Also, there is more than a bit of homage-paying going on, as I am an anglophile 

 

:blink:

 

😛 

 

Do not give me those faces. A New Yorker can perfectly well be an anglophile. An anglophile is an admiring outsider, such a person could be from anywhere.

here's all you need to know about Tony Packo's.  They serve something they call a Chili Sundae;

That's a "Sundae" with sour cream instead of ice cream, chili sauce instead of chocolate sauce, cheese instead of nuts (I guess), and a cherry tomato.  Read it again, if you don't believe it.

 

I haven't had chili in many years, as I eat very little meat nowadays. But that looks pretty dang good.

I lived in Toledo during the decade of the 90's. Met my wife there, got married there, have nothing but great memories.

 

IMO its not that Tony Packo's is especially bad, it's that (Thanks to M*A*S*H) everybody comes to town thinking its THE place, and that if you're local, you must worship it.  It's kind of like visiting Australia, and wanting to go to Outback Steakhouse. (I mean, maybe. Hell, I've never been to Australia, right?)

 

Anyway,here's all you need to know about Tony Packo's.  They serve something they call a Chili Sundae;

(See, I can take a thread deep into left field, too.)

Dude, that looks like a million dollars

FWIW, M*A*S*H* may, in fact, be the worst thing to ever happen to Toledo. The show made people believe that Tony Packo's hot dogs are good. They are not.

 

Interesting. What's wrong with them? Is there a rival hot dog place that you champion, in the manner of the Philadelphia cheesesteak war between partisans of Geno's and Pat's?

 

With regard to Packo's, @oldschoolvikings pretty much nails it.

Packo's is OK for what it is, but this Toledo native is not of the opinion that Packo's best represents our fine city. Honestly, what Packo's calls a hot dog is much closer to a brat than it is a hot dog. It's not a bad place to eat, it's just that Toledo has quite a few places that are a lot better. That said, I do kinda dig Packo's logo.

My opinion is that Rudy's has the best hot dogs in Toledo with Netty's coming in a close second.

And with that, let's give this thread back to the folks who are here to talk about the new Jets uniforms.

Bruh, what the hell. I just wanna talk about triangle stripes and black outlines like a normal person, not the qualifications it takes to identify as a resident of a city 😂😂

I already saw someone wearing the new black alternate tonight in the crowd during Wrestlemania 35. It didn't look bad at all but I still don't think they should have a black jersey.

This thread was Packojacked!  I like their chili!  GO MUD HENS!

 

Back to the Jets uniforms...

 

I like the green they used.  I'm ok with the black trim, although it wasn't necessary.  The black uniform is awful  The pant and shoulder stripes bother me.  The "New York" on the front wasn't needed.  As someone else mentioned, they are just this side of OK.

That's not really a thing.

Geno's and Pat's are maybe top 5 if I'm feeling generous

Yeah, I know. I've been to Trenton numerous times. My point was that Trenton reminding me a little bit of Toledo was something nice I could say about New Jersey. Full disclosure, the part of Trenton that reminded me a little of Toledo was actually just a strip mall that looked similar to one in Toledo. That was the nicest thing I could say about New Jersey. 

 

Have you been south of Trenton? South Jersey really isn't too bad.

How was the green/black contrast?

So now that we've seen the uniforms, which leak information source was more correct and trusting ?

(At least one of these forms, "theatre", has plenty of currency...)

As someone who has experience in amateur stage-acting, I've had the understanding that "theater" is a building and "theatre" an art form. However, that's just my view, and I make no representations that it represents any grand consensus.

You touch on an important distinction: how the black jersey looks as a normal shirt is a different question to how it looks as part of a game uniform.

 

However, the greater tendency of people to wear black shirts than green shirts might explain the inclusion of the black jersey in the set.

 

(Nothing explains the black pants. The black jersey would be less bad if it were paired with white pants.)

it showed up well (that was gary vaynerchuk (@garyvee on twitter, for those who don't know him) who was wearing it btw. 

 

i would be shocked if they don't eventually go black-green-black. think having green pants would really make the other green elements on the black jersey pop.

Because I have no life on this Monday morning, here are Teal's quotes regarding the unis:

 

10/31 I have news I’m not sharing

12/3 The Jets are changing the shade of green. It’s much lighter.  It’s close to Kelly. Not as bright.

 12/22 Is there a white set, a green set and dare I say it... a black set for 2019. The new shade of green is titled “SPORT GREEN”. 

12/23 No. It's black (asked about if it is anthracite)

12/24 I can fully 110% confirm that there is a black uniform for the 2019 season.

12/26 It’s happening. New logo and black uniform.

12/28 The jacket matches the colour Sport Green more than the practice today billboard. 

 

1/19 The new set doesn't feature Kelly green. 

1/27 There is a white uni, a sport green uni and a black uni. 

 There will be pants in all 3 colours as well. 

 The new logo is not a radical change. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is nothing in there that is obviously wrong, other than the name isn't called Sport Green. I personally wouldn't call the green "much lighter"

glad you brought this up, because i found something over the weekend that was interesting.

 

on nike's website, here's the listing for the jets jerseys:

note what i circled. not stumping for teal for anything, because i don't know the guy from a hole in the wall, but it seems like he was working with, at the very least, some inside information. it also probably shows where he is getting that info (from some link in the retail supply chain).

There's also nothing in there that wasn't pretty easy to guess. Fans clearly wanted lighter green and a return to the 80s look, so it was easy to connect the dots to black being involved.

 

Not saying this discredits anyone, just that I'm not sure it verifies anyone's creds either.
