If you hate the suns' alt reading 'phx'

Recommended Posts

i present the logical next step from abgreviations...the UNC area code

after teh suns unveiled their PHX oranges, i started thinking about doing this in some way.  logically, the next way to go is the area code...so here we go.  btw that's the Chapel Hill code, so after seeing that i threw this together.

will this be the next fashion trend displayed by America's favorite large-and-in-charge singer Ruben Stoddard?

Putting "PHX" on the Suns' jerseys was a bad idea, but it would be cool for the Heels (not PHX, but rather UNC, unless they already do that).

Nike put "UNC" on the Tar Heels' basketball uniforms a few years ago. They also had "M" on the Michigan uniforms. Michigan kept those for a year I think where UNC kept theirs for 2 years. I didn't like it at all. It's "North Carolina", not "UNC". I've never heard the school called "UNC", it's always "North Carolina" or just "Carolina", just like Michigan is never called "M". While this may work for USC and UCLA, it doesn;t fly with the Tar Heels.

I always hear it as UNC.

Miami has(or maybe had) the U logo on their basketball unis.

You obviously don't live here then. Here in the fabulous Raleigh-Chapel Hill-Durham-Cary-Apex metroplex (okay, I exaggerate slightly), its almost always "UNC" or simply "Carolina."

North Carolina State is almost always just "State."

Duke is almost always never mentioned. :D

New era actually came out with a line of baseball caps using this idea. It has the Cubs logo on the back, and a giant 312 on the front, or the yankee logo on the back and a humongous 718 on the front.

The funniest/scariest thing about that lik to the area code hats is that the Yankees have 2 numbers -718 and 212 - I guess the only thing that changes more often these days than professional sports logos/uniforms are area codes.  A great combo really.  

Too funnny....

Discriminhater has ho's in different area codes :P

Seriously, I thought I've seen everything from you, but now you pull this out.  I have no idea how your thought process works in designing, but you definitely go out on a limb and think differently than the masses.  Props for that, and the jerseys don't look too bad with the area code, actually  :cool:

When Nike made those uniforms for Michigan and North Carolina, it was UNC that only wore then for a year.  Michigan was the team that wore for about three years until I think last year when they went back to the Michigan script.

ya thought you saw everything, mose?  i'm just getting started! :D  

Bucks concept w/area code on shorts

i'd actually done this before the UNC one, but didn't get much in the way of response. cus it's on the back of the shorts, it's not as noticeable.

and well, now that new era stole my idea (j/k, they probably had this idea for a while), you gotta figure majestic's gonna make matching jerseys :P

Just in case anyone forgot what the Carolina uniforms looked like when they just went with the logo...

Anybody think the Rockets wanted to do this with their "R," but were shot down by the League?
