The Oakland Athletics unveiled a new jersey and cap on Friday to celebrate their 50 years in Oakland. The Kelly Green jersey and cap will be worn for every Friday home game.
Celebrating their origins of Kelly Green, the team took those colors and used their city name wordmark along with the sleeve stripes from their current alternate to build this jersey. It’s white lettering with gold trim on the green jersey. It’s a great idea and homage to their home.
In addition to the jersey, the A’s unveiled the corresponding cap. The cap is green all around with the team logo in white.
After giving myself a day to process all the information, I am ready to share my thoughts on the XFL’s comeback.
There are a still a lot of uncertainties about the league but it looks like Vince McMahon knows that the two years he is giving himself before the first season is a very good start. The last time the XFL was around, it folded after one season for many reasons and one of them was that they were not ready in so many aspects in running and operating a league with a big TV deal. A TV deal was not announced yet, but we can expect that if the XFL wants to succeed, it needs to be seen.
The biggest news about the league was the image McMahon wanted to portray with the players. Players must not have any criminal history (which includes DUIs) and they will not use this platform for any social or political agenda — which includes anthem kneeling.
