With the advent of the Internet, it is difficult to keep things a secret, especially in sports. Whether it be a player signing or trade, or a new jersey, sooner-or-later, the cat will be out of the bag.
The Rangers know this first-hand, when a photo of Sean Avery wearing last season’s heritage third-jersey leaked onto the Internet months before the jersey was unveiled. Well, it appears to have happened again, this time around with the Rangers’ potential Winter Classic jersey being leaked.
Personally, I like it more than the heritage jersey. It has the old-school feel these jersey’s usually possess, without looking out-dated. Pretty interesting Messier’s name was put on the back of this one, and not a current player.
What does everyone think of the jersey? Tell me in the comments.
