Athletic Aesthetics

The Phils are adding an alternate uniform for next year. Here it is:

Frankly, I could do without the blue hat. I don't even like the little blue button on the interleague cap, now I have to deal with an entire blue lid...with a red bill to give it just enough of a ridiculous Cirque de Soliel-esque look. Like a 6 year old decorating Easter eggs, probably one color too many. It's a shame that the horrible blue hat distracts from what otherwise is a nice, simple red and white pinstripe-less design.

This Little Piggie...
The Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs recently unveiled their logo and uniforms. Props to the FeHams, the logo is pretty sweet. And the 5 uniforms and 4 hats aren't bad either. Wait, what? Five jerseys and four hats? Imelda Marcos thinks that is wardrobe excessiveness. You can see all the different possible combos at the team store. Below is the cool logo.

i just like that they called pat burrell "player" in the picture. he is, fo sho! they should put "stud" on utley's uniform, and maybe "fucking loser shmuck" on eaton's.

He who must not be named wears the #3. Oh wait we canned him.

They add a blue cap and suddenly they are "Sunday after a Satruday night game during the week of a business person's special."

I wish teams would just say "these are another variation on our uniform, just to squeeze a few more bucks outta you."

If they were to have an alternate jersey it should have been 1 of the following 3- old school maroon or powder blue, or an all red top like their batting practice jerseys.

I need to get me an Iron Pigs hat...people will be giving me a second glance for something other than my huge man-piece for a change.

Huge hair piece? Early onset baldness caused by the 1994-2006 Phillies GM Carson?

Wait. The 2007 Phillies made us pull our hair out as well...

GM-Carson said...

SirAlden- what the hell are you talking about?!?!?!

How come some of the Iron Pigs jerseys look diry in the pics on the team store site... is it just my screen or something... or do they come pre-dirtied?

GM-Carson said...

Didn't you know pre-soiled clothing with sweat stains, grass patches, and dirt scuffs are the in fashion?

Sorry to be pedantic, but the current regular caps are all red with a blue button. The interleague caps have a blue bill and a blue button and the P on the front has a blue star in it. [/dork]

These new blue hats remind me of the 1994 weekday day game abominations that were eventually abandoned because they had bad karma. Yuck.

Carson dissed by Siralden, awesome!

The hats of the iron pigs are uhm interesting.

Corey said...

clare - true dat. my bad. still hate the blue button too, but the blue bill is worse.

carson - best way to keep people from staring at your "man-piece" is to stay off of Fire Island

SirAlden said...

Huge Man Piece - Huge Hair Piece.

SirAlden said...

Can't dis GM.

As MC Hammer would say...

"Can't touch dat."

Can't touch the one who will always be known for his farting of flowers.

Not to mention- I'm too legit to quit!

As a Lehigh Valley resident, I think there's a lot of wasted potential here. IronPigs? Is this arena football? I loathe sports marketers who are always turning two words into OneWord.

I didn't like the logo at first either, but it's grown on me. Still a little too faux edgy but I like the sheer number of possible uniform combinations. Mathematicians and Carrie Bradshaw-wannabes unite!
