Now that LAS is back and cranking again, we’re hitting the ground running. 412 Lax‘s Sunday post on Oregon’s lacrosse uniforms has infected me with the customizer bug. I can’t stop creating uniforms for teams that are in need of some help so expect to see a lot more “recommendations” to programs out there doing less than they could.
What a coincidence, we have one right now!!
Cornell Could Use an Update
Cornell has a new coach. Jeff Tambroni is gone (off to Penn State) so maybe there is room for a little conservative experimentation. Perhaps there is. The simple, all red or all white helmets with an offset color chin are classic. Those should never change. But their uniforms would look great with some simple adjustments.
I’m not asking them to dress like a summer club team. It’s still Ivy League quality, it’s still smart and sophisticated and there isn’t THAT much grey. This would be far from a big change for Cornell. I would also give them high praise if they just went red shorts and white jerseys with no trim at all. The numbers would be red and only on the jerseys, while the shorts would have a white Nike swoosh and a white C on them. That’s it.
Sometimes it’s just about material quality and craftmanship. __________________________________________________________________________________________
Lacrosse Failure – It Happens to the Best of us.
I had no idea Canadians took dives. Shocked. SHOCKED I tell ya!
Growing the Game #1
Up in the Bronx there’s lacrosse being played that I had NO idea about. I feel like I’m pretty tuned in to the NYC lax scene, but I always love learning that it’s even bigger than I thought. This is how the game spreads the right way: grass roots! Also, did you know you never just say “Bronx”? I mean, I just did but that’s not what I mean. It’s always THE Bronx. Kind of like the Vatican, the Hague, the Bahamas, the Netherlands and the Gambia. I had to look that last one up. Neat.
How cool is this? Seriously, how cool is this? Thanks to Jeff Sobey for the great shots!
Boxy Box Goodness
The NLL season is less than 2 months away. This Boston Blazers promo isn’t anything new, but it is a high quality video, and that definitely counts for something in this day of fuzzy handheld vid. Tip of the ol’ Boston Brahmin Bowler to the Blazers PR team. It’s not really that hard, but no one else seems to be able to pull it off very well. On the floor, I think the Blazers could definitely contend this year but we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
Nazareth could look GOOD!
NCAA Division 3 team Nazareth has purple and gold as their official colors, but they’ve been adding grey in there for years now. This helmet isn’t much of a departure from what they’ve done in the past, but if they were thinking of going all white in 2011, I hope this mockup dissuades them.
Purple jerseys and grey or silver shorts with yellow trim? Done deal for an away uniform. Home? All white. Or white with yellow or grey shorts. Keep the helmets on. Case close-ed.
