I'm sure there will be more to come but any additional news will get its own post. And speaking of new posts, tomorrow is Friday the 13th so how could I not try to scare you a little bit? Stay tuned for a Freak Out Friday of some sort. I'm not a big fan of pink in general, but for a one-time thing, I think it looks quite good in moderated amounts, like the Reign. I actually think that without the shin-ribbons it'd be a Cheap NHL Sabres jerseyfor alternate use occasionally. The solid pink from the Bulls doesn't cut it for me though. I realize it's for a good cause and all that, but almost completely pink is a little too much for me. Is there not a way to honor breast cancer with all we have, without looking like 'pansies on ice'? When is the NFL going to sport pink uni's and helmets? wearing pink is different entirely if its for a good cause. i personally don't think they look like "pansies on ice". they're doing it for a good cause and i see nothing wrong with that. now if you think the NHL is immune to that stripy nonsense. The following night, Montreal Canadiens stepped out against the Boston Bruins wearing something that went out of style nearly 100 years ago. Sadly the Wings did lose that night, the players hated them along with the fans. The Pups were messing with out guys, but their jerseys look ugly as well with the baby blue and whatever that logo is supposed to be. They did this again this year in the NHL and we won this time, but the Cheap nhl hockey jersey still sucked.
As long as there are trying to check one another through the glass its hard to call them pansies. And Ron, those scratch and sniff patterns have already been put to use on all the new NHL uniforms. If you scratch the Reebok logo it smells like money. you say the goalie pads looking goofy? In action it looked like the laundry guys accidentally mixed a few red socks in with the laundry and the team had to either skate naked or in the pink washed home MLB Boston Red Sox Jersey. I totally wish I was kidding. The Wings actually took the ice against the Bloomington PrairieThunder looking like this. I think I need to set up a new section of Icethetics. Worst. Game-worn jerseys. Coming soon. on that same night, the NHL was humiliating itself as well when for no apparent reason the team from Las Vegas decided to stick its nose into the issues with the Illinois governor nearly a continent away. I told you about this last month and posted mock-ups of the specialty jerseys for Rod Blagojevich Night. HockeyLister: its the jersey that the Habs work in like 1913-14 or something like that. with it being the centennial year they are wearing throwbacks for certain games. a fun fact about those jerseys though: during the time the Habs were wearing those, the original Ottawa Senators were wearing similar jerseys. well Ottawa complained to the League about it and how they cant tell whos who when they play each other and how its a rip off, etc. well the League said that when Ottawa and Montreal play one another, Montreal must wear a different jersey. the prison jerseys remind me of a retarded hockey version of Longest Yard. the black and white jerseys to look similar to the Blackhawks original jerseys from the 20's. the Jersey the arose from this was the red MLB Phillies Jersey design that is currently worn in Montreal.
The problem with the habs unis are the thinness of the stripes combined with the colors. in black and white, the sweaters don't look bad. the senators barber pole doesn't look bad, but those. I hate corporate advertising on philadelphia flyers jersey Jaromir Jagr, but at least Kalamazoo went all out and did the look correctly. as for the wranglers...is it bad that i actually like the monochrome stripes in a very old school way? I would not be opposed to a minor league team wearing something like that full time. those are hard on the eyes, with the exception of the solid blue box for the back numbers, which were surprisingly easy to read. But I want to see more pictures of that yellow ice. I've played on rinks where the creases were yellow but an entirely yellow rink sounds disgusting. Isn't there a US college that plays on a blue football field? Boise State I think. It would be so weird playing on a ice surface that isn't white. I figured the Mexican Primera soccer league was the worst, but this McDonald's crap takes the win by far and away. But seriously, I watched them play in them on TV that day, from afar, they look like Leafs Players in Purple and white with a hint of red. I thought the Habs' jerseys were fine at first, until I tried to watch them moving on the screen. At that point my eyes twisted in on themselves and ripped a hole in time and space, allowing me to travel back to 1912 and slap the guy who designed those sweaters. This is probably the only way you see a Maple Leaf on a Cheap Hockey Jersey today, wear a throwback from before the Toronto team was known as the Leafs.
