Hong Kong Nights: The Ballad Of Maria Sharapova

Tennis

Alternate title: “It must have been kinda cold because Maria — and others — were wearing long sleeves and knickers (ending just past the knee, but too short to be capri-length) under their tennis skirts.” Haven’t seen that before.  

But while it was chilly in Hong Kong on Friday, an obnoxious front was moving through India, courtesy of these guys. It’s still, however, slightly better than this, retro or otherwise … says the guy who’s going to put on tight shorts and go ride his bike for three hours … — Bryan

    holy christ you got this post up early bry…(it’s 1:25 am as i type this)

    good to see some tennis

    i been kinda-sorta following the tennis, gettin a tad pumped for the oz open next week…the women have all been wearing long stuff all week (well the one’s playing north of the tropic of cancer at least)

    elena venus anna maria

    fine…it must be cold…but serena is wearing long sleeves in AUSTRALIA! i don’t know the temp, but it’s usually pretty warm down under these days…

    so…

    im guessing the long sleeves are part of the “new” tennis dress, for the women at least, for ’08

    great…way to ruin it

  • Stuby | January 5, 2008 at 8:14 am |

    Doesn’t look like Maria is dressed for an athletic event at all…what is that anyway, suede?

    So it does, but some genius at Nike decided to enlarge the design roughly by a factor of two. I guess they figured that was was big and ugly enough for the 80s (?) wasn’t quite big and ugly enough for the new millennium.

    His wife, Steffi Graf, is a longtime Adidas billboard, so Agassi switched so his children’s clothing (Nike or Adidas) would be a moot point.

    Re-sent from yesterday’s comments: (Serves me right for missing UniWatch and doing work instead!)

    Mike Engle said re: Kansas’ red jerseys in the Orange bowl: I always thought red Kansas jerseys had a bit of bad karma to them. Who wants to conjure up memories of Bleeding Kansas?

    Why, Mizzou fans, of course! (Yes, this shirt is in terrible taste, and the University stopped their sale ASAP, as they should have.)

    On a related note, I remain firmly convinced that my Tigers “jinxed” themselves against Oklahoma in the Big XII title game when they went monochrome… the Tigers wore their gold pants in their wins at Kansas and in the Cotton Bowl against Arkansas

    Serves me right for “skipping” UniWatch Friday… only to find out I instigated the lead story! Great memories!

    I bumped this up from yesterday’s comments for Paul and all purple-haters to see!

    [quote comment=”198244″]Paul, I know this against your beliefs, but I will now and forever be a supporter of purple. Here’s why:

    My school Prairie View A&M (the one with the 80 game losing streak in the ’90s) ditched purple home unis about 3 years ago (and somehow ditched white aways as well…) So for my first 2 years of college I was forced to see them in these and these. We switched to these and these this year and posted our first winning season since 1976, and our best record since 1964. I think I appreciate purple now.[/quote]

  • Pete (UK) | January 5, 2008 at 3:31 pm |

    OK, so I jsut looked it up – apparently Villa adopted Choclate and Sky in 1886, which changed to Clarest and Sky at some point in the 1890s. In 1899 a Villa player settled a bet with the father of a West Ham player by giving him a full set of Villa’s uniforms which he had been given to wash – reporting them missing. Wikipedia.

    I missed the post yesterday, but in reading through the comments, and seeing today’s post about the Agassi throwback look, I’ve come to the conclusion that the 80s and 90s were dead years in Uni fashion. I think in normal fashion, too. I hope that we don’t return to the garish designs, and we stay classic, like many teams have already done. We have seen numerous examples of teams ditching the Nike template and going back to an old, traditional design.

    I don’t care for them too much. I find them to be a bit busy with the shoulder patch, word mark, and logo. I think they would be a bit better if it was just the work mark (plus a number perhaps) or the logo. That being said, I love their colors.

    The Seahawks’ neon gloves are interesting too. I don’t hate the neon green if for any other reason that it is unique in the NFL.

    On a side note from Paul’s memorial patch article the other day… the initials of the Tom and Jean Yawkey are listed, in Morse Code mind you, vertically on the edges of the manual scoreboard on the Green Monster at Fenway. That is an example of a stadium memorial!

    There definitely used to be a Neon Green piping on the Seahawks jerseys which is where it’s use on accessories comes from. AS for the Socka, I’m sure I read somewhere that the long team colour sock with a short white oversock is now NFL regulation, which I think is pretty poor, plus the idea of fining players for where the white one comes to seems very stupid, and unevenly applied – I noticed that infraction a lot on the Titans team last week.

    WANTED – MLB Dot Sleeve Undershirts

    I’m looking for a Nike black and orange dot sleeve undershirt from the 2006 MLB baseball season to add to my collection. Please reply if you know where one in this color scheme can be found. See example of the style http://sportsillustr...

    I’m late to the party, since they are more than a year old and nearly impossible to find, but the black and orange (Orioles /Astros/Giants) will match the uniform for my adult weekend league baseball team.

    Regarding this particular style, I think it’s sharp without being overbearing or over designed. Unlike the Nike Tri Bolt design or asymmetric design compression shirts with mismatched sleeves and such, this one seems less “high tech” and more applicable to baseball. The actually design is a series diamonds in various sizes and the sleeve material underneath the screen print creates the dot pattern. Clever huh? I read recently Nike introduced a new compression shirt during the World Series with mesh vents on the forearms and elbows, but I wish they would include this unique design and make it more accessible.

    The dotted sleeves are banned by MLB aren’t they? At least for pitchers anyways…

    Pitchers need solid sleeves. Other positions do not have this restriction.
    Side note: pitchers’ gloves may not be white or gray. The spirit of the rule is probably “don’t blend the glove into the jersey, because the batter needs to see hands.” Nowadays, with alternate jerseys, use your imagination…real pet peeve of mine. Does this particularly bug anybody else?

    as much as people beat up oregon for their unis (and rightly so…they’re wayyyyyyy over the top)…i AM intrigued with someone ELSE coming out with a neon yellow uni (prolly just keep it to pants or jersey…not both), but without all that other crap oregon uses (piping, shoulders, the shit ON the shoulders…the shit on the knees)…just a neon yellow…combine it with a matte black and no other colors

    i’d love to see something like that, at least in theory…perhaps not in actual use, but i’d at least like to SEE it

    It’s just that lime green is actually really close to a Seattle team color. For that reason, I’d probably love to see a girl in a powder blue Chargers jersey, tolerate a lime green Jets jersey (wrong shade), and lose my appetite over, say, a pink Raiders jersey (I don’t know what would be more off the mark).

    seahawks colors are:

    “Seahawks Blue”, a darker “Seahawks Navy” and neon green piping.

    not sure if ‘neon green’ is an official color but that would make for an interesting jersey

  • Ben | January 6, 2008 at 12:19 am |

    Watching “we are marshall” right now and a uniwatch moment occured. After the article a few days ago on uniform memorials I’m wondering if the following (taken from wikipedia) actually occured or was made up for the film- In memory of the victims of the crash, Mountaineers players put green crosses and the initials “MU” on their helmets.

  • Ben | January 6, 2008 at 12:22 am |

    in my search for an answer just found the following history-The Thundering Herd has added award stickers to the helmets for the first time in many years for outstanding play. Mark Snyder has dipped into Herd history to begin awarding “Herd Horns,” or stickers that look like the horns of the Buffalo, or American Bison, the Herd’s mascot. Jack Lengyel gave a similar award while coaching the “Young” Thundering Herd from 1971-74, as the stickers go up the back of the helmet to form a pair of horns with every two given. The last time MU used stickers was 1988, when then head coach George Chaump gave “Hammers and Washboards,” awards for working out in the weight room over the summer. In 1976, then MU coach Frank Ellwood gave American Flag stickers to players for outstanding plays to put on the “Ohio State” style helmets of that year’s Herd, who had no logo on the side of that helmet. Marshall returned to a “M” in 1977 and, except for the 1984-85 green helmet of former coach Stan Parrish, has had a “M” or logo with a “M” in it since.
