Page 2's Best Uniform Bracket

Page 2 staff

At Page 2, we believe that brackets aren't just for the month of March.

Victoria and Henrí
Victoria and Henrí are Page 2's version of Joan and Melissa Rivers.

We did a bracket to find the Most Overrated Person Alive (c'mon down, Ja Rule). And our annual Wacky Bracket is a staple of spring (see Jennie Finch defend her title in March 2004).

And you know that Page 2 is about style, too. Our Makin' It Better feature rates the best and worst in the world of sports fashion, and our Hottest Athlete competition ranks as one of the nation's top beauty/talent contests.

Anyway, it's on to the Sweet Sixteen in our latest bracket -- determining the best uniform in sports. And we have some tasty matchups here that parallel real-life rivalires on the field, court or ice. How 'bout the Cubs (narrow victors over the Yankees in Round 2) vs. the Cardinals? Or Duke vs. North Carolina? And we're down to the final two in the NHL, with a showdown that pits the Red Wings against the Bruins. There are only 16 uniforms left, so click on each third-round matchup, check out the reviews from Henrí and Victoria and start voting. We'll move on to the Elite Eight on Friday.
