  1. Here's an article on the Astros' ring and the symbolism behind it: https://www.mlb.com/astros/fans/ring-ceremony
  2. I agree on the late ninety's set. By itself its a good look. But in the lineage of the Astros, its out of place. When Drayton McLane bought the team he took their identity and threw it in the trash. Then he set the trash on fire when he wanted them to look like the G-D-yankees. I'll take the old navy/orange/rainbow looks over all else any day of the week.
  3. Corpus Christi Hooks going as the "Blue Ghosts" on June 21 in honor of the USS Lexington. https://twitter.com/cchooks/status/964229811932684288
  4. The Alpine Cowboys play at Kokernot Field, built by and named after the family that owns the "o6" ranch. The "logo" is the brand of the ranch and the Kokernots. Fitting that a team named Cowboys would have a cattle brand as it's logo. The logo of the Trinidad Triggers is just that, a baseball and a gun trigger.
  5. Am I the only one who's bothered by the fact that the aircraft carrier is a mirror image?
  6. Well yeah I couldn't care less who they would use for the silhouette. Why not Donovan? Too much forehead?
  7. Any chance we might see some uniforms without long-sleeve undershirts? That's my only complaint so far.

  10. God how I wish that Astros set was the primary and not the alternate! This is an amazing undertaking you have here and the work is phenomenal. Like others have said, this is the first thread I look for everyday and I have never been disappointed. Keep up the great work!

    2011 MLS Kits

    Doesn't the MLS have a rule that sponsors can only be in black or white, or a team color?
  12. The rule either got scrapped for this season or AC Milan are ignoring it. They wore the striped red/black without the single-color back panel (as they had in previous seasons). AC Milan v Marseille - UCL Matchday 5 They ignored it. Article 19.01 of the 09/10 Champions League Regulations says that "the UEFA Kit Regulations (2008 ed.) apply to all matches in the competition", and Article 10.03 of the UEFA Kit Regulations says "single-colour background."
  13. Looks good despite the team. My only nitpick is the uneven spacing between the red areas.
  14. I only have two comments about this. 1. Other than being another in a long line of Texas teams that use the "red, white, and blue", I kinda like this set. I agree that Texas teams should show more originallity and move away from the colors of our flag, but sometimes it just works. I can't see this working with any other color scheme. 2. I live in Victoria and didn't even know we had this team. Its nice that we're getting more sports teams in town, regardless of what they look like. Besides, what they look like doesn't matter as much as how well they play. There is very little for families to do together and a day at the ball game is a great addition, and I can see this team being successful in our community. Now if we could only give Riverside Stadium a renovation so all our local baseball teams can have a home stadium they are proud of, V-town will be on its way.

    Soccer Kits

    Nice work as always Brian. One thing I noticed, on the West Ham primary, the back numbers aren't solid, you can see through to the shirt pattern. Other than that, nice work!
  16. I know this is asking alot, but is there anyway you could turn some of these into desktop wallpapers? I don't think I'm alone in thinking that would be an awesome thing to do. I would even be inclined to buy one off of you if need be.
  17. Amazing as always Brian! As for Houston Dynamo, might I suggest using "Forever Orange." That, along with "Dream. Scream. Believe." seem to be the two mottoes the front office is trying to push and the two you see plastered on almost every piece of Dynamo regalia. Keep up the great work!

    Soccer Kits

    A note on your MLS kits, I just noticed you forgot the star on KC and Houston. Also, does anyone know if Columbus is still wearing their Lamar Hunt patch? I thought I remembered hearing somewhere that they were going to make it permanent, but I've never noticed whether they did or not.

    Thanks for adding Houston, Brian. These are looking good. This new template is starting to grow on me, but I still prefer your old one. Are we gonna see any 3rds from the EPL?

    Toronto has NOT worn white shorts at all this year. Also, where's Houston?

    Still looking good with the new template, but I'll chime in with liking YOUR template better.

    Nice work Brian. I always look forward to your soccer posts. These are top notch like always! One small thing I noticed, the EPL patch on the ManU aways should be gold. Also, don't forget the thirds for Blackburn (red & black) and West Ham (white/claret).
  23. I hope these aren't the real thing. That blue sleeve is horrible. Make both sleeves orange and you have a winner.
