Laval Rocket Unveil Their Uniforms

The St. John’s Ice Caps will be moving to Laval, Quebec beginning next season. As such, they will be changing the name as well to the Laval Rocket. The new uniforms have been unveiled and here are the color and white versions. While using the Canadiens colors they won’t be wearing the parent jerseys, which is a good thing. If you want to wear the Habs jersey, earn the promotion.

Blue Jays Add Some Red

The Toronto Blue Jays are adding a all-red jersey to their stable this season. They will be worn for Sunday home games and select games in July. A nice display of national pride being Canada’s only MLB team.

Colorado Rockies Finally Go Purple

The Colorado Rockies are making a change to their brand for the upcoming 2017 season. If you don’t pay attention closely to colors, the Rockies have brightened their purple to be more “purpley” and give it a consistent color match whether it’s a hat, jersey or various stadium lighting. This long overdue adjustment is the first change in the clubs 24-year history. And what a nice change it will be.

Albany Devils On The Move?

Unconfirmed reports out of the Capital District have the Devils leaving Albany at the end of the season and moving to Binghamton, replacing the Senators who are moving their franchise to Belleville. Stay tuned hockey fans

No Alternates for NHL Next Year

One of the negatives coming out of the NHL deal with Adidas is no alternates uniforms next season. The NHL has stated this will make the introduction of the Adidas apparel easier. It is surprising that a major apparel manufacturer is unable to handle this, seeing as they have had over a year to address this issue. Hopefully Adidas won’t be tied to one template as Reebok was and please return to true horizontal stripes.

What MLB Needs to Get back To!

Atlanta: These home and away need to replace the current atrocities.
Boston: They need to bring these home and away back.
Baltimore: Bring bad the old alt road and away days.
Cincinnati: The big red machine!  Home and away. Sansabelt and all.
Cleveland: The 90’s home  (even though it’s a movie pic) and away.
Chicago Cubs: This road uniform is the best ever.
California: What they have is nice, but this home and road is better.
Pittsburgh: The days of Pops. Gold, white, gold/black, black/gold.
Minnesota: The powder blues and pinstripes.
Florida: Teal is for real. This is a home run.
San Diego: Bring back da brown!
San Francisco: The orange rules! This alternate.

Sens Retire Alfredsson’s No. 11

Daniel Alfredsson had his number 11 retired December 29th courtesy of the Ottawa Senators. He is the club’s all-time leader in goals, assists and points during his 13 season career, all with the Senators.

The Flyers Attempt Failure Again

When someone has one of the best colors in the color palette, why would they choose to go black? The Flyers tried this obsession years ago and it turned out to be in my opinion, the biggest mistake they could have made regarding their uniforms. This is their atrocious jersey for the upcoming Stadium Series. Good thing for the fans it’s a one-time thing.

The Best Each City Had To Offer

1. Philadelphia – The Eagles, Flyers, Sixers, Phillies home and away. And the Flyers again, just because.They got it right then seemed to go wrong at times. But still the best there ever was. And this is coming from a Mets/Giants fan.

2. Atlanta – The Falcons, Braves, Flames and Hawks. The Braves back then were the weak link in this chain, but they’ve come up with nothing better since.

3. Minnesota – The Vikings, NorthStars, Twins and Timberwolves. Minnesota just got it right but unfortunately as times changes, so does beauty.

4. St. Louis – The Cardinals, Blues and Cardinals again. The Rams just aren’t St. Louis no matter what anyone says.

5. Oakland – The A’s home, away and alt. The Raiders and Golden Seals home and away, for anyone who remembers when they were Golden.

6. San Francisco – The 49ers and Giants home and away. When you have orange in your color palette, why screw it up with black?

7. Houston – The Astros, Oilers and Rockets. What the Texans wear just can’t compare to the Oilers.

8. New York – The Giants, Jets, Mets, Rangers and Islanders. Some people love the Yankees, but let’s face it, their uni’s are as bland as you can get.

9. Tampa Bay –  The Buccaneers home and away, Rays and Lightning. Even though everyone hates them, I love the Bucs orange.

10. Miami – The Dolphins, Heat, Panthers and Marlins home and away. They have the best sunshine colors and seem to screw it up by going black. I just don’t get it.
