I LOVE Throwback uniforms. In basically any sport. For the most part every team has at least one awesome retro jersey. I say for the most part because boring ass teams like the Yankees have pretty much had the same uniform throughout franchise history. The NFL banned throwback uniforms in 2013 which just shows again how fucking stupid the NFL is. I know it's a "safety" issue because they don't want teams using multiple helmets but I think it's a stupid rule. The Patriots and Chargers throwback uniforms are some of the best in sports. It's a shame teams with different throwback helmets cannot wear throwback uniforms.
Tonight 8 MLB teams (in 4 games) will be wearing throwback uniforms in games.
Those games are the following;
Atlanta Braves at Cincinnati Reds (already in progress)
San Francisco Giants at Boston Red Sox (7:10 PM)
New York Mets at Chicago Cubs (already in progress)
Texas Rangers at LA Angels of Anaheim (dumbest name is sports) (10:05 PM)
Obviously I love the Sox 70's no button jersey but the best one here IMO is the San Francisco Giants. Love the orange look.
Some people don't like throwbacks, and I like to call those people wet blankets. Throwbacks are awesome. Idk if you haven't been able to tell yet from all of my blogs but I'm a big history and nostalgia guy. There's people who think stuff like this is gimmicky, which sure I guess it is, but it also is fun. Let's not forget that these are SPORTS, they're supposed to be fun. Most of these uniforms are awesome, the road grays are kinda boring but overall I'm glad these teams are doing it. My only issue is that only 8 teams are partaking in this, every team easily could throw on some old uniforms as well.
I think once a month there should be a throwback uniform day across all of Major League Baseball. How awesome would that be? If teams use a throwback as an alternate jersey, like I know the Giants, Mets and Pirates do, that's fine too, but it wouldn't count for my once a month idea. Like the last Wednesday of every month or something all teams could wear throwbacks. I think it's an awesome idea.
I think the NFL should have a similar thing going on, one week every season in the NFL all teams should wear throwbacks. They already have a MONTH of pink accessories, we can't get 1 game a season of throwbacks? Fuck you Goodell. I wanna see the Bucs creamsicle uni's!
