Staring At The Sun

Football

Making the Pro Bowl, while a nice honor and all, is all about the perks. Here, Patriots All-Pro ogler Asante Samuel takes advantage of one such perk. He’s proven himself on the field, but his gawking skill set needs some work.

Mercifully, all of the flowers hide those god-awful uniforms. Sublimated stars, random piping, and tapering, multicolored side panels on the pants … wouldn’t hurt to skip HD for this one. — Bryan

    It’s a wonder why the pro bowl uniforms are such atrocities year after year.

    the good news for you is the game will not be in HD. it will be in “enhanced widescreen”, which isn’t much better than analog. The reason: no HD trucks in Hawaii

  • Scott W | February 9, 2008 at 8:02 am |

    I’m surprised he didn’t drop out of the game like all the other Patriots’ stars did. Oh well… maybe he’s just playing in it to boose his free agent stock

    HAH! You’re never too good for a nice, old-fashioned pun. Cheers, art.

    I don’t know if this was really mentioned at all yesterday, but there was an interesting note from the Indiana-Illinois game on Thursday. Eric Gordon’s parents committed an ultimate uni faux-pas by wearing BLACK INDIANA UNIFORMS! what….the…HELL?! Also, it may have been the way her jersey folded over or something, but it looked like the first “I” was missing from Mrs. Gordon’s jersey for a good bit of the game. Maybe it was all of these uni mistakes that led Illini fans to throw stuff at the Gordons….

    Doesn’t sound like they have thought this all the way through. QB’s are QB’s are QB’s. #1 goes out, #2 goes in. What defensive position is designated? If it can be chosen, would any player who might play that spot get one too? What happens if the #2 defensive player is inserted in a different position along side #1? Personally, I really don’t care. Give ‘em all radio receivers, but that’s not the NFL’s style. They like to know exactly what everybody is doing all the time (videotaping not withstanding).

    i can only imagine the uniform development with nike on that one:
    MU: ok, so we want a uniform to commemorate a tragic event
    nike: so this is only gonna be worn once?
    mu: yeah
    nike: ok, so we can make it crazy with all kinds of subdued piping and a huge logo on the front and everything
    mu: no we’d really like it to be pretty plain
    nike: you sure?
    mu: yes, we think it’d be best for everyone
    nike: oh, well, heres the problem. we can’t handle simple and plain, especially with no swoosh on it. sorry.

    p.s. yes i know nike made those, and no adidas isn’t much better.

    I really don’t dig the whole “No Fun League” feel that’s come out of Roger Goodell’s NFL. He has aggressively gone after the misbehaving players, which is good, but he’s made the game even more political than it was. The NFL is getting too controlling with everything. I’m thinking they need to change the logo colors to red and yellow.

    That said, I think this version of a pink homage is really good. Fits the spirit of the sport and looks good on (as?) the uni. Well done. A little imagination goes a long way!

    I can kinda sorta see that. But then, it’s a little selfish to bitch about it.

    My problem isn’t so much a problem as a question: these things are usually said to “raise awareness” of breast cancer. Seriously – it’s 2008. Are there people who aren’t aware of this? Everybody knows a woman or many women, whether they’re relatives or friends. Can you honestly not be aware of breast cancer and how prevalent and deadly it is, by this point?

    Now, you want to raise funds, I’m all about that. It’s a widespread and insidious disease. But I just question whether or not you really have to raise awareness. Maybe I’m wrong.

    [quote] I see the point: novelty unis aren’t very novel if they’re constantly coming out[/quote]

    There’s that. They just become…I don’t know. A fad or something. Which would tend, eventually, to dilute the message, I would think.

    If the Dallas Cowboys wore pink, that would be a huge message as a one-time thing. But fifteen minor league hockey teams and twenty college basketball teams and it just eventually blends into the white noise of our lives, I think.

    Not that it’s not a good cause. Great cause. And I like pink, so I think it looks cool to do a uniform set in it (or some alternate color in a non-disease-awareness situation). I just think that the more people do it, the less people pay attention to it.

    Has noticed the during the State Farm NFL commercial that has all the different clips and shots of offensive lineman from.
    I noticed that the one o-lineman from the Bengals, I think its Anthony Munioz(?) anyways, the shot is a close up of him with his Bengals helmet on and if you look by his ear hole, there is actually a handwritten “69′ with a sharpie right on his helmet.
    Now I don’t know if it is his number or a tribute or what but his number is hand written and it is pretty cool to see.

    Here’s a good Nike story. Around 79 or so, Vitas Gerulaitis was wearing the Nike Wimbledon shoe. I wore those too- and in fact I was the first guy at my HS to wear Nikes- everyone called them NIKE with no long e, NIKE as in MIKE. No one knew! Vitas also wore some white socks with the swoosh and name on them- I thought they were cool, so I wrote Nike about them. They wrote me back and said “they had no plans to expand to a clothing line.” (!) But they sent me, free, three pair of plain tennis socks- one plain white, one with two lite blue stripes, and one with two green stripes, in Nike packaging with no logos on the socks.

    Not sure. My guess on the year of the photo is 1984 (’83 season) for a couple of reasons. With Walsh coaching, it was, if not now(?) the custom the losing coach of the championship game got the Pro Bowl. Also, behind LT is a player with a ‘Skins helmet. I’m pretty sure its Charlie Brown. Brown made two PB’s, 1982 & 1983. His 1982 helmet would have had numbers on the back, this one doesn’t. So in search of your #5 patch, and official who died sometime in 1983-84.

    Mariemont HS in suburban Cincinnati was either Puma Clydes or Adidas light blue suede, I forget the name. Me, I went with the canvas All-Court or the Wimbledon. I wore the canvas on claylike surfaces cause I liked to get em dirty from sliding around. The Wimdledons I kept clean for hard court, tho the left tooe had a ton of show goo due to dragging my left foot when I’d slide for a forehand.

    My problem isn’t so much a problem as a question: these things are usually said to “raise awareness” of breast cancer. Seriously – it’s 2008. Are there people who aren’t aware of this? Everybody knows a woman or many women, whether they’re relatives or friends. Can you honestly not be aware of breast cancer and how prevalent and deadly it is, by this point?

    Now, you want to raise funds, I’m all about that. It’s a widespread and insidious disease. But I just question whether or not you really have to raise awareness. Maybe I’m wrong.

    [quote] I see the point: novelty unis aren’t very novel if they’re constantly coming out[/quote]

    There’s that. They just become…I don’t know. A fad or something. Which would tend, eventually, to dilute the message, I would think.

    If the Dallas Cowboys wore pink, that would be a huge message as a one-time thing. But fifteen minor league hockey teams and twenty college basketball teams and it just eventually blends into the white noise of our lives, I think.

    Not that it’s not a good cause. Great cause. And I like pink, so I think it looks cool to do a uniform set in it (or some alternate color in a non-disease-awareness situation). I just think that the more people do it, the less people pay attention to it.[/quote]

    The fundraising part of this is also big. I’m pretty sure the majority of these pink uniforms will be auctioned for charity. I went to the Yale women’s hockey game last night (Princeton won 2-1), and they were also selling pink Yale hockey t-shirts and wrist bands for charity.

    Unfortunately, the neck openings on the pink jerseys was too big, so most of the Yale players had one shoulder pad sticking out.

    If anyone is watching today’s Iowa State-Texas mens bb game, you will notice that both coaching staffs are participating in Think Pink day. This is because the wife of ISU coach Greg McDermott is a breast cancer survivor, and he was able to get Texas coach Rick Barnes to also participate. I think Ames is the only site where the men and women are hosting Think Pink games in the same day.

    apparently the REAL tragedy then, is not so much that several members and coaches of the 58 squad perished in a plane crash, but the fact that said squad had such staid and understated unis

    Back to the original point, when ManU decided to replicate that ’58 “boring” uni (and man that is a snoozer) , they might have paid close enough attention to include the red pant stripe… I mean it would be like forgetting the blue center stripe down the Penn State helmet. Huge miss.
