  1. Be glad Marv Albert doesn't call (former) 'Skins games: "The REDSKINS with the touchdown!" "And now they're saying it's the [new team name]." (On a side note, why not rebrand as the Washington Pigskins?)
  2. I won't lie: I don't like the Kings' old purple and gold scheme. But this -- wow. The new shade of purple is excellent and the gold is a nice twist. Truly a "refresh." And while these are great the way they are, eventually, if some black were added as a nod to the Greztky era, that wouldn't look bad either.
  3. The Albuquerque Sand Kraken would "work" for a lower minor league hockey team...
  4. I once read an article pointing out that "pink is a girls color" didn't really become a thing until the 80s, and that 100-150 years ago blue was a girls color because it was "cool" and pink fell into the "hot" red range. There were even military units back then that wore pink uniforms. Sorry I don't have a link, but it was an interesting read.
  5. Other than the darker green blending into the black, I always though the most "Dallas-ization" of the last North Stars set was an improvement: The widening of the stripes, the white Texas shoulder patch, the white numbers and the text on the legs all made for more contrast. The Minnesota version did have the advantage of a brighter shade of green, but without any of those other details, there just wasn't enough contrast -- especially when you take into consideration that they'd dropped the yellow and 99.9% of the white from the previous set.
  6. I'm looking forward to the Wings' '96-'97 throwbacks.
  7. I'd say the same about the Pens wearing yellow helmets. Yellow helmets just don't seem to work.
  8. You ever repped the city... in reeeed?
  9. Now this is a story all about how My life got flipped turned upside down And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there I'll tell you how I become the prince of a town called Dall-as In New York City drafted and raised On the playground is where I spent most of my days Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool And all shootin' some b-ball outside of the school When a golddigger, she was up to no good Started makin' trouble in my neighborhood I got in one little lawsuit and my GM got scared He said you're movin' with our backcourt and Lee to Dall-as I whistled for a cab and when it came near The license plate said Mavs and it had boots in the mirror If anything I could say that this cab was rare But I thought man forget it yo homes to Dall-as I pulled up for a three from about 25 or 30 And I yelled to the center yo homes did ya dirty Looked at my kingdom I was finally there To sit on my throne as the prince of Dall-as
  10. A triangle balancing on a mountain peak. Nice.
  11. I was a considerable bit older than 4, and while I know they get mixed reviews, I loved them. I was, and never will be, thrilled about the use of teal (the 2nd most 90s "sellout" color after BFBS), but for me these were the first "Utah" jerseys. The team FINALLY had its own identity instead of continuing the New Orleans set (which I thought was boring at the time), and that really meant a lot to me as a young fan. I'd love to see the Jazz replace the word mark on these uniforms and the 90s logo with the classic music note word mark. That would encapsulate their entire history nicely.
  12. Which is disappointing. I think Utah looks great in green. It's a shame to lose those unis.
  13. The Bulls and Pacers both look great. I think Indy's would look better without the gray stripes, but these are the best they've looked in gold.
  14. This is how you start down the NBA 82 jerseys in 82 games path...
