Today, Ted Starkey, Washington Capitals author, and staffer for the Washington Post, dropped a bomb in the form of a Twit Pic. Ladies and Gentleman, meet the most vile thing to meet the ice.
I present to you the New York Islanders 3rd Alternate Jersey
No that is not a FUBU shirt jersey from 2001, nor is it an Abercrombie & Fitch Hoodie from 2005. That gem is the New York Islanders 3rd Alternate jersey. It is terrible. Worse that the Thundercats of the Florida Panthers, this takes the place of the worst jersey in the NHL. I don't know if its the fact that it looks like a wannabe LA Kings jersey, or the fact that the way "Islanders" is sprawled across the chest it could have possibly made at the Jersey Shore T shirt store but the jersey is terrible. I blame Snooki. I would much rather see a traditional logo, more orange, and less gray. Quite frankly NYI, lets get rid of the gray all together. I think the practice jerseys would make a better 3rd Alternate, even though they look very similar to something the Edmonton Oilers would wear...I say go for it!
