Your Noggin Has an Odd Geometric Shape, Like an Object Used to Demarcate the Boundaries for a Flag Football Sporting Contest

23182435

By Vince Grzegorek

There’s a lot of down time in baseball, whether you’re in the dugout or the bullpen, and ballplayers inevitably find ways to amuse themselves. While this often involves practical jokes among players, there are other times when the hijinks are done to amuse fans as well as teammates.

That’s why I wasn’t surprised when Jeremy Brahm sent me this pic of Hichori Morimoto’s Muitai from the first Japanese All-Star game (here’s another view). What struck me was that the day before, while I was at the Western Reserve Historical Society, Scott Longert had told me a story of former Indian Ron Pruitt wearing a conehead for the National Anthem during a game in the ’80s. If there was a conehead in Cleveland two decades ago, and one far away in Japan today, might there be more to be found?

Of course there were. In fact, the famous 1970s Saturday Night Live skit has provided the impetus for many a ballplayer (and fan) to don the conical headgear. Here’s a partial rundown:

  • The most obvious example, of course, are the fans of David Cone who show up to the ballpark with coneheads.
  • Former Mariners reliever Bill Caudill used to wear a conehead while sitting in the bullpen during games.
  • Former Astros relievers Larry Anderson, Dave Smith, and Charlie Kerfeld (scroll down to “Coneheads”) used to all wear coneheads during games in the 80s while sitting in the bullpen.
  • Players and fans of the St. Paul Saints once donned coneheads on Conehead Night (middle of article) inspired by team co-owner Bill Murray (near end of article).

Here’s to hoping that “Mango” doesn’t take off in the same way.

Uni Watch News Ticker: After Jonathan Smith was waived by the Patriots, we finally have the answer to the question, “What number will Randy Moss wear this season?” #81 (thanks to Jeff Israel, who can wear whatever number he wants)… Starting this season, the men’s football and basketball teams of Kansas will have uniforms that have the same official font as the university (Trajan). Other uniforms will be replaced with the correct font as they wear out (a very normal font thanks to Scott Johhnson)… Scott also noted that South Dakota State University will have new Nike football uniforms starting this year… A couple of people mentioned that Temple will have new football uniforms as well this season (check out the photo gallery for the totally bitchin’ helmets)… Joe Bonneau passed on this gallery from The Smoking Gun featuring mugshots of people wearing jerseys and other sports paraphernalia… Reprinted from yesterday’s comments section, “The 10 Most Expensive Sports Collectibles” list on Forbes has some cool uniform and equipment related items… I was at the Fausto vs. Beckett, Indians vs. Red Sox game and was glad to see that Fausto continues to leave the stickers on the underbrim of his hat. … Breaking News!: Despite being listed as merely “Questionable” for today’s blog, Paul Lukas is sufficiently recovered from his vacation to check in with a brief report (see below). Try to act like you remember who he is.

Home Sweet Uni Watch: Thanks, Vince. I’m back, kids, so straighten up and stop shooting spitballs behind the substitute teacher’s back. It was good to get away but it’s even better to be back on terra Brooklyna, so please join me in thanking Vince for minding the store in my absence. Thanks also to Joe Hilseberg, Mark Mihalik, and Eriq Jaffe, whose excellent pinch-hit contributions helped keep things interesting while I was on the road, and to all the great people I met earlier this week in Toronto (full report to follow next week). Bonus thanks to Uni Watch mascots Tucker and Caitlin for the warm welcome upon my return.

Although I stayed true to my goal of not checking out the site even once while I was away, Uni Watch was nonetheless close to my heart for most of the past week. While rummaging through a thrift store in the rural Midwest last Saturday, for example, I came across this poster, featuring a ton of uni-related items, which of course I felt obligated to document. Check it out: There’s an early full-face helmet; an early uniform; Tom Dempsey’s shoe; anniversary patches for the Seahawks, Steelers, Broncos, Lions, AFL and NFL; the Broncos’ vertically striped stirrups; and Bob Griese’s eyeglasses. There was also this Seahawks poster, featuring a good shot of the Native American imagery that the team’s identity is based on.

Scott and I kept processing membership orders while I was away, incidentally. If you haven’t checked out the membership design gallery lately, take a look — there’s some interesting stuff in there, including our first three unnumbered designs (representing the 1928 Detroit Tigers, Augusta National caddies, and Minnesota Twins bat boys). Remember, if you sign up by next Tuesday, you’ll have a “Charter Member” seal added to your card when you renew next year, whoop-whoop.

The most interesting uni-related communiqué I received during my getaway came from an ESPN reader named Joshua Lanning, who pointed me toward this photo and wondered if Denny Mac was wearing a plastic trash bag for an undershirt or what. McLain was frequently photographed doing the windbreaker-as-undershirt thing, but that doesn’t appear to be what he was wearing in that cover shot. Reminds me of that NFL lineman who tried to lose weight during training camp by putting on a rubber suit and then driving around with his car’s heat on full blast — and then passing out. Can’t recall who this was, unfortunately. Little help..?

Getting back to McLain: He was (and apparently still is) a first-class scumbag, but no amount of Mob connections, bad checks, pension-fund raids, or jail time can change the fact that the dude totally knew how to wear stirrups (further evidence here, here, here, here, and here). He was also, of course, a musical genius. Perhaps a pardon is in order?

    So, with thanks to whoever provided the custom stirrups website, I went and ‘shopped some images as a base idea. I’ve checked the rules, and I think stirrups are legal for fencing. Hopefully I can fund these.

    Let me know what you think, Uni Watch.

    If people want a UniWatch rolodex, I’m trying to look buisy here at work the next few days. I wouldn’t be against you e-mailing me you info and I can put it into an Excel sheet and later send it to Paul and maybe he’d be kind enough to post it as a link.

    I would say give me three pieces of information;
    Name
    Screen name
    E-mail

    If this sounds like something people would like, send me an e-mail at jpdren99@smumn.edu. Please put in the subject UNI WATCH.

    Since not every person has time today, I’d say I’ll collect information till Wed. of next week then get the list to Paul no later than Friday.

    Is this something we could do Paul? If we can’t have it as a link here, I’ll still compile the list, then send it back to everyone who responds.

    Since we can now get caddie membership cards, can we get one like Steve Williams’ (Tiger’s caddie), where I get to rip off the outer shell and display my Valvoline sponsorship on the 18th green? Once he takes off the caddie vest h is no longer a caddy and therefore his helping Tiger, even if only handing him a putter ot=r tending a flag, should mean that Tiger must forfeit every tournament that Steve did this.

    A few other possibilities (with varying levels of seriousness):
    – as a commenter noted the other day, the football jersey wearers could have all been taken in a Denver area jurisdiction given the identical background for those shots;
    – those wearing Raider jerseys weren’t taken alive;
    – those wearing Raider jerseys had the Medusa effect on the camera;
    – those wearing Raider jerseys skipped the mug shot process entirely; or
    – those wearing Raider jerseys were bailed out by Al Davis before a mug shot was taken.

    I like the T logo too, but the retro look to those uniforms is really sweet. I think they’re great. A throwback to the Joe Kleko era, Temple’s golden age, such as it was.

  • Mark in Shiga | July 27, 2007 at 10:36 am |

    The colors and font on those Argos jerseys look great, but what’s with all the little logo patches? They’re shoving the number down on to the guys’ stomachs and it looks really off-balance. Particularly #87 — if his torso were a few inches shorter, the number would tucked into his pants. Ditch those logo patches and you’ve got a great jersey.

    Once more than one person sends a tip, I (and Paul does too) generally just say “a couple of people”. In fact, after I wrote the ticker last night, 7 more people emailed about the Temple uni’s.

    Saw it yesterday afternoon and was very pleased. I’d give it a 7.5/10. Don’t want to give any jokes away but the movie starts of really strong, tails off a bit in the middle and picks up again.

    For a show that hasnt been consistently funny in many years I was really impressed with what they did.

    Nice work, DenverGregg. Many of those possibilities could be very correct. Just remember not to wear your Donkeys jersey at the Oakland Coliseum.

    At the risk of repeating myself, I’ll explain my Joe Klecko comment. In the 1970’s Temple went 60-30-2, not a bad record by any stretch of the imagination. In 1977 they went 10-2, and won their only bowl. During the decade they lost to Penn State twice by only one point, and only by 3 in 78 when PSU had an undefeated regular season and played for the National Title.

    These new uniforms are very similar to what they wore during that era. It is there way of saying there was a time when Temple football was not a total joke, and that time can come again. That is the reason for the modifications, they have some history, and they are trying to channel it.

    I would say give me three pieces of information;
    Name
    Screen name
    E-mail

    If this sounds like something people would like, send me an e-mail at jpdren99@smumn.edu. Please put in the subject UNI WATCH.

    Since not every person has time today, I’d say I’ll collect information till Wed. of next week then get the list to Paul no later than Friday.

    Is this something we could do Paul? If we can’t have it as a link here, I’ll still compile the list, then send it back to everyone who responds.[/quote]

    Joe Drennan – thanks again for doing this! One more category idea: favorite team perhaps? And no one should put “I have 3 favorite teams”. If you can’t decide, use this litmus test: which team winning their respective championship would bring you the most happiness? With that, I have to say the Dodgers win out over the TCU Horned Frogs.

  • Joe Drennan | July 27, 2007 at 2:53 pm |

    I’m going to simply stick to contact information. I think with the Membership Cards we can find the favorite team info that way, or use the contact list to ask somebody their favorite team.

    So the categories I have on the list are;
    Name on Uni Watch
    Real Name
    Occupation
    E-mail
    Location
    personal website/blog

    Thanks to the 21 people who’ve already gotten me their info.

    I was shopping at the Target the other night and noticed the new UpperDeck baseball cards on the shelf. I used to collect hard core, now I just pick up a pack or two to see what the designs look like and hope for a Cub or two.

    Designs for UD Series 2? Nothing great…but the photos caught my eye. Series 2 sets usually have shots from spring training that the Series 1 sets (which come out before or near opening day) don’t have. Needless to say the number of shots with the ear tabbed New Era batting practice hats were numerous. Bleh. BP jerseys were pretty common too. Oh well. The Joe Mauer card was nice. He’s sporting his old school Twins batting helmet. There’s a gallery of all the cards on UD’s website.

    Attempting…link…now.

    They’re made for big dudes who wear shoulder pads. When worn on regular guys, they just make us look shiny and fat. Remember that dudes. When chicks see us in pro-style jerseys, they think we look shiny and fat.

    Shiny and fat.[/quote]

    If you must wear a jersey (and your not playing,) I suggest wearing a youth L or XL. Or get the damn thing tailored.

    Also, jerseys in frames look friggin stupid.[/quote]

    In my basement bar I have jerseys framed that I played in. I have done this from high school, all-star, college, and minor league teams. Everyone that has ever seen the display loves it. I don’t think it is stupid either. I am now a teaher and coach and the players get a lot of drive from seeing the jerseys that their coach use to wear.[/quote]

    Good thing I am a teacher so I can go back and correct my spelling. teaher = teacher

    The lineman who wore the fat suit to lose weight (well, the one you mentioned) was, I believe, “Big Daddy” Lipscomb of the Baltimore Colts, back in the 1950s or 1960s.
