24/7 Finale's Sweater Treat

Hope everyone caught the finale of 24/7 on HBO last night. In case you missed it, though, check out the video above for the opening sequence. Beautifully shot and edited, it shows the process of turning blank Winter Classic jerseys into what would identify every man on the ice.

If only Reebok applied this much care to their design.

That's an awesome video. If only I could show up to that place and have them give me a Red Wings and a Leafs jersey for free. I'll keep dreaming. :p

Are the Winter Classic patches sewn on or glued? They look glued in the video and most close-up pictures I've seen

Ron McLean (host of Hockey Night in Canada) is using the fact the teams wore these jerseys to try and get the NHL to consider ditching the mandatory whites. On Coaches Corner with Don Cherry this past weekend he pointed out how great red vs blue looked, saying that the colours really 'popped', and that with HD television broadcasts now, the clarity is so precise that we definitely no longer need white jerseys to tell the teams apart on TV. He went on to challenge that with the white ice as the background it's time the teams were all in colour, having a lighter and a darker jersey.
