I think Nick Burton just knocked one out of the park. When the Boston Bruins inevitably return to Winter Classic action, this is the sweater they must wear. They must then make it their full time road jersey and create a home sweater to match. They would never need another jersey for the rest of time.
If Minnesota can't have the North Stars back, perhaps they can at least have their jerseys back. Ted Noakes has revamped the Wild to look like their state's NHL predecessor. I'd call it a win.
Who else is in favor of the Los Angeles Kings bringing back purple? Their black and silver look is just so dull, isn't it? I like Dylan Alexander's concept, even if it does feature a Burger King third jersey. I kind of like that guy. He's grown on me over the years.
You know, on these University Sunday posts, I typically like to use the name of the school and its athletics nickname in the title. But Todd Varga threw me a curveball with this University of North Dakota concept. They used to be called the Fighting Sioux, but a lot of lawsuits and 80 years later, UND simply no longer has a nickname. So there. As for the concept, you know I can't turn down a good green jersey.
We're taking a brief break from the Waddell Brothers' Winter Classic series this weekend.
