- The Raiders introduced new LB Robert Spillane yesterday. Spillane was wearing an old Reebok Raiders cap, which begs the question: Where the hell did that come from? No way the team would give him some leftover stock from the Oakland days, right? Of course, if any team would do that, it’s the Raiders. (From Rudy Gutierrez)

That Marquette display is PERFECT. Proof that that kind of attention to historical uniform detail really pays off.
I think the Vancouver Canucks do something similar, but the number font is uniform. I like Marquette’s way better.
Correct on both accounts.
Yes the Canucks also do this and yes Marquette does it better.
“…which begs the question…”
That should be: “which *raises* the question”.
