Finally, Mexico hockey has a website.

Mexicohockey.com

and they have a new logo and new uniforms

you can see the jerseys right here

and of course I sound biased, but I like the design I made for them better :P

although I must admit, these are much better than what they have worn in past years. They did the right thing by making green the primary color rather than red like they had in the past.

say what you want about Mexico having an ice hockey team, but at least they didnt go Swift with thier uniforms

Team Mexico's sweater could have been better, but could have been far worse.

What caught my eye was on the Team Mexico website featuring another team called "Lomas Verdes Falcons" who's uniform is a blatent rip-off of the AHL's Springfield Falcons logo. If they got permission to use it, I didn't see it anywhere.

Ok, a joke and then some relatively serious discussion.

First, please look at this picture:

Why would the Mexican national team ever advertise that a piece of clothing was made in the USA? As a former resident of El Paso, Texas and frequent "border hopper," I'm all too familiar with the migration of textile jobs from the US side to just across the Rio Grande. Sorry, it would just be like China selling plastic toys that are "made in the USA."

As for their design, I hope that their primary wordmark wasn't created in the hopes of being taken seriously. It looks like a souvenier T design that you haggle for on Juarez Avenue. Even with such a bright color scheme, they had an opportunity to use a lot of imagery common to Mexican heritage, most notably the snake/serpent.

I love and respect Mexico and its history. The Aztecs, subsequent Spanish influences, etc. make for an opportunity to do something really innovative. Instead, they look like a souped-up over 40 co-ed softball team.

Because that's put on there by CafePress, which is the site they're using to run the shop.

I would assume Manny Fernandez will start in goal for their national team.

Fernandez is from the west side of Toronto...I don't think just because his last name is "Fernandez" automatically means hes from Mexico or any other South American country

Just a quick straw poll. If this was the Harlem team, how many black jokes would you guys be making instead of Mexican jokes?

Thought so.

That being said, it would be interesting to see precisely how to turn a team bus into a low rider.
