    The Mudlarks continue their bizarre habit of wearing uniforms for practice.

    And then, against all odds, a giraffe came into the locker room.

    .
    Is that unusual for basketball teams? Football teams wear some kind of uniform for practice, don’t they? At least they do on Friday Night Lights.

    Looks like some of the team is wearing girl’s nylon mesh jerseys. Most teams at least wear practice or old jerseys I believe.

    I’m glad he got out of the locker room before coming up with that “Here’s your giraffe” retort. Otherwise, Jerry Sandusky might have come around doing some big game hunting.

    P3- Big Bob Stuff is #44 in games, #45 in practice uni. Reversable practice jerseys have been the norm for decades. Who cares about peacocks and giraffes? Let me be first to wish all Thor Pa fans Happy New Year since Gil is busy shinig up his coffee mug.

    Gil is rumored to be Ralph Wilson’s first choice to replace Chan Gailey. Milford’s lack of postseason appearances appeals to old Ralph.

    The mesh are called pennies (sp?), the same side wears them over their shirt so you can tell who’s on what team. Of course if they are going to wear game jerseys anyway, may as well just use their home and away jerseys.

    @susanwobb, We generally wore T-shirts of some kind, and for scrimmages one team would take their shirts off, so it was “shirts vs. skins.” It was an all-boys school; maybe they don’t do that at co-ed schools.

    I see a marketing campaign built around “Peacock Power” and the “Peacock Strut” dance through the gym aisles.

    Some teams have practice jerseys or reversible shirts, but I’ve never seen full practice uniforms including shorts. Mop – I believe it’s spelled pinnies.

    Now we can count on seeing the same often recycled crowd shots as they cheer on the new flying exchange student.
