Euro Championship fever is sweeping Eastern Europe, creating an epidemic even Croatian newborns can’t escape. More info on the Croatian national team and Euro 2008 here. Be glad soccer fever hasn’t yet infected our babies — they’d be wearing this. — Bryan

    Awww, cuuuuuuuuuuute. They look like little bags of dog chow.

    And the babies are sweet, too.

    Here is a good pic of the Cal State-Fullerton baseball team, who all wear Stirrups. Full gallery here.

    Croatians??? Are you sure those aren’t Czechs?

  • Walaitis | June 7, 2008 at 10:59 am |

    Bryan –

    I have to say, you’ve disappointed me a little. I expected at least SOME commentary on how the ignorant little ones pay no attention to the way their uniforms lay (some hang straight down, some curl up) … two of them are crying … totally different skin tone kid to kid. I mean, what kind of unity does this team have?

    Taking back my skin tone part of the comment … has Jackie Robinson Day taught me NOTHING???? Maybe if they (in MLB baseball, not newborn futbol) all wear 42 for every game, the concept of equality would be more in the forefront of my mind. I apologize to all I’ve offended.

    Your comment does make me wonder … how is it chosen whether Olympic teams wear light or dark colors a specfic game? And, when hosting an Olympics, shouldn’t a country’s teams always be allowed to be the “home” team?

  • steve | June 7, 2008 at 11:33 am |

    I can’t even keep up with all the college baseball players in the Super Regionals that seem to have one stirrup on right and one on backward. they get points for the attempt, but, man.

  • Dan King | June 7, 2008 at 11:50 am |

    yeah, those are Croatian babies because the Czechs were the Puma template.

    And here’s the Croatians theme song for the tournament:

    the funny part is that the team’s coach is in the band. I don’t think you’d get a coach with a part time job here unless he was giving speeches.

  • Mike Engle | June 7, 2008 at 12:01 pm |

    From the Uni Cameo Dept.: Eddie Murray. In my mind, he’s an Oriole, and him in any other uniform just looks wrong.
    Anybody have a picture of Charles Nagy in a Padres uniform?

  • Jet | June 7, 2008 at 12:04 pm |

    Just read yesterday’s Riversharks entry – fabulous!

    And this has gotta rank up there for quote of the year:

    “F*** this! I’ll make my own motherf***ing stirrups!”

    HAHAHAHAHA

  • Mike | June 7, 2008 at 12:35 pm |

    It looks like the Czech coach has actually had his jacket and shirt outfitted by PUMA. That’s going a little far with outfitting I think.

  • Ricko | June 7, 2008 at 12:49 pm |

    A Russian scientist and a Czechoslovakian scientist had spent their whole lives studying the majestic grizzly bear. Each year they petitioned their respective governments to allow them to go to Yellowstone to study these wondrous beasts. Finally, their request was granted and they immediately flew to New York and then west to Yellowstone. They reported to the local ranger station and were told that it was the grizzly mating season and it was much too dangerous to go out and study the animals. They pleaded that this was their only chance. Finally the ranger relented. The Russian and the Czech were given cell phones and told to report in each day.

    For several days they called in, and then nothing was heard from the two scientists. The rangers mounted a search party and found the scientists’ camp completely ravaged. There was no sign of the missing men.

    They then followed the trail of a male and a female bear. They found the female and decided they must kill the animal to find out if she had eaten the scientists, because they feared an international incident. They killed the female and cut open the bear’s stomach and, sure enough, found the remains of the Russian.

    One ranger turned to the other and said, “You know what this means, don’t you?”

    “Of course,” the other ranger nodded. “The Czech is in the male.”

    First reaction was the white panels made it look like a meshback from 70s. But, yeah, overall look is a good one…now that I’ve been watching it for a while.

    It’s the same thing they do in hockey. One team is home and one team is road. If you were home in your first game, you’d be road for your second game, and so on.

    For example, Canada was the road team for several of the games in the 2008 IIHF Hockey Championship. When they get to the playoff round, the team with the higher standing is normally the home team. But if the higher-ranked team was the home team during a match between the same teams in round-robin play, the lower-ranked team would be the home team in the interest of fairness.

    To me, it doesn’t really matter what jersey they wear if they are the host nation, does it? :o)

    Not necessarily. The status of “home team” is pre-assigned before the tournament starts, and the teams are instructed by the tournament technical staff which uniforms to wear for the match.

    It makes less difference in soccer, than in hockey (where the home team gets last line change).

    Jeffy asked why the quarterback had a green dot on his helmet in last Tuesday’s “Family Circus”.

    Hey, that means they have the same team colors as the “St. Louis” team Ray Milland pitched for (and devioulsy, I might add) in IT HAPPENS EVERY SPRING !

    (And everyone knows the green dot means they bought the helmet at a garage sale. Sheesh).

    Just pointed out on the Nationals broadcast – the Nats are wearing their red alternates with the DC logo on jersey and hat, but relief pitcher Luis Ayala is wearing the regular hat with the “curly W” logo.

    Not sure if this was covered at all since the beginning of the NCAA Baseball tournament, but I’ll share anyway.

    I just watched the conclusion of the Arizona St./Fresno St. super-regional game…and it looks like the Sun Devils have a small Pat Tillman (PT-42) patch above the pitchfork on their right sleeve. Head coach Pat Murphy is currently listed as wearing #42 on their roster.

    Just found it interesting that the apparent cross-sport nod continues to this day at ASU. Apologies if this has been mentioned.
