Morning Free Association: The New Jerseys Are Here!

The humongous, big Adidas jersey reveal happened yesterday. People are oohing and ahhing over the new Vegas Golden Knights jersey. I found one part of it particularly enticing.

It looks like there’s something embossed in the gold. I hope that’s the actual design, not just a manipulation of the picture. As for the rest of the uniform

Anyway, around these parts, we care a little bit more about a team that also wears gold, and black, and sometimes white – the Boston Bruins. They also had a new jersey and uniform reveal. It’s largely the same. I’ll allow Pete Blackburn to detail the differences that we hadn’t already covered.

The socks are different in that are similar to the ones worn with the “Men In Black” thirds.

I always like more black.

I’ll only truly get excited when I can have spikes and chains on them or maybe something like this, from an actual conversation in our home last night:

Me: Honestly, I pay so little actual attention to other jerseys that I can’t really tell the difference on most of the new ones. Or I’m too tired. Maybe that’s it, I’m too tired to look at them today. That’s what I’ll say.
Him: They need something. More turtlenecks!
Me: Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
Him: More (garbled speech behind the door, this is what I heard) puppynecks.
Me: Puppynecks? What are puppynecks? Oh, they need more puppies!

This is why I will never design a jersey.

Morning, pals.

  • Do we have a roster yet? Please take McQuaid or Beleskey. PLEASE.
  • I hate the black socks. Gold brought some balance to the uniform and we’ve always had gold socks. HATE.
  • Skating guy is an insane maniac and he makes me have fun. What a delight. I wish he had a real website instead of a Craigslist ad and a twitter account, because I’d give him an awesome review.
  • DO WE HAVE A ROSTER YET? WOULD YOU PLEASE TAKE MCQUAID OR BELESKEY? THANK YOU.
  • I know it’s tonight. I’m just really fucking impatient.

    And team colors are black and gold. Not black and some gold.

    Yes. Correct.

    Morning all. Well done on the jersey, Vegas. As for the others, at least they didn’t fuck up the Bruins one. On the fence about the black socks. While I love black, too much on the ice and they start to look like that goopy monster from Star Trek that killed Tasha Yar.

    There is a crazy rumor out there that Hossa is allergic to his hockey gear because of a skin condition. Well, sadly, it is true.

    Looks like the Hawks are gonna be out of cap jail with LTIR for it too. I don’t like anything about this. Sucks for Hossa first & foremost, but gah the Hawks

    Yeah, I imagine if you have a bad skin condition then sweaty hockey gear is not a good thing for you.

    And, sweaty = bacteria laden

    Yup, a perfect cesspool of gross.

    I read Phil Esposito’s autobiography. He mentioned many players getting skin condition flare ups while he was in the NHL. He said that for many, it was nothing serious, just a pain in the butt. I can see how some people’s condition can be worse.

    Hey Pals!,
    Had a single last night, not a double like I thought. It was a league championship, however, and that means wine, err rather whine. Throw in a partner who doesn’t even get offsides right and, yeah, like that. At least I got a good skate in (covering both blue lines and my goal line).
    New jerseys – meh. As long as they don’t screw it up royally, who cares?
    Heading north in a few. A lil work and then a paddle!!!!
    Cawffeeeeee!!!!l
