There’s not much going on in the uni-verse this weekend besides the Players Weekend craziness, so here are some items you may have missed:
Forbes has the complete list of every nickname that will be seen across the league this weekend.
Via Paul, the Mets chest script being used for Players Weekend has never been used there before.
Mets script on PlayersWeekend uni is taken from team logo. That script has never appeared on jersey before. Look at "M" to "e" transition. pic.twitter.com/jk1MKPEDlh

This is incredible. Even with Hurricane Harvey barrelling towards southeastern Texas, Houstonians still refused to buy Cowboys-branded coolers. Everything else was sold.
From earlier this week, UW-Platteville unveiled new uniforms for the upcoming football season. .

[edit: I mistakenly had the 2013 press release quoted above. It appears as if the school didn’t issue a press release or even cover the unveiling of this year’s new unis. If anyone can find it, please let me know. Bizarre. (thanks to UW-P Fan for pointing it out)]
