Botched or beautiful?
When it comes to the merits of team jerseys, it’s all in the eye of the beholder, of course.
Keeping that in mind, it was hard to muster even fake outrage -- or perhaps vacation had something to do with it -- when an ESPN blog recently ranked the Kings' jersey dead last in the NHL. That was simply hard to take seriously if you closely look at the competition.
But anything connected with the upcoming Olympics in Sochi, Russia, is a different matter. Nonchalance is not an option.
USA Hockey unveiled the 2014 Nike U.S. Olympic jersey on Tuesday morning, and it didn’t take long for the reviews to start streaming in via social media. Team USA was trending on Twitter in the afternoon and reviews were tough in the corners.
Five minutes for fashion misconduct!
Cannot get over how bad those Team USA jerseys look. The stars and fake laces look tacky as hell and the K-Swiss looking crest? #MyEyesHurt
