The Simpsons did not predict the Seahawks and Broncos Super Bowl matchup

It’s a fun joke the show tweeted out. But people actually believe that it is true. Yes, in the 2005 episode “Bonfire of the Manatees,” Homer was watching a game between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos. However, that is it. Nowhere in the episode did they predict that it was a Super Bowl. If you actually watch the episode, or read the script, they stated that the game was played at the Broncos’ home stadium.

Giants introduce new “old school” Orange Friday jersey

New orange jersey.

The San Francisco Giants for the past several seasons have selected Friday home games to be the day where the team wears their orange alternate jerseys. They just unveiled a new orange jersey for their upcoming season.

This new orange jersey really is actually a modernized version of their 1978-82 jerseys. In fact, they’ve worn it as a throwback before.

A few obvious differences can be seen. The script features the dropshadow of gold along with the white trim. And instead of a collar piping, it’s a simple and boring headspoon (like the road jerseys) that runs down the front. The sleeve piping is similar to the home whites. The patch I don’t think works. It’s a nice idea, but an unnecessary one.

It is unconfirmed if their previous orange jerseys will be in use still or they have been retired. If this is the end of that jersey, then it was a brief four-year run for that jersey. But hey, merchandise sales will go up, right?

Happy new year, everybody!

Great jersey.

It’s the year of the horse! Cool stuff. I’m away from family so I won’t get to have a big dinner or get red envelopes. I’ll make the most of it.

In the meantime, can somebody get me this? It’s a great jersey that I would love to add to my collection.

The details:

This Hawaiian barnstorming team toured the mainland from 1912-1916, taking on college teams, black clubs, and semi-pro teams. The idea that the players attended the “Chinese University Of Hawaii” was a fiction created by the promotors, but the first Hawaiian club consisted of players of Chinese ancestry. Later squads also included native Hawaiian and other ethnicities.
