Uni Watch Confectionary Project

Got an interesting note the other day from charter member Mike Lucas, who wanted to let me know about a kitchen project his family had recently undertaken. Check it out:

After seeing your ticker item about the customized Super Bowl table covering, I thought you’d appreciate the effort we recently put into my daughter Sophie‘s 10th birthday cake.

The concept was hers — she’s a 4th grade peewee football cheerleader who follows mom and dad’s leads as a Browns fans, and she also likes to draw and paint. So her idea was an artist drawing a football game. The players are over 30 yrs old, from my original electric football game (I don’t have the vibrating field anymore). The green field, palette, goal posts, end zone pylons, midfield helmet and Gatorade cooler were made from fondant, the benches were Hershey’s chocolate bars with chocolate-dipped marshmallow legs (you can see them upside-down here, along with the fondant goalposts and end zone pylons), and the dirt sideline was crushed chocolate graham cracker. The cake itself was chocolate, with chocolate chips and some oatmeal added (fiber is our friend), plus some extra water because of the oatmeal, so the cake was super-moist.

My wife Kathie, my daughter, and I worked on it for three days, but we loved how it turned out — just crooked enough to show we’re amateurs who have more love than talent.

And as an aside, since I know you are a bit of a meat foodie, you may appreciate our bacon mat, a great way to make an open-face BLT for a group.

This is all so great, I’m willing to overlook the fact that Mike dresses his daughter in purple and spells Lukas incorrectly it’s making me hungry. And by coincidence, James Huening just sent me some pics of a Stanley Cup cake (yes, that’s a cake), which was featured on a recent episode of Ace of Cakes (additional photos here, here, here, and here, and there’s a video clip here).

And as long as we’re talking about cooking, it’s worth noting that chef’s attire is one of the world’s most enduring uniforms. I especially like that chef’s toques traditionally have 100 pleats, supposedly to represent the 100 ways in which a chef can cook an egg. Nowadays, though, many chefs — like everyone else in the world — are wearing baseball caps (a trend started by Wolfgang Puck in the 1980s), part of the casual Friday-ization of, well, everything.

Uni Watch News Ticker: Major article in today’s Wall Street Journal about the guy who claims to have created the MLB logo — the first time I’ve seen this designer named. The article explicitly refutes the notion that the logo was based on a photo of Harmon Killebrew (or anyone else), although it neglects to mention the logo’s most sublime aspect, namely that it can be viewed as either a left-handed or right-handed batter. … Wanna have a jersey made out of rabbit fur? Yeah, me neither, but don’t let that stop you (with thanks to Nathan Gemignani). … Here are some good close-up views of the patches being worn by NBA teams for preseason games in China and Europe. As you can see, the Euro patches are each based on the host country’s flag. … Got a really cool present in the mail yesterday: this old 49ers mini-pennant, featuring a logo I’d never seen before. It was a gift from Noel Basnight, acquired it in 1996 at an auction of items from the personal collection of Nate Fine, the longtime official photographer of the Washington Redskins. He included scans of some other pennants from that lot, which you can see here. … The girls volleyball team at Myrtle Beach High School in South Carolina wears argyle socks (with thanks to Mike Miller). … Jesus Christ (no pun intended). … Those of you who buy authentic jerseys probably know this already, but I didn’t: All NBA jerseys have three little lines sewn into the shirttail — just another bit of Adidas branding. … Also, I’m not sure I realized this before, but the NBA logo is slightly altered on the league’s throwback jerseys. Instead of the standard red, white, and blue, it’s a darker red, beige, and a darker blue. … According to Ben Shaulis, Ike Taylor was actually fined for wearing black spats and no whites on Sept. 29th, not for low whites on Oct. 5th. … Awesome police department hockey jersey available here (with thanks to John Muir). … Awesome double-FNOB photo of Jeff and Joe Bostic playing for Clemson in 1978 (awesome find by Adrian Brashier). … This is one of the most amazing hockey fights I’ve ever seen, but that’s not why I’m linking to it. Turns out there’s a uni-related oddity: The linesmen have these thick black center stripes. Never seen that before (good catch by Mark Kaplowitz). … If you look closely at this photo from this week’s SI, you’ll see that his left armband appears to be inscribed with the words “Be An Asshole!” (good spot by Neil Vendetti). … Look at the size of the NBA logo on Oscar Robertson’s shorts! … FNOB alert: Bert Jones from his LSU days (nice find by Mako Mameli). … The problem with titty bars isn’t that they corrupt our youth, or that they’re a breeding ground for drugs and prostitution — it’s that they siphon off crucial uni-related funds. … Matt Campbell spotted a buncha cool stuff in the current Leland’s auction, including a ruptured duck patch, a set of New York Giants season passes, a really interesting 1950s Cuban jersey, and a 1960s Puerto Rican uni worn by Roberto Clemente (note the amazing sleeve patch). … Interesting request from Charlie Usas: “My fiancé agreed to let me ask the organist at our wedding to play ‘Brass Bonanza,’ the theme song of the former Hartford Whalers. The thing is, our wedding is this Saturday and I need the sheet music.” If you just happen to have the sheet music lying around your house, or if you know someone who does, give Charlie a shout.

    As I recall, that LSU team may have had three Joneses: Bert Jones, Dub Jones and Ben Jones (Bert’s brother, a WR). Can’t remember Dub’s position, but think he might have been another QB and another brother, cuz Bert and Ben’s father was former NFL star (Browns) Dub Jones. Don’t have time to research it right now, though. Later, gang.

    That team also had a little WR/SB named Jimmy LeDeoux (wore #1). I remember his daughter was born just before a game and he had “IT’S A GIRL” handwritten with magic marker on the back of his jersey. Finding a photo of it might be a real task, though.

    This just occurred to me: The batter in the MLB logo appears to be wearing a helmet. At least looking at the size, shape and curvature I can’t shake that impression.
    However, helmets weren’t obligatory in 1968 at the Major League level.

  • Joe Drennan | October 23, 2008 at 8:53 am |

    Looking at that awsome hockey fight (who wouldn’t jump at the chance to give a Russian a beat down in the ’80s?) My thought about that thick center stripe is simply bad design. Those ref jerseys have a zipper in the center and the designer probably thought it made sense to have black on either side of the zipper – good idea if they would have simply had half the thickness of the normal black stripe so when zipped up it was unnoticable.

    He is. The vast majority of players did wear helmets long before 1968. As early as the late 50’s they were becoming pretty much common. It just didn’t become formalized policy until ’68.

    The thick black center stripes are actually where the zipper down the front of the ref jersey goes. Modern ref jerseys are half-zip and use smaller zippers than back then.

    I refuse to take crap for the fact that I saw an advanced screening of High School Musical 3 last night, but one of the basketball players (Chad, played by Corbin Bleu, for those with small children) had a his NOB and number in tackle twill on the back of his Prom tux – however, it was in purple, to match his dates’ dress.

    One of the best things about that fight is that it’s hard to tell, especially on the wide shots, just who is on which team. It’s a big blur of red and white.

    lol It’s ok. Great Movie though, you should watch it when you get a chance. Great look at minor hockey and the lives of it’s players.

    To “piggyback” on comment #15, this might force PL to revoke my UW membership, I have, in fact seen both HSM and HSM 2, with my kids, and loved both of them.

    They are extremely well made films with upbeat storylines.

    I am actually looking forward to seeing HSM3 with my girls, one of whom is dressing up as an “East High” cheerleader…now if I can coax my wife into donning the same outfit, I’ll be in luck!

    The team was named after the Bull Durham tobacco company (also where the term “Bullpen” comes from), so maybe that’s why.

    Has any advertiser had as big an impact on everyday baseball than Bull Durham? The impact of the movie, the minor league team, the term bullpen.

    Couple of NFL items from Sunday I haven’t seen discussed, though I haven’t searched too thoroughly:

    1. Anybody catch ESPN’s “The Mayne Event” where they joked about the epidemic of loose fitting helmets and how many ‘beheadings’ there are per game? By the end, it showed the likes of Steven Jackson deciding to just tape his helmet around his chin.

    2. Didn’t get a screen grab of this b/c I had the Giants game on, but flipping during a commercial to the Rams/Boys game, Steven Jackson had the back of his jersey rip from below his nameplate to shirttail, straight down the right side. The equip guy on the sideline looked at it for a few seconds to see if it could be mended, but I’m not sure what happened after that (this was in the first half). Flipped back after halftime, and he had a new jersey on.

    That Walker photo reminds me of something that I always found interesting: During Walker’s freshman year, he usually played in a plain jersey (no sleve stripes or number outline, and he might have had NNOB as well; I can’t remember that detail), so that he looked quite different from his teammates. Why was that?

    In the Rams/’Boys tilt, Jacksonmissed an offensive series(!) while the equipment guys (apparently) raced to the locker room to get him a replacement jersey. No screen grab (don’t have the software/connection), but his hair was “tucked” inside the jersey as he ran onto the field… but was flopping outside his jersey by the time he broke the huddle.

    To “piggyback” on comment #15, this might force PL to revoke my UW membership, I have, in fact seen both HSM and HSM 2, with my kids, and loved both of them.

    They are extremely well made films with upbeat storylines.

    I am actually looking forward to seeing HSM3 with my girls, one of whom is dressing up as an “East High” cheerleader…now if I can coax my wife into donning the same outfit, I’ll be in luck![/quote]

    As a Bulls fan, and usually a old school uni liker I really hate to say this, but, the Chicago Bulls unis are looking really dated, and not in a good way. The shorts especially just look weird. I’m thinking it has a lot to do with the oversized look, they looked much better in the Jordan era. Also the home whites have always had a black-sock-left-in-with-the-white-laundry-look to them, BSLIWTWLL if you will. But either way, they need a revamp IMHO. But I’m am affraid they’d go straight to a black away jersey rather than as an alternate and use the red as an accent color. And, dare I say it, I wish they go with more form fitting topa, ala SOD unis.

    Gotta admit, I dig the HSM films (and a good bit of Disney’s other stuff too…GASP!). Too many people apparently take themselves too seriously these days. Love Bull Durham, Field of Dreams, and HSM. Who cares? Different strokes for different folks.

    I also think that the iconic pinstripes are classic, but overrated; the Braves blue jerseys are cool, but cursed; and the Rays’ duds are bland, but have grown on me. Does that mean I don’t Get It(tm)?

    Before this gets overblown, I’m pretty sure everyone who’s posted the HSM mockery so far has done so with tongue firmly in cheek. I know I did.

    I personally have seen “Bull Durham” exactly one time. “Eight Men Out” I’ve only seen bits and pieces of — never all the way through. “Slap Shot” — once all the way through and then again in just bits and pieces.

    And I love watching “The Backyardigans” and “Harold and the Purple Crayon” with my kids. They’re a bit too young for HSM yet, but that day is just around the corner.

    That Walker photo reminds me of something that I always found interesting: During Walker’s freshman year, he usually played in a plain jersey (no sleve stripes or number outline, and he might have had NNOB as well; I can’t remember that detail), so that he looked quite different from his teammates.

    [quote comment=”296289″]Looking at that awsome hockey fight (who wouldn’t jump at the chance to give a Russian a beat down in the ’80s?) My thought about that thick center stripe is simply bad design. Those ref jerseys have a zipper in the center and the designer probably thought it made sense to have black on either side of the zipper – good idea if they would have simply had half the thickness of the normal black stripe so when zipped up it was unnoticable.[/quote]

    The officials did use zip-up uniforms in the 1980s in international hockey mainly because NHL referees were not allowed to work international events at that point. The IIHF officials were given those uniforms by the IIHF.

    The Punch-Up in Piestany is the largest blackmark on Hockey Canada if you ask them. However, a lot of the Canadian players involved in the brawl said it is one of their proudest moments ever of their careers.

    Guys that were involved in that game include Theoren Fleury, Brendan Shanahan, Mike Keane, Jimmy Waite, Shawn Simpson, Everett Sanipass, Alexander Mogilny, Sergei Fedorov, Evgeni Davydov, and Pat Burns.

    Gare Joyce, a contributor to ESPN, actually wrote a very impressive book about the entire ordeal, called When The Lights Went Out. It’s a phenomenal story about what factors went into the brawl, and how the whole situation played out on each side – the IIHF, Hockey Canada, and the USSR’s program.

    As for Powers, kill him. LOL

    I agree, and I’m also a Bulls fan. For starters, the whites looked a lot better before they switched to that satiny fabric.

    They need to remove that diamond-shaped area from the shorts. The logo should stay, though.

    I think the jerseys still look good for the most part, but changes I’d like to see are
    A) go back to the script “Chicago” on the red ones
    B) Change the black jerseys from the block “CHICAGO” back to the block “BULLS” — with or without the pinstripes.

    The hockey brawl clip was amazing! I have never been a fan of fighting in hockey and was actually grateful the infiltration of the Russians have cleaned up the league quite a bit. However, there is something extremely comforting about an old school fight to resolve a competitve beef because it’s based on true passion! One of the few special things left in all of sports – that and stirrups (when they grace the field).

    And as for the three stripes on the shirt tail – I may have to give up my Uni Watch card because I have those on every single one of work-out pants where the seam splits and NEVER made the connection… :(

    I’d agree with a lot of that. The script has a certain class that’s hard to match, and it mirrors the Sox aways unis, very nice. You’ve pin-pointed the dirty sheen, it’s the new fabric. But, I think a total redesign as opposed to tweaks is what’s needed. As the old saying goes, you can’t polish a turd. I’m just affraid they’d go overbored with the swoopy, unfinished piping and stripes that’s the norm now.

    Paul, I remember you having a ticker item about Ryan Houston having “Houston” on both the front and back of his jersey.

    Has anyone noticed that Pedro Feliz’s jersey says “Phillies” on the front and “Feliz” on the back. Not exactly the same, but I found it interesting.

  • Ricko | October 23, 2008 at 2:34 pm |

    One thing is absolutely true. The short, cutoff jerseys, combined with larger pads, full sleeves, et al, create a silhouette that is larger at the top and narrower at the bottom. Today, with smaller pads, tighter jerseys and virtually no sleeves, is more more narrow at the top and wider below. So which really is the superhero look?

    Let’s face it…if a guy’s waist measures larger or about the same as his chest he isn’t gonna look like The Punisher in either style.

    Also is a CDI thing, based on players’ perceptions, accurate or inaccurate. Back then, show off abs. Today, show off guns.

    Shouldn’t there be clarification of the term “authentic” when referring to jerseys (i.e. [insert player’s name here] could have worn something just like this out on the field)?

    Take this Ken Griffey Jr. “authentic” jersey for example: http://cgi.ebay.com/...

    I was just thinking about the yellowing pits on the Phillies Cool Base jersey’s. I know this is a long shot but could they appear a little more yellow do to the red undershirts the Phillies use?

    One of the more unique minor league caps IMO. The baseball logo is a ghost and when it glows in the dark, it’s a G.

    Like W VA’s all-navy and all-gold. Think maybe is partially because they were among the first to do it…and because they’ve never done the unitard look, and the white shoes look better than black would with that uni.

    Yeah. That’s definitely a cute idea. And they’ve got at least two other cap variations. There’s one with a colored brim where I think the ghost’s eyes and teeth glow instead of the hidden G and then there’s a white one where the entire logo glows.

    [quote comment=”296352″][quote comment=”296338″]As a Bulls fan, and usually a old school uni liker I really hate to say this, but, the Chicago Bulls unis are looking really dated, and not in a good way. The shorts especially just look weird. I’m thinking it has a lot to do with the oversized look, they looked much better in the Jordan era. Also the home whites have always had a black-sock-left-in-with-the-white-laundry-look to them, BSLIWTWLL if you will. But either way, they need a revamp IMHO. But I’m am affraid they’d go straight to a black away jersey rather than as an alternate and use the red as an accent color. And, dare I say it, I wish they go with more form fitting topa, ala SOD unis.

    http://sports.yahoo....
    I agree, and I’m also a Bulls fan. For starters, the whites looked a lot better before they switched to that satiny fabric.

    They need to remove that diamond-shaped area from the shorts. The logo should stay, though.

    I think the jerseys still look good for the most part, but changes I’d like to see are
    A) go back to the script “Chicago” on the red ones
    B) Change the black jerseys from the block “CHICAGO” back to the block “BULLS” — with or without the pinstripes.[/quote]

    Got a question:

    On that Gordon jersey, why is the Chicago vertically arched and the Gordon radially?
