Presenting Your 2008 US Olympic Streetball Team

d6a3db3d5270a0d9a83a98f10882c4f6-getty-2732259ds008_mercury_lynx.jpg

There was a ceremony of sorts in a league called the “WNBA” last night, during which three members of the US Olympic basketball team showed off their jerseys. If I could read their names, I’d tell you who those players were. At this point, it’s a total toss-up for the worst jersey element — keeping in mind the horrors that could be on the front — between the … umm, “graphic” on the back and the red letters.

Also on Saturday, the White Sox unveiled a new alternate cap. It’s easily the next phase in performance-enhancing materials. — Bryan

    It’s nice to see the US Olympic committee reaching out to our country’s blind community for help in designing the athlete’s attire.

    Reminds me of those 3-D pop-out portraits we all stared at 15 years ago.

    HAHAHA those are the most heinous jerseys I have ever seen. Maybe they were intended to add a feminine element to womens basketball?

    As for those Frocks for Jock-ettes, wow do they suck big time. For the record, that’s Diana Taurasi, Seimone Augustus, and Cappie Pondexter, from left to right. And yes, since none of those women are Sue Bird, I probably know too much about the WNBA for my own good.

    In the same game (Texas A&M- Florida, Women’s College World Series), the A&M third-base coach is wearing a blank maroon helmet, although college softball base coaches aren’t required to wear them. No pics, unfortunately.

    I just saw the Visa Olympics commercial featuring Derek Redmond (famous from the 1992 barcelona olympics for hopping across the finish line with his father after an injury).

    Of course, I recall his father famously wearing a Nike hat and t-shirt, which has been photoshopped out of the ad. I guess people have different opinions of the Nike brand, but in my opinion, that was a totally unscripted (unscriptable) moment and to remove some of the elements is to disrespect the moment… kind of like taking Craig Ehlo out of this moment.

    I long for the day when women’s basketball and particularly the WNBA is no more. The game is boring, boring, boring. Any decent boys high school team would destroy a WNBA team. The media salivates all over the WNBA, but the fact is that if it was not for major $ subsidizing from the NBA, it would have folded long ago. The uniforms are awful, the game is awful, and now the Olympic jersies are awful. I hope we lose in the first round to Poland.

    griffey just had a nice uniform quirk as noted by the braves announcers.

    Brian McCann just hit a homer to right field, and griffey never moved. except to tuck-in his jersey before the ball even landed in the stands.

  • Walaitis | June 1, 2008 at 3:01 pm |

    Watching the Cardinals and Pirates today, and realizing that to go with their road grey “vests” (or sleeveless jerseys, since they’re really not vests), at least some players are wearing black-sleeved undershirts with grey torsos.

    Any time they stand in positions other than arms straight down (you know, unusual positions like, say, raising their bats to swing), the grey torsos stand out loud and clear.

    Sorry. No pictures (the concept of pulling out the digital camera, pausing Tivo at just the right moment, bringing the memory card down to the basement to the computer with the memory card slot, loading up the image, saving it to Flikr, and then posting the link here – WAY too much work on a lazy Sunday afternoon).

    Cincinnati Reds: extremely bizarre. Hats: home all red, away black brim. Helmets always all red except for coaches; coaches have black brimmed helmets to match the fielders’ caps.

I hope that they do not give in to the temptation to start wearing them so often that they become the norm and the regular jersey becomes the de facto alt.

    Whoa, bet Paul will leap at these. Purple AND sewn in.

    When did WNBA claim their game was a good as NBA? Or that they were some kind of NBA development league? Jeez, this lame discussion goes back more than thirty years to when Billie Jean King said, rightly so, that women never claimed they could compete with men, just that their game was as entertaining.

    Now you’ll say the WNBA isn’t entertaining, and I won’t disagree. Why don’t guys enjoy the WNBA? Cuz it’s played were most of us play the game, i.e., below the rim. Not such a thrill watching someone do something we think we can do, however badly we may in fact do it. So much of NBA and NCAA men’s basketball, on the other hand, is played above the rim, where we go rarely, much less with the regularity their players do. Woman/Girls watch WNBA cuz it’s their game…and that’s where the league (somewhat like MLS) hangs its hopes: that enough of those who participate will watch/buy tickets to make it worth continuing.

    So far, it hasn’t really worked out that way for either of them.

    Now, with regard to the time ESPN and others devote to coverage of the WNBA, I feel that same way–even moreso–about auto racing and (this one I don’t get at ALL) poker.

    well, since none of them are actually sports, at least not like cup stacking is a sport…

    but seriously, great points ricko…i never thought about the ladies hoop in that it is basically below the rim (although…isn’t there one or two chicks who can dunk???)…but it’s a fair analogy…

    funny you mention that the women’s game is the way we “athletes” are more apt to play…as a tennis player (and a decent one in my prime), i actually enjoyed watching women’s tennis (live) much more than the men because i always thought i could compete at that level…the men…fuggetabootit…fun to watch, but no way was that happening…

    golf too…99% of us couldn’t compete with the women golfers, but we could prolly outdrive them…so we can somewhat relate…guys like phil, tiger, ernie…yeah right…it might look easy but they are snipers

    but we can at least THINK we could play on a level the ladies hoopsters play at (plus, for the most part…we’re prolly almost as tall, if not taller…whom amongst us is 6’11”???)…

    That’s correct regarding Granato. Cammi has never played in the NHL.

    [quote comment=”273721″]Please forgive me if it has been talked about… but a few days ago Paul posted in the ticker that the Brewers are shaming themselves by using the pitchers mound to advertise their web site, but in the past few games there has been a different logo on the mound, and I have been gone the past few days and just saw quick highlights and can’t make out what the logo in the “light dirt” is. Is it their “M” logo? Any help of photo evidence would be sweet.[/quote]

    Never mind… like a good Brewers fan I just went to Brewers.com like the pitching mound told me to, and clicked on some video highlights from the past few games, and verified the Brewers are using that space by putting their “M” logo on the mound.

    [quote comment=”273720″][quote comment=”273673″][quote comment=”273669″]Wow those jerseys suck. Thanks for pointing them out, even if no post you made has ever sat right with me.[/quote]

    I feel the same way about your comments.[/quote]

    Bryan, just when I was coming around on you, you need to stoop and say something obnoxious like this. The guy was paying you a compliment, however backhanded, and you get down in the dirt with him. I just don’t get it.[/quote]

    I think that response from Bryan was justified. And had Paul said that, everyone on here would be praising him and making comments like, “If you don’t like it, take this site off your bookmarks.” Double standard?

    OK, Kek, your tendency to disagree, vocally, with our host is duly noted. However, the vast majority of commenters say something to that effect.

    I know C.N….. just keepin’ you honest!

    Seriously though, I think you’re spot on about the double standard. Me personally, I call them as I see them, with both Paul and Bryan. I may dislike some things but overall I like a lot of the stuff that comes from this blog.

    However, folks seem to have had it in for Bryan since his first post, or so it seems.

    Paul takes his stance on topics like logo creep, pink/cancer awareness, Sean Taylor tributes and most are in agreement with him. The Uniwatch blog was the only place I saw any positive reaction from that hatchet job on Piazza recently too.

    But everyone has their sensitivity hats on when Bryan posts the weekend. And for the record Bryan, I agree with you, that kid with the eyeblack did look like a clown!

    There was an old timers game recently in Japan to honour a great submariner from the 70s and 80s.

    He played with many of his former contemporaries wearing uniforms from that era when teams were still:

    Post eaten… that’s suspect. It was visible last night. I guess it’s come to posts that don’t agree with the tone of the blog are deleted now????
