Thursday Morning Cupcheck - Five Rejected Ideas for the New Stars Jerseys
Stars owner Tom Gaglardi was concerned that some of these were actually "too metal."
For months Stars fans were on the edge of their beanbags wondering what it could be. Would the Stars unveil new uniforms? Would they announce their team captain for 2013-14? Would they finally admit to stabbing all those -- no, nevermind, it was just the uniform thing.
Fan reaction to the new uniforms was mixed. While some fans liked the color but hated the logo, other fans hated the color but loathed the logo. And while we must admit that making a silver ninja throwing star look like rancid dog a** is in itself an impressive feat, fans should rest assured that the Stars looked at as many as five other uniform designs before choosing this one.
Fortunately for both of you reading this, our crack team of Cupcheck fashionistas were able to squeeze enough chloroform from our office supply budget to get the five rejected uniform ideas. While we're partial to some over others, we invite the reading public to make their own decisions on the merits and flaws of each design. Also, #1 is clearly the best shut up.
