Leftovers for Breakfast

Hockey

Lost in the shuffle of monochromatic college uniforms, no NFL throwbacks, and Dallas Clark’s missing flag decal was the passing of Tom Johnson, a Hall of Fame defenseman for the Bruins and Canadiens. His 30-plus-year career with the Bruins included a stint behind the bench for the team’s last Stanley Cup in 1972.

While his contributions to the game were great, those stripes are pretty sweet, too. So honor the past with a smile and a nod, think about the good old days of Original Six hockey, and go polish off that last helping of mashed potatoes. If you don’t eat them, I will. — Bryan

    wow…that is the most uncurved stick blade i’ve seen…

    is that typical of old time players, or did this guy play/shoot ambidextrously? just seems so quaint and out of place with the twigs the modern players use

  • Philly Bill | November 24, 2007 at 9:09 am |

    All sticks were flat in the early days, but became more curved as the slapshot came into fashion – the curve of the stick provides a bigger “sweet spot” for harder shots.

  • Dave Soline | November 24, 2007 at 9:11 am |

    Stan Mikita did the first curve to a stick. Before that they were straight as an arrow.

  • Jet | November 24, 2007 at 10:02 am |

    Well, the straight blade made for better stickhandling and better backhand shots. There was a period in the late 60’s where the curves became ridiculous, i.e. called “banana blades” and there were a series of rule changes to limit the arc of the curve.

    By that way, even with a few slight modifications throughout the 60’s and early 70’s, that sweater Tom Johnson is wearing is to me the quintessential Bruins jersey. The colors with the wide shoulder bar and contrasting stripe were the meanest thing on ice!

    I was flabbergasted when they removed the shoulder bar designs in the late 70’s.

    That’s why when Boston redesigned their jersey for this year, they almost got it right. They should have returned to the 60’s style with the wide yellow shoulder bar instead of reversing the colors with a wide black shoulder bar.

    That’s also why I hate most of the new hockey jerseys – most are missing two elements that define a classic-looking jersey – contrasting shoulder bars and horizontal waist striping…

    At least the Vols use that creamsicle orange, which is a little easier on the eyes. The “PHX” Suns’ orange is absurd, even when it’s not paired with LA’s gold unis on the court.

    By the way, get ready for a couple more eye-searing matches in Big Ten World when Illinois, who always plays in orange, takes on the likes of Iowa (gold), Michigan (Maize), Indiana (Crimson), and, last but not least, Northwestern (purple!).

    Banana Blade’s Autobiography…Corny but true.

    http://www.hhof.com/...

    Stan Mikita and Bobby Hull took slapshots that dipped and dived, curved and flew faster than anything anyone had even seen before. Players on both teams looked at the shots and were amazed. They were impressed and scared and couldn’t believe the difference in speed and trajectory.

  • ScottyJ in WV | November 24, 2007 at 11:36 am |

    Tell that to Marty McSorley – his illegally-curved stick essentially cost the Kings the Stanley Cup in 1993 (Montreal caught him using it in Game 2, scored on the ensuing power play, and won the Finals going away).

    I believe what Max meant was that the WHA had no limitations on blade curvature during their time of operation – partially because they had Bobby Hull as their original signature star.

    Last player that I know of that played with a straight stick was Ryan Walter – mostly because he thought it was better for faceoffs.

    At Gallaudet University (Div III) Football program we have our offense coordinator wearing red polo and our defense coordinator wears white polo. It is probably because the players could recognize their coach on the sideline while playing on the field.

    Well, GU is the national university for the hearing impaired, so it makes perfect sense for the coaches to wear something where they could be easily identified.

    Missouri wearing the gold pants with the white jerseys. They’ve worn all three pants colors (white, black, gold) on the road (and at least gold and black with the black jerseys). Gold pants look best. Kansas looking a lot like the NYG, as usual.

    Of course, they still lost to the team with far the superior — dare I say, classic — unis.

    Does/Should Uniwatch have some sort of redemtive “uni-winner” concept where the team with the best unis happens to win — especially if they’re the underdog? OK, I’m a UCLA alum and Oregon is an easy shot, but still …

    I haven’t seen Kansas play much, but the typography for the numbers bother me. They’re too rounded to look good in a masculine sport like football. Also, when you use writing as part of your logo (KU) you should try and match the numbers with the helmet (just my opinion)

    I think somebody should buy the area where Kemper Arena is and build a football stadium that straddles the KS/MO border, just for this game. You build it with the field North-South, put Mizzou on the East side of the field and KU on the West side, and build in a narrow gap in the stands right where the border is.

    I was just watching the Border War in HD, and they went to a 4-way split screen of the KU QB, his OC in the booth, the main game action, and KU’s 2 Offensive Signal Callers. Yes, I said that correctly, KU has not one but TWO offensive signal callers, and they appear to be calling the exact same signals at the same time.

  • DCM | November 24, 2007 at 9:49 pm |

    Why did A&M wear grey pants? They did look good, particularly with the normal, narrow stripes, unlike those in tonight’s Clemson/Carolina game.

    I do not like Boston College’s font, though it’s interesting to note that the names are stitched on…you could tell today in the sunlight.

    Clemson’s high white socks are a refreshing change of pace from low whites or black shoes and socks. Their great-looking helmets suffer with all the white tiger-paw stickers on the back…as do Georgia’s.

    I’ve had it!!! Seeing as this is the only place that matters in my plight I am venting my rage. The uniforms in college as a collective suck the king kong balls. Be it Nike, RBK or Addidas I don’t care…they suck. The microstripe on the side is awkward and never seems to maintain a consistent flow with the designed cohesive jersey. I don’t know if these designers think they are creating a nuveau image for college football but this is one fan that is disgusted by the pathetic designs portrayed.

    Classic designs: Alabama, Michigan, Florida, USC, UCLA, Auburn, LSU, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas

    Non-classic designs: Maryland, Missouri, Oregon, Illinois, Kentucky, Clemson

    As you can see they proliferation as infiltrated every damn conference. The sad thing is that most of these teams have had a traditional look at some point in their history. Oregon is the guiltiest party. They have whored their image to nike for more than a decade and it gives an impression of absolute nausea.

    Why do these nikeists feel they have to tie the pant stripe with the jersey? Why do these morons feel the need to tie the pants color with the sock color? I am appauld with the absolute lack of integrity of these schools. My resolve is to boycott these changes and get back to a grass roots imagery.

    I am disgusted by the state of college and pro football these days.

    For years, Bruins were only team in four major sports that wore same jerseys home and away.

    Watching the Butler-Texas Tech bb game from Alaska tonight, I noticed some inconsistencies with Butler’s uniforms.

    Some of the players’ names are vertically arched (Streicher) and others are radially arched (Green). The vertically arched names use a much more condensed font than the radially arched ones.

    [quote comment=”176521″]I’ve had it!!! Seeing as this is the only place that matters in my plight I am venting my rage. The uniforms in college as a collective suck the king kong balls. Be it Nike, RBK or Addidas I don’t care…they suck. The microstripe on the side is awkward and never seems to maintain a consistent flow with the designed cohesive jersey. I don’t know if these designers think they are creating a nuveau image for college football but this is one fan that is disgusted by the pathetic designs portrayed.

    Classic designs: Alabama, Michigan, Florida, USC, UCLA, Auburn, LSU, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas

    Non-classic designs: Maryland, Missouri, Oregon, Illinois, Kentucky, Clemson

    As you can see they proliferation as infiltrated every damn conference. The sad thing is that most of these teams have had a traditional look at some point in their history. Oregon is the guiltiest party. They have whored their image to nike for more than a decade and it gives an impression of absolute nausea.

    Why do these nikeists feel they have to tie the pant stripe with the jersey? Why do these morons feel the need to tie the pants color with the sock color? I am appauld with the absolute lack of integrity of these schools. My resolve is to boycott these changes and get back to a grass roots imagery.

    I am disgusted by the state of college and pro football these days.

    In the pros Arizona, Minnesota, Alanta and Denver should all be ashamed.[/quote]

    Wow! What passion…misguided as it is. Looking like Penn State does not appeal to every player in the country. Schools are trying to recruit kids and kids like new shwag. Don’t think for a minute that new gear and updated facilities don’t sway a kids decision to choose a school.

    [quote comment=”176507″]Oregon almost looked like a college football team today. (Sure, the pants are a nightmare and that black facemask is a bad mismatch, but, compared to previous weeks …)

    Let’s go ahead and give credit where credit is due. Oregon looked pretty good today. The green pants were a nice touch and it brought out the accent in under arm jersey inserts. We harsh on the Ducks all the time, so lets let them have a pass for doing right. Too bad they play like a Jr. High team without Dixon.

    Here’s a weak update on that Derby County player I was talking about that didn’t have a name or number on his back for atleast some of, if not all (I didn’t watch it from the start) of the first half. Every Derby player in the 2nd half had a name and number on his back, so it was corrected at halftime.

    This isn’t a great picture, but you can still see the guy in the background, not to mention it’s the only one I’ve found so far. He’s in white and he’s the guy standing in the background on the right side of the picture. I still have no clue who it is yet, but you can see clear enough in the pic that there’s no name or number there.

    I read that In Sports Illustrated. I would hate to be their radio announcer. “Smith…passes over to Smith…dumps inside to Smith who lays it in!”

    Misguided? For the very reason you just mentioned is why your argument holds only 50% support. There are schools that have such weak visual ID that yeah they have to use that approach. Sad. But there are other schools that don’t use that tactic. Even more there are “kids” that appreciate the classic uniform too. And you’re crazy for thinking every kid wants to look like some kind of rollerderby queen.
