Can you believe this is already the 32nd installment of the Freak Out series? Who knew it would go this long? What's interesting about this week's post is what comes at the end and the fact that it's real and not concocted in the freakish mind of one of the many readers of NHLToL. No, it's quite real and that's what freaks me out the most.
But first, let's talk third jerseys. We know they're making their big comeback next season after having taken a year off. We'll begin in Vancouver.
But wait, there's more!
And I'm sure this was just a case of colors lost in translation.
Doesn't make me feel any better. I'm all right with the purple on the Kings' uniforms because it's partnered with black and silver.
Here's a Lightning jersey even I wouldn't consider buying.
And a Sens sweater absolutely no one would.
But hold on, why one team at a time? Let's go for all 30 all at once.
A good try to be sure, but I'm afraid a few too many of these missed the mark in terms of what one might consider, you know, aesthetically pleasing. (What the hell kind of sentence was that?)
It's worse when you make it look real by painting it onto a player.
And now for the little thing I was teasing at the beginning of this post. I know it's not NHL, but I'm making an exception. The AHL's Lake Erie Monsters, this season, actually wore jerseys that... I'm sorry, there's no other way of putting this. They were tie-dyed. Behold the horror.
Because one photo wasn't enough...
Peace. Love. And hockey.
And now I'm just going to go put forks in my eyes. Until tomorrow, friends.
