Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players, media personnel, and broadcast botches. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more!

As hockey fans, one of the coolest parts of the game is the sweater. Hockey jerseys are just so cool. The only cooler piece of equipment is the goalie mask, but I digress…

The subject of this week’s hockey hilarity is the massive misstep made by a franchise with a pretty rad logo. The Buffalo Sabres have a dope color scheme and a killer logo… But then they go and do something like this:

I think everyone can agree that either mostly yellow, or mostly blue would have been fine, but what’s up with that cape jawn in the back? Why the extra white piping? Have we learned nothing from oh I don’t know EVERY TEAM IN THE NHL? Simple, minimalist, and retro are en vogue, not cluttered, weird crap that looks like it’s from the early 2000s. And of course, of course, it would be the infamous pot-stirrer Steve Ott who pulls the lid off this hot mess of a jersey.

Anyways, I’ll see you guys next week once I stop laughing. Catch you on the flip side!
