The NBA is once again doing that thing where they hold preseason games in Europe and have the teams’ uniforms reflect the the city in which they’re playing. So for last night’s Celtics/Raptors game, which was played in Rome, Boston’s jersey insignia reflected the colors of the Italian flag. That same color pattern was also featured on their shorts shamrock and on the Raptors’ side jersey panels. — Paul

    Doesn’t the Ireland flag have the same colors? Or maybe its orange instead of red I don’t know but maybe they could break those unis out for St. Patricks Day.

    Are those jerseys on sale to the public? Cause I know a couple of my nationalistic Italian buddies who would love one more thing with the Italian flag. As a Nets fan I look at our jerseys (shite) and the Celts (golden) and weep.

    i have to admit, i like what the celtics did.
    understated, but cool. i like that they went for the more chill approach.

    also, why are they not playing in ireland? wouldn’t they sell a MILLION t-shirts and jerseys there?

  • Richard Gadsden | October 7, 2007 at 9:59 am |

    Irish flag is green-white-orange; Italian is red-white-green (and yes, the colours of Boston in the pic above are the wrong way around).

  • Gibby | October 7, 2007 at 9:59 am |

    The Raptors are also missing the red side panels/wraparound on their shorts.

    Because Ireland doesn’t have pro-basketball teams to play

  • dm00n | October 7, 2007 at 11:22 am |

    Ah, I guess that is an Alternate Celts jersey (the base part, the numbers and trim in black). To me it doesn’t look like the Boston Celtics. This is such a classic look. Maybe they just wanted to raise alt jersey sales.

    I don’t know if any pic exists of it, but its something my wife and I noticed last night at Coors Field, it was either in the 7th or 8th (8th I think), but someone really needs to tell Charlie Manuel to make sure he zips up his fly before he heads out to the mound for a pitching change. Noticed it for about 2 or 3 seconds on the Jumbotron, couldn’t get to the camera quickly enough myself.

    Is there a reason why LSU uses goal posts with two anchors, rather than the usual single post anchors used by all other fields? Since uniwatch discussed field decoration, I hope this is germane.

  • My Name is Not Earl | October 7, 2007 at 3:44 pm |

    LSU’s double-standard goal posts are a holdover from the old days, when all the posts were like that. LSU runs under the posts at the beginning of each game. For a while (from the mid-80s to the mid-90s), LSU did have the single-standard, yellow posts. But they went back the year they celebrated the 100th year of LSU football and have kept them. When the Saints played a few games at Baton Rouge when the Superdome was unavailable in ’05, the NFL (which unlike the NCAA requires all posts to be of the single-standard variety, and painted yellow) allowed the posts to stay put.

    A few schools have the “old style” posts as well (Florida State and Washington State are two I know of right away)

  • John in Athens | October 7, 2007 at 5:33 pm |

    Enforcer Cam Janssen might have injured his shoulder tonight because of the league’s new Reebok Edge sweaters. His sweater ripped during his two first period fights with Philadelphia’s Jesse Boulerice. That might have helped Boulerice pull Janssen’s jersey over his head in both altercations and win both decisively. Arron Asham also had his sweater tear during his fight with Riley Cote.

    “These new jerseys are supposed to make you faster, but what good are they if they tear that easily,” Mike Rupp said.

    So, it’s not possible that the injury was caused by Boulerice kicking Janssen’s a**? Twice?!

    Unless Boulerice is wearing some kind of SuperEdge jersey, it sounds like wittle Cammy-Wammy’s making excuses for getting beat up.

    Isn’t that nice. I wonder, when they get hired as assistants, does Belichek reach into the bottom of his hamper and toss one of his old sweaters to them?

    As a Bills fan (ugh), I can only imagine that they will be wearing the GORGEOUS throwbacks for tomorrow night’s game.

    “David Justice” is actually another alias. He was off the team by 2001.[/quote]

    that would be really funny, but he was on the 2001 Yankees

    Bills are wearing throwbacks tomorrow night, confirmed.

    I’ve been doing lots of double takes this week, but I just realized that the towels being used by the players are intentionally pink for the whole breast cancer thing. At first, I thought it was the TV that was off, then I thought that they mixed some reds with the whites in the wash. Heh.

    David Justice was a Yankee broadcaster for the YES Network during the 2005 season.

    i gotta disagree on the redskins. i much prefer the throwbacks they wore in 94. that was just a much meaner looking uniform and is very similar to what i wish the chiefs would do. i can’t get into kc’s ketchup-and-mustard.

    At first, I thought it was the TV that was off, then I thought that they mixed some reds with the whites in the wash. Heh.

    The Detroit HD feed for the DET-WAS game started out digital, then at some point in the first quarter switched to HD, then back to digital. Then they went to commercial and came back to a screen that said “Fox Los Angeles, DET-WAS” with some message about who to call if there was a problem with the feed.

    I used to know a girl who worked for CBS in NY and put the CBS football feed on the air, I wish I still knew her to find out the background, it would be interesting to find out what was going on there, but the Fox HD feed was definitely going out wrong. It was also interesting because the normal broadcast and HD signals are out of sync, but it was switching back and forth pretty seamlessly.

    More ribbon trivia – Green Bay’s Mike McCarthy had his on his hat. The officials had a non-branded ribbon on their uniforms, but it looked like a patch.

  • dm00n | October 8, 2007 at 1:52 am |

    (Which also means that Mike Tomlin might not be pro-cancer, but could have been wearing his on the other side of his cap, Green Bay style).

    The Smoking Gun professes not to know why Matt Lawton signed in as “Eleven Fifty”, but we uniform buffs can give them a hint. Except for a brief stint with the Mets in 2001, eleven and fifty are the only two numbers Lawton had ever worn.

    Unless you count 23 and 15. Good detective work, though.

    Stuby, “except for a brief stint with the Mets in 2001” covers the 23, and “had ever worn” means that the 15 that he wore with Seattle came after signing that hotel register in 2005.

    My comment was carefully worded so as to cover these exceptions! ^^;

    I’m digging the Celtic’s international unis, and I like the nod to the old “Boston” shirts they reintroduced (I think) last year.

    I love Uniwatch, but I can’t believe how on it your community is.
