Islanders’ fisherman jersey makes its return

I have always considered the Islanders fisherman jerseys to be the most beautiful ugly jersey in all of sports. It’s so ugly, yet there is a bit about it that gives me the warm feelings. The team only wore these for two seasons and as the Islanders play their final season in Long Island, it is nice that they are bringing back this integral part of their history.

I cannot wait to see them in action one last time. Even though this is just a warmup jersey, it’s still something. A part of me wants to get this jersey for the sake of owning a piece of ugly uniform history.
