    Some of the Auburn concept uniforms are pretty nice! I like the striped helmet and facemask with the vertical stripes down the jersey.

    Thanks, David! These are always a lot of fun to put together

    Thanks Lloyd for always linking my articles – I appreciate you.

    Am I missing something? The Caps/Wizards owner’s company owns the arena (only 25 years old), and wants to meet with DC leaders about potential improvements? Just make the improvements, you own it. Stop looking for a handout.

    A 25-year old arena is now a relic that must be replaced, or else—wait for it—the owner will consider moving? Ridiculous. This country can’t build anything anymore—except stadiums and arenas.

    I like how the serif on the “K” in the new Kings’ font mimics the lilt of their Lion’s tail. I wonder if that was intentional.
