Today we have the worst Team USA unis ever, a cringeworthy NFL logo promotion, and customized shinguards.
- Whoa, check out the Nationals’ bullpen cart, complete with a flashing light as the squatchee! (From Bud Parks)
- Mets P Max Scherzer had a rehab start in Triple-A Syracuse earlier this week. He didn’t fully button his jersey, revealing a small velcro patch on the interior. (From Rick DiRubbo)
- Reader James Roche snapped the perfect photo of the various belts Padres players have used this season.
- The Ravens are going black-purple-white against Miami on Sunday. (From Andrew Cosentino)
- For Hispanic Heritage Month, the NFL has come out with a version of the league’s logo replacing the “N” with “Ñ”, apparently not realizing that the Spanish language includes the letter “N”. A lot of people noted that it was basically the NFL’s version of an old The Office bit. (From multiple readers)
- ESPN used a Rams logo when talking about the Chargers/Chiefs game yesterday. (From Marcus Hall)
- P Peter Moore will wear Frank Beamer’s No. 25 this weekend for VT. (From Andrew Cosentino)
- Here are this weekend’s uni combos for Troy, UNLV, Michigan State, Virginia, and Oklahoma. (Thanks to all who shared)
- Notre Dame will have NOBs on their green jerseys, which they’ll be wearing on Saturday against Cal. (Thanks, Phil)
- The Edmonton Elks will be wearing No. 15 helmet decals to celebrate QB Ricky Ray being elected to the Canadian Football Hall of Fame. (From Wade Heidt)
- The Islanders have a gorgeous 50th anniversary patch. It’ll look even better next to the ad patches most teams will have in that position, too. (From multiple readers)
- Penn State goalie Noah Grannan has a new mask design for this season. (From William F. Yurasko)
- The Prince Albert Raiders of the WHL have unveiled an Indigenous jersey to be worn on Oct. 1 for Canada’s National Day of Truth and Reconciliation. (From Wade Heidt)
- The USMNT have released their World Cup kits, which have been the subject of numerous leaks. Now that they’re official, though, I’m comfortable declaring them the worst USMNT kits of at least the last 30 or so years. It may just be the renderings, but the jersey and shorts numbers don’t appear to match, either. Worse still, it appears that the designers forgot about the USWNT, as the central placement of the USSF crest pushes the USWNT’s World Cup holders badge awkwardly to the side. (From multiple readers)
- Germany: Bayern Munich have released their Oktoberfest kit. All players are wearing green boots in the promo shots, which makes me wonder if that will be a requirement for their Oktoberfest match — soccer players usually have free choice for what color boots they wear in a match.
- Ukraine: Dynamo Kyiv have released their 2022/23 kits. Dynamo have already played three matches in the Ukrainian Premier League, using last year’s kits. (From Ed Zelaski)
- England: A young fan gave Manchester United FW Jadon Sancho a pair of customized shinguards. Sancho wore them in his next match, and after scoring, held one of them up to the crowd.
