Miami Marlins Real New Uniforms Leaked To Riptide
Does Jeffrey Loria lie awake at night, in his Britto-decorated pajamas, trying to think of new ways to be disgusting?
Tomorrow night--11/11/11!-- the owner of the mediocre baseball collective soon-to-be-formerly known as the Florida Marlins will throw his crowning gala at the new stadium. To commemorate the team's rebranding as the Miami Marlins, there will be a VIP concert by former rapper Pitbull. Then players will walk the catwalk in their newly-unveiled Miami Marlins uniforms.
If a purported leak is correct, this is what those jerseys will look like. But we have a few better ideas-- as modeled here by new manager Ozzie Guillen. (And imagined by art director Pam Shavalier.)
After the catwalk show -- and here's the part where we retched-- "the doors will open to the public so they may begin purchasing the new team merchandise at 11:00 PM."
Yes, Loria is banking that a mob of cash-waving plebians will flock to Little Havana near midnight on Friday to be price-gouged for jerseys representing a skinflint baseball team that refuses to pay Dan Uggla.
So we're going to beat the team to the punch. Here's a few of the new models Guillen will be sporting down the runway on Friday:
"Say hello to my little payroll!"
Seriously. Dan Fucking Uggla. We're not asking for A-Rod here.
Y'know, for what they did to the taxpayers.
We don't have a point with this one. It's just for the ladies.
And this one's for... the German ladies?
