In a future age

Once upon a time, Sportscenter was actually funny and insightful (it still is, sometimes, but most of the anchors these days are lame):

Yes, that actually happened. Rich Eisen was one of the better anchors on Sportscenter, and baseball actually tried wearing those things. UniWatch (my favorite ESPN column/ blog) has an entire column dedicated to them (he did an extensive blog entry as well. Quite possibly the worst designed things ever. I can't find the Tigers or White Sox versions of the uniforms online but if they look anything like this then we're in for a treat.

holy fucking shit. So some teams have gay looking cartoons and the M's are late 90's gangsta rappers. No wonder no one talks about this anymore, cause it is probably the most embarrassing thing to come out of baseball ever. Yes, even including steroids, pete rose's betting and the 2003 Detroit Tigers.

i think, too, that the future simply means HUGE LOGOS.

Reading that ESPN column made it a little more understandable. I think that first promotion was a goofy fun little thing. I have no idea why they changed the uniforms for both teams the next year.
