Half A Million!

Just thought I'd mention that today the blog surpassed the half-million hit mark. Quite a feat! I can't believe how popular this site has become. When I started it, I was lucky to have 100 hits in a day. Now I'm averaging well over 20,000. I'm glad you guys are enjoying the content and I hope I can continue to provide it. As of the time of this post, I've had 515,589 hits since mid-May. A very nice milestone, to be sure. If I had a bottle of champagne, I'd crack it over all of your noses. Thanks so much for visiting!

Wild Uniforms Coming September 7

According to Michael Russo of Minneapolis' Star Tribune, the Minnesota Wild will likely unveil their new Rbk EDGE uniforms on Friday, September 7. I've added that date to the sidebar countdown.

It's Official! Canucks Unveiling Unis August 29

Canucks fans, you've waited what must've felt like a lifetime for official word from your team and now it's here.

The Vancouver Canucks have announced that they will be unveiling their new Rbk EDGE uniforms on August 29 at GM Place. And based on that picture of Roberto Luongo, they look very white.

The date is already in the sidebar, but now it comes officially from the team which is what we've been waiting for. Should be an exciting day. As the graphic says, the uniforms will be unveiled at 12:30 PM so as soon as images are available, I'll post them here. We're expecting to see something similar to the alleged leaks that I've posted — likely the orca logo recolored to green, blue and silver a la the old days.

In the meantime, the announcement is on the team's official web site. Enjoy!
