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
Wichita Thunder (CHL) '00-'01 Jerod Bina jersey
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
Flint Generals (UHL) '97-'98 winter-themed jersey
The vacant-looking snowman on the sleeves slays me
Peoria Rivermen (IHL) early '90s Geoff Sarjeant warmup jersey
Augsburger Panthers (DEL) '04-'05 Mike Pudlick Halloween jersey
Not just a European specialty jersey, but a Mike Pudlick to boot!
Saguenay Fjord (LNAH) '04-'05 Yannick Dallaire jersey
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
San Diego Gulls (WCHL) '98-'99 Sergei Visecorodcevs jersey
Fuck, yeah-- this guy's last name is even more confusing than mine
San Diego Gulls (WCHL) '01-'02 Samy Nasreddine Taylor Cup jersey
Commemorating the Gulls' Taylor Cup victory, obviously,
though it still looks kinda stupid
El Paso Buzzards (WPHL) '97-'98 Corey Fletcher jersey
(Collector: hockeyjimm.com, one of the best jersey sites out there)
Peoria Rivermen (ECHL) '99-'00 Joe Rybar racing-themed jersey
Peoria Rivermen (ECHL) '03-'04 David Kaczowka '57 Corvette jersey
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
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
Richmond Renegades (ECHL) '98-'99 Trevor Senn St. Patrick's Day jersey
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...
