Orioles Uniform Unveiling: 25 hrs & Counting
<a href="http://www.thelosscolumn.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/christmas-gifts.jpg"><img src="http://www.thelosscolumn.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/christmas-gifts-133×200.jpg" alt="" title="surprise!" width="133" height="200" class="alignleft size-medium wp-image-1933" /></a>In case you’d forgotten or hadn’t heard, the new <b>Orioles</b> uniforms make their debut <a href="http://www.thelosscolumn.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/nov12invite.jpg" target="blank">downtown tomorrow at noon</a>. According to <b>Roch Kubatko</b>, it’s going to be a fairly <a href="http://masnsports.com/2008/11/sneak-peek.html" target="blank">star-studded affair</a>.
As you might have guessed, there’s been plenty of chatter leading up to the event. We all know that the road jerseys will once again declare <b>"Baltimore"</b>, and that there’s been an update of some sort to the hats. So far, though, the team has done a pretty good job keeping things under wraps.
<i>Pretty</i> good. I haven’t seen the jerseys, but I have seen the new hat. I actually love it, and I breathed a big sigh of relief when I saw it (nothing like <a href="http://mlb.imageg.net/graphics/product_images/pMLB2-1316831dt.jpg" target="blank">this horrifying bullshit</a>, thank god). But…I’m guessing there will be some folks who aren’t satisfied. Aren’t there always, after all.
I’m not going to post a pic or a link here, though, because I don’t want to play a role in spoiling the surprise. I figure if you want to see it you’ll have the ingenuity to track it down.
Or you can wait until the official unveiling tomorrow. I’ll be there and hopefully I’ll get the chance to take some photos. Either way I’ll put up a post with a full recap.
In the meantime, what the hell are the <b>A’s</b> doing by trading for <b>Matt Holliday</b>?
