Warriors unveil new Chinese New Year jerseys

I expected this to happen but I was unsure how the Warriors would go about it. The Rockets already have a Chinese New Year jersey coming out as well but this one by the Warriors is a little curious to me.

Wouldn’t it make more sense to have it be red or yellow instead of slate gray?

Here are some things that are worth noting. Warriors is written out in Chinese on the front. On the sleeve (yes, the stupid sleeves) is an image of a goat, which is the animal for the upcoming new year. Side panels look great and the trim is pretty nice. They will wear it on February 20, the day after the new year and three more times later in the season.

I’m all for this really and the Chinese population in the Bay Area is strong. And I am glad they didn’t add “el” or “los” or some kind of cultural cop out like the NBA has in the past. But I just don’t like the color. Great idea. Not so great execution.

The Super Bowl XLIX patch has nice detail but…

The jersey patches are in! #OnToSB49 #SB49

I like the detail in the Super Bowl patch this year. You have the stadium and some elements of the desert like the cactus. But I am starting to get real frustrated with the generic Super Bowl logos. I thought I could withstand the frustration but it’s been a few years now and I miss the days where the logo was unique every year.

Next year, I expect the logo to be gold but basically the same design.

This also indicates that the Patriots will wear their white jersey for the Super Bowl as expected. The Seahawks have also tweeted out a photo of their patch and they will wear blue.

Mariners unveil new Sunday alternate uniform and modifications to current set

The Seattle Mariners have unveiled a new Sunday alternate uniform. The team already have two alternate sets (navy, teal) along with their home whites and road grays.

I initially thought they would go the throwback route but instead they gave us a mixture of their current set with their inaugural colors. The uniform is cream white and there are no player names on the back.

The cap is the same current logo but also recolored. The team also have striped stirrups which I think is a really nice touch. Here are some up close photos from their unveiling today.

White at home looked so good for the Sharks

It’s rare to see white at home in the NHL but when it does happen, it’s a beauty.

Last night for Metallica night, the Sharks wore white at home and it was amazing. Brings me back to the days when that was the norm. I hope to see more of it.

What if your favorite arcade games were NBA logos?

Last night AK-47 Studios posted this on Instagram.

Mitchell & Ness to release new NBA caps based on team uniforms

This is pretty exciting for me. Lids and Mitchell & Ness have partnered up to sell these NBA caps. The design, as you see, is solely based on the design of the shorts of the uniform. This is pretty cool as it incorporates a unique element for each team and it’s not some cookie-cutter design.

Some of these take us back to when a certain design on the shorts was so unique. Look at the Raptors or Rockets design in the above image. It’s very distinct and I like it. It reminds me of what Reebok did some years back for the NFL.

So what’s my only problem? They’re snapbacks. I don’t like snapbacks. I wanted fitted caps. Well, let’s see if I can convince myself to get past that and possibly pick up one of these caps.

NHL All-Star Game jerseys look terrible

OK this baffles me. I am all for new designs and these designs are fine. But why the neon green? The Blue Jackets are hosting the game and their color scheme features no green. The black and green doesn’t work. It seems like they’re pulling from what the NFL did for their Pro Bowl.

It looks like it’s some chrome crest with a bunch of racing stripes down the side. Not a great look at all. Reebok messed up on this one.
