  1. It's not a limitation if it's a conscious choice. I found it a refreshing change of pace that a 90s team treated the equipment as just equipment. Not everything needs to be jammed with design elements. But, the bigger issue this caused is now the color balance is all off. Those blue and red shades should never touch, and the new numbers look awful because of that. It wasn't an A+ uniform to begin with, but all these small changes have killed this look.
  2. I've said it before, and I will say it again; If you think the Avs look better without black
  3. Canadiens in red against the Bruins in white has always been my favorite NHL matchup.
  4. I'm really interested in seeing how the Final Four route works this year compared to the usual conference championships, because I'm hoping this format sticks around post-covid.
  5. The navy shorts for Columbus are similar to the blue shorts for the Avalanche, black socks for the Bruins, and white numbers for the Blues. Does it look better? I guess. But it doesn't look right.
  6. Eh. While I agree this is a publicity stunt, I honestly don't care what/who a team wants to put into their own "ring of honor." It's more or less an Employee of the Month award. Want to put in a kid with cancer that spent a lot of time with the team? Sure. Want to put in your mascot? Sure. Want to put in the owner's dog? Why not? I think people put way too much emphasis on hall of fames and even more unnecessary emphasis on team's individual ring of whatevers. Anybody spending substantial time arguing against "honoring" an athlete should probably find a healthier obsession.
  7. That's with just the name "Peachtree." If you factor in streets that contain the word Peachtree (Peachtree Park, Peachtree Hills, Peachtree Forest, etc.) in their name it jumps up over 70. My favorite of which being Peachtree Battle Avenue.
  8. In their press release they mentioned “several jersey modifications” or something to that effect, which I assumed meant swapping number colors. But there hasn’t been any official look at those changes yet.
  9. I'm sure I'll get used to it in time, but as of right now I hate it.
  10. As @sportsfan7 mentioned above, there are a few other recognized major leagues who are not apart of MLB and whose stats are not used to determine MLB records so this won't change anything in that regard. I imagine this was mainly done so that, as @GDAWG said, they can finally induct some Negro League players into the baseball hall of fame that were previously excluded because they did not have 10 years of "major league" service time.
  11. Katie dressed for Colorado but never actually played.
  12. I could be mistaken, but I believe Ball sold off its canning jar manufacturing business (as well as licensed out the name) awhile ago. So while the jars still say Ball, they’re made by a completely separate company.
  13. Ball hasn’t manufactured canning jars in quite some time. Most of their business is in aerospace manufacturing now, as well as trying to replace plastic cups with recyclable aluminum cups. They’re also one of Colorado’s largest employers. Ball Arena sounds like a weird name at first, but there’s honestly no better ‘Colorado’ company to sell the rights to.
  14. Not the Colorado team I thought would make the conference finals, but I’ll take it!
  15. It's a bit of Stockholm syndrome for sure, but I feel the same way. Their current look isn't spectacular but it's better than any other idea I have seen presented for the team and it's stuck this long. I was fairly certain they were going to switch to the alternate look when Adidas took over and am so glad they didn't. The alternate faux-Rockies look is just so boring and forgettable. EDIT: And as someone born and raised in Colorado, I am so sick of seeing the damn flag on everything. I wouldn't be surprised if the NHL had a rule about switching brezzers for a non-event one off. I can't think of an example where a team wore different breezers with their primary look for a random game in the middle of a season.
  16. They just got a new owner almost a year ago. They also replaced their CFO a couple months ago. This embarrassing error is probably due to high turnover within their finance department because of the new CFO and a complete lack of organization during the switchover of employees.
  17. That was a heart-breaking exit for the Avalanche. The Avs were such a fun time to watch all year, and this series with Dallas was fantastic. Even with the injuries and the third string goalie, I thought they were going to pull off the comeback. I'll now be rooting for the Canucks to get a Canadian team the cup again. But, Vegas/Dallas would be an incredibly physical series and a lot of fun to watch.
  18. I have no issue with the black numbers on the road, and I actually prefer the black breezers and helmets to any other idea I've seen mocked up. What bothers me the most about the new uniforms is that the back numbers and captain patches are outlined in silver while the sleeve numbers are outlined in slate/burgundy. If they do nothing else, they really need to switch the sleeve number outlines to silver.
  19. The saving graces of the powder blue look was the shiny fabric and the absence of navy. Once they switched to the matte fabric in @DG_ThenNowForever's middle pic, that was the beginning of the end. The yellow skyline alts were good, but they quickly committed to navy after those were released and we ended up with this set.
