On the Left: Nike Combat Uni for Plymouth State

13863759_Thanksgiving  c1928_ 300 Years.jpg

I’m still under quarantine, which totally sucks, but Kirsten and I are trying to make the best of it. We’ll be roasting a capon and serving it up with some apple/cherry/walnut stuffing, green beans, cranberry relish, root vegetables, port-braised onions, apple pie, and maybe one or two things I’m forgetting. Like they always say, starve a cold, feed the chickenpox.

Here’s wishing everyone a swell holiday, especially my brother and my Mom — I’d be with you if I could, and I’ll be thinking of you. Have some extra dark meat for me. — Paul

    Get well soon.

    Hey, there’s a parade on WGN! Should we have been watching for rpm in his turkey suit (accompanied by the pineapple) in Car #4?

    Speaking of the Uni Watch Winter Classic, likely attendance already soared to the mid-20’s, including brave souls coming to the Twin Cities from Milwaukee, Chicago and Missouri.

    And, again, so there’s no misunderstanding, we aren’t playing in either of the pond hockey tourneys, just checking out the unis, etc., so we can say we did.

    Here’s the background…(scroll down aways; look for the pond hockey image)

    Ooops, my bad.
    I’ve been talking about the UFL Championship Game tomorrow night.
    Isn’t tomorrow NIGHT, it’s tomorrow AFTERNOON, 2 pm PST.
    Tuskers vs. Locos. You have nothing in teams colors, you say? No sweat, just make guacamole.

    They were scheduled to wear them, but supposedly will be wearing their current set after all, having won one-in-a-row in them.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it; to those who don’t, either through circumstance or choice, Happy, er, Thursday! Today is the day we dust off those Turkey Day traditions: shopping for a bloodiamond to prove one’s love, ordering an Emory Cat online and gorging on giblet pizza.
    And football: for today only I am a Raiders fan; am frankly ambivalent about leones/empacadores; and don’t get nfltv. So, instead of rooting against the giants, i’ll play the trump card and watch Addidas vs. Nike.
    I’d like to thank each and every one of you who comments and especially thank Paul for a site that is informative, educational and fun. Sorry there is a pox upon you and godspeed on your recovery. Also a tip of the Hatlo hat to LI.

    Please, please, please, if you consume potent potables, do it responsibly, and if you can’t do that, don’t drive. Want you all to be around tomorrow.
    Gotta go work on my honey-glazed carrots(my assignment to bring to mass-quantities consumption). Ha, I found a recipe that includes Brandy!

    I’m thankful I’ll be at my sister’s house. Since she’s one of those funny people who think we should sit and talk instead of watch football, I get to miss that one. I think I’d rather root for the Browns than one of those two.

    On the other hand, Packers/Lions is just right. Gonna enjoy the first half then hit the road.

    Everybody has their own preferences, so here’s mine: Don’t pair jerseys and pants of different colors with each other, unless the pants are gold/yellow or silver/grey (Tampa’s pewter qualifies). The Bears’ orange jerseys are nice, but only with white pants.

    The \’Boys always wear the throwback blue jerseys with white shoulder yokes on Thanksgiving.

    Is there a reason why the AFL Legacy program has been strictly used against other AFL Legacy teams… and the Cowboys? The first time Kansas City wore them were against Dallas, and now Oakland is wearing theirs today.

    Also, just throwing this out there: During the pregame show, they aired a little piece on NFL players volunteering passing out food for the needy and such, and most wore their jerseys. I noticed Terrell Owens wearing the Bills throwback uni. Apparently even TO is classy enough to know a good look when he sees it. Maybe the Buffalo organization should take notice.

    So white meat’s for suckers?

    Well, I didn’t even get a chance at sucking because my mother-in-law (who is a terrible cook) was cooking the bird and it wasn’t ready until after we were finished with dinner. So I had some traditional Turkey Day ham.

    I tried a bit of the turkey a couple hours later and it was vile. I had to spit it out.

    Other than that, it was a pretty good Thanksgiving, except for my sister-in-law who kept bitching because the pies my wife made weren’t low-fat. “I don’t understand why you WOULDN’T make them low fat.” Ummm… how about so that they’re palatable, as opposed to your “tiramisu” that nobody but you has touched?

    Again, happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I’m truly thankful that this forum exists so that I can share my thoughts on all things uni- and meat-related. And also for foaming soap. Oh, and that my wife’s grandmother upgraded to HD on the kitchen TV. In years past it was football on the 13″ black and white set with fuzzy reception.

    By the way, I went with Padres stirrups over beige socks for the occasion.

    Well, I didn’t even get a chance at sucking because my mother-in-law (who is a terrible cook) was cooking the bird and it wasn’t ready until after we were finished with dinner. So I had some traditional Turkey Day ham.

    I tried a bit of the turkey a couple hours later and it was vile. I had to spit it out.

    Other than that, it was a pretty good Thanksgiving, except for my sister-in-law who kept bitching because the pies my wife made weren’t low-fat. “I don’t understand why you WOULDN’T make them low fat.” Ummm… how about so that they’re palatable, as opposed to your “tiramisu” that nobody but you has touched?[/quote]

    this is not unlike another famous Thanksgiving episode…do you remember the story of john alden, and priscilla mullins, and captain miles standish?

    Delicious Thanksgiving. Amazing desserts. Now I just want to know this: how can a football team with blue and orange as its colors and a bucking stallion as its mascot, arrive at a uniform that hideously wastes—thoroughly— all three of these sweet building blocks. Booooo, Broncos. No turkey for you.

    [quote comment=”363497″]I’d forgotten what a complete blowhard Matt Millen is in the booth. Miserable as an announcer, miserable as a GM — a complete waste of space.[/quote]

    Yes, and ABC and ESPN sent him to do Michigan games three or four times this year. Just a giant FU to the State of Michigan from ABC/ESPN.

    As someone who has done football stats in the past (and hopefully again in the future). I normally love numbers on the helmet, but on Texas above the Longhorn it just doesn’t look right. I think it might just be too busy.

    Absolutely. When they did that way back when, the helmet numbers were just a bit smaller, I think. Didn’t look as cluttered that way. Still cluttered, but not SO cluttered.

    Matt Millen was just talking about how good the umpire is in the Giants-Broncos game. They gave him a closeup, with the pom-pom things on the brim of his cap, and Millen said, “See his hat? Those are the microphones we have on him.”

    Yup. Beats the 2nd one by far.

    So, what country’s military are the Texas A&M Corps associated with? Mexico? Argentina? Who supplies them with those dapper 1930’s olive drab uni’s? Is that wool? You’d think a Clark Gable mustache would be required.

    So long, Bob Sheppard. Enjoy your retirement.

    By the way, class move by Derek Jeter to still use his voice when coming to the plate.

    I think those are Hugo Chavez’ specials. you’re right… those guys need a Ricky Ricardo mustache to complete the scene.
