Crappin' You Negative

Yes, that is a real hockey jersey you see above, featuring a cow that just took a dump. It's from the El Paso Buzzards of the WPHL (later of the CHL). Having become annoyed with folks not paying any attention to them, the team briefly changed their name to the "Cow Pattys" back in 2001 as a publicity stunt and came up with this jersey. Don't believe me? You can read more here.

And so, as I continue to hammer away at the "ugly jersey" theme until people start giving me money to stop, here's this go-round's line-up of goofy-looking jerseys:

Shreveport Mudbugs (WPHL) '97-'98 Andrew Power jersey
(Collector: schurla27)

Wichita Thunder (CHL) '00-'01 Jerod Bina jersey
(Collector: enforcer44)
This one maybe isn't that bad, except for the pathetic "lightning"
that looks like someone left a blue Sharpie in the wash

Flint Generals (UHL) '98-'99 Christmas jersey
(Collector: flintman1970)

Flint Generals (UHL) '97-'98 winter-themed jersey
(Collector: flintman1970)
The vacant-looking snowman on the sleeves slays me

Peoria Rivermen (IHL) early '90s Geoff Sarjeant warmup jersey
(Collector: twisterx15x)

Augsburger Panthers (DEL) '04-'05 Mike Pudlick Halloween jersey
(Collector: ohwhensaints)
Not just a European specialty jersey, but a Mike Pudlick to boot!

Saguenay Fjord (LNAH) '04-'05 Yannick Dallaire jersey
(Collector: metropolit)
Even though the LNAH is mostly a fighter's league, it's still kinda
hard to look tough when you've got this jersey on...

San Diego Gulls (WCHL) '99-'00 B.J. MacPherson jersey
(Collector: nhlmvp70)

San Diego Gulls (WCHL) '98-'99 Sergei Visecorodcevs jersey
(Collector: nhlmvp70)
Fuck, yeah-- this guy's last name is even more confusing than mine

San Diego Gulls (WCHL) '01-'02 Samy Nasreddine Taylor Cup jersey
(Collector: nhlmvp70)
Commemorating the Gulls' Taylor Cup victory, obviously,
though it still looks kinda stupid

El Paso Buzzards (WPHL) '97-'98 Corey Fletcher jersey
(Collector:, one of the best jersey sites out there)

Peoria Rivermen (ECHL) '99-'00 Joe Rybar racing-themed jersey
(Collector: twisterx15x)

Peoria Rivermen (ECHL) '03-'04 David Kaczowka '57 Corvette jersey
(Collector: twisterx15x)
Good job of sticking a Maid-Rite ad right in the middle
and ruining an otherwise nice-looking jersey

Lakeland Loggerheads (WHA2) '03-'04 WHA2 Bob Clouston jersey
(Collector: schurla27)
Not so awful, though if you're a hockey player you probably
want to stay away from being marked like a turtle

Some jerseys for St. Patrick's Day (March 17th)...

San Antonio Iguanas (CHL) '01-'02 Brent Belecki St. Patrick's Day jersey
(Collector: possum187)

Richmond Renegades (ECHL) '98-'99 Trevor Senn St. Patrick's Day jersey
(Collector: stolidog1960)

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (AHL) '05-'06 St. Patrick's Day jersey

One last photo-- a Chicago Wolves (AHL) specialty jersey from this year:

I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a racing-themed jersey, or if the team just wanted to look like they'd been in a fire...

Alright, another Hawaiian jersey night!

That one's even goofier than the one the Admirals used, at first look at least.

Is that El Paso Cow Pattys cow the same one from Cow and Chicken, or what?

The mongoloid nostrils are a dead giveaway, and that jersey is a friggin' riot!

Those snowmen look like the figures Ovechkin draws on his sticks.

I always thought of the Peoria Rivermen as a nice sedate team -- but they're some of the most egregious offenders.

It was a racing themed jersey. The summer before that season they began sponsoring a local short track race car. They even gave away mini race cars that looked like the real thing later in the year.
