Risking the wrath of the Pantheon. Can you lovely people help me out with identifying these sports kits? I need numbers 5, 8 and 12. Also this badminton player. Thanks.

#5 - Detroit Tigers, MLB - I don't get the rest tho. I'll claim that I am first in on the easiest(?) of the three you ask about...

Yeah, the "easy" one (depends on perspective of course but I presume there would be more MLB fans passing through SpoFi than, say, cricket fans). The options are listed as: Football (US and soccer), Baseball, Cricket, Ice Hockey, Rugby and Speedway. #8 - shirt and shorts. Not Hockey, Cricket, Speedway, Baseball. That leaves football or rugby. Looking at the colours it is probably US football/soccer (just a guess). #12 - Just a shirt. Therefore, based on what is seen in the others, it is not football, baseball, ice hockey or rugby. Therefore that is either speedway (what is that? motor car racing?) or cricket. I'd guess cricket? That's it. I am no more help.

My best guesses: #8 the color scheme speaks to some olden design. It may be something of Central or South American origin, try a Mexican or Peruvian or Colombian pro team color. Maybe it's Brazilian: Santos? Vasco da Gama? #12 looks Australian to me, based on the yellow/gold and green. It may be Aussie rules or Rugby. May even be national soccer team. I sure would like to know if I even came close. As for the badminton player, I'm guessing an Indonesian female.

You were right about #12 wc2002. It was the Brumbies, who apparently are an Australian rugby team. Never got #8 and the deadline is gone now. It was an Indonesian badminton player too, Mia Austina I think was the name.

Damn! I rule in the world of sort-of, kinda-close knowledge!
