Apparently, after many years of wearing a block W, there was talk of putting the official team name on the jersey.

Tomas Vokoun and Alexander Semin are gone from Brand Thunder’s Washington Capitals browser theme, but the new one could use a tweak.

The two great blue and white football programs, Penn State and Yale, have changed their uniforms and the results are mixed.
I’ve said several times that the Washington Bullets brand was pretty dead when Abe Pollin decided to change the name of DC’s basketball team to Wizards.
