I’m getting tired of the Summer. This is the worst time of year for sports. Seriously. The frantic NBA trades around the time of the draft are over, rosters are essentially solidified with the exception of summer league longshots, and there’s no college football yet to get the sports year going.
Sure, locally RSL is decent to fill the empty sports hours, but it’s getting to that point where I want to watch the big dogs in action.
So with that little intro, I’m going to break down the new Jazz unis.
I’m going to be honest…I wanted just the note on the jersey. I do like it on the shorts, but I wanted it on the jersey. I’m wondering why the Jazz went back to the old logo with a new”ish” color scheme? Is it nostalgia? Is it what the fans were asking for? Marketing department wanted? I do overall like them, just preferred the note.
The other factor, is now we don’t have the green unis. I remember the first time we busted those out last season, I just thought they looked terrible. TERRIBLE! But man, as the season wore on and more fans at the ESA were sporting the green colored retros….they grew on me. Now I’m going to miss them.
I don’t think there’s ever been a bad Jazz jersey, although the purples with the mountains in the background kind of toe the line. I think at the time we were all so ready for a change, we were down with just about anything. But, when they went from the mountains, back to last years primary unis, that was….well, let’s say that was a good day.
I still am not sure if the new roadies are purple or navy blue. A little help?
So, let’s hear some opinions. You guys like em’?
