Could be worse

I have been very outspoken about the fact that I did not like the loss of the green sweaters. Minnesota has always been associated with having green sweaters, that's just how it is. I still do not like the loss, but they didn't make the new sweater awful or anything, so I guess I should count my blessings. All they did was add weird piping to the third jersey and raise the price a whole bunch. They are now tremendously spendy, so I guess I can banish any thoughts of buying a sweater between now and the time that I get a job that pays extremely well. I'm kind of wondering why the Wild aren't special enough to have pictures of players modeling them for us. All the other teams get to...apparently our players weren't on hand, or are boycotting them.

In other news, Scott Niedermayer is still taking way, way too long to decide what he's going to do. He's either an attention whore, really indecisive, or just doesn't really care about the rest of the world since he lives in his own little happy, perfect world.

I redid the colors of the blog, just to mix it up a bit. I'm not sure if they look ok or not, since I don't really have a creative eye...hence the science major.

I'm a fan of them, Kirsten. It could be worse (see: the Islanders). Since altenate jerseys are coming back next season, I would hope Minnesota would bring back a green one.

It seems so weird that Minnesota would go with red after so many other teams in the league use that as their "primary" color - Detroit, Calgary, the Caps just went back to it, the Canadiens, Ottawa... Green was less common and I think made the team stand out a little more. At least they're sticking with the darker red, which sets them apart a little.

Hopefully next season they will have the green be the "third jersey". The red is technically called "iron range red", to point out that the top 1/3 to 1/2 of the state the economy relies heavily on mining, and tons of really good hockey players have come from up there.

Huh, I didn't know that :) I actually really like the color red that Minnesota uses, you'd just think they'd want to stand out a little more. At least there's some reason behind it, though (and one that doesn't take seven years to explain; I'm looking at you Oilers third jersey).
