The more astute of you have probably already seen photos of the new uniforms that will be unveiled at the All-Star Game next week and then be used by the entire league next season.
I guess they’re OK since I originally had visions of something out of the movie “Rollerball” (minus L.L. Cool J and Co.).
But seeing how I’m a hockey traditionalist—wooden stick, no shield, even a blood stain down the front of my jersey—I never had a problem with the old ones (and by the way, if you just read my description of myself and think I’m sort of tough guy, I should probably also mention I’m afraid of roller coasters and recently rented “Must Love Dogs” with the Mrs.).
It’s all about growing the game, or so I’m told, and if this is another stab at getting hockey to the masses, then I suppose I’m for it. And if that doesn’t work, I say we then go for LL Cool J.
