Apparently this fan, seen getting the new Capitals’ logo tattooed on his neck during a draft party at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex, doesn’t agree with Paul about the pointed p or the height of the lower case i in the design. –Vince

    Here’s a gallery of photos from the WNT game against Brazil yesterday. Most of the pics don’t do them justice (or is it injustice?) but you can see the new shirts are pretty shiny. Too bad Andy Gibb is dead. I think he could’ve found himself some new Solid Gold dancers yesterday.

    I didn’t think the socks were too bad although I don’t think the swoosh on the back is necessary. And when paired with some of the player’s shoe choices the combo can be a bit unsightly. There were also a lot of tags sticking out shorts since many player fold over the elastic band (which is gold on the inside). The woman behind me commented that the combo of the dark blue gold and red on the shorts and socks made them look like United Airline stewardesses. All in all, not a very good reaction from the crowd in my section. Although I did see plenty of parents buying the shirts for their kids (even boys) at the souvenir stands.

    What do you guys think about the new Atlanta Bobca…er, I mean…Hawks unis? I really wish they would had done something like the Sonics did a few years ago and taken cues from their old uniform style, which like the Hawks, I thought was a classic look!

    But hey, it doesn’t seem like these teams listen to the fans anymore, anyway…

  • patrick | June 24, 2007 at 11:24 am |

    i think the hawks uniforms are horrible. They have had great uniforms in the past, and a great color scheme IMO, its a shame to see them move away from them.

  • voteprime | June 24, 2007 at 11:29 am |

    Saw a guy yesterday out and about with a new Caps hat on. I stopped him and asked if he had gone to the unveiling (he had). We both expressed our mutual excitement for the new jerseys. But really, I think it was more about our excitement that the old jerseys are gone. He also said that the photos don’t make the jerseys look as red as they truly are. For what it’s worth, his hat was very red.

    Also, the caps have a neat flash opener on their site, showing off the new jersey.

    I think someone said it best yesterday when they said it looked like the Hawks’ new unis came from the Safe Uniform Generator (TM). When I think of the Hawks (not that I ever do), I picture the red-and-gold from Dominique Wilkins’ heyday. They should have gone with something along those lines instead of the 99,000th red/white/blue color scheme in pro sports. It’s not that they’re bad looking, they’re just freakin BORING. (But then, why am I surprised? This is the NBA we’re talking about.)

    Sorry but I am reposting from the bottom of yesterdays comments.
    Even though I always associate the Hawks unis as being predominately red (late 70’s) and later red and yellow (early 80’s and beyond). I have to revaluate after looking through some old basketball cards / photos. It seems like Atlanta has used most of the rainbow in their unis. Consider the Lou Hudson era, baby blue with red and royal blue trim (late 60’s) and the Pete Maravich era lime green and royal blue (early 70’s). My point is change is nothing new for the Hawks. As a matter of fact they began as the Milwaukee Hawks (any idea what those uni colors were ?) who became the St. Louis Hawks (ditto as above ?)and finally the Atlanta Hawks.

  • Michael | June 24, 2007 at 1:09 pm |

    Six photos from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel of Milwaukee Brewers wearing their Bears Negro League throwbacks (I particularly love the black outer pockets on the players backsides).

    The sports page from the Kansas City Star has another photo of the Brewers, and their stories link to photos posted yesterday.

    I wouldn’t worry too much, Tom. The only thing that I have been told is that the Stars were forced to remove the star design from the jersey. Other than that, their logo was ok’d by Reebok for the new jerseys.

    In any case, they’ll look a little different next season. However, it remains to be seen whether they try to do too much.

  • hotspur | June 24, 2007 at 1:38 pm |

    actually the jerseys are supposedly based off of the st louis hawks jerseys, which were red white and blue, but had royal blue instead of navy. Now, one thing that i love about the new jerseys is that we finally get to see ATLANTA on a jersey. Both of our jerseys said hawks last year and maybe even frther back than that. I wish they had completely redone the logo, instead of just changing the colors for the primary, but the secondary logo(the one on the blue jerseys) is nice. Ive never particularly liked the hawks unuiforms, but now i do

  • nybatt | June 24, 2007 at 1:40 pm |

    as the MLB uniform guidelines remain a mess and players continue to wear their pants “business casual” style, SOMETHING has to be done about teams wearing their “high school” sunday alternate solid-color jerseys on the same day.

    the first two games of the astro-ranger series looked more like Arlington High School hosting Houston East.

    today, St. Paul High is visiting Pompano High School somewhere near miami…

    the navy versus black looks terrible! maybe if we’re lucky the next time the mets and marlins meet we will see a color explosion of black vs. black. I remember last season when texas and KC met both teams had their blue HS jerseys on and even with grey vs. white pants it still looked like a bad intra-squad scrimmage.

    as much as some players and uni fans rail against the NFL for its strict guidelines, maybe some oversight by MLB would “dress” things up a bit.

    on a side note, murray chass in today’s NY Times has a short blurb on the disgrace that is the manager smock/fleece look. its the first time I’ve seen it addressed in the mainstream press.

  • TD | June 24, 2007 at 1:52 pm |

    and, on that note, the Blue Jays are in black hosting the Grape-Ape Rockies in purple. Add the green astroturf to the equation and you have perfect bruise colors. Yaaay.

    Depends on which Hurricanes you mean, cause other than “The U” (Hokie here) Carolina got new uniforms as well (even though they just added a stripe for the sake of adding a stripe.)

    The new Hawks uniforms are certainly not bad, but they’re not great, either. They’re so… blasé. The fact that the alternate logo and some of the jersey detailing resembles those of the Charlotte Bobcats just complicates matters.

    One observation that you can’t really see from the pictures is the heathered gray of the Dodgers’ throwbacks. That’s something I’d like to see some team do on their regular unis. It adds some texture and visual interest that isn’t there with the flat gray.

    I watched a part of the Dodgers-Rays’ game on MLB.TV and it was quite visible in the closeups of players.

    Best First-Pitch-Thrower-Outer I ever saw was Willie Mays at the last game at Candlestick. At 68 years old, Dude had his cleats on and fired a heater from the pitching rubber, I think from the wind-up. He raised the bar pretty high for future Thrower-Outers.

    [quote comment=”108028″]re Caps slideshow: what’s with the different left leg logos on the breezers? Three of the four are wearing wordmarks while Clark has a circular logo.

    NHL logo on the back of the right leg? Wha?[/quote]

    The wordmark is on the other 3 guys is just the RBK logo

    I hadn’t seen it before, but that doesn’t mean it’s new….

    I don’t know if that’s new or not. They include some good pictures I hadn’t seen before. Pretty weak that they couldn’t find an actual pic of a ’70s Indians bloodclot uni, though.

    No, it has been linked to before. You know, just one of the hundreds of worst unis lists.

    The Indiana and Kentucky high school basketball all-stars played the second of their annual two-game series. Here are galleries:

    Boys
    Girls

    Both Indiana teams used the same basic template with the main difference being the block letter wordmark on the boys uniforms and the script wordmark on the girls uniforms.

    The Kentucky teams looked pretty plain. The boys looked pretty much like the University of Kentucky men’s team.

    I hope Paul says something about the Royals/Brewers Negro League unis being 100,000% better than the craptastic Civil Rights Game unis the Cards and the Tribe wore…

    …and for the record, the I think the Rays should have wore Tampa Smokers unis…

    Looks like youc an add Duke to the list of schools getting new football uniforms this year (at least according to Eastbay.) Surprisingly, Nike went all minimalist. Kinda look like the pre-black basketball jerseys…

    Duke

    I love that jersey. They definitely should’ve worn it, but I guess because the stadium is technically in St. Pete, they felt like wearing that jersey instead…..

    This is probably too late for anyone to see, but, speaking of tattooes, and the recent column (or note…?) on them, did anyone post a link to this?

    The Rays wore Tampa Tarpons last year and University of Tampa Spartans (Piniella’s school) the year before. It was the St. Pete Saints’ turn.

    Was anyone else reminded of Arizona when they saw the new Hawks jersey? If you just switch the “tlant” to “rizon” no one would be the wiser (aside from us crazies).[/quote]

    Yeah, after awhile. I first thought of the Iowa Hawkeyes’ uni stripes.

    [quote comment=”107964″]I got a new Nebraska New Era cap yesterday, and started to perform surgery on it until I realized it was 100% cotton. I wasn’t sure if cotton would do the same thing wool does when wet. Does anyone know if i should keep going, or just try to break it in naturally? Thanks.[/quote]

    Assuming he hasn’t done anything: I wouldn’t. I did it on my new Royals hat and it’s very…loose up top.
