  1. Since we can celebrate him going back to the “right” team (Detroit Tigers) , Alan Trammell in the uniform of the Arizona Diamondbacks:
  2. Can I nominate this for post of the day?No. Let me explain how Post of the Day works - You must be invited to the council of 12. Once then you have to propose a vote by writing a handwritten letter to each member of the Council of 12. The 37 member council meets in a secret location 4 days after the postage date on said letter (not Toronto, I'll tell ya that much). From there they each cast yay or nay votes on the proposed post by placing a photo of the new Blue Jays uniforms (yay) or a photo of the new Tampa Bay Buccaneers uniforms (nay) into a box. Chris Creamer himself reads the votes. If 69% (this is an internet message board) of the vote dictates that said post is worthy of PotD then all 19 keyholders must simultaneously turn their matching keys on a second box where a flashdrive holding the png file of the PotD belt is kept. Then it is up to one of the keyholding members to feel like going through the trouble of responding to said post with the image of the belt. Acheiving Council status is very difficult. One way to assure you'll never be on the council is to nominate lame posts for Post of the Day. Nevermind, this is PotD worthy! Quick question, why is a 37 member council known as the Council of 12? Was it originally just 12 guys, and 15 more were added later or something like that? Wouldn't that make it the council of 27 then? *facepalm* Yes, please excuse my bad math. I wasn't really thinking that all the way through.

  4. I agree. Hate the team, love the uniforms. I' mother same way with the Chicago Blackhawks, or as I like to call them, the [censored] -cago Crap-Hawks. You've gotta love rivalries.
  5. Instead, we saw arguably hockey's version of the 1927 Yankees in the form of the 2001-02 Red Wings.
  6. I really like the jerseys worn by Team USA in the 1996 World Cup of Hockey.
  7. Too bad only one out of those two uniforms were discontinued. You should see a doctor because your hate-boner for the Lightning's jerseys has lasted a lot longer than 4 hours. Seriously, this is like the third post you've made today expressing your dislike of their jerseys. I think I overdosed on Hate-Agra. I've unitentionally been a reverse version on PhantomDreamer today.
  8. Both of these uniforms are the best worn by their respective franchises. Yeah, that's right, I'm saying the Nikefied Broncos are better than the classic orange uniforms. Come at me, haters.
  9. Probably to try to start a rivalry with the Red Wings. We all know that didn't quite pan out though
  10. Orlando pretty much chased him out of town. However, for the sake of “What if?”, I'll just say it' said lot more difficult for Kobe and the Lakers to make it to as many Finals as they did, let alone even win those championships. I'm not sure that Shaq wins many championships in Orlando, because there weren't that many “star” players around him besides Penny Hardaway. I believe egos would clash as well, because both Shaq and Penny considered themselves the “leader” of the team (think Shaq vs. Kobe, just with less media attention. I think eventually Shaq would play for someone besides the Magic, cause it's kinda hard to keep superstar players in a relatively small media market.
  11. Too bad only one out of those two uniforms were discontinued.
  12. This thread has just gotten way better from where it was at.
  13. The Cubs would not have won the Fall Classic in '84. The Tigers steamrolled everyone on their way to the pennant and their fourth World Series championship victory. What if the Detroit Tigers lost to the Cardinals in the 1968 World Series? On the flip side, what if they beat St. Louis in 2006?
  14. Keep up this amazing awesomeness! I think a famous Tiger mascot must've been describing these logos when he was quoted as saying “They're Gr-r-reat"!
  15. Remind me - is that the 1960-1971 road uniform script?Yep, the one they wore just before the switch to pullovers. The uniforms were worn by Tigers stars like Al Kaline, Willie Horton, Jim Northrup, Denny McLain, Bill Freehan, and Mickey Lolich (as well as the rest of the team) during the 1968 World Series. ColorWerx, I love you, in a bro to fellow bro way. You did an amazing job recreating a thing of absolute beauty.
  16. I think we see Steve Yzerman in an Oilers uniform for at least a few years, as he would definitely be the centerpiece of the deal. As a result, I don't think we see the Red Wings dynasty come to form in the late 90s, there's no rivalry with the Avalanche (or at least, one that's as physical as it was), and #19 doesn't hang from the rafters of Joe Louis Arena. I also believe that while Gretzky as a Wing would create some initial excitement in Detroit, the trade would leave a sour taste in the mouth of Red Wings fans. Stevie Y was beloved in Detroit, even during a losing era in Detroit. I think Yzerman does still become the great leader he was meant to be, but this time he has Mark Messier along with him instead of Scotty Bowman. As a result, I don't think Messier leaves for New York, and the Rangers don't win the cup in 1994. Of course, I don't think the Sharks, Panthers, or Coyotes come into existence, as there is little or no interest in those markets. The Mighty Ducks movies may be still filmed and enjoyed by a young hockey fan-base, but the NHL Mighty Ducks play some where other than Anaheim (perhaps Minnesota, after the North Stars move). Winnipeg still moves, but to somewhere else. I think Quebec still moves to Colorado. I'm not sure what the fate of the Whalers would be in Hartford. The NHL doesn't have anywhere near the level of popularity it does today. On a side note, I'm not sure if I'm born, or at least the sports fanatic I am today, as my parents became Red Wings fans in the late 80s and early 90s during the building of Detroit's Cup-winning era. (Sorry for the long post, but this trade had some big consequences)
  17. Donald Sterling divorces Shelly soon thereafter, marries porn star Vanessa Blue Sojourner Truth, and has 6 kids: Roshanda, Uniqua, Umfufu, Eboni, Armani, and Ralph. POTD?
  18. I love thick striping on baseball uniforms.
  19. The jerseys themselves are already posted, but can I please get just the wordmark from this jersey?
  20. That was quite the entertaining read through. I was not expecting that ending.
  21. What if the Montreal Expos were able to move to a new stadium? Do Jeffrey Loria and Bud Selig still screw them over?
