Looks Like Another Long Night for Mrs. Claus…

Picture 3.png

… but that’s what happens when you shack up with a guy like Santa, who, as I’ve been saying for years, is a bad seed. Serves both of them right.

Anyway: Ho-ho-ho and all that, boys and girls. As promised, here are the 32 winners of the Uni Watch holiday raffle:

1. Brian Russell
2. Jeff Apple
3. Rob Bindeman
4. Dan Luther
5. Hugh McBride
6. Petter Schinkai
7. Matt Gamertsfelder
8. David Rosenthal
9. Nicholas Schiavo
10. René Zepeda
11. Michael C. Wilson
12. Benjamin Bonnet
13. Jeremiah McElwain
14. Jason Tirotta
15. Austin Jones
16. Bob Andrews
17. Jon Silber
18. Nicole Haase
19. Peter Thompson
20. Charles Neiswender
21. Daniel King
22. Kenneth Clark
23. James Wortham

26. Andrew Matthews
27. Taylor Davidson
28. Jordan Rose
29. Jason Dunmire
30. Matthew Hackethal
31. Kyle Shannon
32. Jeff Pudlo

The top winner, Brian Russell, gets his choice of the 32 prize lots listed here; the next person on the list gets his choice of the 31 remaining prizes; and the person after that gets to choose from the 30 remaining prizes; and so on.

All winners should e-mail me to claim their prizes. When doing so, please (a) provide your shipping address, and (b) observe the following protocol: If you’re the second-place winner, provide two prize choices, in order of preference; the third-place winner should provide three prize choices, in order of preference; and so on. Basically, whatever number you are on the list, that’s the number of prize choices you should provide me with.

For those choosing among the batting gloves (remember there are 15 separate prizes consisting of two pairs of gloves), please indicate which two pairs you want from these photos of the extra-large, large, and medium gloves (just indicate “Large, top row, third from left,” or whatever applies). I’ll do my best to honor specific glove requests but I might end up having to substitute a different pair depending on people’s choices.

I think that’s it. Comments will be open today; site will be closed tomorrow. Have a happy and a merry, and I hope each and every one of you finds yourself under the mistletoe with someone who’s wearing striped socks.

    Good morning. Merry Christmas.

    I miss the Blue-Gray Game. At least there was always ONE football game on Christmas Day.

    Okay…so who got what from Santa?

    A Man U Rooney kit, complete with failing AIG logo on front.

  • Ricko | December 25, 2008 at 8:51 am |

    Seeing as Christmas usually comes with more than a dollop of nostalgia, I thought I’d post these today.

    Wheaties, sports, unis in comic book style…ah, the days of kidhood. These all were outside back covers of Lone Ranger comic books…

    So I bought myself a old Columbus Clippers fitted hat for Christmas.

    I love ships especially clippers and most especially clippers from landlocked Ohio cities.

    Either way that’s my uniform gift. (My sister got a Brett Favre T-shirt too bad he wont be on the team next year).

    That’s a very dude-centric raffle list. 31-0-1 with #10 under review.. :)

    I got a 1955 Roy Campanella card, a Nationals blue road cap (blue and gold MLB logo, weird), and the 1977 McDonalds Super Bowl History series I mentioned a week or so ago.

    And, peripherally pop culture Uni-related, I got an ‘expendable’ t-shirt

  • Jordan | December 25, 2008 at 10:39 am |

    Merry Christmas morning to the UW-verse — best holiday sporting tradition know to few in these parts: the Boxing Day Cricket Test from Melbourne, this year featuring South Africa versus the Aussies. Radio feed available online from the ABC, Video from some friendly sources on justin.tv.

  • Johnny O | December 25, 2008 at 11:09 am |

    I bought myself a pair of New Balance 993’s for Christmas! But all I want for Christmas is for Ted Thompson to be fired. My fiancee and her family doesn’t open presents until like noon! What did I get myself into?

    Happy holidays to you and yours!

  • David Murphy | December 25, 2008 at 11:28 am |

    Johnny O, the 993’s were my dream gift. What color? I settled for a new pair of black 992’s. And the EXPENDABLE shirt is hilarious, TD! Hope everyone has a great day.

  • Dan King | December 25, 2008 at 11:30 am |

    merry christmas everybody. nice video Phil.

    and onto the uni’s, did anyone else think that notre dame looked strange with NOBs last night?

  • Chad | December 25, 2008 at 11:35 am |

    #18 is a female as well, I’m assuming.

    Most uni-related gifts for me would be Carl Edwards Nascar cap and “Steelers Equipment” white sideline hot jacket.

  • stirpey | December 25, 2008 at 12:19 pm |

    HEY! Leave it to me to not read UW on the day of my piece! First off, Merry Christmas to everyone! Second, if anyone wants a tee shirt, email me your name, address, and tee shirt size to

    brandon.stirpe@gmail.com and we’ll send some out on a first come first serve basis (consider it my gift to fellow Uniwatcher’s)!

    Third, Eric was amazing to work with and we really did not dictate anything to anyone. He just wanted us to get the best logo for our company and we needed to do it rather quickly because we had a budget to keep to! So we needed quality in a short period of time. And I agree, it’s the company who makes their logo recognizable and my father and brother are working very hard to make that happen!

    I’m glad everyone enjoyed the piece. My favorite was the embroidered concept Virginia Lee sent us, I thought that was pretty cool.

    Anyways, like i said, email me if you would like a tee (remember, first come first serve). Enjoy the holidays, and hope everyone has a great afternoon!

    I posted on today and yesterday’s comments, sorry! Just wanted to make sure everyone saw my post.

    Merry Christmas, and I have yet to open any gifts. we had an xmas party last night and we just woke up!

  • JTH | December 25, 2008 at 12:33 pm |

    Season’s greetings and Merry Christmas to you all.

    So the house is a disaster, and that’s just from Santa’s gifts. We left the gifts we got last night from my wife’s family out in the car. More to come today — heading over to my parents’ house in a couple hours! I’m actually glad I’m going to work tomorrow.

    OK, so I got beer, pajamas, a sweater, several pairs of pants, a guitar, a Winter Classic toque, and (along the same lines as TD’s “expendable” shirt) some BSG propaganda posters.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Everyone knows why Santa & Mrs. Claus don’t have any kids of their own, right?

    I posted this late last night, and since it’s pretty cool, I’ll post it again.

    happy holidays to everyone!

  • interlockingtc | December 25, 2008 at 1:23 pm |

    Ricko, great picture of the North Stars and Seals, awash in lovely kelly green and yellow. I believe that is Jude Drouin (sp?) of the Stars in the faceoff. I remember the sideburns.

  • JTH | December 25, 2008 at 1:24 pm |

    Great movie for spotting anachronisms an historical inaccuracies on HBO Family right now: “Everyone’s Hero.”

    Yankee Stadium and Wrigley Field had lights in 1932?
    Bobbleheads in 1932?
    Babe Ruth had his first 50-HR season in 1929?
    Why the hell is that newsreel footage so grainy when it’s only two days old?

  • Robert in Dallas | December 25, 2008 at 1:45 pm |

    My best gift was the Nebraska Football Vault, the existence of which was kindly brought to my attention by the good people at Uni Watch.

    Next best gift: Eric Piatkowski game-used Chicago Bulls (Stags) throwback warmup. Example here.

    Remember the “Real Men of Genius” spot which honored the sports talk radio guy who didn’t know his subject? I had a flashback last night.

    I was driving home from the Christmas Eve service at church, and had the XM on. ESPN was doing the Notre Dame thrashing of Hawai’i, so I flipped around in search of other sports. I found Sporting News Radio, where the substitute host (from Tampa, BTW; I don’t know his name) was going off on Notre Dame’s uniforms — railing against the “desecration” of NOBs. “Notre Dame has NEVER had names on their jerseys! It’s just WRONG!” Uh … maybe he should research a bit….

    Merry Christmas everyone!!! I just want to thank everyone for the time and effort they put into this site. From the creator, to the random message board personalities, this is one of my favorite “nooks” on the web. I hope everyone has a happy and healthy holiday season!

    Now, having said that…I received all sorts of uni-related gifts from my loved ones!

    The one at the top of the list: A charcoal grill, that is shaped like a football helmet (complete with facemask..which you use to lift the helmet lid up). Pretty good size too (Would fit a good 8 steaks, easy!) I’ll get some pics up once I customize the logos etc. Hooray!

    Also received a prank BLACK KRod Mets shirt (I went on a rant about the black a couple weeks ago over dinner)…a White home Mets authentic (Pedro…he cracks me up..this one is also partly an inside joke). And naturally, a Shea Stadium comemerative shot glass.

    A few more things, but those are what stands out regarding everything Uni.

    Merry Christmas!!!

  • =bg= | December 25, 2008 at 3:20 pm |

    This wasn’t the only thing that raised a few eyebrows. There were the obligatory So-and-So “got leied” references that come with most games in Hawaii. And Dave Pasch also had a good one with about 30 seconds left in the third quarter, when introducing a story:

    “We’re talking about June Jones and what he did for this program.” (Producer shows shot of Pearl Harbor Memorial.) “And well, there’s Pearl Harbor.”

    Andre Ware, his analyst, also said Joe Montana was suffering from hypothermia during the infamous Chicken Soup bowl game. (It was actually the flu.)

    The good news for Ware was he dropped that little “fact” with about 7:30 remaining in the 4th quarter, when the game was well out of hand and most of the audience had turned out.

    I got a robe. It’s purple. I’ve never liked purple, but I actually requested it. I wanted purple because of Hawkeye. Remember when he was writing his will at the front, and he left his robe to Winchester. I’m not a fan of royalty, but it was mentioned in Hawk’s note. I like my new robe a lot. However, the purple pair of Vans shall be returned.

    Ricko,

    I’m still Jonesing without my Christmas Football ….

    Why doesn’t someone just run reruns of classic NFL games, not just the championships but let’s say 1960’s games that were competitive or featuring competitive teams.

    I’m in New Orleans and I would love to see a full game broadcast from the Saints early years – despite their not often being competitive.

    How about some 1960’s to mid 1970’s games featuring contenders, or even good playoff games?

    Even the reruns of “This Week in the NFL” would suffice. I never see them anymore, but 4-5 years ago they were on often.

    I remember one Saturday 3 years ago when I saw a Notre Dame year end wrap-up show from 1974 with Rusty Lisch QBing the Domers before Joe Montana took over.

    Be sure to say “it’s the wrong size” when you switch it for a blue one.
    I scored a Olympique de Marseille soccer jersey. Looks like this. (Yes, it’s a year old, but it was a $20 Burlington Coat Factory find, and it’s a first-rate Adidas Clima-Cool top. Nice colors, I’m more than happy.)[/quote]

    If you’re going for an O’M kit, it HAS to be this one:

    Pure gold.

    Agreed, the argyles are gorgeous, and I love soccer jerseys with collars, but I have what I have, and I’m OK with that.

    Craig Sager said that the Cavs wanted to wear the blue alts instead. He had the white home Cavs jersey with the snowflake that they’re not wearing.[/quote]

    i also noticed the cavs and the wixards werent wearing their christmas day jerseys with the snow patch. Craig Sager actually said it was because LeBron was debuting his new shoe and the blue alts looked better with it than with the home whites. heres the shoe:

    what a conceited prick LeBron is. He makes both teams wear different jerseys (and skip out on wearing jerseys that were specially made just for that game) just because he is debuting a new shoe. nice.

    and as a side note, got the new sox alt hat (hanging sox) and blue away alt today. Also a throwback bruins sweater and pats hoodie with the old pat the patriot logo.

    I got a 1969 Sports Illustrated featuring Ted Williams in Senators garb on the front cover (photos inside are amazing), and a Washington Federals pennant. There was a book under the tree for my father that I will be scanning some photos from to show our leader in hopes he will nudge the rest of the astute UWers into purchasing it.

    Merry Holidays to all.

    Belated Merry Christmas to everyone…too busy yesterday to get to the computer. Happy Boxing Day to my friends north of the border.

    I didn’t get any uni-related gifts as far as clothing is concerned but I did get the Steelers Super Bowl DVD set with the full length broadcasts of all five games.

    Paul, I know you’re probably off the grid today, but I would totally be willing to disect these DVDs in a similar manner to what I did with my 1979 World Series discs earlier this year, doing screen captures and writing a guest post if you like.

    That the cover with Williams in the red hat with the navy pinstripe jersey? One of those spring training combos (new hat with last year’s jerseys and pants). Too bad, I thought it looked better than the plain whites they actually wore when the season opened.

    Here you go, DIY a hat…

    or a sweatshirt…

    Always loved that logo.

    I failed to mention in my previous post: I’m glad I’m not the only one that misses the Blue-Gray game!!!!!

    I know that Sager said that, but the picture Paul posted was the Cavs blue uni with the snow flake, so your whole Lebron’s a prick rant doesn’t hold any water

    I didn’t watch NBA yesterday (except for a glimpse of the red-green Blazers-Mavs), did ANYONE wear the snowflake patch?
