It’s Getting On That Time Again

If I didn’t know any better, I’d say it’s almost football season. Wait … August 17 … hot as balls … fantasy football nerds roaming the streets … Madden has been released … yes! It is almost football season. And that means it’s time to get out your nonsensical hats, everybody. This guy was in the Superdome last night. Unlike this collection of monstrosities, I have no idea what this guy’s hat means. Well, I know what it means for him, but I’m not sure of the message he’s sending. — Bryan

    [quote comment=”284937″]Does anyone know the story with the Indians’ jerseys today, in the 1948 style?

    They seem to wear those for every Saturday home game. They look great, don’t they?[/quote]
    This is from yesterday, but the jerseys that they were wearing had “Indians” in the script, the old Chief Wahoo patch on the sleeve, and large red piping on the sleeves. Their normal alternate “throwback” jerseys have “Indians” in block letters, the current Chief Wahoo, and thin navy piping on the sleeves.

    Has anyone on here noted the AWFUL font for the numbers on the Netherlands’ soccer jersey? It looked like numbers made with athletic tape.

    In the same Olympic soccer game, Argentina had a very weird crest on their uniform. It blended into the colors of the uni, so you could barely it. It looked like a mistake, actually. Very odd game uni-wise. It actually gave me a twitch.

    I’ll look for some pics.

    They wore those at Euro 08 but instead of their flag they had the lion. I really love this year’s jersey… yes, even the numbers.

    And as for crest it was probably a different crest then the original one because teams can not wear their normal crest do to IOC rules. The ones that wear them are facing fines from the IOC.

    Yeah, that’s pretty garish for the pitch, isn’t it? I like the tangerine and white of Blackpool, though.

    This is something that struck me, in the wake of our recent conversations about team colors:

    North American sports traditionalists lament the overhaul of a classic uniform, and are horrified when a team changes colors. English soccer clubs have, for decades, had completely different colors for their away uniforms; these days, changing the away kit to something completely different from the previous season’s — weren’t City in purple away from home last season? — is so common as to be expected.

    Imagine that, NFL fans: The Packers wearing red and black on the road one year, then blue and orange the next.

    Only the other 29,999 hated it. I was there and loved it! The organist was such an upgrade over the usual in between innings time filler they have! My only complaint was that I was in the bleachers, with the only scoreboard behind me. The should’ve had a box score on the display board on the first base side so we could know more of what was going on. I also would’ve liked to see the striped socks, but other than that the uniforms great!

    Browns wearing brown pants tomorrow…

    http://www.cleveland...

    The Browns will wear brown pants for the first time in team history during Monday night’s nationally-televised preseason game against the New York Giants at Giants Stadium.

    The pants are the same color of “darker” brown that’s on the plain socks the Browns have worn in recent seasons. They contain no stripes or markings.

    They will be wearing those socks again on Monday, with their traditional white jerseys and orange helmets, and also the black shoes they started wearing again in 2006.

    The team had the brown pants created as an option for their away uniform when they integrated the gray facemask in 2006. No final plans have been made as to whether or not the team will wear the pants for any other road game this year.

    Yesterday, in the South Africa-New Zealand rugby match, Percy Montgomery and Juan Smith made their 100th and 50th appearances respectively for the Boks. Both were marked with embroidery only on the jerseys of the players in question.
    Juan got “50th Test” underneath his Springbok, but Perce got his full name “Percival Colin Montgomery 100th Test” in the middle of his.
    I can’t find any photos, but I do know that if my given names were Percival Colin, I wouldn’t want to advertise it during an international rugby match.

    So I’m confused…solid brown-top socks or white socks with the stripe pattern? I’d hate the solid brown pants a lot more with the matching brown socks.
    Related thought: What will the TMQ name for this wardrobe be? When the Browns wore much more orange than the helmet (read: jerseys or pants), they would be called either the Cleveland Oranges 2.0 (pre-Romeo Crennel) or 2.1. How about Cleveland Big Browns 2.1?

    JohnnyF,

    Holland’s had that number font for about two years now.

    “The number font, created specifically for The Netherlands, is inspired by Dutch architecture and Delftian art.”

    From a book I got from Nike two years ago, evidently entitled Joga Bonito. Anyway, it details all the new Nike national team kits, back from about two years ago. Pretty cool.

    Been disucussed. Rule is that a flag on a sleeve should always be worn with stars forward, so flag does flip-flop depending on which sleeve.

    @ #6 and #32:

    Now if only Nike could explain how they came to combine things like this this and this to this. Artistic freedom is okay, but electrical tape or toilet paper seem to be more likely inspirations.
