Get Ready To Be Horrified

Okay so I didn't want to go to bed before I got one more post in for today. (I go to bed by 7 PM because I have to be at work by 4 AM. I work on a TV morning show. Which should explain why I have so much time to do a blog like this. I get off work at noon. And that's enough parenthetical nonsense for one day.)

Anyway, this is what I have to offer. A joke.



If you don't get the reference, look below. For what served as the inspiration to this mockery, you have to get in your time machine and travel back to the 1995-96 season when the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim donned this monstrosity on a couple of rare occasions.



Probably the worst third jersey ever. And you want to know the worst part? I have one of them in my closet! And if you were thinking that part was the joke... no, sir. I actually bought one back in the day because I was 11 and thought it was so cool. Let the ridicule begin.

Anyway, how much do Sabres fans hate the Buffaslug?

As far as actual news for your Monday night, I'm afraid I'm at a loss. Maybe Wednesday we'll get to see the Vancouver Canucks' new uniforms. Maybe. That reminds me. I found a bunch of mock-ups and fan art, I believe, at Canucks Central. So we can all look forward to that tomorrow on the day before August 1.

If you know or hear of anything else, I'd be happy to hear about it. Leave me a comment. Thanks.

The V jerseys of the canucks (both black and gold/yellow) are A LOT more good looking that these. I have both pinned in evidence on my wall and it's nothing compared to these.

In fact, I like these jersey's. So please don't ever say that they are the worst jersey's in NHL history. These ones (ducks) are.

The kings were also ugly. But oh my god the Ducks are terrible.

I apologize to anyone who's been irreparably harmed by the viewing of these graphics. We should all just try to put it out of our minds for good.

Taking away the Buffaslug - the dumbest logo in all of sports (maybe, there are some pretty bad ones) and the breaking through the ice bit, the dark blue and gold work and the lines aren't bad. But, yeah, all-in-all, if I were unfortunate enough to be a Sabres fan to begin with, I'd root for another team if these were the jerseys!

i was actually at the hockey hall of fame on the weekend and that hideous ducks jersey is in behind glass, among some of the other vintage designs (the canucks genius stick-over-rink comes to mind)....

How much do we hate the slug? Not enough unfortunately. I was the one who tried to derail it when it was leaked out last summer. Sadly, we were a hot team, and the merchandise sold in droves (not to me, I only own the classics). So it looks like the slug will be with us for quite some time. Tragic, I know.

I love those old ducks jerseys... they're AWESOME... mainl because of the mascot... which by the way... the ducks need to bring back.

I drew that Sabres jersey back in September. And I don't recall giving anyone permission to post it elsewhere than http://boards.sportslogos.net

Chris said...

Apologies for that. That's not where I originally found the graphic but if you'd like me to add a link for you, I'd be delighted. Thanks for reading!

Roger Clemente said...

Apology accepted. I'm not too concerned. If your interested in posting my work, check out http://www.geocities.com/rogerclemente_isx and, if you can survive the rolling Jar Jar Binks background that I'm proud to say I made myself, check out the first four links to see lists of my work.

Chris said...

Very impressive work on your site! Also, that background was insane. My head is still spinning. Anyway, I've added a link for you and I hope you're enjoying the tournament!
