New road thirds?

OK, not really, but we are wearing our thirds tonight in Toronto. Reason why? Toronto has white thirds.

As much as I hate to admit it, I do own an authentic RBK (2006-07) Roy home Slug jersey. Side-by-side, this jersey puts that one to shame. I also have an authentic RBK (2006-07) Pominville third (royal blue throwback.) This jersey looks far more modern, but still has an old-school feel. Sure, there are a few details that I would change (e.g., silver piping), but that does little to take away from the fact that this a great looking jersey.

That's more like it!

Sabres blanked the Kings 5-0 to move the thirds to 3-1 for the season. The play was ugly and the goals were anything but pretty, but damn did those jerseys still look good.

(Don't ask me what's going on it that pic.)

Third Jersey, Game 4

Sabres will wear their thirds for the fourth time this season when they face the LA Kings tonight at 7:30.

Time to make amends for the last game in the thirds and, perhaps more importantly, for the last two (at least) home games. You're going to look the part, now play it, too!

Edit: I love seeing these ...

Go Sabres!

Buffalo Bisons new logo unveiling...

Yesterday the Buffalo Bisons unveiled the team's new logo which correlates with the team's new affiliation with the New York Mets.

I'm only speaking for myself right now and not the rest of the guys that contribute here but I have a few words that came to mind the instant I saw the logo:

Relevant. Symbolic. Exciting. Hey, that's not a goathead, not a slug, there is no doubt that it's a Bison!

I like the NYC skyline in front, behind the Queen City skyline. It is a little too busy in details with the Bison but forgiveable considering that it CLEARLY looks like a Bison. Too abstract, you get the slug, too detailed, goathead. It is very respectful of the new partnership and there is some real thought and care was put into the logo's creation. I had an instant positive connection to the logo and it seems very well received by the public. I wasn't a big fan of the sliding malnurished Minotaur in the green and red. This is a nice upgrade in both the color scheme and logo set. I am anxiously awaiting to see the uniforms in January. That could make or break the whole package. Hopefully the new duds include some classic Mets pin stripes and even possibly a different logo on the hats.

My hats off to Phoenix Design Works, the Bisons, and the Mets who put together a terrific new identity.

Ugh ...

I kinda wish that they had changed their jerseys before the third period. They definitely didn't earn the right to wear them in that period. All they needed was one more goal (*cough* ... Stafford ... *cough*) to reach 10,000 for the franchise. Would have been nice to do it in the original logo. But, alas, no.

Third Jersey, Game 3

The Sabres look to extend two streaks tomorrow (Friday, 12/12) night against Toronto: (1) a three game win streak (quite the difference from the first two times that they wore the thirds), and (2) their two game win streak (2-0 starting with their debut) in their new thirds. Keep 'em going boys!
