Lost in Translation

bimbo

In every language, there are some words that don’t quite make the leap over the cultural divide. Bimbo would be one of those. In Mexico, Bimbo is the name of a giant food conglomerate that ranks No. 4 globally, behind Unilever, Sara Lee, and Nestlé; in America, bimbo tends toward, well, this.

So as we move into December, and therefore into the “real” holiday season (none of this Christmas stuff hung in October crap), let’s remember the differences that make cultures unique — and that sometimes it’s OK to wear a shirt that says “Bimbo” on it. Just probably not here. — Bryan

    Bimbo is also the title of a song recorded by Gene Autry in the 1950s. No negative connotations here at all … it’s a “nonsense [novelty] song” about a boy named Bimbo, suitable for family listening.

    A reason to celebrate Nike getting out of hockey:

    Ohio State’s ice hockey team wore the nike swift cookie cutter jersey last night. Complete with awkward soccer fit, vertical stripes, shoulder numbers, and that bland standardized nameplate/number font that every single team wore in the last olympics. Though most photos are centered upon U-M players you can see some good photos of the tOSU players if you click “photo gallery” [here]
    It helps me stomach the RBK edge better.
    By the way, The Yost student section serenaded their innovatative look to an “Ugly jerseys!” chant. Which to me is evidence that Joe hockey fan (not just us unicentrics) can look at the sweater and know something isn’t right.

    According to Wikipedia:
    According to the Big 12 Conference’s website, the use of the alternate names “Big Twelve” and “Big XII” are incorrect; the trademarked name of the conference is “Big 12 Conference” (notwithstanding the Roman numeral XII featured on the conference logo)

    Regarding the name “Bimbo”… there was also this male cartoon dog from the Fleischer studios from 1930 through 1933, according to Wikipedia. (He’s next to Betty Boop in the picture.)

    Poor ol’ Bimbo was axed (and Betty was “cleaned up” considerably) by the Production Code censorship laws… couldn’t have a human with a dog for a boyfriend, could we now?

  • denverjason | December 1, 2007 at 11:12 am |

    Wow, another bengals quirk I’ve never noticed before. Not only do their shirts not match, their pants don’t match. Check out the two guys facing left (52 and 94), both have their left legs showing, but their tiger stripes go different direcctions. 52’s go UP to the back, 94’s go DOWN to the back. Also, check out Smith and the guy right in front of him (obscured by 52). Their right legs are visable. Smith’s stripes go up to the front; the other guy’s (and #28 for that matter) go up to the back.
    In this pic Ocho Cinco’s pants match the lineman, but not Palmer’s. Wonder what the reason is.

    i can’t stand Mizzou’s faded yellow pants. they’re one of the few teams that i think look good in all-black. (jax jags being the other) i have no idea who’s even considered the home team tonight.

  • Juan Grande | December 1, 2007 at 11:21 am |

    The Bengals need to give up all stripes except for their helmets. It is just too damn hard to keep th stripes straight. The Chargers can’t keep their bolts running in the same direction either for that matter.

    Let’s all put a petition together for the Redskins to wear multi-striped socks in honor of 21 Sean Taylor.

    I don’t know if Chibb has ever sponsored a team, but the company known as an early player in the computer market did.

    Additionally, Arsenal used to be sponsored by the makers of video gaming systems – which wasn’t a big deal until they travelled to Italy for matches. Apparently, “sega” is a slang term for masturbator in Italian.

    There are also stories of AC Milan being sponsored by Pooh jeans, but I can’t find evidence.

    I completely agree. The old gold Mizzou pants look horrible with either black or white jerseys. White jersey, black pants is their best combo.

    The #1 reason why Nike is getting out of hockey is the same reason they got into it in the first place – Roller blade technology. They thought that roller blades were the wave of the future and bought hockey to acquire skate boot technology. When rollerblades fizzled, there really wasn’t a need to keep a hold of a niche market sports entity. They can still subcontract uniforms and have a swoosh placed on them later. Never has been a problem, can’t see why it would be now.

    Keep your perspective in check. This website is all about athletic AESTHETICS, not simply athletics. Notice how Mr. Lukas was thankful for stirrups on the Mets due to the acquisition of Johnny Estrada. Nowhere did he say anything to the effect of “Too bad Estrada sucks.”

    I didn’t get to watch after the first quarter today, but this is my favorite game of the year for many reasons. Agreed on the military unis in the stands. And aside from the visible swoosh, the football uniforms are pretty clean too.

    I also noticed one of the punters, Navy, I think, wears bicep bands. That’s pretty funny for a punter to be wearing those. He must have borrowed them from the tuba player…(Don’t flame me, all you tuba players out there!!!)

    Georgetown rolled out white alternates for their game against Fairfield, and when you struggle to beat a team when you’re favored by 28, your fans tend to find a lot of things to cast blame on. Like, for instance, those very same uniforms.

    I’m in the “Burn the White Alternates” camp myself. Looks terrible, and white is not one of GU’s colors. Look like a team from the white-uniform era, play like a team from the white -uniform era apparently.

    You know you’re in trouble when your white jersey officially becomes an alternate. Even if G-town hasn’t worn white much recently, that looks much, much better than that gray thing they usually wear, in my opinion.

    The problem as I see it is that Georgetown has always been proud of gray as one of its primary colors. It’s (relatively) rare to have gray as one of the two primary colors–especially compared to the blue that makes up the Hoyas’ road unis. Georgetown has associated with blue and gray since the 1870s, and the uniqueness of the gray home uniforms is what makes fans resistant to change. And yes, when the team was playing its worst basketball in the past 25 years, it was wearing white and light blue uniforms.

    Then again, the real problem was terrible free-throw shooting and an inability for Roy Hibbert to beat the collapsed zone on him, but that’s an argument for a different forum.

    With WV, I meant Gold over Navy would be much better looking than Gold over Gold. I dont much like WV’s uni’s at all.
    And I never said I didnt like OU’s uni’s, I love the classic look, but I said the uniforms contrasts each other. Its not only classic vs modern, but its white over white vs black over black which makes each team stand out more.
    Back in HS, our colors were blue and red, we wore blue over blue at home and either white over red or white over blue on the road. So, yes, I like the monochromatic look with some colors, but usually the helmet color matters too.
    Speaking of HS, we were the Buckskins which we usually shortened to Bucks. As for what a Buckskin is, its like a Pioneer or Mountaineer or at least thats what our mascot costume was. Our logo was just the initials of the school (Conestoga Valley) heres a pic

    Dang it, I was so close. By the way Tennessee always sucks when they wear the orange pants. It’s a fact.[/quote]

    I’ve been waiting for years for the Vols to break out the orange pants. It’s a nice change from this. I’d like to see it at least once a season. It would also be nice to see them worn on the road, instead of this every single away game. But I think we’d all agree that no one wants to see this design again.

    My wife dragged me out to Christmas shop for the past three hours and all that I could do to amuse myself, besides podering the uniform aesthetics within the doors of Victoria”s Secret was to anticipate more of LI Phil’s tomfoolery. But expecting more “Quaker” shenanigans, I was pleasantly surprised by the Tennessee Scholar athlete nugget,

    Good Form!

    All kidding aside Phil…I hope you got a kick out of the Shea Stadium fiasco the other day concerning whether Shea was on Long Isalnd or QUeens. I nearly chimed in posting that it was really an old hangar at Laguardia

    Hawaii has an “ST” sticker on their helmets. For Sean Taylor?

    Also, I love Washington and their purple and gold (sorry Paul) but I hate the shade of gold they have on their pants. Match the helmets, guys.

    Theres a lot of that going around, teams cant seem to match their golds (or dont want to) ie Mizzou, New Orleans Saints, etc… JMU actually changed their helmets to match their uniforms

    PNOB Sighting — 14:35, 3rd quarter of the UW-Hawaii game, I noticed the UW player #28, Roy Lewis, had RY. LEWIS on the back of his jersey, because #81 is Robert Lewis, a tight end. No sign of what Robert’s jersey says.

    I’m pretty sure I saw a Rb. Lewis earlier in this game. There was definitely an Rb. something, I’m pretty sure it was Lewis.

    Since when does Pitt wear golden shoulder stripes on their white jerseys?

    I’m pretty sure the last time Pitt wore white was last year against UConn. No stripes, what’s up with that? Looks like they also got rid of the stripe they had down the side of the ribcage from last year as well.

    The Panthers overhauled the unis this year. They’ve worn white on the road every game except Rutgers, when they wore gold on blue with blue shoulder stripes. The new unis are definitely an upgrade.

    Also, does anyone else think gold/yellow jerseys would look good on white pants, or am I the only one? I think UCF did that today, and they looked pretty good.

    I’m thinking that because of the fact that UT is 0-4 (now 0-5) since 1999 in the Georgia Dome and because they almost lost to Memphis (they won 19-17 I think) the last time they wore the orange pants, perhaps they thought two wrongs make a right. Obviously they were wrong. I think the orange pants would have been better, though, if they had some sort of stripe down the side like the white pants do. Instead they looked like Cheetos.

    I like the idea of the torch patch, but it is not well-executed. It would be better if they didn’t put it on the white background and sew it on there, but I guess it is necessary to make it contrast with the jersey. For those who don’t know, the torch symbolizes the Volunteer maxim: “One that beareth a torch standeth in shadow to give light to others.”

    At least they didn’t look like they were wearing giant tennis balls on their heads like Oregon.
