New Phoenix Suns Uniforms

Another reason to love the Brewers' current look. :D

Seriously, though, they totally get it right.

Wow, I wasn't aware that any major league team had Polish uniforms but I follow only the NBA (we've got no idea about baseball in Europe but we do love beer). Have there been other teams that had Polish uniforms?

Nope, just the brewers. they worn a million foreign language jerseys

Here's why I'm for translating the names:

They keep English names because it's a foreign team...for their teams, they use the native language.

So teams translating the names makes them feel authentically "their" team.

What about the fact that it's not even remotely interesting if the names aren't translated.

I doubt it has anything to do with grammatical rules of translation. It probably means the NBA is more interested in preserving the "intergrity" of their team name by leaving it in English and just adding "Los", even though it practically defeats the point of the promotion.

Well I think a lot of times Mexican commentators refer to most teams in English but add Los when they say it. Not all, by most. So it's not necessarily lazy. And I would think most Hispanic fans would associate the teams with their English names.

Spanish first, then German, Italian and now Polish.

I'm holding out for Gallic next season, work to complete the summer festivals. Or maybe Japanese.

The "los" thing (Los Bulls vs. El Heat for example) oozes branding- which guarantees that it is a soulless corporate activity. In contrast with what the Brewers do with their ethnic jerseys, or when the Giants break out the Gigantes jerseys- which just feel fun.

Maybe the Padres should do an "English" night and put either Saint Diego or Fathers on their jerseys.

Do you realize how quickly the white people behind that idea would be called out for racism?

Think of all the white protestants in San Diego who feel disconnected from the team since they aren't Catholic nor do they speak Spanish.

The Padres are supposed to have a promotion later this season called "English Night". This jersey set leaked from their media department.

That's what happens when a tease drags on too long...

Exactly.

I blame Sarver, this tease-drag-it-out-for-as-long-as-possible is wearing me thin.

Thus the Anchorman quotes. :)

Back to the Suns. I think the schedules come out this week. I'm sure they're gonna want to market their jerseys during ticket sales, no?
