Is this for real, Clippers?

Now this is interesting. Check out the above entry about the Clippers and what might be their new uniform and logo design. Take note that these are from sources and these new logos and uniforms are not confirmed, but speculation. So take them for what they are.

But let’s say that these new designs are real. What a mess!

Cleveland Browns unveil new uniforms for 2015

In a big event for their fans, the Cleveland Browns have officially unveiled new uniforms for the upcoming season. We already knew about the logo and helmet design changes, but now we have the rest of the package.

The first thing that stands out to me is that the numbers have a very unique drop shadow. To enhance the 3D look, the drop shadow comes from an angle that isn’t common around sports. Normally the “light” comes from the northwest, but it comes from the opposite direction. It’s a very interesting look and one that I am actually not too big on. I always viewed the Browns as a team with a simple look and I think this one is a little too fancy for my taste.

And another new element is the city name on the front. We have seen teams put the team wordmark on the front above the numbers, but I think a city name is a first. And I know for a fact that this is the largest I have ever seen in the pros. It reminds me a college football uniform approach but I feel it’s pretty amateur for a professional team. It might not even be that bad once I get used to it. But for now, I don’t like it.

Is this the new Browns jersey?

These photos, courtesy of BottleGate, were taken at a Columbus store before being removed from the racks.

All the previous leaks of the jersey match this jersey. If these are the new Browns jerseys, there are a few questions I have to ask.

1- Is this the primary jersey, meaning Brown is an alt or not even a jersey?

2- Why is the city name so big on the jersey?

3- Why is the “drop shadow” actually being lifted as if the light was coming from the bottom right?

Indians’ new dark navy jersey is really dark

During the offseason, the Indians announced that they would make their primary home caps and their alternate road caps’ shade of blue match their throwback jerseys. This made sense in terms of having some uniformity in their uniform.

On Wednesday, they wore their alternate cap in addition with their alternate jersey. This made sense for the jersey to match the caps. However, the shade of blue, which the team calls “Midnight Navy” looked really dark. So dark that at first glance, it looks black.

A look at the recent history of the Oakland Athletics’ socks

Sonny Gray during the final game of the 2014 regular season.

The MLB world was talking about Sonny Gray’s socks in the Oakland A’s season opener on Monday. And for good reason. Gray, who recently started wearing his pant legs up, revealed the standard green socks we expected to see.

So it came to no surprise that when Gray went to the mound on Monday, he would rock the high socks again. But the surprise to many people was that he wore socks that had stripes on them. People thought they looked amazing.

Check out next season’s NFL Pro Bowl uniforms

At least it’s not so brightly colored. The Pro Bowl uniforms next year are a lot simpler in design with a color scheme of black and gold. Since the NFL is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the modern Super Bowl era, these Pro Bowl duds reflect that of the golden anniversary. I think it’s a nice simple look. I still miss the days of the red for the AFC and the blue for the NFC, but with the new draft format, those days are gone.

I like the unique design of the shoulders for both uniforms. The white jersey appears to be just lines but the black jerseys appear to have this unique layering of shorter lines placed in the opposite direction.

(Is that a Saints helmet in the background? Is that facemask gray?)
