why is the Superdome lasting so long then? Some of these stadiums never were even torn down i.e. Astrodome, CAA arena in NJ. Makes no sense sometimes but there's Wrigley, Fenway, Superdome etc. Not one cent should go to these greedy bastards or what are they gonna do...THREATEN TO MOVE THE TEAM. How did that work out for you Spanos? I didn't even know about the Rangers getting a new stadium, makes no sense.


    It makes a lot of sense.  It gets hot and humid as hell in Texas in the summer and it rains a lot, so they really need a retractable roof.

    I have two thoughts on this.


    1. The Rangers are getting a new stadium?!


    2. Why?


    Because they made the mistake of building an outdoor stadium in a very hot and humid climate.

    Why build a retractable roof at all then? Just build a roof.


    Like, I know that sounds like a smart-ass comment but i'm honestly asking. I mean, they're putting a glass roof on the thing anyways, just keep it closed and climate controlled if that is the issue that is leading to attendance problems. 


    Baseball is meant to be played outside, and they want the option of doing so when the weather is nice enough.
