At least there is hope for the Wolves and the Wild. The Twins time has come and gone, and the Vikings... well, I hope they aren't called the "Vikings" when they go to LA.

They will be. Their color and naming scheme already matches with the ****ing Lakers.

You mean the Minneapolis Lakers? That name makes no sense for L.A.

What are your guys' thoughts on having "city" colors (like Pittsburgh, Los Angeles)?

It would be weird. You'd have to go navy and red for the Wild and Wolves.

Dislike. I enjoy our different uniforms.

I like the Wild's colors for the most part. I'd like them a whole lot better if the red was toned down moving forward.

Actually like the T-Pups colors as well if they'd avoid black. Green, Blue, and Silver/White is a good look in my opinion.

Twins colors are bland and tired. Really dislike their Navy uniforms and Gray aways. Big fan of their throw back Wheat uniforms but no idea if they still plan on using them

Vikings are obviously a hot mess. Especially with their current, hideous uniforms. Yuck.

Like on the original green sweaters? Yes, that would be perfect.

We need to do some mock ups of the other teams in the original Wild green colors.

Should have kept the pinstripes.

Disagree, I'm not a fan of teams having road pinstripe jerseys.

I really liked the pinstripes. They just can't seem to stick with a classic look though. They're up with the classic teams IMO, just quit mucking around with it.

Vikings are a mess. They need to go classic jerseys as well.

Wolves look like a bland corporate redesigned jersey. They need to go blue and green, blue and silver, blue and something other than black. The brighter blue is fine.

Yet another Twins lo...wait a sec, Twins win again?

TWINS WIN! TWINS WIN!

This is the first time in Gardy's career that the team has won in New York twice in a season.

And Jarick, I think the reason that they can't stick with a classic look is that their glory years were in the late 80s/early 90s, in a dome. Not exactly the spitting image of old-time baseball. Personally I love the gray aways, actually.

Yes, Nike, but the Oregon ones always seem to be by far the strangest.

NFL opens trenchcoat, flashes gun in Minnesota's direction

Yep. It begins. Legislature either gets something done or this is more than likely going to be their last season in the Twin Cities.
