Bruins Pooh Bear Jerseys = Bear Meat

Per the Boston Globe

The Pooh bear is dead.

The Bruins' third sweater, honey gold with the smiley Pooh head centered on the chest, is officially being mothballed.

Beginning Oct. 26, when the Canadiens come to Causeway Street, the Bruins will sport vintage renditions of their spoked-B sweaters, styled after the ones Bobby Orr and his fellow Black-and-Gold swashbucklers wore in the late 1960s. Think: split neckline with string lace. (Bring back a bench-clearing donnybrook and the picture is a Picasso!)

According to Charlie Jacobs, the club's executive vice president, the Bruins intend to wear the black version of the vintage sweaters in all home games against Original Six opponents (Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Detroit, and the Rangers).

``No more third jerseys -- we're going vintage," said Jacobs.

I always liked the jerseys. But if it makes you guys happy, it makes me happy. ^_^

Possibly the worst Bear logo on any major sporting team I've seen.

It had a sort of humbled smile, reminding me of one of those Russian bears on chains.

As for the striping around the waist and sleeves, again, I hated it, and good riddance.

Couldn't agree more, Rob. A smiling bear? Real intimidating there.

Now bring back this psychotic, cold-blooded beast -

One of the very first wave of third jerseys iirc. I don't think there are any left in the league now. Amazing how long it lasted considering the Ducks and Kings thirds debuted that year were never seen again.

Teams using third jerseys that first season (95-96, although not until after the all star game in 96) were Boston, Pittsburgh, Vancouver, Anaheim, and Los Angeles.

Pooh bear makes for a good shoulder logo, but he is not primary logo material. Although he isn't menacing, he is tougher looking than the UCLA bruin. I'll be Yogi Bear could kick his ass.

Those always looked like Charlie Borwn shirts with a really bad iron-on patch.
