So…this is happening again.

To be honest, I didn’t care for the look in 2001, the first year there had been an alternate jersey for the Giants as long as I could remember.  Everyone was doing black jerseys.  And to be fair, it made sense for the Giants.  After all, they were a team that actually had black in their colors, unlike the Mets, and the Braves, and half the other teams out there using black jerseys.

I still didn’t like it.

Generally, I don’t like alternate jerseys.  The orange jerseys bothered me for the longest time, although when they added the 70’s script I came to like it.  It was truly unique, not just alternate.  And, the Sunday grey alternates are a favorite of mine, if only because I grew up in the 1980’s.

But now, black.

And it still looks flat, and boring.

Now the 2001 alternate hat they wore with the black jerseys….that’s a different story.
