I am actually a fan of the State Farm commercial featuring Chris and Cliff Paul. It’s simple but funny. This new one really caught my attention because the argyle shoes would be awesome to see on the court
This is a great and fun way of interbranding two corporations. Throw in Jordan brand and boom! You got a hot seller! Let’s make it happen!
The Baltimore Orioles will wear this anniversary patch this upcoming season. It is gorgeous. It may be the best anniversary patch in the history of anniversary patches. Well, maybe not, but this is really nice.
The simple “60″ in the team’s current number font
The first and current year are balanced out with the corresponding team logo
The balance of orange, black and white gives it a real nice touch
The home plate is simple but very effective
The three stars for their three World Series titles
I don’t watch FS1 much but I did catch a glimpse of their show (whatever they call it with all the highlights) and they had this logo history deal on the right. FS1 likes to share notes about each team and there are two ways I approach this:
1 – Either they want to expand their notes about each team to more than just stats and numbers
2 – The Ducks are so boring (or they know little about them) that they came up with this fact to share.
This one hits close to home as I've lived in the IE (Inland Empire for my non-Southern California friends) for all my life. Growing up near Pomona (home of the NHRA's Winternationals, Finals and Hot Rod Museum), I've been immersed into car-culture since I was little. Pops was one of the founder of the "STYLE" car club in the 70's and ended up in one of the pages of LowRider Magazine; my Uncle was a Super Comp driver for many years and Pops, Uncle and my Grandpa all painted cars on the side.
Truth. What I liked about the previous set was their simple colors of red, white and blue and their logo. But this one is just so different, I don't know if it works out well enough for me to like. I better stock up on the old 66ers gear before they're gone.
So you know those “bleeding” uniforms Under Armour gave Northwestern that caused a stir? Apparently they’re doing it for basketball too and Stephen Curry unveiled the shoes to honor the veterans for Veterans Day. Since the Warriors aren’t playing until Tuesday, I think that’s when he plans to debut them.
These shoes from a design standpoint is simple. But the choice of black and green reminds me of night vision goggles. Add onto the fact that the sole looks like a target for a missile crosshair of some sort, I don’t actually know if the design is that good. I mean, you target something or someone you intend to kill, right? I’m not sure I am comfortable with the shoe depicting that.
I suppose there’s a consolation that nobody will see the sole when the shoe is worn.
I’m all for honoring our vets, but I still have a hard time finding these inspired equipment and uniform designs that actually depict the act of violence. Maybe I’m old school. Or maybe Under Armour once again took it a little too far.
Originally published, 11:16AM: This is a picture from an eBay listing. It seems to jibe with the previous reports we've heard about: sleeves, with the player's number on the left sleeve. Also, I had heard from a source that the front of the jersey would feature an enlarged logo, not a wordmark like I originally suspected.
College football is the land of consistency, pageantry, and tradition. More and more often, however, pageantry overwhelms those other two elements and we get teams trying out crazy alternate uniforms. Some are ugly, some are dope. Here are the best 10 alternates we've seen this season.
10. Oregon State - The Beavers rocked these metallic orange unis when they faced USC on November 1st.
Last night I started to think about the best helmets in NFL history. It was something that I decided to make a list of right here just because why not? The NFL helmet is the identity of the team. I remember the old Monday Night Football intros where both helmets crash into each other. That’s priceless.
So with that in mind, I’ve decided to create my own personal list of the Top 10 helmets in NFL history that I think stand the test of time. Feel free to disagree with me here.
Before I begin, here are some basic criteria that I used to determine which helmets should be on the list.
