Not only does this jersey have a rocket orbiting a basketball, but it is an angry rocket orbiting a basketball. Look at that sneer, I would not want to mess with that rocket. Come to think of it a pissed off rocket really is the best thing for Charles Barkley to wear. Well not the rocket part as much as the really angry part. I am almost positive that when Elton John wrote Rocket Man that he was not talking about Charles Barkley. Though I’ve been wrong before.
In what will almost definitely go down as the best move Michael Jordan has made during his time with the Charlotte Bobcats, the team will not only be going back to the Hornets name but will also go back to the purple and teal color scheme. And what welcoming news that is.
The Hornets have been on hiatus ever since, well this year when the New Orleans Hornets changed their name to the Pelicans. Honestly naming your team after a non threatening bird is one of the best strategies. But anyway this move lets the Charlotte Bobcats ditch their dreadful history and go back to a less horrible franchise name.
The purple and the teal. These colors are more 90s than any possible color combination. Seriously, I really cant think of a possible color scheme that is a better representation of the decade.
Clearly the marketing team in Charlotte was doing their job, the old Hornets colors have been selling like crazy recently. I’ve seen a ton of people rocking the old purple and teal hats, it’s just so stupidly awesome. So with that I say, welcome back purple and teal. And I guess welcome back…..Hugo the Hornet.
Great. Hugo is back. Awesome.
In the 90s the Buffalo Bills were actually good. They not only went to the Super Bowl four times, but they did it four straight times. And they kind of lost each time. But most importantly, they looked good doing it. I would like to think that this picture of one of their groundskeepers is showing us the standard attire of NFL workers. Zubaz pants, Zubaz hat, and even better it’s in the same color of the Bills logo.
You look at this and ask yourself ” who wouldn’t want to have their franchise represented by a cartoon duck exploding out of ice?” Nobody, that is the answer. As the years took us away from the 90s they also took us away from some of the most ludicrous jerseys that sports ever saw. I mean it’s not even just a ridiculous design but it is also teal.
Teal. How could that have ever been a bad idea.
