The NHL Rangers unveiled their third jersey which features a darker shade than the club's usual royal blue and features a likeness of the Statue of Liberty above the letters NYR. The Rangers will wear the jersey for the first time tonight against the Islanders (NEWSDAY, 1/11). Columnist Joe Lapointe, on the Rangers' new jersey: "Perhaps the Rangers should be careful with this jersey business. In hockey, it's a fine line between fashion and passion" (N.Y. TIMES, 1/12)....In Indianapolis, former Mariners Owner Jeff Smulyan, on talks of the Colts leaving Indianapolis: "The city still has a binding, 18-year lease, so even if the team goes somewhere else, that city would be liable for damages. And no city can afford that ... no city can live with contingent liabilities" (INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS, 1/11).
