Jaguars and Dolphins make uniform changes for the better

Both the Miami Dolphins and the Jacksonville Jaguars unveiled new changes to their uniforms today. Both were expected announcements, with the both teams going back to their traditional looks for the upgrade.

For the Dolphins, their new uniform made a simple change: more orange, less blue. In fact, the blue was removed all together (except for the logo) and the brighter orange is much more pronounced on the helmet stripe and number trim.

My WrestleMania 34 predictions

This year’s WrestleMania is so different from last year’s injury-riddled replacement card. This WrestleMania has one of the best cards of all time. The storylines are so good leading up to these matches that there are at least four matches I think could close the show. That’s how much fun this will be. Let’s see how I predict this show will go.

Kickoff Pre-show: WOMEN’S BATTLE ROYAL — All the participants known so far
– Sasha Banks, Natalya, Lana, Ruby Riott, Sarah Logan, Liv Morgan, Becky Lynch, Naomi, Bayley, Mickie James, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Carmella and more.

Who benefits from this the most? I am looking at the already announced wrestlers and I think this should go to one of the newer talents. Knowing that this match should elevate a career of a younger star, it would be easy to give this to someone from Riott Squad or Absolution. But with them being in a faction already, they have their place set. My choice would actually be someone who hasn’t had any major title wins yet. That would be Carmella. The reason why I chose Carmella is because this win would take attention away from her MITB briefcase which she has tried to cash in but has not done so yet. Sure, having her win this and MITB in less than a year sounds like they are putting a lot on her. But maybe we need a character that is so arrogant and win it all. Imagine if she cashes in tonight and wins the title. It’s rare that a superstar gets two major wins at WrestleMania. (You all remember Daniel Bryan four years ago in this very building.) Want to make the women’s evolution great? Let’s give them something that the men have done before.

And also, this will be the stage where the Bayle-Sasha Banks feud boils over into the next upcoming PPVs.

Kickoff Pre-show: ANDRE THE GIANT MEMORIAL BATTLE ROYAL — All the participants known so far
– Kane, Dolph Ziggler, Baron Corbin, Mojo Rawley, Elias, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, R-Truth, Sin Cara, Titus O’Neil, Apollo, Tyler Breeze, Fandango, Tye Dillinger, Dash Wilder, Scott Dawson, ​“Woken” Matt Hardy, Goldust, Heath Slater, Rhyno, Zack Ryder, Primo Colon, Shelton Benjamin, Chad Gable, Aiden English, Curt Hawkins, Bo Dallas, Curtis Axel, Mike Kanellis and more.

Zack Ryder should win it because why not? He deserves another WrestleMania moment and this match hasn’t really elevated the status of any of its previous winners. Unless some upstart NXT superstar like Aleister Black is entering, I’ll stick with this prediction.

But here is what needs to happen in the match. Brother Nero and Woken Wyatt need to make an appearance and form some kind of new alliance with Matt Hardy. This is the most important storyline that has to come out of this match. This is where we see the new Bray Wyatt and this new alliance.

The new Titans uniforms are so underwhelming

I could go into a long detailed post about these uniforms but I won’t. The team kept the same colors but just moved some things here and there and added that silver sword to the yokes.

But here are my initial thoughts:

Bay Bridge series trophy is cool but not necessary

It was announced that the regular season Bay Bridge series between the A’s and Giants will now feature a trophy to the series winner.

Here are the rules

  1. The Bridge will be awarded to the team that wins more games in the regular-season Bay Bridge Series.
  2. If the series finishes tied, the winner of the final game shall win The Bridge.
  3. If one or more games is postponed and the series has not yet been clinched, The Bridge will not be awarded until the postponed game(s) can be made up. If the postponed game(s) can not be made up, the standing of the series at the end of the season shall determine the winner of The Bridge. Whether or not postponed games are made up, if the series ends in a tie, the team that wins the final game will be awarded The Bridge.

Oakland A’s to charge Giants fans $50 for parking for no good reason

With the annual exhibition game between the A’s and Giants in Oakland coming up, it will be a great way for the Bay to prepare for the upcoming baseball season. Additionally, the Warriors are playing at home that day too so the parking lot will be packed.

The A’s decided to use this situation to get back at Giants fans.

Richard Sherman: Public Enemy No. 1 joins the 49ers

The infamous turkey incident will forever be embedded in the minds of 49ers fans. 

I remember when I first met Richard Sherman. It was the local pro day and Sherman, a cornerback from Stanford who might get drafted in the mid rounds, was putting on a show. He and Shane Vereen were the two that impressed me the most. Sherman was a wide receiver who converted to cornerback. He wore this really bright red cleats that day, reminding me of Dorothy trying to get back home.

That image made me wonder if Sherman could wear more red in his NFL career. With Jim Harbaugh as the 49ers head coach and having coached Sherman, it seemed like it was inevitable. I wrote down in my recap for the story I was writing that the team that drafts Sherman would get a steal.

He went to Seattle and they benefited tremendously from him.

49ers helmet design inconsistencies of the 1990s — an investigation

This post was inspired by a thread on SportsLogos.net.

In 1996, the San Francisco 49ers introduced a new uniform set partially inspired by their 1994 throwbacks. These new uniform featured a new logo, drop shadows and white pants.

One of the major changes was the addition of black to the helmet stripe. The 49ers removed the red-white-red helmet stripe and introduced a black-red-black stripe pattern to match the new white pants.
