SHARK WEEK: CSNBAYAREA.com's Kevin Kurz reported the Sharks yesterday on their website "unveiled new home and road sweaters in time" for the '13-14 season. The result is a "much lighter and cleaner look to the home teals and road whites." There was an "emphasis on decreasing the weight of the sweaters, so the striping on the bottom and the shoulder caps were removed, and there is now neck line lacing." There is "much less orange in the new sweaters, as well, as that has been removed as an accent from the players’ numbers." The design is "similar to the black third jerseys, which remain unchanged" (CSNBAYAREA.com, 8/20).
FEED THEM TO THE LIONS: In Vancouver, Lowell Ullrich noted the CFL BC Lions debuted their "futuristic black uniforms" last weekend, and the team sold "everything available." The team had to go "into back orders online." The franchise "hasn’t decided whether to wear them again this season but is considering the idea, which was not the plan before they were unveiled to an enthusiastic response" (Vancouver PROVINCE, 8/20).
