The Brewers New Alternate Uniforms Featuring The Barrelman Are Awesome And By That I Mean They’re Terrible
Source - After two months of sfiting through submissions, tallying votes and weighing the opinions of an esteemed panel of judges, the Milwaukee Brewers announced the winner of their “Design a YOUniform” contest on Sunday morning. Naturally, the fans and judges ended up going in a different direction than I was leaning when they revealed the three finalists. They decided it was Richfield, Minn. resident Ben Peters who impressed them the most, and after seeing his design come to life at the reveal it’s difficult to argue with their pick.
The cream-colored button-up jersey and navy blue cap look terrific. As does the fancy patch with the barrelman logo that will go on the left sleeve. That’s the detail Peters seems to be most proud of. “I’ve always loved vintage designs and the Barrelman logo was always a neat look” said Peters. “I wish I knew the name of the person who originally designed the Barrelman logo because I would like to thank him for inspiring me.”
The Barrel Man logo is so dumb and ridiculous I can’t believe that people would even consider that an option to put on an MLB uniform, never mind actually choose it as an alternate in 2013. The dude looks like he has a fucking cock on his face for crying out loud. His proportions are absurd. He’s got human feet, Oprah’s thighs, a goddamn wooden barrel torso and a smirking square face with a dick nose. It’s absolutely preposterous that a professional ballplayer would wear this. Just draw up a picture of some dudes and fat chicks eating deli meat and boozing at a dive bar, slap “Milwaukee” over it and call it a day.
Just to be sure let’s get a ranking going:
Vote 1 for Barrel Man is cool and edgy and hip and 10 for Who the fuck would want a wooden man sporting an erection on his face as their logo
