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.

The Round-Up

German National Hockey Jersey

In the 2020 World Junior’s Germany is back in and Denmark’s gonna be watching from home. I can’t imagine the German’s tournament will last long considering this year’s backwards results has left Germany in the group of death:

Yeah definitely not ideal.

In honour of a sweet jersey and an 2020 elimination in advance, here’s the best of what the German hockey machine has churned out.

Sure you can have your Draisaitls and Kolzigs. The Uwe Krupps and Korbinian Holzers are what German hockey is all about.

Jean-Gabriel Pageau Alternate Reebok Ottawa Senators Jersey

These are by far the best jerseys that have been in Ottawa’s rotation. The striped look is one of my favourite looks. It makes any team, even a 90’s Senators expansion team, look like a classic. Also I’ve never been sold on the roman centurion logo. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen a member of the Canadian senate but they certainly aren’t leading hundreds of legionnaires into battle.

As for JG Pageau, I always appreciate an off-the-board jersey selection. On most good teams Pageau would be an effective middle six forward. On a bad team Pageau is the lead penalty killer, the go-to faceoff man and scores in bunches.

Rick Nash 2003-07 Era Columbus Blue Jackets Jersey

The classic Koho jersey with the neon green still mixed into the Blue Jackets colour scheme. Kind of ugly yet sublime.

For over a decade Rick Nash was the only reason to scoop up a hockey ticket in the state of Ohio. The 6 time all-star and 2004 Rocket Richard winner did nothing but put the puck in the net for the hapless Blue Jackets. Here’s a taste of his supporting cast for his time (2002-2012) in the Buckeye state.

Too many people remember recent Nash years as a washed-up goal scorer on the Rangers (save for his 42 goal 2014-15 season). But with the Blue Jackets he was one of the best scorers on the planet despite being flanked by elite teammates like David Vyborny, Christian Huselius and Geoff Sanderson. While he hasn’t officially announced it yet, it looks like 34 year-old Nash is likely done in the NHL. Pour one out for Columbus’s first real star in franchise history.

Jersey of the Week:

Baker Mayfield Oklahoma Sooners Jersey

This is a huge jersey. Mayfield is one of the best young talents in the game and also one of the most popular players. I’m a huge fan of any pro athletes’ college/junior/minor league jersey. Cleveland Baker will probably win offensive rookie of the year. But Oklahoma Baker rode bunches of touchdowns, passing yards, wins and big time cellies to a Heisman.

The Weekly Jersey Dump

Meh. Not the best. Not the worst.

We get it. People like PK Subban. Josi and Rinne have both made all star teams before so I don’t really understand the ceremony or point of this video. This isn’t Subban giving a jersey to some Make-A-Wish kids. Nice Adidas infomercial.

I’d make these the permanent 3rd jerseys.

Happy Halloween.

These jerseys are unreal. The throwback look conjures up images of Kurt Warner fresh out of the Arena Football League as the front man for The Greatest Show on Turf.

I though Dallas had a chance before I saw this tweet. Rams by 21.
