Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in the War to Ditch the Black (that’s a long title) Paul Lukas reports on Uni Watch:
According to multiple sources, all of whom I trust, the black drop shadow will not be appearing on the Mets’ home uniforms next season. Halle-freakin’-lujah!
We still don’t know many pieces of the puzzle.
Will they wear pinstripes at home? Are we getting pinless but somehow retro-ish?
What about numbers on the front as Paul mentions?
What happens on the road?
What about the hybrid caps? Black caps?
One man’s guesses, based upon nothing:
Pinstripes and blues at home. The pinless stay in rotation so they can return as primary in 2013. Again just a guess.
Still the wild west on the road with plenty of black to keep me in my place.
Much more on Uni Watch.
I’m going to go find out how we can rent a subway car for the signing of the Treaty of Flushing.
And so I find myself one step closer to the end of my journey. The stated goal has been to shut down the blog once the Mets win the World Series while dressed nicely. I don’t want the Mets Police to devolve into bugging the Mets about the fonts on the pocket schedules.
Could it be that in 14 months I post some pictures of a champagne-drenched David Wright? Or will they win it all on the road wearing black behind RA Dickey, forcing me to blog another year (or 25)?
Maybe Dave from Flushing will continue to feel nostalgic and trot out a Banner Day and/or Old Timers’ Day as part of the 1962 feel good..thus crossing off a few other items. Wouldn’t it be great if Dave takes away my reasons for existing?
Think about it – how much did I complain about Los Mets? Yet, it’s Los Mets that have brought us to this place. It’s like the Cylons helping the Galactica find Earth.
I feel like Adama, looking around at all the Cylons, with Earth out the window…wondering what do I do now? It’s a wonderful place to be.
When the new jerseys arrive, what should I buy? I already own a Mazzilli (it has dropshadow, I’m a blogger not a millionaire). Murphy? Niese? New Cool Trendy Free Agent? Stearns?
I think I am going to meet up with General Lukas. That will be like a date. What do I wear? I can’t wear anything with dropshadow – he and his friends will beat me up in the schoolyard.
I could go with the dropshadowless road jersey I bought off Goon, but what if it turns out to be some crazy Chinese knockoff?
I’m thinking I go with 83 Seaver. It speaks to who I am, and it’s “official” so even if there’s something inaccurate on it it’s not my fault. The downside is that it’s a pullover so I will look fatter and frumpier…but then again this isn’t actually a date. (Thanks for today’s shout-out Paul!)
My other idea is to go Swoosh Jersey. Then he’ll know I’m in it just for fun.
