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).
