Another day, another installment of the Uni Watch Power Rankings, and we continue our weeklong countdown of every uniform set in the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL. (If you're joining us for the first time today, you can see all the ground rules and parameters spelled out here.)
This is Day 3 -- call it the middle of the pack, call it humpday, call it what you will. By any name, it presents a challenge: How do you assess and describe a bunch of designs that are neither wonderful nor awful? "Nothing to complain about here, but nothing to get excited about either." "Not bad for what it is, but what it is ain't great." Then what? Seriously, people, writing about mediocrity is tougher than it looks.
Of course, not everyone has the same concept of what qualifies as mediocre. So take a look at this section of the chart (remember, you can click on a team's name to see its current uni set) and keep giving us your feedback in the comments and on Twitter, using the hashtag #UniRank.
(Special thanks to Michael Barreras, Jared Hartung, Mark Meeks and Zack Tanner for their photo research assistance.)
