    Wow, imagine putting that on without being pro. Would you? I'll bet they
    did. To spice up the topic, how much salary would you need to put on that stank? I am thinking $1000
    surcharge per day, with image rights retained by
    die.

    Maybe its a ploy to get the compitition laughing so hard that they are unable to compete.

    Some will argue (marketing types, methinks) that they accomplished their goal of drawing attention
    to themselves and their advertisers.

    Personally, it reminds me of the German team, Histor-Sigma. Not exactly the same shade of green,
    Histor's was a bit more of a sickly olive color.

    Are you sure that was Histor-Sigma? I can see the kit, I just can't remember the name. Wasn't Brian
    Holm on that team? I am still searching the gray matter...

    I'm pretty sure about the Histor part. I think Zabel turned pro with them, too.

    Tulip Computers? Zabel in his first year (1992) rode for Fr=F6ndenberg, after that Telekom.

    Holm rode for them, he was known as Brian Sorenson back then. Roche rode for them for a year,
    Etienne de Wilde took a couple of Tour stage wins with Histor. I'm not sure about the German part, I
    thought they were Belgian. Don't know what Histor was, but Sigma made paint.

    your jerseys posted are nothing like the "grandmas leftover cooking dress" that these boys in Denver
    were wearing. look at those sleeves. they look like they are ruffled they are so fluffy..... im
    sorry, but no matter how bad I sucked or how bad you wanted to sell your shit. I wouldn't put that
    crap on.....they must be some bad ass fighting mofo's, cause anytime you were out training alone
    with that shit on you would get in a fight...guaranteed.....

  12. Ugly jersey, bad move too: D'ya think the Histor rider (Luc R.) has put his arms down yet?

    More fugly kit: Tonton Tapis kit, ugly, bad team to boot. Boston Road Club Yellow 'n' Purple, circa
    1985, too. And anything from Fat City or Broadway Kitchen.

    Weirdest jersey I've ever seen. It was supposed to be a picture of a carpet installer holding a roll
    of carpet, but it looked like Saddam Hussein holding a racket launcher. That jersey on Stephen
    Roche's back was like Kryptonite to Clark Kent. Look what happened when he exchanged it for a
    Carrerra jersey.

    Actually, looks more like a Sikh than Hussein that's holding the Stinger missile, but pretty fine
    description. Hours of entertainment with that web site.

    Ben still wondering if whoever picked the Subaru Montgomery colors was actually colorblind
