— ICETHETICS EXCLUSIVE —
We're less than a week away from the official unveiling of Team USA's jerseys for the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. And while I haven't yet come across a date for Team Canada's Olympic sweaters, I do have a first look for Icethetics readers.
Kind of what a lot of fans were expecting. Classic, old-time hockey feel. Very impressive. Same with the white ones.
The red shoulder yoke keeps the sweater from looking washed out. Now you're probably all wondering about that odd-looking crest, wanting a closer view. Check this out.
The subtle nod to the style of the Vancouver Olympics artwork all but makes these jerseys perfect. I'm no Canadian so I want to know what you guys think of these.
By the way, for those not in the loop, the reason this was such a big deal is that with the announcement that national federation logos would no longer be permitted as crests on Olympic jerseys (i.e.: Hockey Canada, USA Hockey, etc.), many wondered what the new sweaters would look like. Now you know.
For those who haven't heard, it's worth pointing out again. Team Canada will officially unveil these jerseys on Monday afternoon. Team USA will do the same. I will, as always, have pictures to share.
By the way, welcome Toronto Star readers! Once you get your fill of the Olympic jerseys, have a look around the site. I'm sure you'll find something you like.
