After a roller coaster ride of September baseball, the 2011 MLB Playoff teams are now set.
(1) Philadelphia Phillies vs (4) St. Louis Cardinals
(2) Milwaukee Brewers vs (3) Arizona Diamondbacks
(1) New York Yankees vs (3) Detroit Tigers
(2) Texas Rangers vs (4) Tampa Bay Rays
Keeping in mind that the National League will have home field advantage due to winning the All-Star game, who do you think will win the 2011 World Series Championship?
Last weekend Foster the People performed at the Popped Festival here in Philly. We were pleasantly surprised to see Mark Foster showing some Philadelphia / Mitchell & Ness love in the new
Phillies Tailgate Vest.
Check out some images below.
Is Brooklyn in the house? Yes. Yes, it is. The man who once said, "I don't wear jerseys, I'm thirty-plus," is now going to be responsible for helping design the Brooklyn Nets' new uniforms. It was announced this week that Jay-Z will work alongside Nets brass and Adidas to help design the Nets' new uniforms for when the team moves into the Barclays Center in Brooklyn next year. From Rich Calder for The New York Post, "Jay-Z, Adidas, and the Nets are currently ironing out a logo for the Brooklyn Nets and deciding what colors their uniforms should be. No matter what, the logo will feature Brooklyn prominently because the club wants to tap into the borough's world-popular brand name, officials said."
Based on this rap mogul's talent and creativity, we are sure these uniforms will be nothing short of amazing. We are looking forward to the unveiling of the new uniforms and logo.
What do you think the new logo and uniforms should look like? We want to hear from you!
We saw a great quote from our friend Cormega on SLAM Online today and we thought we'd share it with you.
SLAM: In SLAM 81’s Dime Drop, when throwback jerseys were hot, you said it should be a privilege to wear throwbacks, not a fashion statement. Do you hate how they were treated like a trend?
Cormega: I think people don’t understand Mitchell & Ness is a nostalgia company. If you look at the people that wore Mitchell & Ness even before they were hot, the majority of them, who was it? Older men. Or white men coming from work. White men with button-up shirts and the jersey over it. A 6-year-old kid is not gonna appreciate a DiMaggio jersey or a guy that was on the Colts in 1950. When people stop wearing it, I just laugh because that means more for me! I have on a Mitchell & Ness hat right now—a New York hat. If they make a Rod Strickland jersey tomorrow, I’m on that.
Thanks to Cormega for understanding that Mitchell & Ness jerseys never go out of style.
