Posted in:

In today’s Ticker, we’ve got a little bit of everything.




  • 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”.



  • 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 Lions were also wearing black over gray, which is not their usual home combo. (From Wade Heidt). You can read more about this helmet here. (From Blaise D’Sylva)


  • Here’s the 2023 entry for “Worst Uniform Ever” with this camopander mess. (From

  • The Thunderbirds also wore their late 90s alternates for warmups on Friday. (Wade again)



  • The LSU women’s team has a new locker room that includes a painting of a tiger wearing a crown (presumably in recognition of their 2023 NCAA DI national championship). (From Kary Klismet)
  • Nike has also added a gold tab to the back of the LSU women’s jerseys like they do with all teams they outfit who have won a national title. (Kary again)
  • UConn has unveiled its new basketball court. (One more from Kary)

    Re the subway baseball poster, the D and 4 trains took you to Yankee Stadium, the 7 took you to Citifield and the Mets. The outfielder catching a ball is wearing an N, a train which goes to Coney Island where the Brooklyn Cyclones minor league team play. And the catcher (blocked by the pole) wears the SIR of the Staten Island transit for its minor league team.

    The Seattle Space Needle is graceful and curvy; The San Antonio Tower of the Americas just looks like a cake on a pole.

    The San Antonio Tower of the Americas….Toronto CN Tower….Stratosphere in Vegas….the cookie cutter stadiums of the MLB in the 70’s.. The Space Needle in Seattle….Dodger Stadium.

    “…Jets will be wearing their black pants (first time this season)…”
    Hopefully SD,err…LA packed their yellows.

    That pic of Gehrig, Rockne and Ruth:
    Lou: Charming and confident
    Knute: Stoic and timeless
    Babe: Where’s the hotdog and beer vendors?
