Saturday Open Thread

Very odd scene last night in Phoenix, as the Suns wore their orange alts, which are technically a road uni, so the Lakers wore their home yellows, resulting in a confusingly citrus-themed affair (additional pics here, here, here, and here). Even more oddly, the Suns’ orange/gray color scheme showed up on the opposing coach’s necktie. — Paul

    is the colored uni at home thing catching on in the NBA? charlotte was also wearing a road uni against the bucks last night.

  • muskiejim | November 3, 2007 at 10:07 am |

    Not a big fan of the “SUNS” on the waist band of the shorts. I think it is look big and makes the jersey look too busy.
    I am a fan of the orange unis with the gray, even though it has some problems. Look at how the piping tapers up in the photo of Raja Bell. It makes him look like he is wearing some sort of strange tank top with a sleeveless t-shirt underneath.

    Busy jersey, hell- it makes them look like they’re wearing redneck belt buckles. Yet another dumb, unnecessary gewgaw to stick on today’s uniform. Better than putting it on their ass, I guess.

    The Pacers debuted their new yellow alts last night.

    Miami wore their white jerseys, so it looks like they will primarily be road alts.

    I’ve never liked the Orange Crush Suns alts. Just…too….something. Can’t really put my finger on it.

    But, on an unrelated by still NBA-centric note, I really do like the new Hawks unis. Yeah, they’re kinda “safe.” But, in a world populated by the Nike Kool Aid and the horrors of Oregon football, they’re a nice addition.

    Speaking of Oregon…anyone wanna place bets on which horrific combo they’ll bust out in todays epic clash with Arizona State?

    Did I just say “EPIC CLASH” in regards to an Oregon/Arizona St. football game?? Yeah…I did. And it feels really weird.

    And finally, speaking of that game, I really like Arizona St’s uni for some reason. I can’t really explain why, but I do.

    if gameday is any indication, the ducks will sport the green helmet with the big O…to my knowledge, they still haven’t broken out the yellow lid, although it is a part of their combo-scheme…so perhaps espn is on to something, at least helmetwise

    From yesterday’s ticker: Joe Girardi will wear No. 27 with the Yankees, to symbolize the team’s quest for a 27th championship.
    Personally I hope Girardi never has to worry about this, but I wonder, if the Evil Empire wins a 27th championship will he then change his uni number to 28?

    It’s the gray piping that is a problem for me. Not only is gray a boring color, but there is not enough contrast in tone between the orange and the gray. Just not a good look.

    UCLA Basketball played their first exhibition game of the season yesterday, and we wore our “redesigned” gold ‘C’ uniforms. You can see in the gallery that they just added a blue outline that many people here suggested. I was at the game and it didn’t look terrible.

    While it certainly is unique, I wish they would have stuck to a patch and not change our classic look. It’ll be interesting to see what our road uniforms will look like.

    I didn’t realize the NCAA switched to an adidas ball. Or is that a league-by-league contract? When did the change happen?

  • Stevo | November 3, 2007 at 4:10 pm |

    I think teams choose their own ball suppliers, be it football, basketball, volleyball, etc. As long as they conform to NCAA standards, you can use whatever ball you want in the regular season. Each conference will have their own balls for conference tournaments, then the NCAA will have their own balls for their tournaments.

    Ok, so a few months ago I found a Portugal t-shirt at my local Dick’s here in Missouri, which is kind of a big deal because there are probably like 5 Portuguese people in the Midwest lol

    Yesterday I was wearing the shirt and something seemed off. And I look carefully and I see there’s a typo on my shirt! In portuguese, federation is written federação, but on the shirt it’s written federãçao. I went to the nike store site and the image they have has the typo

    nike typo

    So in reality it’s a little thing, and not that significant, but it’s gonna bug me everytime I wear it now.

    But it’s not like I can blame the poor low-wage worker who made it, it’s not his/her fault, they’re just trying to put food on the table.

    I think its just the contrast against the black. The pants seem to match the numbers pretty closely, and I’m fairly certain that those havent changed.

    Also, it depends on what channel you’re watching. Here in Oregon we have the choice of FSN or CSN (Comcast SportsNet) and FSN’s white balance or hue seems to be off in comparison to CSN. Don’t know what ESPN looks like since that is blacked out here and we’re getting Rutgers\UConn instead.

    I was thinking the same thing. I turned the game on , and it took me a few seconds to figure out who was who.[/quote]
    I was thinking the same thing about the BC/FSU matchup.

    The Oregon combination can be seen here.

    [quote comment=”165357″]The refs in Arizona State-Oregon today had pink whistles.

    Here’s a pic.

    The commentators noted this and said, “You’d assume they are wearing them to support the fight against breast cancer. I hope so, if not, they have some serious issues.”[/quote]
    Aside from the Oregon player’s pants being transparent, it appears as if he has been impaled on the cheerleader’s megaphone.

    I can’t find a photo anywhere, but towards the end of the OU/Texas AM game there was a kick off where one of the A&M players came running on the field with a ripped up jersey. All the ABC guy said was “they needed a single number out there.” I think he means that there was already the number he was wearing out there so he had to put on something with a different number.

    It was an odd situation.

    The Sharks were wearing teal against the Kings in LA tonight.

  • Brendan | November 4, 2007 at 2:59 am |

    And they wore white last night in San Jose. I thought it was just the Sabres that got permission to do this?

  • Brendan | November 4, 2007 at 3:12 am |

    The Islanders also wore white in Uniondale today, and the Stars wore white in Dallas on Friday.

    Those weird pear-colored helmets ca. 2007 Las Vegas Bowl are different from the ones in the model picture (sans Green logo in action). I was at Autzen today for UO-ASU. I didn’t think the Ducks looked terrible, just…weird. The Green + Black + Yellow was a little disconcerting but both teams looked awesome once the sun went down and the lights came on. Is there anything better than college football at night
