You’ve probably never heard of CD Palencia, and probably never will again. The club plays in Spanish fourth division, though they currently are in the playoffs for promotion to the third. To support their promotion hopes, they’ve unveiled a new kit. It is ... strange.
Reactions to last season’s debut of monochromatic Nike NFL uniforms ran the gamut from “hideous” to “fine, whatever” to “I am colorblind and literally cannot tell these teams apart.” But enough of you morons actually went out and bought those jerseys, I guess, so they’re doing it again this year.
On the eve of the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the NHL released their list of the top-ten selling jerseys from the 2015-16 regular season. Wonder-teen Connor McDavid even snuck on!
Clothing company Mitchell & Ness, best known for its retro uniforms, has compiled the data on the top-selling throwback jerseys in every state for 2015. Your new champion, at least by number of states? Larry Bird, shoving out Kobe Bryant from last year’s top spot.
This is a weird one. Michael Strahan’s last NFL game was in 2008, when his Giants upset the 18-0 New England Patriots to win Super Bowl XLII. He had a sack and a pair of tackles in that game and left a 15-year NFL career for a very successful second act as a television host.
Everybody knows it’s not a matter of if, but when, the NBA decides to put ads on jerseys. According to a report from ESPN, that when could be soon: the 2017-18 season, when the NBA’s new jersey deal with Nike kicks in.
Like every married 30-year-old woman in America, I have of late become obsessed by the video for Justin Bieber’s “Sorry.” It has everything a good music video should: a catchy beat, amazing dancers decked out in the best ‘90s gear, and the conspicuous absence of the male gaze. Bieber pulled a Sia-like disappearing act…
The headline on the Diamondbacks’ official site is maybe less than objective: “D-backs wow with cutting-edge new uniforms.” Well, whatever else you can say about the uniforms unveiled yesterday, you can’t deny there sure are a lot of them.
The 49ers unveiled their new alternate uniforms last night, via the launch of their team Snapchat account, smack dab in the middle of the NFL Draft. It’s almost as if they wanted to make sure no one noticed, because the uniforms are junk.
Nobody is quite sure what Chip Kelly is doing, and that probably includes Chip Kelly himself. Is Sam Bradford his quarterback, or is it all part of a plan to trade up for his former college quarterback Marcus Mariota? Why did he sign Ryan Mathews even though he had already signed DeMarco Murray? Was he serious about…
Clothing company Mitchell & Ness has made its name on classic and retro gear. Using sales data from 2014, they've figure out which is the best-selling throwback jersey in every single state plus D.C. There are some obvious ones, but some definite surprises too.
Toronto started off the season badly. Then they were good for a while! Now they're really bad again. Who are the real Maple Leafs? (The bad ones.) But some fans don't really have the patience for them to figure it out. During last night's humiliating 4-1 loss to Carolina, at least four fans chucked their Leafs jerseys…
A league of hand-me-down players wearing hand-me-down jerseys? Sounds about right.
After allowing an offensive rebound, Miami's Josh McRoberts was so angry with himself that he tore his jersey with his bare hands. The Heat were winning, but McRoberts demands perfection.
Even though the Vikings have suspended running back Adrian Peterson indefinitely due to child injury charges involving his four-year-old son, the team's still selling his jerseys at games. At full price, too!
When I first saw this alleged 1860 Munich uniform, inspired by Oktoberfest and mimicking the Bavarian national costume, I thought it must be a joke. Gingham, collared shirts? Lederhosen? But it's real. And I think I kinda love it now.
What would possess a fan to wear a Ray Rice jersey last night? Nearly every one—and there were more than a few—said they wanted to make the statement that Rice doesn't deserve what's happened to him.
