    Default Someone Needs to Stop Nike (Olympic Jerseys)

    I feel like the USA and Canada are gonna be playing in the RHI against the Anaheim Bullfrogs, using a glowpuck.


    As described by USA Hockey, jersey highlights include:

    - The inspirational slogan of Land of the Free - Home of the Brave hidden in the back neck of the jersey
    - Injected silicone molds make the trim pop
    - Graphic on the sleeve was inspired by bald eagle feathers and represents the theme of fluid force
    - The flicker film (rather than heavy twill) base for the crest and numbers increases vibrancy and sparkles under arena lights.











    And Canada didn't fair much better.

    Some graphic designer must be very proud of his/her shadow work. You went to art school for that? Come on!! Cut off your ear, booty bump molly and paint me something in your own blood. Sell out.

    I really like the Canada ones. I'm stuck in the '80s, clearly.

    And, I noticed they stayed away from too much red on the USA ones since we will most likely play Canada as usual for a medal. (guess that's why the most recent design was mostly blue as well)

    GO KINGS GO!!!

    Note that the "shadows" on those maple leaves, like the USA crest and front letters, and the Nike swooshes, are the "flicker film," so they'll be shiny under the lights. You can kinda see that in the pictures of the white and black jerseys.




    Questions I have:

    - If the sleeves on the USA jerseys are supposed to be inspired by eagle wings, then are the Canadian sleeves supposed to be reminiscent of the grand Canadian tiger?

    - Are the USA sure the other teams are going to know that they're playing the USA? I think the USA jerseys need to say USA one or two more times. USA.

    - What's with the weird rectangle at the front of the collar? Did they decide to do away with the laces last minute and just sew in an odd piece of fabric?

    Where are the racing stripes to make it look like they're skating faster?

    1. Why would you hide "Land of the Free, Home of the Brave" in the inner collar?

    2. What's hidden in Canada's inner collar? "Cooo, loo, coo, coo, coo, coo, coo, coooo"?

    Canada's jersey has hidden pockets in the sleeve to hold Tim Bits.

    To be fair, with no NHL players, these teams will basically be minor leaguers.
