The Alternate Jerseys

For those of you who didn't make the game, here's an iPhone photo of the Aeros alt jerseys that they wore today. The only thing, in my opinion, that ruined these jerseys was that stupid Aeros logo. I know I'm in the minority, but I just don't like the team's logo. But the colors looked great.

I agree about the logo, way too 90s. Somehow always reminds me to this one:

At least they got rid of that, I would prefer just Aeros written on the Jersey. Didn't they try that variation last season or was that Wild?

Second attempt to see Chris Chelios in Houston, still no luck. I think he might be allergic to the place?

I don't like the Aeros logo either, but I think if they'd separate the wordmark from the puck/plane part of it, it would look a lot better. It's too busy.

So I'm a little confused, did they wear these alternates or a different alternate last night? I'm seeing pictures of a white jersey that isn't like their standard white from last night?

Chris:

I'm not sure of what you're looking at. I've got posted a photo of Justin Falk in a red sweater. I don't know where the white sweater is.

I also went to yesterday's game hoping to see Chris Chellios. Sigh.

Ms. Conduct said...

They had alternate whites on Saturday night, Chris. Maybe you're seeing that somewhere?

To Chelios Followers:

Well-informed sources indicate that his special contract gives him the sole option to sit out the third game (3on 3's) and Sunday afternoon games.

However, either of the 3/31 (Wed) or 4/2 (Fri) games at Toyota Center will likely be Chelios sightings.

Go Aeros!

Heather nailed it, I saw photos from Saturday that I thought were Sunday... it all makes sense now. Saw some more photos and wow, agreed, the Aeros logo just looks weird with that color combo.

Thanks, Anon! I figured the old geezer could wimp out on 3rd in 3s ;).

PLEASE NO MORE RED AND GREEN JERSEYS.

This is all I could think of the entire game.

Also the Aeros B-17 bomber and Art Deco lettering logo is awesome.
