$1.1 Billion Gets You… Brand Synergy! (and Pretty Cool Eagles Sneakers)

Eagles Air Max 95 (No-Sew) – NFL Draft Pack – picture via counterkicks For those wondering what Nike would do with the NFL license after the disappointingly and expectly overhyped unveiling ceremony, they finally showed some of the benefits of their freshly enacted apparel deal with their 2012 “NFL Draft Pack” of sneakers. Gimmicky, but I like […]

This Week in Yinzer Fashion: 2012 Steelers Throwbacks

from the Steelers.com Gallery of the Press Conference Adding one last dig to our neighbors to the west before tonight’s (hopefully) decisive hockey game, the Steelers did us a favor showcased their new-for-2012 throwbacks yesterday. Yikes. Gone is the 60s-inspired alternate with its trademark yellow helmet. I never loved the previous throwback, but they were perfectly harmless, and a nice […]

Breaking Down The 2012 NFL/Nike Uniform Unveiling

I’m really, really surprised Kyle managed to not open his earlier article with one of his patented, lengthy comparisons between some sports-related event and some (hypothetical) relationship or “girl” story with expectations as high as they were. It would’ve practically written itself. Of course, the high expectations were generated completely by Nike (and some widely circulated fan renderings made in the […]

UniDiction 2011: Week 16 – Eagles vs. Cowboys and Week 15 Round-Up

follow me on twitter (@dancfuller) Again, the Eagles one, I won. Good deal. Week 15 Round-Up A little more uniform action in Week 15 than we’ve seen in a while. The Chargers wore their powder blue throwbacks, which are better than the normal Chargers uniforms, but like some of the other (loud) throwbacks (Bucs, I’m […]

UniDiction 2011: Week 14 – Eagles vs. Dolphins and Week 13 Round-Up

I lost; the Eagles lost. It was an ugly game for every possible reason. Let’s just not talk about it. Week 13 Round-Up   The Buccaneers wore their Creamsicle throwbacks against the Panthers, which are ugly, but in that “so bad it’s good, but no more than twice a season, please” sort of way.   […]

UniDiction 2011: Week 13 – Eagles vs. Seahawks and Week 12 Round-Up (new format!)

follow me on twitter (@dancfuller) Well, I was wrong for last week’s game, too. 3-8. Of course, there was nothing right about the Eagles on-field performance, either. There’s an all-new format for the UniDiction section which I think you’ll like, so let me know what you think in the comments. Week 12 Round-Up The Chargers […]

The Muppets

The Muppets have always been a big inspiration to me. I grew up watching reruns of The Muppet Show, the 9 episodes of The Jim Henson Hour that aired before it was cancelled, the movies, Muppet Babies, Fraggle Rock, Sesame Street and countless other productions. Muppet Christmas Carol is one of my favorite movies ever, […]

UniDiction 2011: Week 9 – Eagles vs. Bears

This was cross-posted on Crossing Broad. follow me on twitter @dancfuller Well, they may have blasted apart my uniform-generated spread (25-15),  but a win (real life: 34-7) is a win. I’m 3-4, the Eagles are 3-4. Not too shabby after a dicey start for both of us. We had a surprisingly lively debate in the comments section […]

UniDiction 2011: Week 8 – Eagles vs. Cowboys

Follow me on twitter (@dancfuller) for uniform updates during Sunday’s games.

But can we also agree that the Redskins looked a whole […]
