I received an official e-mail from the Hurricanes today, confirming what had already been confirmed a day earlier: the Hurricanes will unveil their alternate sweaters in a press conference on Wednesday September the 10th. The e-mail included this "tease" of a photo:
Is this really a sneak peak? I don't think so.
One thing I am pretty sure of is that this is some modified version of what will be the shoulder patch. After examining the photo at some length, including the stitching, it seems like there's no way that this is the chest crest.
It also seems pretty clear that the colors have been altered. This isn't the real thing. There's a part of me that thinks that this charcoal gray look would be really awesome, but I just don't think that it's really it. As much as everyone else in the world says it's overused, the sweater will almost certainly be black, and the "sighless eye" logo will maintain its red and black scheme.
I've pretty much decided that I'm signed up for a new third sweater, and I only need to decide whose name and number I'll wear. Sorry, but I just don't like blank sweaters.
Again, we'll know exactly what it looks like at 12:30 on Wednesday. I won't be attending, so I'd appreciate a photo text message from anyone who does attend.
