Monday Morning Uni Watch

kearse.jpg

As the Titans pushed their record to 9-0 yesterday, Jevon Kearse celebrated by making creative use of some tape on his jersey. Pretty cool move, and nobody will be able to copy it next week because nobody’s wearing No. 100.

My annual college hoops season-preview column is up now on ESPN. Meanwhile, we’ve got lots of other stuff to address here today, beginning with…

rafflet ticket by ben thoma.jpg

November Raffle: Great opportunity on tap here, as reader Alain Nana-Sinkam, who runs Classic Old School, is offering a free custom-designed jersey — including basic numbers, NOB, and one patch — to one lucky winner (plus he’s offering a 10% discount to all other Uni Watch readers). To enter, send a blank e-mail with your name in the subject line to the raffle address (not to the usual Uni Watch address, please) by this Thursday at 10pm. One entry per person, except for Uni Watch membership enrollees, who can send four entries. I’ll announce the winner on Friday.

New Sponsor Shout-Outs: As you you’ve probably noticed, we’ve got several new advertisers, all specializing in vintage (or at least vintage-style):

• Asgard Press sells a variety of eco-friendly printed matter — calendars, postcards, stationery, etc. — all featuring killer old-timey football images.

Historic Football Posters, as its name implies, sells a wide range of spectacular vintage gridiron posters.

• And Sports Propaganda Prints offers magnificent silk-screened baseball posters patterned after WWII-era propaganda art.

All three of these operations were brought to my attention by Uni Watch readers, and I’m happy to report that they’re all run by really great people who’ve been a pleasure to deal with as we’ve worked to get their ads up and running. Please keep them in mind for your holiday shopping. Thanks.

Uni Watch News Ticker: Boy howdie, can’t the Nats do anything right? As you may recall, their new road uni has plain, non-beveled uni numbers on the front — or at least it did at last week’s unveiling. But now a little birdie tells me that the jerseys shown at the unveiling were wrong and that the front numbers on the road jersey will be beveled after all. … On Friday I mentioned that Reebok was making a little hay over Nike’s snafu with that female marathon winner. Turns out there’s a little more to the story — begin reading with the third graf here (with thanks to Robert Tusso). … Another follow-up from Friday: I had linked to this photo showing someone wearing a swoosh-emblazoned black suit behind the USC end zone. Turns out it was ex-USC tailback Anthony Davis, who dresses up as a Nike billboard while selling his autograph for $10 a pop — money that may or may not go to a “foundation” of somewhat dubious propriety. Full details here. … Peter Macaluso has a job scanning old magazine pages and posting them on eBay, and sometimes he comes across some amazing sports-related stuff. Among his recent finds: Broadway Joe on a motorcycle, Frank Gifford whoring for the tobacco biz, Midwestern perfection, and a nice shot of Stan the Man. … eBay stuff: a tremendous vintage baseball jersey; a great old uniform; a truly magnificent set of basketball shorts; a cool old L.A. Angels merch catalog; some nice sporting goods catalogs here, here, and here; Tony the Tiger in a Marlins uniform; some kissing Patriots bobbleheads; a bunch of old hockey decals; and a bunch of 1960s NFL media guides. Meanwhile, can anyone tell me more about what the Rawlings Roundup was? … If you scroll about halfway down on this page, you’ll find a college hockey version of Uni Watch (with thanks to Seth Horowitz). … Super-spectacular 1939 NHL All-Star jersey up for auction here — wow! And scroll down to the bottom of that page for more jaw-dropping beauties (big thanks to Mike Hersh). … Cool video clip here that shows the All Blacks gearing up for a match (with thanks to Caleb Borchers). … “Parkview Baptist School (Baton Rouge, Louisiana) warmed up for Thursday night’s game against Redemptorist in their normal red uniforms,” writes Chris Mycoskie. “But then they came out for the game in black jerseys they’re never worn before — part of a ‘blackout’ thing where all the fans wore black, too.” … Matt Mitchell reports that Temple High School in Texas, has worn the same basic football uni design for at least 75 years — a design that includes two-tone pants. Lots of additional pics here. … This is just too brilliant not to share. … Tremendous little video clip about bare-faced hockey goalies and Jacques Plante here (nice find by Alan Kreit). … Check out the last item on this list. Several years too late, but better than nothing (with thanks to Jeremy Whiting). … 11/11 is almost here, so poppies have been showing up on the lapels of NHL coaches and Hall of Fame inductees, and also on the Arsenal jersey (those unfamiliar with this protocol should look here). … Speaking of the NHL HoF, the Leafs wore the Hall of Fame patch on Saturday, as is their custom for the annual induction-oriented game. … My recent ESPN column on the story behind the MLB logo came at a propitious time for webmaster John Ekdahl, who setting up cornhole league (if you’re unfamiliar with that unfortunately named sport, look here) and designed this logo for it. “Mine works both righty and lefty too, just like the MLB logo,” he says. … Also from John: “Since the start of the ’07 Giants season, my Tiki Barber jersey has sat in my closet, for obvious reasons. Last week I saw it hanging there and thought what a huge waste it was to buy an expensive jersey with an asshole’s name and number on it. Then it hit me: Reverse the 21 to make it a 12 and I have myself a brand new Steve Smith jersey (who I love). Dropped it off today at a specialty shop and they’re doing the whole thing (plus putting Smith’s name on it) for $35. Not bad, huh? Plus I’ll be the proud owner of the only Steve Smith jersey I’ve ever seen without teal in it.” … Still more from John: “Is it just me, or are the Yankees trying to match the blue tones in the new stadium blues to the blue of the uniform? Old Yankee Stadium’s blues were quite a bit brighter than the official color of the Yankees, but the seats and accent colors in the new stadium seem noticeably darker to me. It will be interesting to see what the outfield walls look like.” … Speaking of Yankee Stadium, this is pretty cool. … Mark Kaplowitz attended Thursday night’s Rangers game and saw someone wearing a Messier jersey — or was it a Mes5ier jersey? “Hope he got a refund,” says Mark. … This Korean video clip is the most bizarre baseball “brawl” ever. Can anyone explain? … Nice bit of on-the-spot jersey mending during Saturday’s OSU/Northwestern game (screen grab courtesy of Ben Kelly). … What happened to all those pieces of Shea Stadium? Lots of them are in a warehouse. Excellent photo gallery here (with thanks to Dwayne White). … All of you who complain that you can’t find Hartford Whalers merch should look here, here, and here. … Unusual college football sights from Saturday: UNC in navy, Wake Forest in gold, Tennessee-Martin in orange (with Auburn wearing white at home). … Reprinted from Saturday’s comments: Stewartville High School in Minnesota has some interesting ideas about what constitutes appropriate typography. I hasten to note that the worst-looking designs in real life make the best-looking membership cards, so someone please sign up with this motif, pronto. … Excellent article on collecting game-used hockey sweaters here (thanks to Alan Kreit). … Several notes from Saturday night’s Jones/Calzaghe bout: (1) Jones’s trunks featured little bow ties on each side — never seen anything like that before. (2) Calzaghe’s gloves and mouthpiece featured the colors of the Welsh flag. (3) At first glance, it looks like Calzaghe’s waistband featured his name, but it was actually his web site. … Oh, and there was just a wee bit of blood. … While looking for something else, I came across this shot of Orlando Cepeda with his left sleeve rolled up. … Jeremy Brahm, who lives in Portland, reports that his dentist is wearing these Trail Blazers scrubs. … Also from Jeremy: The Japanese V.League has added its logo to the uniforms of the current men’s and women’s champions. … Jevon Kearse wasn’t the only one making creative use of tape yesterday: Rams defensive back Oshiomogho Atogwe had some serious tape stripes on both arms at the outset of yesterday’s Jets/Rams game. “I was hoping for a better shot,” says new bench coach Phil Hecken, who provided the screen grabs, “but he removed the tape after the first set of downs (possibly due to fineage, possibly due to being toasted a couple times by Favre).” … Turns out the Pirates did wear the MLB 100th-anniversary patch after all — sort of. That shot is from the 1971 World Series. It’s not clear whether the Bucs also wore the patch on their jackets in 1969 (big thanks to Paul and Larry Wiederecht). … The Lions wore throwbacks yesterday and the retro motif even extended to coach Rod Marinelli’s cap and T-shirt. But why did he have to wear the tee tucked in with a pair of pleated dress slacks? Look, Rod, here’s how it works: T-shirts are worn with jeans. And you don’t tuck them in. Jesus fuck, no wonder this team can’t win a freaking game. … Brian Urlacher had helmet decal problems yesterday (with thanks to Mike Chamernik). … Lots of readers noticed that the Giants’ nameplate lettering looked smaller than usual last night, plus a few Jints didn’t have the “ny” logo on their chests. Equipment director Joe Skiba is playing coy for now, but I hope to have more details tomorrow. … New alternate uni for the single-A Rome Braves (thanks to Mickey Seward). … The intersection of stadiums and baking strikes again, this time in the form of a gingerbread Fenway Park. Details here (with thanks to Seth Horowitz). … What is that “Islanders” script that the Isles are wearing on their helmets when donning their throwback uniforms? I don’t recall the Isles using that logo back in the day — or, y’know, ever (good spot by John Muir). … Mark Kluczynski reports that D3 Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute wore black uniforms and an “86” patch on Saturday, in honor of the final game at historic ’86 Field, named after the class of 1886 (which donated funds for the field) and in use since 1912. … The famous Dave Parker smoking photo is apparently being sold on a T-shirt (with thanks to Alan Borock). … HNOB (that’s hyphenated NOB) alert: Mark Versteeg-Lytwyn of the Rocky Mountain Rage (with thanks to Michael Putlack, who also reports that one of his local shops has a Coors Light sign with the old NFL logo and, even weirder, the logo is missing the left column of stars). … The Pens’ powder blue alternate is a hot seller (with thanks to Chris Hilf). … Attention Omar Minaya: There’s a southpaw on the market.

    Unless I’ve somehow forgotten the geography of my native state, Temple High School is located in Temple, Texas — not in Waco. As a teen, I saw them wear those two-toned pants in a game in San Antonio back in the late 1940s.

    According to the Winston-Salem Journal yesterday: Wake Forest wore gold for the first time since they moved from the town of Wake Forest (north of Raleigh) to Winston-Salem in 1956 and Carolina wore dark blue for the first time since the Eisenhower years.

    I don’t know about Tennessee-Martin, but perhaps the orange was a preview of what Auburn (which has identical uniforms) might do one day.

    i thought the same thing, but if you enlarge the pic, you’ll see his left pant blouse is covering the top of his stirrup, and his right stirrup is partially obscured by the dugout…the stripe pattern is white-black-white-red-white-black-white, set on a red stirrup

    btw…anyone know why stan the man has what appears to be a home jersey with away pants in this pic?

    Why is it so weird that his “local shop” would have a neon sign with the old logo? Those things aren’t exactly cheap and I doubt “local shops” replaced their old neon signs just because the league switched to the new logo. Am I missing something here?

    Now the missing left column of stars, THAT’S weird.

    Cornhole is a great tailgate game. If they called it “Beanbag Toss” no self respecting brat eating, beer drinking fan would play! I have made several board sets for friends and family. I recently made a set with a Steeler motif. And my UniWatch education was evident. I put the Steelers’ sleeve striping on the top and bottom of the boards with the helmet logo in the center. I made another set that looked like the Ohio State helmet. Silver with the helmet stripes running down the center. The boards for this game lends itself very nicely to Unicentric themes.

    I was wondering how long it would take for Temple’s two-tone pants to show up here (and yes, Temple High is in Temple, TX).

    Palestine (-steen, not -stein) High in TX (Adrian Peterson’s alma mater) wore two-tone pants for a while, too.

    Paul, if you noticed in the HHOF Game photos, the Montreal Canadiens opted out of wearing the patch. They are the first team to do so since the HHOF Game started in 1999, and I fully commend them for not cluttering their jerseys with a third patch.

    Besides, every game this season is almost a HHOF Game for Les Habitants. :o)

  • Lomion | November 10, 2008 at 12:42 pm |

    DJ Gallo at ESPN had a take on the Lions throwback that was much like mine only better expressed: “It’s kind of fitting that the Lions “throwback” uniforms are really just the same uniforms worn by every youth football team in America that is so embarrassingly awful it can’t wrangle up a single sponsor.”

    I’ll agree with this. I like the Caps jerseys as is- taking away the contrast panels focuses too much on the piping, which alone just looks stupid rather then part of a design.

    I’ll agree with this. I like the Caps jerseys as is- taking away the contrast panels focuses too much on the piping, which alone just looks stupid rather then part of a design.

  • Johnny F. | November 10, 2008 at 6:29 pm |

    From the ESPN article:

    “Here’s your obligatory bit of annual weirdness from Oregon: Remember those bizarro black uniforms they broke out last year, with the illegible type? They appear to have added white and green versions this year. Let’s all treat this like some pathetic trenchcoat geezer who desperately seeks attention by flashing people in the park: Roll your eyes a little and then just continue on with your business.”

    GENIUS.

    Also- I’ve seen the new Tech basketball unis in person, and they actually look really nice. I’m not sure how they will translate on TV, as that’s how must of us see unis, but time will tell. I think it’s a significant upgrade.

    And for the fans of UNC argyle… my alma mater has their own take… :)

    You absolutely have a right to be offended. If someone else thinks your offense-meter needs to be recalibrated a bit, well, that’s their opinion and is just as valid as yours. And not only does the original person have a right to laugh at you for taking offense, the rest of us have a right to ridicule you for being a tightass.

    You don’t pay for this. Don’t like it, that’s your right. But whining about it isn’t going to solve the problem. As you perceive it to be a problem.

    I think the replies to my objection have been rather nasty. I’ve had nothing but praise for Paul’s site on a daily basis; this is the first time I’ve complained about anything. I wasn’t one of those complaining about his political views.

    Yes, it’s his site and he can write whatever he wants. But I just refer back to Dave’s post, #25, “is this really necessary?”

    Anyone on the internet can start a blog and post whatever drivel they wish. Is it wrong to expect a different standard from a professional journalist’s blog, one that has paid membership (of which I am one), and one that also accepts paid advertising? Was it wrong to respectfully ask, “is this necessary?”

    If it is wrong, I’m sure you’ll let me know with more angry flames. No matter. Paul wrote what he wrote. I, and a few others, objected. And that’s the end of it for me. Life goes on…

    Did you see the Caps pre edge jerseys? Utter crap. Why would you go back to that?

    I’m sorry, but I don’t and have not ever seen a problem with the RBK edge. The difference is the fit, and the new fit is a lot better to look at. In the years leading up to it Jerseys were loose to the point of being ridiculous.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll wind up saying it a thousand more times- if your team fucked up the design it’s not RBK’s fault. They didn’t have to use a damned template. Rangers. Bruins. Red wings. Canadians. Did their designs go away from the traditional striping pattern? Bruins returned to it, they previously had the stupid little half stripes.

    The RBK edge jersey did not kill the traditional jersey look. the hemline is stupid, yes, but it’s really a minor thing. What it did do is give teams an excuse to do something new.Only a few teams actually had to make changes. However, because of the desire for a quick buck, most changed anyway.

    If you don’t like the design, fine. But it’s not the fault of the cut of the uniform. However, know that you’re in the minority on not liking that design. Most people I’ve talked to (on hockey boards, natch) consistently rate it as one of the best in the NHL.

    But I’m sick of people saying the RBK edge design sucks because the team created designs suck.

    I’m not going to get into to the whole taking the lord’s name in vain debate, but whenever something like this comes up, both sides of the argument invoke freedom of speech, and it really annoys me.
    You have no freedom of speech in private forums; the only people who have the power to (unconstitutionally) restrict your freedom of speech are government actors. Therfore, Paul deleting posts he doesn’t like isn’t restricting anyone’s freedom of speech, becaues as far as I know, he’s doesn’t work for the government and this site isn’t funded by the government. In the same vain, the people who object to what he says aren’t attempting to restrict Paul’s freedom of speech because they don’t have that power. So can we please stop using it as an argument?

    To add to your ESPN column, Northern Iowa has changed their men’s basketball uni’s slightly. At least for the home uni’s. I haven’t seen the roads yet. Same design…white. But everything that was purple last year (stripes, piping) is now yellow, and vice versa. Also, last year the name on the front said Panthers, now it says Northern above the number and Iowa below.

    Ironically, the uniforms aren’t that spectacular from the Olympic scene. Locally, they might be more impressive. There were some cool features, though – Paul linked this one in his ticker.

    That’s nothing. If a “good” season is defined as a 10 win year, just how many good seasons have they had since 1976? Hint: Dunkin’ sells ’em. Of course they did have three in a row (74-76) so what did they do when the coach went 7-7 in 1977? Fire him and bring in Bud Wilkinson.

    The evolution of field hockey unis is actually pretty interesting…starting as a long skirt and sweater cuz it wasn’t appropriate for women to wear pants, then continually shortening, then a brief switch to shorts (at least in my area), then a fairly immediate change back to skirts. Basically, what started as society saying”you have to be proper” turned into players saying “we’re proud of our skirts”

    Well yeah, that the more recognized futility, but my point was it merely scratches the surface.

    This is one of the worst games I’ve ever seen. Entertaining yes, but who wants to win? Can the officials f-up anymore? Stay tuned!

    There are two players on the whole field (#13 & #81) the rest should be in Saskatchewan.

    [quote comment=”299227″]After reading about the home plate moving from one Yankee Stadium to another, I decided to check out Yankee Stadium on Google Earth, just for kicks. I discovered two interesting things: one, there is a game happening in the picture, judging by the people in the stands, and two, I can’t find the new Yankee Stadium. Can someone familiar with the area check it out and assure me that the view is old, i.e. before they started building the new one?[/quote]

    i just looked at google maps, and the new yankee stadium is located on the land where that large track is and where those cars are parked. it’s definitely an onld image because construction preparation hadn’t even begun. you can compare the google maps image to this one:
