The normal jersey design for the Idaho Steelheads is rather nice.

This is not their normal design.

AAAAIGH! MY EYES!

OMFG..what was the designer using when he made it.
And **OMFG** what was the team thinking when they approved it?

It's a military appreciation design, no worse than Padres or Tucson Sidewinders honorary jerseys.

Yeah, but in BLUE AND WHITE? The Sidewinders jersey you linked to looks like a reasonable approximation of military camo. The only place you could hide wearing the Steelheads atrocity would be in a 60's go-go bar, and then only if everyone else was stoned out of their head and being distracted by bright shiny objects.

Their choice of colors makes the Steelheads jersey look like a demented jigsaw puzzle, not anything that any self-respecting soldier would ever want to wear.

I hardly think that it comes close to topping some of the hideous NHL third jerseys out there.

I half-expected to see the name "Dudley" on the back. It does remind me of the time a bunch of us went to see a riveting Tacoma Sabercats-Idaho Steelheads matchup at the Tacoma Dome. What crap hockey. The only saving grace came after the fact that we realized the row in front of us was full of youngsters. We were complaining loudly how shitty the hockey was (the rink looked like a Slurpee) and felt all these little eyes on us, so we decided to root vociferously for Idaho. It was AWESOME. I mean, who the fuck would be such an Idaho Steelheads fan that they would go see them on the road in Tacoma? We had a blast, with various "I!-D!-A!-H!-O!" and "HEADS! HEADS! HEADS! HEADS!" chants. We were genuinely annoying, but in a good way, and BOY did we hear it when Tacoma scored the winnning goal with about two minutes left. Good times.

That would be a great baseball jersey, if you could get away with it. I dare a batter to try to pick up the ball looking at a picture that's wearing THAT!... The batter will become crossed eyed as the ball is halfway to the plate

Aw, c'mon. I liked the Big Yellow Clown Suits, in a perverse sort of way.

Y'know, I could probably turn this into an Ugly eBay Hockey Jersey of the Week feature, if I was so inclined, but I won't.
