For the past decade, one of the staples on the Chicago White Sox annual home promotional schedule is “Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day,” a celebration of Irish heritage and culture for Chicagoland residents coming to U.S. Cellular Field, and a reason for the uniform-inspired Sox to don the green as well.
The White Sox are off on the official St. Paddy’s Day halfway mark this month, so they’ll hold the promotion Friday night hosting Kansas City. The green-accented version of the home jersey is the third such color the Sox will wear this season, joining the standard, great looking circa 1991 addition, and this year’s Sunday home game red return to 1972.
We liked the way the Giants player’s names looked on the back of the jersey, and have always marveled about the unusual shade of metallic silver/blue pants the Cowboys wear with the white jersey, especially contrasted against the deep blue socks. They almost look blue with a tint of green.
Authentic Store Buzz: Anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Eagles green Nike Elite jerseys which will be Michael Vick’s number 7 (pictured above) and LeSean McCoy’s number 25. The Birds open Sunday in Cleveland.
More details tomorrow on our great upcoming event with Left Field Cards artist and founder Amelie Mancini. Mark down Thursday, October 4 from 6-8:00 pm at our Center City Philly location.
Authentically Speaking Trivia Time: What year did the Pro Bowl players begin wearing their own team’s logo on their helmets? Answer coming on Friday.
Wednesday’s answer: The last time the New York Giants wore white at home against any opponent was in the 2000 season opener against the Cardinals, as head coach Jim Fassel wanted to wear white in case it was a hot day.
Well, it was only 78 degrees for the late afternoon kickoff, but Big Blue’s new white jersey with red numbering looked nice, and the Giants won 21-16 (notice how the Giants were a Nike fitted team in 2000).
