Jersday Blog April 4, 2018

Now time for the Thursday, Friday, Saturday Jersey Blog! Punctuality has been a hell of a battle lately. Bear with me when I say next week I’ll be back on track.

The Round-Up

Sidney Crosby Pittsburgh Penguins 2008-11 Alternate Jersey

The blue Pittsburgh Penguins jerseys are one of my favourite NHL looks. Crosby is definitely the cream of the crop for this era. Malkin, Fleury, Letang, Gonchar, Staal, Kunitz, Bill Guerin, Matt Cooke, Alex Ponikarovsky. Simply the best.

Detroit Tigers Batting Practice Jersey
(Submitted by Phillip Waind)

Since summer time is just around the corner it means baseball jersey season is almost upon us. The v-neck batting practice jersey a good look for 500 levels beers, barbecues, drinks on the docks and darties. I was with my brother when he got this beauty from Comerica Park last year. Watched the World Champion Boston Red Sox carve up the hapless Tigers. It was a treat to watch Chris Sale when he could still top 90 MPH.

The Tigers may be rotten this year but this jersey is fresh.

Baker Mayfield Oklahoma Sooners Jersey

Baker Mayfield is hot in the streets right now. On paper the Cleveland Browns looks like they will be a wagon this year and Baker Baker Touchdown Maker is the one steering. Mayfield is probably the most exciting quarterback in the game both on and off the field. He can throw the back foot scramble bullets that people thought was in Johnny Manziel’s repertoire and doesn’t hold back from talking shit on Twitter.

Normally a college jersey is a slam dunk for Jersey of the Week but…

Jersey of the Week

Mississippi River Kings Jersey

Never heard of this team. Never heard about the Southern Professional Hockey Team. When I Google “Mississippi River Kings Buker” there is no such player that pops up. But I’ll be damned if this isn’t the wildest jersey that I have ever laid my eyes on. The playing cards, the poker chips, the subtle diamond, hearts, clubs and spades in the background, the red, green and yellow colour scheme, the angry turtle and dog logo. There is just way too much to unpack here.

As of right now the River Kings are out of operation as they search for an owner. Ladies and gentlemen I might just throw my hat in the ring. I would love to be the man to bring hockey back to Mississippi.

Two straight weeks without a Jersey of the Week submission from Adam. Will he respond?

The Weekly Jersey News Dump

The NHL and New Era are batting .000 on these draft caps.

How is it possible for the Diamondbacks to have approximately 100 active jerseys and all of them stink out loud.

RIP Nipsey Hussle.

Incredible shot by an incredible Argentinian.

Wasn’t a fan of the old look so these are fine… But on behalf of the Saskatchewan Roughriders cease and desist.
