Orange you glad that you visited the blog today? Puns aside, the Oklahoma City Barons unveiled the newest “third” jersey that will be worn during the 2014-2015 season. During the 2013-2014 campaign one of the most popular jerseys quickly became the limited edition Special Olympics Barons Buddies sweater that would eventually be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Details of that bid are found here.
This most likely fazes out the road copper and navy (one that I really like), and places the emphasis more on the orange and blue scheme. This feels like the jersey the team wanted all along. One side note here, I prefer the oil drop logo over the main Barons logo/crest that is featured on this new third. Just a preference.
This jersey is oddly familiar, especially if you are a gray-bearded Oilers fan (or simply a die hard fan). The WHA Oilers sported a primarily orange sweater in days gone by, and there has been much the twitter outcry to have something similar return. Thus the sale of this particular Barons jersey will likely be substantial (my pocketbook just cringed while nestled on my buttocks).
So…what do you think? Yes, no, ABSOLUTELY YES?
