I was watching the Jaguars last season and started thinking to myself that with a couple tweaks, their new uniforms could go from god-awful to pretty darn nice. I switched out the new helmet for basically their weird shiny black/teal helmet from their 2009 redesign but with the new logo. I kept the jerseys the same but gave them a more traditional pants striping, and I eliminated the black pants. I would make the blue jersey the primary with the black as the alternate, if it were up to me. Sorry for the crappy paint copy/paste job on the photos – Somebody with some photoshop skills could probably make these a whole lot sweeter. ~ Scott from Charlotte, NC. I agree, I like the uniforms, but they are no way a throwback to 1985. The typeface is wrong, looks like the typeface from early 1990s if anything. And I don’t think we have ever worn the official cat logo on the pants, it was always some variation. “The resurgent Chicago Cubs new spring training ballpark and player development center kicks off Series II of Classic Baseball Scoreboards. He almost looks like a character out of the “Trailor Park Boys”. There’s certain irony in the Cleveland Browns logo re-branding, a complete non-event, that generated more news than almost any other logo/uniform relaunch, in that it symbolized the incompetence of an organization (i. e. they can’t even get a logo...
The house was not perfect but, after our humpy it seemed a palace to us. It had four rooms and was built of *jarrah with polished jarrah lining throughout, and we made ourselves quite comfortable there. Unfortunately white ants had moved in at some time but they did no worry us and they may have left because we did not fall through floors or walls. " (I may be wrong but I seem to remember, as a small child, discovering a room on the back of the house that had no floorboards but you could walk in there on the bearers. Milking was done by hand and separating by hand operated machine. The herd increased and we took the cream to the siding regularly and received a good monthly cheque. This is the only photo of 'The Pines" that I have and it was probably taken a year or two before I was born, ca 1930-31. I have a nice little collection of tiny black and white photographs taken in the early 1930s). . "The herd had now increased... The unfortunate thing about cows is that they never have a day off and neither do you if you are milking them.
On September 14, 2001, I stood in my kitchen on crutches, having fractured my fibula 2 weeks earlier, watching the television on the counter, in tears of the deepest emotions, and watched a worldwide prayer service unfold on the screen. It was 3 days after the worst terrorist attack on United States soil, and I remember when the services in Canada were shown. There was a beautiful blue sky, and the majestic clock tower of our Parliament building stretching up into the sunlight. I never lost that - I never fooled myself into thinking Canada would never be attacked. In events that shocked the world, and shattered mine, we were attacked. It wasn't a massive attack in terms of lives lost. It came 2 days after another attack - one that took place just 45 minutes away from my sleepy suburb. One that killed a soldier, and one that was classified "terror" just hours after it happened. But there was something so surreal about seeing the capital of Canada, an iconic building in that capital, and the symbol of our very democracy, under attack. There was something so bizarrely shocking about seeing our country's capital city portrayed on U. S. news networks in a terrorist attack framework, broadcasts that lasted through the entire day, many without even taking a commercial break.
