Yesterday afternoon Sean Avery leaked a picture of himself in the new New York Rangers third jersey on his own website. Unfortunately, for obvious reasons, he took down the post but the picture is already around the internet. The damage has been done.
You see us crying? Hell no.
It looks like these will be to celebrate the Rangers 85th Anniversary this season. If you notice the patch on the upper right shoulder, it is probably this logo right here:
No word, yet from the Rangers organization as to whether or not this is truly official or what dates they’ll use these jerseys. Personally, I liked the Statue of Liberty jerseys, but clearly those are not coming out of the closet anytime soon.
Obviously, this jersey isn’t a big stretch from the original, but hey, that’s the Rangers and tradition.
It’s just nice to see we have a third jersey again. Say it with me now, VARIETY.
