Entries in no hockey week (11)
Last time I did this No Hockey Week, the Freak Out Friday post featured Super Mario of video game fame. He's back this time a day early as designer Brian Brideau had a couple more ideas worth sharing. Definitely a creative mind at work here.
No-Hockey Week picks up with the NFL today. Jared Pozzobon suspects the Miami Dolphins might look a little something like this if they wore hockey uniforms. (See also, the IceHL's Tampa Bay Barracudas.)
At last, Election Day is here in the United States so the non-stop inundation of awful political advertising can finally come to a merciful end. But then, the day is still young. So enjoy this. David Paul Kerr's Democrat- and Republican-inspired jerseys were just wacky enough to earn a spot on the site today. (Don't ask me why the Republican jersey feature's Jaromir Jagr's name and number. I have as little insight as you.) Now be a good American and go vote!
There's no love for the NHL on this part of Icethetics these days. Not with this ridiculous lockout still going on. So after two weeks of minor league jerseys, I'm doing away with hockey teams altogether. It's another Non-Hockey Hockey Concept Week. We did one over the summer.
Dylan Alexander's work was heavily featured toward the end of that series and he gets us started with this one now. He's created four rather unique jerseys for the MLB's Chicago Cubs. Which one is your favorite?
Wrapping up No-Hockey Week is Dylan Alexander's tribute to MCA and the Beastie Boys. I think at this point we can safely say this feature has jumped the shark. Tomorrow we get back to actual hockey concepts... every day.
I'm not at all what you'd call a hardcore gamer, but when it comes to the Super Mario franchise, I can't get enough. That's why this is my favorite weekend of the year. Not only has Brian Brideau designed a Super Mario-inspired hockey sweater, but Mario Marathon 5 starts today!
Mario Marathon is an annual event in which a group of people in Indiana go nuts, playing Super Mario games nonstop while raising money for a charity that helps sick kids. They present a live stream of the marathon so everyone can watch their progress. It usually goes on for several days and always brings in an impressive amount of cash. I've watched bits and pieces of the marathon every year since they started, so I wanted to get in a plug.
While we're on the subject of video games, Dylan Alexander created this Pac Man hockey sweater which I think is pretty fantastic. Only thing it's missing is a Ms. Pac Man. No-Hockey Week wraps up tomorrow. Can you guess what the topic will be?
By the way, the Freak Out Friday feature returns next Friday. (Though if you think about it, Super Mario and Pac Man hockey jerseys are a bit freaky.)
