Trainwreck, or Just a Collision?

slide

At some point in the last six months, weren’t we promised the banishment of those damn red Pirates jerseys? Seriously — wasn’t that a winter fan-fest sort of thing?

Well I’m here to say, “What the HELL? Why are they back?” And if the end of the line wasn’t supposed to be until after this year, I’m here to say, “Can’t you just stop now? The Pirates’ season is over already. The next five months are merely a formality.”

I’m sorry, Buccos fans. It’s true. — Bryan

    Brian, it’s refreshing to see an early riser like myself. The red Bucs jerseys look like bad bowling shirts.

    When did Jeff Kent grow a beard and get traded to the Phillies? Seriously, those red vest things have to go. I can’t imagine any Pirate fan dropping $139.99 for one of those things.

    If they want to wear a vest, they should go this route.

    Thanks for reminding me, Phil. I love looking at his projected totals for the 2008 season: 0 wins, 34 losses (or $426,470 per loss). But the glass is half full – he brought the stirrups back.

    So this is a bit random, but I was browsing through the website for “670 The Score” (Chicago’s main sports talk radio station) and I went to their pro shop to look at authentic jerseys for the Cubbies. I noticed that the jersey they had as an example was that of Juan Pierre. Pierre hasn’t played for the Cubs since the 2006 season. I find it curious as to why there is even a picture of Pierre’s jersey, let alone it be used as an “example jersey” while trying to sell them.

    I recoiled twice during the Phils game. Once at those safety vests and the second time when the Phils blew a 6-0 lead.

    Also, a quote from ESPN.com comments section on Favre being the cover athlete for Madden 09

    “I never even thought about having Sean Taylor on the cover… Picture it: Sean Taylor holding the ball by his hip in his left hand, looking up and pointing to the sky with his right hand… gives me chills just thinkin bout it….

    The only thing worse than that red Pirate jersey is the black underbill on the Philly cap. Why can’t light gray remain an option? When one is only allowed a black underbill, one is only allowed a hat with colors that go with black. And black does NOT go with everything. The thought of that black underbill with the royal blue button on top is hideous. Tantamount to the Mets current (yet longstanding) mishap. Those black underbills don’t look good with any combination. Can I still find gray ones? You know what I’m sayin. See what I’m sayin. Know what I’m sayin.

    All the teams have undershirts that are grey on the torso with team colored sleeves. It’s more noticeable with the vests, but sometimes you can see the grey near the neck of a loose jersey.

    Some alternative jerseys – have that look that says: “We’ll try and damm color combo just to sell a few more at the concession stands……. this is definitely one of them.

    On a totally separate subject – every year at about this time I say a little prayer , that the Kansas City Chiefs will not change their uniforms. Not that it’s the greatest jersey – but here was the late 60’s/early 70’s kind of cool new color combo – There were the Chiefs , Atlanta Flames and Atlanta Hawks. For me it was the Flames that as a kid fascinated me. Now with the exception of the Chiefs ,those teams added black and over time, the red/yellow was either phased out (Calgary Flames) or completely changed the Hawks> But the Chiefs remain, oh they occaisionally change their pant color – and they have an easy to excuse to add black – afterall the outline of the arrowhead, and here’s hoping for another year they resist those dark forces.

    I hate the Mets, but I’ll admit that Billy Wagner isn’t terrible. That being said, I prefer to see Scott Schoenweis pitch, though I will settle for Sosa.[/quote]

    You may have discussed this already however just came across the new UM (Minn) football uniforms for next year and they seem to have changed the maroon to a darker more “purpleish” shade of maroon… check’em out here

    And here is a picture of the previous uniforms.

    [quote comment=”256349″]ESPN is pissing me off as they are killing all the drama in the draft. I think they sent a camera crew to every prospect’s house with a box of team draft hats. As soon as the player gets the call from the team, they hand him the hat Before the commissioner even reads the name.[/quote]

    This is a joke, right?

    The University of Cincinnati Bearcats football team has released their new uniforms and they are exactly as they were described to me… maybe a little tamer.

    Is the ALLEN on the uni vertically arched? It looks like it might be.

    Philly Soul will wear new blue third jerseys on Monday (with dark grey sleeves and “PHL” on neckline akin to PHX) in their Dallas game at the Spectrum (moved from the facility formerly known as the FU Center due to Flyers playoff game, meaning 2,000 less fans due to sellout. Those who had tickets but can’t get in the Spectrum will get a exchange for any future game and a free hot dog and soda.)

    i actually pictured them being a lot worse than they turned out. they’re pretty bad though. the unnecessary piping, the red side panels on the black jerseys, the black stripe on the white and red jerseys, and the cat stracthes on the pants are all awful. at least the garish adidas 3 stripe pattern isn’t all over them.

  • Ricko | April 27, 2008 at 7:53 am |

    Bearcats pants make it look like they had a little trouble fleeing from…a bearcat, maybe?

    Or is their new team mantra, “We’re Bearcats. We scratch each other’s butts.”?

    Sorry, I’m just amazed at the wrongheadedness that emerges in uni design, more so than ever these days. Like Oregon’s techno pattern that looks like tiremarks. “We’re Ducks. So fast we get run over crossing the highway.”
    But it IS Cincinnati, where they long have been convinced that helmets apparently splintered by a ferocious hit (Bengals) look really snazzy.

    [quote comment=”256308″]Pirate management ought to ask themselves:

    What would …Willie Stargell…look like wearing those unis?[/quote]

    Willie did wear this hat and uniform in the 70’s. I’m sure he’d have looked right at home. And so what if its not one of their original colors. I think this is a fight we’re not really going to win ever again.

    Seriously, I like that idea, an actual red JERSEY thing.

    Oh, and the state of the Bucs, I think they need a major shakeup of a trade. Get a pitcher who doesn’t give up four runs in the first inning for Nady. They’re not even playing him every night. Why they aren’t playing Mientkiewicz more, I’ll never know.

  • Ricko | April 27, 2008 at 10:43 am |

    Seems to me teams don’t get that ADDING a color doesn’t autpmatically make things better (this year’s Celtics, for example). “One Color and White” is a dying combination, and has one less practioneer with Celtics adding alternate unis. Colts, Maple Leafs and Red Wings are among the few pro teams that hold onto that classic look. I suppose pros think it’s too “collegiate” (Alabama, Penn State, Texas, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Michigan State, et al).

    It’s the fans in PA, they just are not as smart as we would hope. At Penn State, they have white outs all the time, when the home team is wearing blow, I mean blue. Look at the OSU game a few years ago.

  • Shawn | April 27, 2008 at 5:38 pm |

    The Pirates’ red-billed caps with the black jersey from a few years back looked pretty good. Those red vests with the yellow trim look like somebody should be taking my order for a Big Mac.

    You don’t know anything. Most people in Pittsburgh hate Penn State. Sidney Crosby requested the whiteout to see how it would look. They probably did white because (a) they had been giving out white towels the entire playoffs; (b) gold would look too much like a steelers game; and (c) black would look terrible. So they come from a 3-goal deficit to win during the whiteout – looks like it was a success.
