The Admirals Pt 1

The Admirals was a mens hockey team I played for a few years back.  We won our division the first year I played in 00-01.  Ever since I joined the team I have loved the logo and jersey.  They are the exact ones used by the Milwaukee Admirals (of the then IHL) from 1982-97 (I will bring up the Admirals current state of horror in a future post).  Anyway, I can't get enough of everything from that era of Admirals.  I've even named my business 'Admiral Finishing Ltd'.  Yikes!

Favourite Jerseys Pt 1

Alrighty....   my first post on my first blog.  I've decided to make some categories to make things a little easier for me.  This one is obviously going to be about jerseys.  I came across this gem as I was trying to find something for a new team I'll be playing on.  I've kinda liked the colour green lately, as most teams are either using either black, blue or red.  Not a lot of green anymore.  I don't really like the darks, but this shade from the Greensboro Generals jersey is perfect.  The bonus number on the front is great and I like the fact the majority of the sweater is one colour.  The lace up fronts don't hurt either.  For those curious, The Generals originally played in the Eastern Hockey League, and later in the Southern Hockey League.  I regret I haven't researched quite enough, but this jersey is from sometime between 1959 and 1977.
