Daisuke Matsuzaka’s BP jersey insignia appears to be riding mighty low in his spring training debut yesterday.

    New NCAA Basketball jerseys for several teams??

  • matt | March 3, 2007 at 9:59 am |

    wow I’m number 2!!
    What new NCAA basketball jerseys?

  • EFitch | March 3, 2007 at 10:04 am |

    not a fan of the red glove on the dice man….should look fine with the regular unis

    i actually like the new bp hats but the logo does look low

  • John Loki | March 3, 2007 at 10:07 am |

    Several teams including Florida and Ohio St are going to have new jerseys for the NCAA Tourny.

    I wish UNC Tarheels would come out with a PMS 282 alternate road jersey.

    I think the Red Sox red BP cap is the only one New Era got right this past offseason.

  • Jeff B | March 3, 2007 at 10:53 am |

    Basically, the only bad bp hats are the once where the ear flap is a different color from the cap and or they changed the team logo poorly. I actually don’t mind how some hats have the hat and ear flap the same color with the piping between them a different color. I like how that continues the line from the bill of the cap.

  • Mike | March 3, 2007 at 11:29 am |

    Too much red in that uniform. The hat, the undershirt, and the jersey. Kinda reminds me of those New Jersey Nets alternates, in the sense that the red overwhelms you http://cache.viewima...

    I think it would be cool if the Red Sox went back to their 1970s unis. The ones that you see in the footage of Carlton Fisk hitting the home run against the Yankees http://images.allpos...
    Good hats (Red AND Blue), batting helmets, and stirrups.

    ABA Denver Rockets throwbacks. They’ve worn them a couple times this year. Although wearing them against the current Rockets was a bit strange.

  • Brian from Short Island | March 3, 2007 at 12:04 pm |

    As mentioned before, the winter ball has gone away in the Premiership, replaced by the normal white ball. (look in the left side of the net… That’s the only game with a recap posted at the moment, so It’s the best photo I have seen.

    It also doesnt seem like the Sox employed their red jerseys at the opportune moment.

    Manny Ramirez showed up in camp this week with a pair of Nike football cleats, and I wondered if he’d wear them in a game… turns out the answer is yes. It’ll be interesting to see if they make it to the season since they’re mostly white with black accents…

    In looking at the Manny Ramirez at-bat photo, I tried to find one thing about the way that he dresses and grooms himself that makes him look like a ballplayer instead of a goof. I was only able to find one. At first glance, he batting gloves look to be acceptable. I am so looking forward to the day that he retires.

  • AJ | March 3, 2007 at 1:39 pm |

    Pierre looks great. Now if we could just get him to wear all-black spikes, with no logos on them, he would truly be the modern iteration of an old-time ballplayer.

    Like the Ron Artest pic in the above comment, most designs shaved into the hair look ridiculous. However, Brent Petway with the Winged Helmet shaved in there looks awesome.

    From what I can tell, the White Sox have been wearing the regular season alt. uniforms in all (or at least most) of the spring games, which is something that I can’t recall them ever doing in the past. Maybe somebody really hates the new spring ones?

    I was referring to the actual length of the white sanitary under the stirrups, not the small amount of white that shows through on the bottom of stirrups with low-cut openings.

    In the Juan Pierre photo, you can see the outline of his white sanitary underneath his right stirrup, and it only comes up to the top of his ankle, while the stirrup extends to the knee. I had always assumed that the sanitary ran the length of the stirrup, as indeed it had to back when high-cut stirrups were in fashion.

    Burrill, I saw you at that Dexter-Chelsea game last night. Incredible huh? I know your allegience is to them ‘Dawgs, but us Dreads came out thanks to JB. Any pics of our amazingly large student section? It was impossible to find parking, pretty much everyone from Dexter and Chelsea was there. By the way, you asked if I went to the bball games, and I do, I’m a student, so I’ve only missed a couple all year. How sweet is it to beat your undefeated biggest rival in the last home game of the year? Amazing game.

    Hey all, happy weekend. I was watching the pregame for my beloved BlueJackets and saw an interesting segment on their new goalie Brian Boucher. He was picked up from Chicago and showed up with his Blackhawks helmet. To make it match the uniform, he (or the equipment crew, i missed that part) used red cloth tape to cover up all the Blackhawks graphics (i can’t find a picture of the old mask) and they added two BlueJacket stickers to the side. i will try to find pictures later, bottom line, it is rather weird to see a plain hockey mask.

    Along similar lines, this is from the Boston Globe today:

    “* Joey MacDonald is expecting some new Black-and-Gold equipment next to replace his red-and-white stuff that he’s been wearing since he arrived in Boston. “That helmet,” said MacDonald of his Wing-themed topper, shaking his head. “Got to do something about that. Maybe get a black Sharpie to fill it in.””

    Hey Mark in Cincy, nice to see another CBJ fan on the blog. We’re few and far between. ;-) I saw that segment too, and when they showed an upclose picture of his helmet, the tape almost looked like it was fuzzy (i.e., velvet). It might have been my TV, but it was weird looking anyway. I kinda like the red color; it contrasts with the blue in the jersey, but matches the shorts (mostly). Now, if Berard can only stay out of the sin bin.

The adidas logo was showing right above the 2 stripes. Sorry no pics, I just got back from the game. I’ll look for some later.

    [quote comment=”58285″]Tonight at the Indiana-Penn St. game, IU guard Armon Bassett had 2 red stripes on his socks. Usually he just wears high white socks with an adidas logo on them, but tonight it looked like he had shorter socks with the red stripes over the adidas socks. The adidas logo was showing right above the 2 stripes. Sorry no pics, I just got back from the game. I’ll look for some later.[/quote]

    perhaps it was these?

    [quote comment=”58249″]Burrill, I saw you at that Dexter-Chelsea game last night. Incredible huh? I know your allegience is to them ‘Dawgs, but us Dreads came out thanks to JB. Any pics of our amazingly large student section? It was impossible to find parking, pretty much everyone from Dexter and Chelsea was there. By the way, you asked if I went to the bball games, and I do, I’m a student, so I’ve only missed a couple all year. How sweet is it to beat your undefeated biggest rival in the last home game of the year? Amazing game.[/quote]

    Andrew, it was not a pleasant loss for us, but that was one of the best games I’ve seen. And though I didn’t say this too loudly before the game (but I did say it), I think the loss will be better for us in the playoffs. Heading into the postseason with a 20-0 record would have brought another level of pressure. I know that sounds like attempted justification of the loss, but I had said many times before that they might benefit from a regular-season loss. I just would have preferred it come against someone else. But Benjamin was on, and that made the difference. In any case, it was an amazing game. Our guys might not be able to appreciate it like that right now (understandably), but it was.

    I did get a couple shots of the Black Sea (probably the best name you guys have used this year — Swov’s Soldiers was okay, but Black Sea was far better). I’m hoping to have the pictures up by Sunday evening.

    I had to chuckle when the Black Sea started chanting “overrated.” (I’m not sure that was actually true.) I chuckled a little more when Chelsea’s student section chanted back, “SEC.” That particular student section repartee was funny.

    I found out that the gym’s capacity is 2,400, but that’s assuming 17 inches per person on the benches (ha!). But you know there had to be over 2,000 people there. And that was probably the best atmosphere either team will see. No playoff game can match that atmosphere.

    I’m not sure if I’ll be able to make any of Dexter’s playoff games. I’d like to get to one, but if every game conflicts with Chelsea’s games, that may not work out. We’ll see. My main audience is in Chelsea, so my attention tends to turn there first.

    Okay, everyone who was tuned out can tune back in now.

    Just wondering if anyone knows what was up with Craig Bradshaw (and perhaps other Winthrop Eagles’) jerseys. The Nike-esque accents across the shoulders hit the collar at different heights from the left and right. You could get a clear shot when they were at the FT line, or in this pic: http://www.winthrope...
    They are a fully funded D1 team, why would this be an issue?

    I’ve brought this up before but have never gotten an answer. Brad and Bethel Johnson both play for the Vikings. Brad Johnson has “B. Johnson”, and Bethel simply has “Johnson”. I always though with the same initial the players had to have a full name on the back. Just sayin’.

    I think Petway’s hair would have looked better if he reversed it, made the stripes the hair, and the “base helmet” shaved.

    Watched the UFC pay-per-view tonight. Rich Franklin fought and he has a very interesting color scheme for his trunks…brown and pink! This photo is from his last fight, which the design was a bit different but the brown and pink scheme is still present. I couldn’t find a photo for tonight yet.

    Also saw the Wisconsin-Green Bay – Wright State game tonight. Green Bay coach Tod Kowalczyk hand something written on the back of his hand between his thumb and index finger. it looked like a set of initials, three letters. It was around the 14:00 mark of the first half. I was at a bar, so I couldn’t rewind the DVR or pause it.

    Along the same lines, from 2000 to 2002, the Baltimore Ravens had three players with the last name Lewis on their roster: LB Ray, RB Jamal, and WR/KR Jermaine.

    Ray just wore “R. LEWIS” on his jersey, as he does to this day. But Jamal and Jermaine wore “JA. LEWIS” and “JE. LEWIS” respectively during these years (you can kind of see an example of Jermaine’s “JE” here). When Jermaine left the team after the 2002 season, Jamal switched to “J. LEWIS”. If Jamal is not resigned by the Ravens, Ray will presumably switch to simply “LEWIS” going forward.

    [quote comment=”58288″][quote comment=”58276″]I was at the airport today when I saw someone actually wearing a NY Yankee camo cap. Looked similar to this: butt-ugly, but with drop-shadowing on the NY. The damn thing is even uglier is person than in a picture. I can’t imagine a fan actually wearing one of these proudly.

    Matt, that statement being, “I am a twit who thinks he’s super-fly by wearing this camo cap, but I am really showing how much of a mindless sheep I am for wearing it, and, incidentally, how stupid I look.”

    Didn’t a couple of years ago, a tire company have a basketball player shave it’s tire’s tread pattern into his hair?

    I want to say it was Ricky Davis and the Goodyear Aquatread, but I could be mistaken.

    That low-riding logo on Dice-K’s jersey is further evidence supporting this theory I’ve got going.

    I think that in the early 2000s or so, Majestic decided that the default player height when constructing jerseys should reflect today’s huge players — 6’3″ or so.

    This is particularly evident with the backs of jerseys — the number of inches from the collar to the top of the player number or name has definitely increased.

    Here’s one from 1984, and here’s one from 2006.

    So when a guy under six feet like Matsuzaka wears one of these jerseys, the logo and number get stuffed too far down and it looks ugly.

    It may just be my opinion, but having the logo and number too high up on the taller guys loos a lot better than having it too low on the shorter guys.

    Anyone know if they actually did implement this? For the record, I have a 1991 Cubs game jersey and it’s just shy of six inches from the collar to the top of the numbers.

    “The only team that got its BP cap “right” was the Angels, the only team that doesn’t have that silly “gusset” on the side of its BP cap.”

    The hat you showed is actually an Angela bp cap from last year…i know because i own one….they may be using the same hat again this year contary to all the other teams…but this hate is defeiniely from last yr

    When Dave Brown was the backup QB for the Giants, he had his full name on. Maybe they only do it for short first names?

    (Trying to picture Jan Venegoor of Hesselink having a brother named, say, Jehosophat, and then them joining the NFL…)
