    Colorado RR are sharp. I feel like the socks with thinner stripes would be better though.

    And I must be the only one who dislikes San Jose’s RR. Just don’t get it.

    *looks at the London Knights item* Oh… oh my… SPIDER-KNIGHT IS BACK!

    Some history: The London Knights have traditionally had the colors of the North Stars, green and gold (and later black); their current unis are similar to the 1988-91 green-gold-black North Stars unis. But in the 1990s, the Knights decided to “modernize” by replacing their bucket-head logo with a superheroic-looking knight seemingly bursting out of the jersey (okay, weird and creepy). Given his pose was reminiscent of a certain superhero, the logo was almost immediately dubbed the Spider-Knight. (Or Spiderknight, I don’t think they’re too choosy about the parsing.) The team also ditched the North Stars colors for Mighty Ducks colors. By the early 2000s, though, they were back in green, gold, and black (varying between Dallas forest green and metallic gold and classic Minnesota green and yellow-gold over the last two decades), and the Spider-Knight was relegated to the history books…

    … until now. Apparently the official reveal is set for this Tuesday, the 29th.

    I’ve got to say, I have a problem with the Colorado R R uni.
    It’s not that it looks bad. I think it should be related to the old Nordiques.
    They had nothing to do with the Colorado Rockies. I guess they could have done something related to the old Grizzles or Colorado Rangers, but certainly not the Rockies.
