From the very beginning, sports teams have needed way to stand out, build pride and spread team spirit. Some have been blessed with timeless aesthetics, but many others remain in an endless search for something that doesn’t look like complete ass. 100 years in and mistakes have been made and traditions doubled-down on: Why is a team called the JAZZ in Utah? Why do the White Sox wear literal black sox? And what the hell is a Laker?
Come drink and laugh with us as we praise the good and roast the bad and test two teams—including working graphic designers and comedians who will let us know what’s what—with games and trivia about what we force our jocks to wear.
Mascots, logos, uniforms—we cover it all in a night that is going to inform, shock and ultimately dismay you.
