So tonight is Retro Uniform Night, apparently, at Petco Park. Now, the Red Sox don't look too odd...basically, they just look like they're wearing Yankees unis with "Boston" on the front instead of "New York." Which, okay, is pretty distubing and might bother me more...

...Were it not for the Padres' retro unis. And here I thought the mid 80's Vancouver Canucks outfits were bad! But these...Wait, these are their 80's (er, excuse me, I guess that's supposed to be "80'z") uniforms? Because they're screaming 1973. Brown, Orange and Yellow? I believe my mom's kitchen were those exact colours when I was 8.

But you know what gets me the most? It may just be because I'm a bit of a font geek, but...your team's name in all lower-case type? What, was e.e. cummings their general manager back then? Because I thought the idea was put up an intimidating front, and I just don't see the teams name in all lower case being particularly...impressive.

Well...I suppose it could be worse...we could be playing 80'z Retro Night in Houston.

Hey now! We all use to rock the brown and gold in the 80's here! It might be ugly but we are proud Padres!

Check out our boy, Goose!

ahem.
the canucks won playoff games when they wore those jerseys. they could come back, really!

being a canucks fan is kind of like the person who says they're going to quit drinking after tonight...seven nights a week...365 days a year.

also the faux-yankees uniforms scare the hell out of me too.
