channeling the Astros throwback jerseys
The tip-off to a new season is only a few weeks away(pun very much intended). So what should be on your mind besides making it to the chip and winning it all? Looking great as you do it. Plus I know just the right look to fix that, The Elite Louisville package. And the good news about this package is teams will be too focus on your jerseys how/where to get them, that the competition will be little to none and hopefully with that your team can ride the luck Louisville had and win it all.

Well everybody......... The hunt is over, and just in time to show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month or better said in the sports terminology world as "Saving Second Base". What else would look better than fighting for a W in pink camo while standing up to the fight against Breast Cancer at the same time? Don't worry I can wait........(nothing).......... cause I can't come up with a better look than this Elite Camo Rama package. Plus choose your style by showing off the team as "On the field vets" in three color traditional or "Leaders of the new school" in four color digital. Either way you look at it, its a win-win. You're standing up for a good cause and looking good as you do it.

Leopard, zebra, tiger, elephant, alligator, OH MY! - all now viable decoration options. The ability to customize with sublimation technology (dying the patterns directly into the fabric) has definitely helped bring this type of uniform style to a whole new level! And it's not just the uniforms that are getting the jungle makeover - accessories, such as socks and hats have also been spotted with wild prints.

If your eyes haven't been following the CWS (College World Series), don't worry - you didn't travel back in time. The retro look is just stepping out of its time capsule and making a comeback. Louisville, NC State and Mississippi State are going for the 70's/80's look of the Houston Astros and Chicago White Sox. I have to say "I can dig it"! At least it's easy on the eyes, unlike their basketball uniforms from this years tournament.
On the other hand, I remember a trend in the NFL awhile back (and the NBA) to add black to the color scheme of every team. Even where it made no sense whatsoever. I was living in LA at the time, which coincided with Al Davis' Oakland Raiders brief stay in that football phobic metropolis. Even in my hometown of Philly, the Eagles have, most regrettably awkwardly infused the color black strategy. Thankfully, those fashion-forward, but football forgettable uniforms are kept shuttered in for most of any season. And a quick peek at the 3 uniforms below should be all the proof you need to understand why. A splash of black on a jersey? Awesome. Mostly black jersey? Looks great at the mall. On the football field? I don't buy it.
The formerly the Charlotte, NC-based NBA team, where the name --Hornets--once more made sense and never has down on the Bayou.
Don't even get me started on the ridiculous naturalistic anomoly of the LA Lakers, a city that, prior to the late 19th century was essentially a DESERT!
But it seems that the New Orleans Pelicans are set to fly into the NBA in the 2013-14 season.
It seems, at least to the team owner Tom Benson, that Pelicans will resonate much more with the local community. Really?!?! Or has Mardi Gras started early in the executive offices?
Wait...It's not a long season?!?!
Anyhoo, the folks over at Bleacher Report took this opportunity to reflect on the state of unis in hockey. Some takes on the subject had me in stitiches, so I thought I'd share their thoughts with, as we say in Flyer Nation, "Youz Guyz"
