Players in the "wrong" uniforms


Recommended Posts

Well, like Milo said, the prime examples are on their third round of reposts. We can't just make people up, so obviously there is going to be many less memorable examples. That only makes logical sense. Unfortunately, people seem to be around here only to rain on others parades. I agree with the guy who posted Johnny Damon in a Rays uni, that is the "wrong" uniform for many people. That fits perfectly in this thread. I mean, if you guys dont like where its gone, why are you still posting in here? Go re-read the first few pages if you're really that into those examples

This thread is for things like Emmitt Smith as a Cardinal or Bobby Hull as a Whaler, not LeBron James as a Cav.

Correct...unfortunately, those and their ilk are on about their third go-round as reposts.

If anyone considers the Royals, A's, Sox, or Yanks to be the "wrong" uniform for Damon, they're seriously misguided.

I personally associate him most with the Yanks, but that's because I'm a Yankees fan and he was here more recently than his tenure with the Sox. Objectively, he's equally associated with the Sox and the Yanks.

Thanks for the guidance newbie :P

Newbie? I've been registered here since July 2007. I'm more of a lurker than a newbie.

Get off your high horse.

Yeah, the whole thing with slamming people for membership dates and post counts is pretty disappointing, especially from members I tend to respect.

:P = kidding around.

Or better yet, I think it's just time to let this thread die.

Until next year when Nick Lidstrom signs a free agent contract with the Florida Panthers. :P

Ha, that reminds me of when I used to troll the MLive Red Wings forum years ago, about how the Wings should/were going to trade Yzerman to Ottawa for a fourth round draft pick.

Also, we pronounce it "Lindstrom", here in Hockeytown. <_<

Maybe to keep this on topic, you should've posted him in an Anaheim, Columbus or Washington uniform.

You should go with how your teachers tell you they're spelled, instead.
