Ticker

In today’s ticker, we’ve got potential changes on the horizon for the Broncos, some World Baseball Classic uni news, and more!

Baseball

MLB

  • Embarrassing: MLB’s uni advertiser for umpires, the crypto exchange FTX, has filed for bankruptcy after their entire exchange collapsed and salacious details about the personal life of CEO Sam Bankman-Fried were revealed. FTX is also the naming advertiser for the Miami Heat’s arena, and also advertises on Mercedes F1 cars. (From multiple readers)

  • Japan have revealed their uniforms for next year’s World Baseball Classic. Those classic pinstripe unis are amazing. (From Jeremy Brahm and Germán Cabrejo)
Football

NFL

  • The Broncos appear to be exploring potential new uniforms, sending out this email to fans asking for feedback about the team’s identity. (From multiple readers)
  • Teams playing on Thanksgiving will have John Madden memorial patches, according to the last paragraph of this piece. (From Chad Staffan)

College

  • Here’s the military appreciation helmet Michigan State will be wearing today. (From multiple readers)
  • Kick returner Tucker Holloway will wear Frank Beamer’s No. 25 for Virginia Tech at Duke. (From Andrew Cosentino)
  • Here are today’s uni combos for UConn and Virginia Tech.
Hockey

NHL

  • On Thursday night, the Rangers hosted many players’ fathers in a luxury box. They gave each father one of their son’s jerseys, but with woefully inaccurate NOB arching.
Soccer

International

  • Germany: Borussia Mönchengladbach hosted a “diversity match” yesterday, wearing their black third kits with rainbow accents. On Thursday, the club put out a statement expressing their opposition to the World Cup being held in Qatar, so it’s likely the timing of their diversity match was deliberate. (Thanks, Jamie)
  • Sticking in Germany, the Bundesliga’s official English Twitter page posted some American football helmet designs promoting their last matchday before the World Cup break. (From Billy Braden)

    Any thoughts on who MLB sells the umpires’ uniform advertising for next year? Maybe one of the high tech companies (Meta, Amazon, Google) who have laid off thousands this year?

    Considering the long-tired refrain of umpires being “paid off” to make calls benefit one team over the other, one would think that connecting them to financial-related businesses could seem problematic. If they have to wear an advertising patch, why not use one of the league’s other non-financial/banking/credit sponsors like Hankook, Geico, DQ, or T-Mobile?
