10 Hideous Sports Uniforms

Sports uniforms, like some players, can be iconic. Just think Detroit Red Wings or Boston Red Sox. However, a sports uniform can also make a fan do a double take and say “WTF!” For every Montreal Canadiens classic, there is a Philadelphia Flyers abomination. In the 1980s, the Broadstreet Bullies went with full length pants (Cooperalls). Yep, pants! Truly fugly. The St. Louis Cardinals have a jersey that is fashion forward in any era. The Houston Astros jersey from the 1970s, well, it was a fashion crime. A rainbow of crap, with a star plunked in the middle. The team should have kept the old Colt .45s name and jersey. The Boston Celtics green away uniforms are pure Beantown, incorporating the rich Irish history of the city with the team. But, along came the New York Knicks this decade, with an orange uniform so repugnant, it made Andrea Bargnani actually look good on the floor.

#10 – U.S. Ryder Cup Team 1999

Golf is renowned for goofy day-glo outfits that typify the flakes that wear them. Hello, John Daly. The United States Ryder Cup team, circa 1999, decided it was a good idea to make a whole team look ridiculous. Some marketing type at the PGA Tour must have thought, gee, wouldn’t it be a great idea to put old photographs of former teams on a burgundy golf shirt? The result, comical. Now, the U.S. did come back to win in dramatic fashion — and a bit of controversy — but only because the Euros were faked out by the giggle-inducing garb. Heck, Euros are also famous for logo-ridden, badly coloured soccer and hockey jerseys, but even they had to gasp when the Americans hit the practice tee on the first day.
