  1. Too awesome.

    Extra text goes here.

  2. Bah! I had hoped for much better.

  3. In 2014, the Tampa Bay Rays will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their 1994 World Series championship.

  4. The uniforms themselves? They’re tacky and ridiculous and kitsch as fuck, and that’s kind of the point of an ironic 70s fauxback. To dissect the sartorial merits of the uniform would be like hiring an art critic to judge a black velvet painting of Elvis.

    But this whole introduction of an alternate universe where the Rays existed in 1977? It’s just fucking with my head too much. This is like that recent Simpsons episode where Homer joins a grunge band before Lisa and Bart were born that supposedly took place in the early 90s, and I was just going “No. NO. This did not happen. You were in your 4th [and best] season at the time period you’re retconning. WHY ARE YOU MINDFUCKING ME SO GLADLY.”

    • Mateus!
      I think the point is Tampa Bay is full of old people so they want to pretend there is nostalgia associated with their team. Also there’s probably a small window after a team does well (ie makes playoffs) to introduce these publicity stunts where it doesn’t yet smack of despiration.

  5. Joe Maddon looks awesome in those.

  6. He sure does.

    Extra fucking swears here for length.

  7. The belt ruins it. Needs an elastic waistband.
