How to like the jerseys September 19, 2010

I’d like to give my readers a handy-dandy guide for how to like the new Sabres jerseys. Follow these simple steps and you’ll be enamored of them in no time!

  1. Forget that this is the 42,938,169th time in the past 15 years that the team has changed jerseys. Therefore, new jerseys=excitement!
  2. The silly racing stripey thingies on the home/away jerseys? Think of them as sweat-wicking bands, not ugly piping. They’ll be easier to ignore that way.
  3. That hellacious number design on the back of the 40th anniversary jersey is actually a cool Spider-Man motif.
  4. Opponents will be confused by all the different jerseys and have no idea who they’re playing.
  5. Don’t like how the blues are different on the 40th anniversary jersey and the regular jersey? Simple reason for that – guys look cool in sky blue!
  6. So how about those gray patches under the arms of the white jerseys? Hey – it’s better than the white turning gray with dirt and grime during the game. This patch will hide all that!
  7. Steve Montador looks hot in whatever jersey you put him in.
  8. They finally gave us cool laces on the front!
  9. Tyler Ennis/Nathan Gerbe etc don’t look quite as bite-sized in the new uniforms. Maybe the jerseys were designed specifically with our smaller players in mind. Whoa – just took a second look at some of the bigger guys. They look like hulks out there! The Jolly Blue Giant is quite frightening!
  10. AND THE BEST WAY TO LEARN TO LIKE THE JERSEYS: Remember this. In the white jersey Ryan Miller will blend in with his surroundings like a chameleon and the other team will shoot right into his chest protector all night long.

You’re welcome.

That hellacious number design on the back of the 40th anniversary jersey is actually a cool Spider-Man motif.

Um… about that. I’m really hoping that’s a “We had to get these numbers on real quick and we’re fresh out of velcro” temp fix and they’re supposed to be sewn on, you know, normally. And I’m going to keep on hoping till at least December that they haven’t gotten around to fixing them yet. No way do they actually think that looks good…?

The best part about new jerseys is the distraction they provide in how there is an awful of lot guys wearing them that I didn’t would be this year. Nice shirts, anything that kills the slug is a good thing, but I bet Tomas Kaberle would look good in em

From what I’ve heard Burke simply wants way too much for him, so it isn’t going to happen, but yes, Kaberle would look very pretty in the sky blue jersey…
