  1. In any sport at any level, what would you be? Would you choose to be a superstar or a role guy? What position? What city? Give as many or as few details as you’d like. Here it goes: I’m the baddest closer in baseball, preferably for the St. Louis Cardinals, but I’d play anywhere. I’ve got a flaming fastball that regularly touches triple digits and a nasty cutter that is damn near unhittable. You could describe my pitching style as violent. I wear #50. Of course I have a mullet that’s a little thin up top, but who cares, sideburns and a sweet ‘stache and I’m always dripping with sweat. I wear my jersey a little baggy with tall stirrups because the Cardinals socks are :censored:ing sweet. When I come into the game, everyone knows it’s OVER. Its game 7 of the World Series and we’re winning 3-2 in the top of the 8th, the starter is in trouble with runners on 2nd and third with one out. The manager walks to the mound and calls for the right hander. I walk out of the bullpen at Busch Stadium-walk not run- Stranglehold is blaring from the stadium speakers and the standing room crowd is going absolutely insane. The noise is deafening. Of course I strike out the side and we go to the bottom of the 8th and the house is shaking. We get a runner on with one out but the next batter hits into a double play. Now it’s the top of the 9th and this is what I get paid for. Everyone knows the game is pretty much in the bag, you can feel the air in the stadium buzzing with electricity. The Angels have the meat of their order up to bat 2, 3, 4. The first batter pops up on the first pitch-a high fastball-one out. Second batter, a leftie, battles, running the count full after fouling off a couple hard fastballs. He strikes out looking on a cutter that cuts him off at the knees. Now there are two outs and the fans are on their feet and the place is rocking. The Angels’ cleanup hitter is the best in the game. He’s the AL home run leader and he has one last chance to keep his team alive. First pitch is a 98 mph fastball low and away, just missed-ball 1. Second pitch is another fastball low and in. This one is a strike looking. 1-1. Third pitch is a fastball that catches a bit too pitch of the plate, but he’s a little late and fouls it off-strike 2. Now the place is REALLY out of control. The catcher calls for a cutter and I shake him off. Fastball it is. I wind up and let it rip. High and out over the plate, but it’s too high for the batter to catch up and he can’t lay off. Swing and a miss. The game’s over. Fireworks are going off, people are screaming and crying and I just wrapped up the Cardinals’ 12th World Series title. I told this story to my wife last night and I couldn’t tell if she was a little turned on or a little concerned for my mental health. Maybe both.
  2. Second attempt at updating Washington: this time I went with the Redwolves nickname that’s been floated around. I actually think it makes a lot of sense, so I thought I’d whip up a logo/uniform concept The look stays pretty true to what the team has traditionally worn, with some minor tweaks. I don’t think I love the yellow jersey, but I wanted to stay away from black and throwbacks are probably off-limits. I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts on the Redwolves and Bengals. Thanks again for taking the time to have a look.
  3. The Bengals are long overdue for a uniform update and we’re finally getting it this off-season. Here’s my stab at what I would expect/like to see: As always, I’d love to know what everyone thinks. The orange pants and tiger striped socks might be too much, but I thought they were at least worth putting down on paper. Thanks for taking a look.
  4. That’s the first uniform I thought of. I love it but I didn’t wanna be the guy to post “THE PAINTING”
  5. I love yellow football jerseys. A yellow jersey with a dark helmet and white pants is a great look, IMO
  6. I don’t really like the Browns’ orange pants all that much. Although to be fair, I think that has more to do with the shade of orange than the actual idea of orange pants. Sometimes the helmets and orange pants damn near look red on TV. The old orange (before the 2015? rebrand)was far better.
  7. Just got on here to say exactly this. They should be wearing baby blue sleeves/gloves, etc.
  8. Of course I think the very idea of the Rams using “bone” colored uniforms is terrible, but I’d be way less offended by them if they had just been an inverse of the blue jerseys, with yellow sleeves, and not actually used any white. The use of bone and white together is jarring.
  9. Is it just me or do the Rams jerseys look particularly dingy in Seattle today? The white panel in the sleeve is more visible than usual for some reason. I don’t know ifs the camera or the Seattle light. Cripes, do I hate the Rams for :censored:ing up what should have been an easy uniform update.
  10. I’ll join BBTV on the Bills bandwagon. I think I’ve actually been on it for a few weeks anyway. I like that team and I like their coach. I think they have the best shot of any AFC team to knock of Kansas City
  11. That was a fumble. I thought it was pretty obvious after the replay. Bad call
  12. Gold pants are definitely the only pair of pants the Saints need, but the the black stripe is bad. It should match the helmet
  13. Little late to the party, but I think Illinois needs an orange helmet with a double stripe to match the pants. Blue doesn’t necessarily look bad, just wrong.
  14. I like the new athletic gold, but I don’t think I like it more than metallic gold for them. I will say that I love the way they use gray/silver along with the gold. It’s a sharp look.
  15. I’m not in love with the Dolphins throwback uniforms. As a throwback, sure they’re nice but the striping/design is generic 60’s-70’s football uniform. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, I just don’t think they’re anything special. The striping pattern (Should be Aqua/white/orange/white/aqua on the pants and helmet) and number font are really the only issues I have with the current uniforms. Everything else, including the logo is good.
