Saturday Open Thread

Skate America Figure Skating

Why figure skating today? Because there’s little to no chance you’ll find appropriate Halloween costumes in any other sports this weekend. Have fun, be safe, and remember, striped socks go with everything. —Vince

    Rutgers in all black unis with Red Helmets. Looks a little weird.

    You know what’s blinding? Fresno State in all red.

    NY Times has an article on new helmet to alleviate head injuries: the Xenith X1.

  • JJC | October 27, 2007 at 12:12 pm |

    At least the helmets match Fresno State. Rutgers should have gone with a black helmet. Speaking of helmets, I wonder what gettup Nike U (Oregon) will be wearing today. Any bets?

    Yeah it does.

    But, they can lose to WVU in black on black just as easily as they can any other uni-combo.

  • Minna H. | October 27, 2007 at 12:43 pm |

    I love the Rutgers’ all-black duds, but when the announcer said, “You know if they’re wearing all black, it’s a big game!”, I nearly lost it. How the hell did he make that connection? If you can’t say anything intelligent, don’t say anything at all. That would leave us in complete silence (except for the stadium noise), which I wouldn’t mind.

    I like the scarlet helmets (in keeping with their name), but I hope they keep the black unis. The numbers on the back of their jerseys are too big, but their font is ten times better than WVU’s.

    Go Black Knights!

  • Lutter | October 27, 2007 at 12:52 pm |

    Going to game 3 tonight. The best thing about that is I don’t have to listen to Buck and McCarver totally ruin the game by talking their usual crap. I also don’t have to listen to them suck off the Red Sox.
    Are the Red Sox the new Yankees? I think so.

    Not only is it advertising, but it’s a fundraiser for the schools. Allstate pays them $100 for every extra point and $300 for every field goal kicked into the nets throughout the year. Of course, that doesn’t excuse the fact that they are horribly annoying.

    For me logo creep is logo placement designed to be more subtle, like the swoosh on a Nike jersey. It’s the uni equivalent of product placement, it’s there but it’s not blatent (unless we’re talking about the scene in Wayne’s World, but that’s comedy). The Allstate Good Hands net is, in my eyes, the same as Budweiser buying the rooftop space across Sheffield Avenue.

    As they do every time the Florida-Georgia game is aired, they showed the 92-yard pass from Buck Belue to Lindsay Scott that got Georgia the win in ’80. As many times as I’ve seen that play, I never noticed until now that Scott was wearing one of those practice jersey-looking things that quite a few Georgia players seemed to wear during the late ’70s and early ’80s (no trim on the sleeves, no name on his back) when he made his legendary catch.

    Clemson breaks out the purple pants once or twice or three times a season. They mix & match orange, white, and purple jerseys and pants. Just stating the facts, though I think they should stick to the all-whites.

    UGA’s Lindsay Scott was wearing what was called a tear-away jersey, since outlawed.

  • KU Student | October 27, 2007 at 7:26 pm |

    Rutgers has never worn primarily black football jerseys in the history of the program. However, unlike some teams, Florida State for one, black has always been a secondary color (along with white) to go with the dominant red. They have in recent years had an alternate black basketball uniform. Black would be the obvious choice for a 3rd color jersey for any of their teams.

  • DCM | October 27, 2007 at 7:28 pm |

    Just imagine how cool it would look (yes haters, I said “cool” when referring to purple) if they all decided to use the same shade of purple.

    Kansas HC Mark Mangino appears to be wearing a velour sweatsuit jacket tonight at Texas A&M. That’s a lot of dead car seats.

    The Texas Longhorns have a little christmas tree like decal on the back of their helmets. Does anyone know what this is? GBR

    Is it just my eyes, or does the Republic Plaza’s lighting job look like a subliminal ad for Coors Light?[/quote]

    Ehh…opposite direction and one too many peaks. As much as I am in favor of pointing out shameful logo creeps, this just seems like a reference the the Rocky Mountains. Maybe they can turn that into a primo cap logo in the future.[/quote]

    I thought the same thing. Looks just like Coors, but looks different enough to get away with it.

    Does the B on Mike Lowell’s batting helmet appear to be off-centered or tilted?
    I don’t have the ability to screen capture this, but it doesn’t look even/straight.

  • scott | October 27, 2007 at 9:36 pm |

    Did people already comment on the new Lancaster JetHawks logo and uniforms?:

    Seems like it was motivated to tie the team closer to Boston’s color scheme, much like the Portland Sea Dogs did a couple of years ago.

    Can’t say I much like baseball caps without any letter to identify the home city.

    Not only did Dice-K just get a hit and 2 RBI, he’s wearing his jacket on 1st base

  • Benjamin | October 27, 2007 at 9:37 pm |

    I was just about to comment about Lowell’s B. It is totally low and to his right.

  • marc | October 27, 2007 at 9:38 pm |

    can you even wear a jacket on first over your jersey?

    Dice-K’s B is a little low too, but more-centered than Lowell’s. I have been away for a while. Did anyone notice that Terry Francona was wearing the road jersey under his smock for the games at Boston and that Jonny Papplebum is wearing last year’s hat with the gray underbill?

    I know it’s technically not uniforms, but is it normal for Arizona State to paint the numbers on the 50 yard line maroon, while the other numbers are white?

  • Mike Engle | October 27, 2007 at 11:49 pm |

    No pictures, just an eyewitness (me), but Manny Ramirez and Jason Varitek both had World Series logos on the necks of their mock turtlenecks, centered with nothing else. Most of the other players had a Red Sox word-mark with the batter logo instead.

  • Stuby | October 28, 2007 at 12:18 am |

    Every time I see Manny Ramirez, he looks more like dirtbag.

    I read most of the remarks on Fark.com or whatever it is. Some people don’t Get it (TM) and never will. Which is fine with me, we don’t want them.

    PS. Reading those remarks about Paul mad me a little mad. Anyone else. I’m not sure why but it felt that they were attacking me.

    Sorry gang, about the post that I guess I started. Anyway, I was working, so I had to have cap locks on. For some stupid reason, they make us type everything that way at work, I have no idea why. stupid I know. The worst part is when I type normal, I can’t remember to cap anthing that needs to be, I’m used to it being there already, LOL.
    As for the comment, I was just in a hurry telling someone to rewatch the game to get the grab of the great play that DB made, that’s all. We have these things pop up all the time on here, and I was just trying to make a point that it was paint. It was kind of rude, wasn’t meant that way.

  • Alan | October 28, 2007 at 4:58 am |

    Actually I’m the one should apologize…just felt like you were telling the poster to “watch again” before posting…i now understand what you were saying (BuckeyeMike) and it was totally my fault…I didnt mean to cause such an uproar with my 1st post ever…good luck to your Buckeyes (i think) beating the Oregon Nike Ducks for the National Championship :)…and yes, i may sometimes have questions but I def “get it”…

    Green with a square head. Friggin’ bolts sticking out of his neck. On ice skates. Hopefully, this clears up that he was NOT dressed up as Gene Wilder in a lab coat.

  • DCM | October 28, 2007 at 8:58 am |

    You used to see lots of pitchers wear jackets while running the bases, sometimes even in the summer heat. These days it’s rare to see an AL pitcher run the bases. You see it much more in the NL.

    I did a double take as well when I saw Dice K wearing a jacket, then it came back to me.

    Not only is it advertising, but it’s a fundraiser for the schools. Allstate pays them $100 for every extra point and $300 for every field goal kicked into the nets throughout the year. Of course, that doesn’t excuse the fact that they are horribly annoying.[/quote]
    Well, if the fundraising goes to something worthwhile and not the already bloated athletic dept. budget then that’s a-ok in my book.

    (i was unaware it was a ‘fundraising’ tool)[/quote]

    Yep, the money goes into the general scholarship funds.[/quote]

    I’d be a lot happier of Allstate paid more money to people who got screwed after Katrina. I was a little surprised to see the ad on the nets during an LSU game considering many Louisiana residents are suing Allstate.[/quote]
    screwed? they were the morons living below the water level in an area that gets hurricanes.
