The Buffalo Bills wore their new uniforms for the first time last night in a preseason game versus the Chicago Bears, in what was just a brilliantly played four quarters of football. In all seriousness, what an tremendous improvement. The full gallery is available here.
Last names have made a return to UConn’s football uniforms. Head Coach Randy Edsall had them removed in 2004 and after making the jump to Maryland this year, he has removed player names from Maryland’s uniforms this year. We sense a pattern.
Zack Greinke was asked to pitch-hit last night and strolled up to the batter’s box wearing the wrong jersey. Instead of the standard alternate top, Greinke wore today’s “Bierbrauer” jersey which is a special jersey worn to celebrate German heritage in Wisconsin. Brewers Manager Ron Roenicke said he was not aware Greinke was wearing the wrong jersey because he was wearing a windbreaker in the dugout. “I had no idea,” Roenicke said. “It was blue, and that’s all it looked like to me. I didn’t know until one of the guys said something. He didn’t know [either].” Full story and video available here.
Shortly after the United States entered World War II, President Roosevelt created the Office of War Information (OWI), whose purpose was releasing war news and promoting patriotism to America’s news outlets through films and photos. Of these thousands of photos that were taken between 1939 and 1944 of the American War effort on the home front, nearly 1,600 were taken in full color and they are fantastic. Check them out here.
