  • “My exciting Friday night is going down a YouTube rabbit hole and finding WFL footage (July 1974, the summer before I started eighth grade),” writes Fran Fried. “There was some very well-preserved footage of the final minute of a Jacksonville Sharks-Chicago Fire game from early in the first season. Not only did the Fire have one of the best unis in the league … were there any other WFL teams that had a helmet buggy? Given the sad financial state of most of the teams, this came as a huge surprise to me.”

    Going to nitpick the link – the numbers on the Capital One Arena scoreboard are still digital, in that they aren’t analog. It is just a retro digital design.

    Does anyone else find it ironic that the coyotes “new arena” seats about 1/2 of what their minor league affiliate does?

    “Great powder blue uniforms for the St. John’s (Minnesota) hockey team. Great goalie gear too. (From Jimmy Lonetti)”

    Yes…yes they are!

    Does anyone know why the Seahawks almost always wears gray at Arizona? As far as I can tell they’ve worn white twice there since getting the new unis 10 years ago and have worn gray 7 times

    Wisconsin is, by all measures, rather traditional with their uniforms. But that doesn’t mean their players wouldn’t be opposed to “blackout” unis.

    Please, no.
    I’ve rolled with the times enough to appreciate their white/red/red combo. Just stick with that and leave the black alone.

    Re: Fleury ReverseRetro: no link, and of course it’s Marc-Andre Fleury, unless Theo is making a comeback at at 54.

    The Canucks are between a rock and a hard place. The seeming consensus is the 1970-77 uniforms are the best, but it’s in the Flying-V, skate, and orca uniforms that they played in the Stanley Cup Finals. I’d lobby for the blue and green Flying-V’s that Wafflebored designed.
