Today in the Ticker: The Bruins and Canucks both show up wearing white, a uni-based Movember promotion, and more.
- Left over from Saturday: Texas A&M WR Moose Muhammad III said he was benched for wearing arm sleeves. Twitter-er @MikeFSUAFC tells us that coach Jimbo Fisher also banned the sleeves at Florida State on the grounds that they made receivers more likely to drop passes. (From Phil and Mike Chamernik)
- The FCS’s Tennessee State, whose colors are blue and white, wore all-red, apparently for the first time since the mid-’80s. (From @MikeT304)
- The FCS’s Idaho wore a memorial helmet decal for former player Collin Sather on what would have been his senior day. (From Blaise D’Sylva)
- The Argonauts wore mono-dark blue with light blue socks for the East final. (From Wade Heidt)
- The Bruins and Canucks both emerged for pregame warm-ups yesterday wearing white, because the Bruins were wearing their RR jerseys on a day they weren’t scheduled to. As the home team, Boston switched to black. (From multiple readers)
- The Flames are auctioning off their Hockey Fights Cancer warm-up jerseys. (Thanks, Phil)
- The Kings are apparently the first NHL team ever to wear three different white jerseys in one season. (From @KingsUniHistory)
- “What is with the larger spacing between the collar and the top of the Blue Note on the RR Jon Hamm wore last night compared with what Robert Thomas was photographed wearing?” asks Jeff Brand about the Blues’ RR jerseys.
- Hofstra’s men’s club team has new jerseys. (From John Muir)
- Reader Jim McCormack sent us a piece on the Hartford Braillers, a coed blind hockey team with a very clever jersey design.
- US/San Diego Wave striker Alex Morgan’s 200th national team cap came yesterday, so she got a commemorative No. 200 shirt.
- England/Scotland/Wales: Scottish men’s teams wore poppies this weekend. The England and Wales women’s teams wore armbands.
- France’s version of the poppy, the bleuet, appeared on men’s club teams’ shirts this weekend. The women’s national team also wore armbands.
- Germany: 1. FC Nürnberg released a one-off white shirt with “Mensch” (“person”) on the front and everything else around it whited out. Their men’s team wore it in the 2. Bundesliga on Saturday. The marketingspeak attached to the shirt does not say it is related to the men’s World Cup while calling Nürnberg a city of peace and human rights, but obviously the timing is relevant and interesting.
- Scotland: The Queen’s Park men’s team is to return to the national stadium, Hampden Park, for two games in December because of scheduling conflicts. The club owned the stadium until 2020 and is building a smaller one outside.
- Here’s an interesting thread on the simplification of European team crests. (From Joseph Pitirri)
- Here’s an overview of the shirts being worn for Australia’s Women’s Big Bash League’s ongoing First Nations round.
- North Carolina held a dual against Michigan yesterday at its baseball stadium. (From James Gilbert)
