It’s in the Bag

all three bags.jpg

New ESPN coming soon. Much of its content will be familiar to many of you, but at least one aspect of it — an aspect hinted at by the photo shown above — will definitely be new. Here’s the link.

Picture 1.png

It’s that damn “Gotcha!” journalism again, just like Sarah Palin said: Yesterday’s Ticker mention of Steve Slaton’s peeling helmet decal prompted the following note from Texans Asst. Equipment Director Christian Snell:

Damn you caught me! I noticed the decal right away when Steve was on the field. As soon as he came off after that series, I went over and grabbed his helmet. I tried to smooth out the decal and get it to adhere, but the backing had apparently rubbed on the ground and was covered with dirt and grass. As much as I tried, it just wouldn’t hold. All I could think about the whole time was “That bastard on Uni Watch is going to see this and it’s going to be on the web site tomorrow!”

I considered putting on a fresh decal right there on the sideline, hoping you wouldn’t notice, but I was afraid a sudden change of possession would occur and he would run out there before I could correct it and have only one decal. Now that would be embarrassing!

Anyway, thanks for keeping me on my toes and pointing out my failings as an equipment manager, hahaha.

I have nothing but respect for Christian and other equipment managers, and I think it’s kind of sad that they primarily think of Uni Watch as a watchdog looking to pounce on their mistakes. Au contraire, Christian — you’re one of the uniform world’s unsung heroes. We all know things like partially peeled decals are gonna happen here and there, no matter what you do. Just because I report that something happened doesn’t mean I’m blaming anyone — no harm, no foul.

Uni Watch News Ticker: Check this out — you can build your own paper model of Wrigley Field! (Thanks, Kirsten.) … The second item on this Q&A page has some good info on UNC’s argyle design (with thanks to Chris Warfford). … The South African rugby team is getting a new badge (courtesy of James Atherton). … Not uni-related, but this is pure genius. … Yesterday I asked why Texas A&M was wearing a jersey patch last Thursday. Full explanation here (with thanks to Andrew Joseph). … Reprinted from yesterday’s comments: Advertising in public space has now encroached to high school math tests. Yes, I think it’s an outrage, and no, I don’t think the money is worth it. … Numerical note from Tris Wykes, who writes: “When longtime NHL goaltender Marc Denis was demoted last season from Tampa Bay to its AHL farm club, the Norfolk Admirals, he came out wearing a number that didn’t match the number on his mask. The funny thing is, no other player was assigned No. 30 and Denis switched to No. 39 with the Admirals after that first game. Perhaps he felt No. 30 was just his NHL number.” … The Devil wears Prada black. … Speaking of Citi Field, Phil wonders if these seat ads “will be as hard to remove as the ones at Enron Field were.” … More from Phil: The Hornets unveiled their New Orleans Bucs throwbacks, the Fort Wayne Tin Caps unveiled their uni set (further details here), WVU will wear white at home this weekend, the Princeton Rays will have new uniforms next season, and so will the Australian Navy. … Small uni-related note buried in the middle of this story about the U. of Vermont’s newly revived football program: “Two years ago, when Robert Corran, Vermont’s athletic director, first heard that a student was talking about reviving football, he thought it would be a struggle. ‘I remember somebody asked me if we had any football equipment left,’ Corran, a former football player and coach, said. ‘And I said: “Not anything you’d want. They don’t use single-bar face masks anymore”’” (with thanks to Stan Olechowski)… As a 49ers fan, I find this pretty damn scary (blame Todd Davis). … Yesterday’s Andy Hyman drawings inspired Terence Kearns to send along 10 hockey drawings he did back in high school. I’ve grouped them into a slideshow here. … Hadyn Green uploaded the new Super 14 rugby jerseys here. “They’ve got some interesting details, like the embossed print on the front. And this is the first year they have official away jerseys. You might like the socks too.” … Reprinted from last night’s comments: Plaxico is having an effect on merch policy.

    The hand me down is a possibility. Didn’t Paul say at one point that the TB Rays were going to get new Road uni’s in 2009. The the 2008 road uni’s had the RAYS on them to help with the rebranding.

  • Beardface | December 3, 2008 at 9:56 am |

    Interesting that the Princeton Rays spokesman would describe the team’s new trim color as “Carolina blue”… I thought the TB Rays took extreme caution to avoid that, especially considering arguably the most famous team in their farm system (arguably more famous than the Rays themselves) is located in Durham, NC, home of the Duke Blue Devils…

    The South African rugby team is getting a new badge (courtesy of James Atherton).

    They’ll be doing it like Australia (on the left-hand side of their jersey, the Australians have the national coat of arms; on the right, the Wallaby logo with the Southern Cross).

    It happened to Citizens Bank Park, which opened in 2004 (Which used this http://www.massacade... as their logo” logo then, then in 2005 Citizens Bank changed their logo to this http://www.reba.net/... ) so they had to change all the signs, cupholders and everything for that as well.

    Mr. Snell has had his hands full with Slaton this year. Slaton’s right side helmet decal was peeling at the end of the Texans vs. Browns game on 11/23. (I sent Paul my feeble attempt at a screen grab pic that, alas, did not make the Ticker the following Monday. Sorry, I don’t know how to include it here.)

    I bet Snell and his ilk have good stories about certain players who always just seem predisposed to equipment issues and oddities.

    Those days are pretty much over. Perhaps they could get BP tops but the gamers would most likely be new. With game-use items at an absolute premium it’s a better bottom line decision to sell the big league stuff and just buy sets for all the minor leaguers. I know the Class A club (Vero Beach) had exactly the same style of the big club (from 2007) but they were made by Rawlings. Clubs like to spread some business around to the non-licensed manufactures as well.

    When the P-Rays take the field, look to see the number placement on the back. If it is high enough not to be able to put a last name on the back, then it’s new. They are not going to renumber a jersey just because of odd positioning.

    Whenever mascot names come up, I need to throw my hat into the ring. I love my alma mater Providence College’s mascot the Friars. It’s not your run of the mill Wildcats, Tigers, Cardinals, etc. As far as I know, we are the only D-I school with that nickname. I also love our school colors of black, silver and white, which are also somewhat unique.

    Yeah, this came up some time back. There was some debate whether you could make something with that logoed fabric they sell in stores and in turn sell your creation. IIRC, one of our legal experts gave it the o-k-do-k.

  • Rob Brown | December 3, 2008 at 12:04 pm |

    Here is an obscure question for someone. In the mid-1980’s the Southern Miss Golden Eagles football team were rewarded with “pride” stickers of an eagle. This would have been in the years just before Brett Favre played or maybe his freshman year. Is there anyone out there in Uniwatch land who might know what this eagle looked like? And as a secondary question, what about any pictures of the football team in the 1985-1988 years (other than the Brett Favre ones which are easily found). More specifically, pictures of the team in Black jersey’s with white pants.

    I was just thinking that when I saw your post. Quite right. The reason it came up is because I noticed the other day when they played that LSU’s pant stripes have five stripes and don’t match the three-stipe action on the helmet and jerseys.

    Same with U. Miami’s weird designs not matching what’s on the helmet.

    To follow up on the posts the other day — if you look at Vermont’s stripes, and make one of those green stripes navy blue, you have the 1970s Notre Dame basketball striping. (Can’t find any pics.)

    Add purple and it’s the Hornets from last year.

    UTC vs OKLA

    The University of Tenn. – Chattanooga football team wears a very dark Old Gold that is the best color Old Gold jerseys that I have seen in years.
    They wore that jersey against Oklahoma in an early season road game, where the Sooners wore their home Maroon jerseys, which should qualify as a color vs. color jersey game.

    I’d love to know Where UTC gets their uniforms, as many others, including the New Orleans Saints, should use that shade of Old Gold.

    MORE TEAMS SHOULD WEAR THEM …

    ich yellow (sometimes called “Athletic Gold”) jerseys, as well as true Old Gold jerseys, look pretty good on many teams. Old Gold looks particularly good when worn outdoors. I always thought that the Saints should have worn Old Gold jerseys, particularly for road games outdoors when the home team wears White.

    Imagine the Saints in true Old Gold helmets and jerseys, with White Pants. That would look great !!! How about LSU with Rich Yellow jerseys WITH THE REAL UCLA STRIPING (!!!), with regular yellow helmets and white pants.

    The problem in recent years are that Nike/Russell/etc. no longer offers true Old Gold uniforms, and instead has forced Gold wearing teams to dress instead in “Vegas Gold”, which is 3/4ths closer to White than Old Gold. The result is that “Vegas Gold” can not be worn as a dark jersey. I consider that color to be the equivilent of weakened Cat Piss.

    [quote comment=”303315″]Here is an obscure question for someone. In the mid-1980’s the Southern Miss Golden Eagles football team were rewarded with “pride” stickers of an eagle. This would have been in the years just before Brett Favre played or maybe his freshman year. Is there anyone out there in Uniwatch land who might know what this eagle looked like? And as a secondary question, what about any pictures of the football team in the 1985-1988 years (other than the Brett Favre ones which are easily found). More specifically, pictures of the team in Black jersey’s with white pants.[/quote]

    I don’t have what you are looking for, but I vividly remember Brett Favre’s first game for Southern Miss where he lit up Tulane for a decisive win in Hattiesburg.

    The USM Eagles wore great true Old Gold jerseys that day, Brett Farve was probably a frshman. Towards the end of his career the USM uniform almost eliminated the Gold from it altogther, being pretty much an austere Black & White outfit with maybe a gold stripe or decal on the helmet.

    speaking as a pitt student… we missed the mark with those. but just barely. make the white “pitt” and numbers blue, like on our home unis, and trim them black and white and those would look sweeeeeeet as alternates…

    football team got it right:

    (thats the best pic i could find)

    if they did that with the moniker and the numbers i’d say we’d have a successful first bball alt set in years.

    Teebz,
    Don’t know if you’re out there this late, but I caught the blog today and really liked it. As a Stars fan, I hated the decision to sign Avery. He hurts the game, and he doesn’t belong in an organization of Mike Modano, Brendam Morrow, and Marty Turco. Go down the roster and everyone’s classy. Avery doesn’t fit.

    look at the notes section on the bottom,
    i don’t think it would be called logo creep, but the alfredson/spezza/heatley line being named after a promotion needs some kind of negative term. it’s not okay[/quote]
    How about promo creep? Same term could apply to the Sharks “Black Armor” 3rd jerseys (there is no promotional logo creep, but the jerseys are a tie in to the Seagate Black Armor hard drive).[/quote]
    And the Texans’ “Battle Reds.” Apparently once Coca-Cola “themed,” now associated with Halliburton, IIRC.
