A's wearing Home Alt on road since there magical!


The Golden One

Recommended Posts

As everyone knows the A's have the new home Gold Alt's this year. Well the only time they had worn them all year was when Gio Gonzales pitches. Since that starter picks the jersey and he was the only one to do so. That was until last Wednesday. That day Josh Outman chose to wear them and they won. Well the next day was Gio's start so you knew they would wear them that day as he always chooses the alts. Well they won again. So on Friday Graham Godfrey sticks with the gold. All he does is go out and beat Tim Lincecum for his first major league win. (A's #10 starter vs Possible N.L. #1 starter.) Was lowest round pick to ever beat Lincecum. 34th round pick beats pick #10 overall. So on Saturday Guillermo Moscoso would have to pick the Gold. Good thing cause the wins keep coming. Next up Trevor Cahill who has struggled mightily the last month and a half, puts on the Gold for the first time. Winning a 2-1 affair over Matt Cain and finishing off a sweep of the World Champs.

Well know the A's had to go on the road, where green is their alt and gold is just a home alt. Here are the tweets from before the game:

No yellow jerseys tonight, but good chance they’ll fly in by private jet – no joke. When? Well, we know Gio loves the gold tops. #Athletics

Turns out gold jerseys did get packed. #Athletics wearing them as they emerge from clubhouse. They weren’t hanging in lockers earlier!

Or I’m blind and they’ve just come out wearing them. Sneaky #Athletics!

That green cap needs a yellow brim.

I actually think the current road cap compliments the gold jersey well.

I thought it would go great with a hat like this and piping on the pants

I agree as well.

The road greens don't look as good as the home with the athletic-gold alternates, but they still look great and legitimate.

On my high school team we had vegas gold alternate jerseys. Our coach resisted for the longest time and after a losing streak finally relented and let us wear them with the gray pants. It looked ugly as :censored:, but we strung together a winning streak.

Yellow looks much better with the gray pants than our gold jerseys did.
