The Filibuster

What’s your favorite throwback jersey?

I feel like this question could have been better addressed by Jeff.  Without a doubt, he would have said it was one of those old-timey woolen uniforms, perhaps even that of his beloved-like-an-adopted-child AL team, the Chicago White Stockings:

But me, I look for something a little more timeless.  I’m not talking Pittsburg Pirates timeless, either, as in, ugly no matter what era it exists in:

No, what I have in mind is something simple and elegant, like Carey Grant in a tuxedo:

Surprisingly enough, that combination of simplicity and elegance in sports finds itself draping the frames of the very definition of futility, the Detroit Lions:

Hey, they may not be good but at least they can look good doing it.

There you have it.  My favorite throwback, the Detroit Lions.

That post just made me want to go watch an old Cary Grant movie. I think I’ll pick “The Philadelphia Story.” Thanks!

It’s gotta be the old Astros jerseys from the 70′s and 80′s. You all love them…you just won’t admit it…

I’ll agree the Pirates jerseys were ugly, but that’s part of the reason they were so cool. Anything with colour that is different from the norm is ok with me.
