When it comes to NFL throwback jerseys we have seen Mitchell and Ness and Reebok provide us with our options in the past but now that Nike has the NFL On Field License we are starting to see some “throwback” offerings from the swoosh. Nike is putting a different spin on the concept by using the past player name and number and pairing it with the current uniform design. A smart move by the Nike folks since it’s common to see the black market bootleggers product these jerseys all the time. Go to a flea market or an NFL stadium on a Sunday and you’ll be astounded by the amount of fakes that people wear. That’s a separate story for another time.

The calendar tells us that we are over two months away from the Winter Olympics but that isn’t stopping us from getting excited about USA Hockey at the Winter Games 2014.

One of our favorite jackets on the market right now is the Nike Defender Reversible Jacket. We’ve seen it for a few weeks at least for NFL teams but today we stumbled across it for a handful of college teams as well. It is a very lightweight jacket with a great feel but at the same time does a great job of keeping you warm on those cold winter days and if you spill your drink on it at the game just turn it around and wear the other side.

There has been a lot of chatter lately about the NBA and their creation of some new special Christmas Day jerseys for the teams involved and in action that day. Some hate the sleeves, others hate the big logos and lack of numbers on the front, some folks are okay with the change. All in all its a plethora of opinion on what laundry the teams will wear that day. Usually when these debates arise on special team uniforms we tend to side with the pro-change opinion. Maybe it’s because we like new stuff, maybe its the marketing aspect of the new uniform that intrigues us, I’m not sure. I just know that when it’s all said and done it’s just a piece of laundry that the team is wearing on a limited basis, it’s not that serious. It’s not like the team is going to be wearing tutus all season long.
The most interesting thing to me about these special jerseys and the fact that Adidas is really pushing the short sleeve jersey is whether this short sleeve silhouette will take hold with the fans at the retail level. Will Adidas see a spike in jersey sales of the short sleeve nature as opposed to the traditional look? It seems like an idea worth exploring from the Adidas end. I mean once you reach a certain age it is just odd to be wearing a sleeveless basketball jersey in public. Now if the jersey has short sleeves and was more like a t-shirt then that would “feel” more natural to the casual wearer. Hmmmm ….. I’d love to see sales figures at some point to see if my hypothesis is accurate.
Anyway, if you are looking to get your hands on one of these new NBA Christmas Day Jerseys look no further. They have now hit the web and are ready for consumption.
