Sweet. For the Thanksgiving Day game at Detroit (look for me on the sidelines!), the Packers will bust out the 1967 throwbacks (

The Packers give you a peek at Favre's jersey here, but it's missing the TV numbers. A better look at the '67 jerseys is available here (Football Uniforms Past and Present). The socks are beyond awesome, people. Lombardi-era rules.

For their part, the Lions will break out their 1934 club's gear. ( Sideline coaches and even the ball ( again) will be in their old-school best for the game.

And oh yeah, Miami's white 1973 unis (but which socks, FUPP?) at Dallas sporting an adaptation of their 1960-66/1994 gear...kind of. ( again)

Dig the old-school goodness.

(EDIT: Those balls actually did have "THE DUKE" printed on one side, much like the old footballs used to. I saw it up close when I caught a bounce pass from Joey Harrington in the 3rd quarter...but Sideline Ball Guy was right there to take it back. Dammit!)

Gotta love the throwbacks. Of course, I get the ugly feeling one day the NFL will really feel like sowing its oats and go with the turn ahead the clock day promotion that was a disaster for baseball...

Quezzy: You know not what you ask. (shudder) Think of a graphic for SportsCenter (you know, team logo) sloppily cut and pasted onto a jersey.

Then again, we all know baseball's capable of coming up with perfectly bad jerseys on their own (a-HEM, Padres camo jerseys...). I'm looking forward to these games... except I won't be able to see them, for I will be in a house that isn't really big on football. >_<

After those dreadful orange jerseys the Fish were wearing on Sunday night, just about anything is a step up.

For those who believe in the Curse of the Blue Jersey, it was easy money betting against Dallas. I know they've been forced to wear the blue on the road at times, but I can't remember the last time they actually wore them at home before today.

I'm 100% positive they've worn those in their past two Thanksgiving games prior to this one. So much for being the league's number one defense.

Not to threadjack, but the Padres camo jerseys are AWESOME. The town loves them.

It helps that they wear them for the Military Opening day.

It probably wouldn't work in a different city, but that's why they are so great.

It's almost over, down to the Padres' Camo uniform vs. (I believe) the Nashville Predators alternate uniform. You can look at a lot of ugly uniforms, including that gawdawful orange Dolphins thing. Including that in this poll was somewhat unfair, seeing as how they hadn't used it until two weeks ago against the Skins.

I thought it was incredibly lame that the Houston Astros' representative uniform was the current one, which is actually somewhat slick looking, IMO, compared the the FUGLYASS 1980s uniform with the multicolored stripes at the bottom which is the undisputed ugliest uniform ever.
