The Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League (NHL) recently unveiled their new third jerseys. Aaaaand… they suck:
What’s ironic is that the Panthers unveiled these sweaters in a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins (the team in which the Panthers stole the concept for their new unis):
Florida (much like Tampa Bay [BOLTS], Ottawa [SENS], Colorado [Rangers-esqe wordmark], Nashville [ANOTHER blue alt] and Atlanta [the maroon monstrosity]) FAILED epically at a chance to really please their fans.
So where did they go wrong? Well, for starters they should have gone RED. Even though the “glory days” are far behind them, it would have been a nice nod to the loyal fans of this terrible franchise to pay tribute to the “Beezer” and the Panthers club of the mid-90’s that advanced to (before losing to Colorado) the Stanley Cup Finals:
Here’s a look at what they’re wearing down in South Florida currently:
And here’s what they should have done:
OR (and I like this even better):
Oh well, this IS the NHL afterall. And if we’ve learned anything from third jerseys (besides the fact that black alts are PLAYED OUT) – it’s that the Southeastern Conference (and Nashville) continually struggle with introducing aesthetically-acceptable thirds.
At least Calgary got it right:
From Rotten Tomatoes: 24% Rotten (Average Rating: 4.3/10)
Consensus: Unnecessarily violent and unflinchingly absurd, Law Abiding Citizen is plagued by subpar acting and a story that defies reason.
That quote sums up my feelings exactly. Here are some more choice words on this (wretched) film:
“Law Abiding Citizen is such a lazy action-drama underachiever, it seems unfair to target stars Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler for bringing their C game.”
“Law Abiding Citizen could be the movie of the year, but only if you’re a big fan of stupid.”
There’s no need for a long, detailed analysis of this program. The only commentary I have is that:
a.) I feel bad for Ed O’neill. He is awesome. Married …with Children is one of my favorite shows of all-time. But damn, this show isn’t doing him any favors.
and more importantly
b.) Stop trying to rip-off Arrested Development. It’s insulting. I mean, this show might be funny to people who never watched AD, but for those of us who did, this show is a joke. And not a good one.
