  1. I just now remembered that the Rams jerseys are bone now. It's not the best uniform they've ever worn, but they're not at all as bad as we thought they were. They might even grow on me as the season goes on.
  2. When I was really, really little, my first exposure to hockey was reading the World Book encyclopedia mention the Islanders during their Stanley Cup run. So my tiny brain just accepted that they were a big deal. It always weirded me out how a team that was so dominant could just disappear. Now I feel like I've come full circle in a strange kind of way.
  3. You said "Jags" and "return to glory" in the same sentence.
  4. The new Rams helmets have grown on me.
  5. I don't know if it's already been said but I really like the tiny bit of red on the Buffalo's eye. It's just a little touch but it works.
  6. I didn't know what Thom Brenaman said at first, and I didn't really think I wanted to. Then after a brief discussion with my wife I got curious so I looked it up. Wow. Holy crap, you guys.
  7. I love this. I also love when all of a city's pro teams coordinate with each other in terms of color schemes and general themes. I don't like unintentional rhymes but hey, what are you gonna do?
  8. I'm not even 50% sure it's even gonna start.
  9. That hat looks like it belongs to a charter fishing outfit, not a hockey team.
  10. I miss the World Series patch being on the left side of the cap. The camera angle they use on the broadcast made it so much more prominent and helped to make it feel like an event. Now they've flipped it for that stupid New Era logo and you hardly see the patches at all. It just doesn't have that same magic.
  11. There's been a definite slide into blandness in the broadcast booth the last few years, especially since all the older guys have been retiring. I know that guys with the charisma of a John Madden or Harry Carey are hard to find, but there doesn't seem to be much of an effort to replace them, either.
  12. Man, I remember watching the Cubs on WGN when I was a kid. I was too young to know what drunk was then, but looking back I think there were games when he was blitzed before he even went to the booth. Sports announcers nowadays should be allowed to drink.
  13. I miss announcers that I was fairly certain were drunk during the broadcast.
