Zip It Good

I’m willing to be wrong on this — I’d welcome it, actually — but why does Novak Djokovic have a zipper on his collar? Isn’t that what that green thing is? A zipper tab? Why? Does he suffer from overheating clavicles? Do the sleeves come off so he can go all Rafael Nadal on everybody?

Oh, and for those of you wondering about the Colorado shoulder and pants thingers, they didn’t look too bad. Well, not as bad as this, at least. — Bryan

    Maybe the zipper is there in case he feels a “Flashdance” moment coming on. Is that a smiley face on his racket?

  • Stuby | September 1, 2008 at 7:25 am |

    Oh yeah, one more thing. Is there a functional purpose to having one white wristband and one black? Does it represent the duality of Man?

    “Forehand” and “Backhand”, maybe?

  • Taha | September 1, 2008 at 9:18 am |

    Maybe he doesn’t want his rather bulbous head struggling to find its way through the normal-size neck hole of the finely knit t-shirt.

    perhaps a former sponsor?

  • Cork | September 1, 2008 at 9:29 am |

    Here is the above shirt with the zipper open…it appears to be a zipper that reveals a mesh layer, i am guessing to add ventilation to the shirt. why the shoulder? no idea. maybe there is some benefit to keeping the zipper along a preexisting seem in the shirt, rather than adding a new one.

    Put me down in the “thought Colorado looked ridiculous and Oregon-like” column. I hope that the team has a poor record this season, so as to reduce the likelihood of any other teams adopting the look.

  • Dave | September 1, 2008 at 10:26 am |

    This is an interesting 2-part look at the upcoming NHL 3rd jerseys this season. The images are based on second-hand descriptions, but they are interesting. I like most of what I see, compared to last year\’s league-wide rollout. Kudos to Edmonton, Pittsburgh, Montreal, and Buffalo.

    Along with their crappy beer*, St. Louis now has the worst 3rd jersey/sweater in the league, with Ottawa following close behind.

    *Of course this comment is subjective and biased since I live in Wisconsin.

  • Chad | September 1, 2008 at 11:14 am |

    the drawstrings on all the 3rd jerseys are annoying. there’s no gap that makes them functional, they’re there just to be there.

  • J | September 1, 2008 at 11:26 am |

    I’ve actually seen a similar thing on some sweatshirts that our football team has, but the reason for them appeared to deal with an iPod. You could snake the headphones down through the hole, thus having the cord and actual iPod concealed mostly within your sweatshirt but the earbuds free to go to your ears…No idea why Novak has it though.

    Boston, NY Islanders, Pittsburgh, and St. Louis are the only teams with the drawstrings. Since NHL players differ in size from Scott Gomez to Zdeno Chara, the drawstrings allow for a more comfortable fit in the neck and shoulder areas when tied properly. When tied tight, the jersey fits like a normal jersey. When tied loosely, the jersey allows for a little give in the shoulder areas, allowing greater movement.

    But the key is when tied properly.

  • E_Ro | September 1, 2008 at 12:03 pm |

    most of those NHL thirds are graphical representations of someone’s (who claims to have seen them) descriptions of what they look like… NHL 09 comes out on 9/11/08. I assume we’ll find out then.

    If you actually try on an authentic RBK Edge, or authentic sweater from the last few years, tying the draw string doesn’t help tighten it down at all. I am pretty certain it’s purely aesthetic nowadays, like stirrups in baseball. Though it wouldnt surprised me if the RBK Edge spec sheet said otherwise. (10% faster!)

    Reebok has only produced authentic jerseys with lace-up collars in the styles of the Atlanta Thrashers home jersey, the NY Rangers home jersey, the Minnesota Wild home jersey, both NY Islanders jerseys, both Phoenix Coyotes jerseys, both Boston Bruins jerseys, and both Calgary Flames jerseys.

    That’s 11/60 jerseys. While it might be aesthetic, it’s still traditional on the Rangers’ and Bruins’ jerseys, so it serves some purpose. Just not a functional purpose. ;o)

    I refuse to wear the Rbk EDGE jerseys, so I can’t say for certain how they fit, but the old Oilers’ alternate that I have (made by CCM) fits completely different depending on whether the jersey is tied properly or left loose.

    Don’t know if this has been discussed on here yet but, I’ve heard rumors that Tennessee’s Arian Foster will be wearing #30 today instead of his regular #27. This coming in honor of injured teammate and good friend David Holbert who blew out his knee in the spring and is likely done for over a year.

    The Isles also wore laces from their start into the late 70’s. I think the switch to a regular V neck probably came with improved materials that wouldn’t tear that that vulnerable spot on a uniform.

    The old Laces were truly functional. The laces of the latest uni era, however, have a piece of material behind the laces – if you tie it tight, the material bunches at the neck. If you “loosen it up, you ‘ll only get “so much” additional wiggle room – much less than the ld sweater design would offer.

    It is with this in mind that I think the new laces are absolutely nothing but fashion – an attempt to “keep some tradition” in the new design.

    After all, the slimmer fit of the cool flow stuff actually harkens back to hockey sweater fits of the 70’s

    Yeah, they’re just to add a bit of tradition. Adjusting the fit isn’t important, the real jerseys are custom fit to each player- before the season RBK measures each player on the 50 man roster and makes them a jersey to their specs- if they want extra room in the shoulders they can get it.

    the laces are purely for looks.

    Which is why, when Reebok offers the authentic jerseys to the fans, this is a total slap in the face from a multi-billion company.

    The early days of the “monochrome” look led to at least on college nickname…

    (from collegefootballhistory.com…)

    The “Golden” adjective has not always been a part of the Gopher nickname. During the 1930s, the Gophers wore gold jerseys and pants. Legendary KSTP-AM radio announcer Halsey Hall coined the term “Golden Gophers” in reference to the team’s all-gold attire on the field.

    (I dunno…i’m just supplying universal punchlines, adaptable to any particular opposing team’s fans).

    Favorite is still that the “N” on the Nebraska helmets stands for “Knowledge”.

  • Ricko | September 1, 2008 at 10:46 pm |

    Someone can check this, but UCLA’s blue has always been…variable. Over the past decade or so I’ve seen the BASEBALL team wear essentially the same uni, varying from year to year, using navy and gold, royal and gold, powder and gold…and seen all three hats available for sale during the year they were worn.

    If fact, I think in various college years (fall to spring), the football team wore light powder bue, the basketball team that “dark sky blue” and the baseball team navy or royal (depending on the year).

  • J in Berkshire | September 1, 2008 at 10:46 pm |

    The UCLA school colors are “True Blue” and gold. The “True Blue” is a slightly darker shade than the previous powder blue worn by teams. The shade was developed by the UCLA athletic department and Adidas for the 2003 school year

  • The Hemogoblin | September 1, 2008 at 10:48 pm |

    Ricko, my only thing is this:

    Powder blue for the Bruins has been an institution. It’s what everyone identifies UCLA football with. That and underachievement when the lights are brightest (WASH YUCK-LA).

    And I agree, absolutely. That powder blue was a signature. Shame to see them lose it. That’s why I was wondering about the new blue. Don’t like it (and am wondering if is the beginning of standardization of the blue across all UCLA teams). It’s like Tennessee or Texas going to the same orange as the Bengals or Browns, though. Nothing wrong with that orange, just wouldn’t be the Volunteers or the Longhorns

    UCLA football team is only one of Big Three to use old gold, too. Basketball and baseball use non-metallic light gold (“Steeler” gold).

    Absolutely right, Ricko. They are hideous. But you have to understand Berkley. This is a conservative for the area. I already forgot I posted this yesterday:

    Maybe it’s a product of not being alive during the numberpants days, but they’re a look that I don’t really like.

    Illinois has a more “traditional” Rose Bowl patch, anybody remember anything else similar to UCLA’s in any other Rose Bowl?[/quote]

    I believe this pic of Neuheisel was used as the entry one day within the past six months…I recall Michigan having similar patches during th early 90’s.

    Get out of my head! I was thinking the exact same thing tonight while watching the game. Even mentioned it to my girlfriend and got the usual shrug/eyeroll combo. Someone should photoshop the helmet with UCLA on it. Love to see that.[/quote]

    I was thinking the same thing during the game, after we were talking about how many different campuses the University of California has
