- The Hagerstown Flying Boxcars of the independent Atlantic League are soliciting fan input on the name of their costumed mascot. (From Kary Klismet)
- For the first time this season, not a single new uni element is scheduled to debut. (No new helmets, jerseys, pants or alt/CR/throwbacks.) However, the East Rutherford Jets will be wearing their black pants (first time this season), at the request of running back Breece Hall, on Monday Night Football.
- “Mismatched” socks aren’t necessarily a new trend, as evidenced by the 1980s Bears. (From Jeff Stark). [Although you can attribute that more to spatting tape than the random sock-a-palooza we have today — PH]
- Since it was “legalized” last season, a lot of players have taken to wearing “0”.
- Here’s a history of the Georgia Bulldogs’ uniforms by decade. (From Chris Thorpe)
- “You’ve probably seen this sort of thing, but if not I thought it was pretty funny,” writes Dave Hilbert. “A very local small business sponsoring a very basic ‘uniform report.’ What do you think the sponsorship cost, $20?”
- Bryant University has unveiled renderings of planned upgrades to Beirne Stadium, the home field for the football and men’s and women’s lacrosse teams. (From Kary Klismet)
- Yesterday the BC Lions introduced a new helmet logo in a playoff game: the old-school interlocking BC. There was no announcement about it from the team.

- The Madison Capitols went with some S&S-themed military appreciation unis last night. (From Jerry Nitzh)
- Patrick Marleau is the all-time leader for NHL games played. He played junior hockey for Seattle, though it feels like a lifetime ago. The Seattle Thunderbirds retired Marleau’s no. 12 Friday night. (From Wade Heidt)
- The Thunderbirds also wore their late 90s alternates for warmups on Friday. (Wade again)
- As you’re all aware, the NBA released all their “City” edition unis (and courts) this week, and UWers are generally not fans. Turns out, neither are Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.
- “Wonder if anyone else thinks the center of the Tower of the Americas sun logo on the Spurs’ court looks like an alien vomit emoji?” asks Jason Brown, who adds, “I can’t unsee it.”
- You’d think an article about the history of the Chicago Bulls’ logo might show an image of the logo, but you’d be wrong. (From Kary Klismet)
