Players in the "wrong" uniforms


Recommended Posts

I couldn't agree more with anyone who says Namath is among the most overrated of all time.

That being said, he's still Broadway Joe.

He legitimized the AFL in the eyes of America. It's on the short list of greatest upsets of all time. Jets 16 Colts 7.

That's the kind of thing legends are made of...

Nolan Ryan as anything except a Astros uniform. Esp. seeing him retire as a Ranger. Freakin' Dallas.

Wrong. Dead wrong. Ryan had 4 out of his 7 no-hitters with the Angels, in 8 years. I'd hardly consider that as being in the wrong uniform... unless those Astros rainbow uniforms burned the image in your retinas.

And that's the funny thing, isn't it? I sat in the stands and saw Hank Aaron at the plate wearing Brewer blue and gold, so that's how I'll always think of him. Depends on your perspective.

Back to Favre photoshop jobs, Sporting News put up these covers for those who like their video games to be au courant. Print 'em up and apply to your snap case:

True, but Ryan is really involved with the Astros organization. He consults with pitchers, owns the AAA Round Rock Express & the AA Corpus Christi Hooks, the Nolan Ryan Expressway is nearby, and he sponsers the radio broadcast with his "Nolan Ryan's Tender Aged Beef" (man, that always gets me to giggle).

To me, the man's an Astro. I'll forgive him for two-timing us with that city that shall not be named.

Is that honestly the best photoshop job that the Sporting News can do? That couldn't have taken them more than a minute...

If he is so involved with the Astros then why is he the Rangers President?

I might be the only one, but I'm not really sure I can say Nolan belongs to any one team since he's had some pretty stellar performances at them all. He should have a white jersey and wear the logos of the teams like military medals.
