Avs' Unipron Trashed by ESPN

37

The Unipron was ranked as one of the WORST in professional sports by ESPN! LOL Not really a secret around here though! Here is the quote from ESPN who ranked the Avs at #118: "Once upon a time, this was a passable-looking team. Not great, but passable. Now, though, it's a jumble of ill-fitting elements -- the apron-string jersey stripes, the pointless side panels, the laughable number font, the alternate jersey that's just a Rangers rip-off. If a team could get a game misconduct for its uniform, the Avs would certainly deserve one."
