I'm here to talk about an email that I received on Friday from a placed called Designs On You from based out of Jasper, Alabama. Owned by Jeremy Hagood, A Alabama University Alumni, he started a project out of his company called "Sweet Home Hockey". Now, I'm sure you guys get the reference to the name, but the idea came from Jeremy's love for hockey and realization that hockey is a sport that needs help to grow in the state. So, Jeremy came up with the "Sweet Home Hockey" project as a way to generate donations towards all the teams that play in Alabama. If you want a one of the t-shirts that he's selling on pre-order right now, click here to buy a shirt. $15 of the money you spend goes to teams in Alabama.
Anyways, we currently have the World Hockey Jersey Competition going on right now as well as the typical COTW voting so get on that.
COTW May 5-11 vote (ends Friday @ noon ET)
WHJC entries (due Friday @ noon ET)
Onto the Concepts!
Adam G- Arizona Coyotes
Negatives: While I get the sleeve striping is suppose to be a gradient, gradient striping just isn't working with this color. It's not enough of a contrast.
Anthony C- Stouffville Spirit
Negatives: The straight stripes that you have on the sleeves look out of place on this uniform. It wouldn't be a bad idea to copy the Might Ducks jersey. Also, the numbers look a little high on the sleeves.
Anthony C- York Mills
Negatives: Those TV numbers look a little too low on the sleeves. Otherwise, maybe move the crest logo up a bit.
Dino W- Latvia
Negatives: The white jersey would have looked better if you made the sleeve stripes match the chest as well as making the outline on the back numbers white.
Jordan R- New York Americans
Negatives: This reminds me of the last Olympics jersey that the U.S. wore but better.
Lucas D- Dallas Stars
Negatives: The silver on the white jersey looks out of place.
Ryan C- Ottawa Senators
Negatives: The logos on the shoulders look out of place.
Ryan C- Tampa Bay Lightning
Overall: 9.5/10 COTW NOMINEE
Ok everybody that's all I have for you today. Remember to wish all the moms out there a happy Mother's Day and don't be a cheapskate and get a shirt from Jeremy. It's for a good cause. Have a good week everybody and I'll see you guys next week.
