If you want the jersey that badly, dude, just go to the pro shop already. South Korea’s Seongnam Ilhwa’s Juao Soares da Mota, right, fights for the ball yesterday against Spain’s Racing Santander’ Ayoze Diaz Diaz during their 2007 Peace Cup Korea match in Seongnam, south of Seoul. — Paul

    paul, i just think that diaz wanted to show you the side panels of the other guys jersey.

    Pretty cool how stretchy this jersey material is these days. Back in ye olde times, there probably would’ve been a rip the size of Manhattan in that guy’s kit.

    From the Houston Chronicle…new football uniforms coming for Rice:

    “The Owls will sport new uniforms and helmets this season. Well, at least we can make that assumption considering the old uniforms are being sold in the Rice Stadium parking lot at the farmer’s market. We haven’t received official confirmation on this, but the Owls will be outfitted by a company represented by a swoosh.”

    From yesterday. The Mastercard ad yesterday is for a new promotion. The promotion gives one lucky fan a week with his or her favorite MLB team. Hence the new cap making them a part of the team, and “more than a fan”.

    Here’s one for the Uni Watch research department. My son’s hockey team next season will be wearing pinstriped jerseys, a’la the Yankees. Is there any evidence of any hockey team ever having worn pinstripes as their regular uniform in past? They are being custom made for us by a local athletic supply company.

    Some are making small changes. Others are changing logos and designs. It all depends on what the team wants to do.

    So far, Boston has made the best design changes by going with a retro look, in my opinion.

    San Jose is next, Florida will unveil their jerseys in September, and the rest we’re still waiting on.

    I dunno, that Tulsa jersey was uncomfortably close to our team’s design, and I’d never seen it before. We’re planning on using more traditional two-color block numbers but after looking at that, I don’t think it’ll be as cool as originally hoped.

    It’s the “undershirt” design worn by MLB in the mid-late 1990’s and made by Majestic (Authentic Diamond Collection). It was a grey or white ribbed bottom half, and then the top half and long sleeves were a team color and the turtle neck had the team name in the team’s font. I wish I still had my Cubs (Cubby Blue and gray) and White Sox (Black and gray) that I had in HS. They were great to wear under a jersey to those cold early season games in April.
