  1. I like where you're going with trying to keep "red," but I really wish they would go with Washington Pigskins, allowing them to keep their (former) "'Skins" nickname.
  2. I was thinking red, like the previous City jerseys, but, yeah, not yellow.
  3. Sure, when the LA gives "Lakers" back to Minneapolis.
  4. I definitely prefer the previous City Edition court, but this still looks great.
  5. 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?)
  6. 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.
  7. The Albuquerque Sand Kraken would "work" for a lower minor league hockey team...
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. I'm looking forward to the Wings' '96-'97 throwbacks.
  11. I'd say the same about the Pens wearing yellow helmets. Yellow helmets just don't seem to work.
  12. You ever repped the city... in reeeed?
  13. 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
  14. A triangle balancing on a mountain peak. Nice.
