The Buccaneers new uniforms look good. They had their new QB help unveil the sets.

The thing I like best is that they made the size of the flag on the helmet just a bit smaller.

It's not as small as the original helmet flag logo that they introduced in the late 90's, but it's smaller than what they've had the last few years, which always looked oversized and reminded me of the funky fireworks shops up and down old Rt. 17 and 301 in Georgia and South Carolina back in the days before I-95 was completed.

It turns out that a fair percentage of Bucs fans were pushing for the team to go back to the old original creamsicle uniforms, but there was some disagreement about whether to bring back the Bucco Bruce logo.

Loved those original unis. I wish the Pats would go back to their older unis as well.

A couple of the guys over at uni-watch took the time to redo each team's helmet. Some are terrible, most are meh, but the ones for the Panthers and Bengals are significant improvements. The Dallas helmet is a slight improvement, but only because I'm not usually a fan of silver helmets. The new Chargers design is OK as well.

No idea what compelled me to read this story, but...damn. I missed this one completely back in '10. I remember Christy Martin when she was relevant, but I had no idea this was what happened to her.
