Fun challenge out of the Red Wings' blogosphere today, as sites Etched In Cold and The Production Line are pairing up to give fans the chance to create the most hideous third jersey ever and to give it a Red Wings' theme. Full details are at both sites, but here are some details:
- There WILL be prizes. Etched In Cold has the details.
- Submissions need to be in by February 10th. They can be sent to either EtchedInCold@Gmail.com or contact@theproductionline.US
- Just make it a picture. Use Photoshop/Gimp/MS Paint/Whatever. They're not listing any official rules about picture size limits or file formats, but use common sense. Nobody wants a 2538X15000 bitmap.
- Naturally, it has to be a Wings jersey, but that doesn't mean it has to have the Winged Wheel on it. Go nuts.
So there you have it. Make the ugliest, most abominable jersey you can think of and see if you can make it any worse than any of the current third jerseys uglying up Etched In Cold's main page. I promise you that if you can make it simultaneously as ugly as the Ducks' thirds and as cliche as the Jackets' thirds, you should win a prize.
