What Tie Domi will be wearing when he gets his weekly mani/pedi.

With the percentage of female hockey fans steadily increasing, starting in September Reebok will be introducing Pink versions of every National Hockey League team jersey (link. paid subscription req'd). So, yes, we'll have Pink Blue Jackets. Pink Sharks. And Pink Panthers. Let's fast forward to the not-so-distant future: The "Pinkies" have become official team third or fourth jerseys, complete with alternate pink helmets. I believe stats will show that fighting in games where one of the teams is wearing its Pink uniforms will be near nonexistent. It would be like punching your Mom.

Tie fucking Domi. I just looked at a picture of his jersey the wrong way and he punched me.

Ug., This trend has been around awhile in Boston. In fact, there's quite a backlash against the so-called "pink hats." Shallow, anorexic women who jumped on the Sox bandwagon after they won the Series, and who do nothing at Fenway except waste prized seats and talk on their cell phones for nine innings.

Death to the Pink Hats! (And the Pink Jerseys.)

Tie Domi used to fucking rule in Sega Hockey. He would kick ass in all the fights.

Not much use for him otherwise, but when you needed to take out the other teams Roenick, Gretzky, Jagr, et al, he was your man.

As a woman with taste, I am offended by the whole "Let's make sports jerseys/caps, etc. in PINK cuz it's like, GIRLY and GIRLS wear PINK and if they want to be SOFT AND FEMININE and STILL LIKE SPORTS we're going to have to make their sporty wear in PINK or else people might think they're NOT girly! And girls will buy it! Because they like pink! Which is the same color as a vagina! See? Pink is for GIRLS!!"

It's insulting, and the stupid women that buy into this shameless attempt to make money off their stupidity deserve to have full cups of beer thrown at the back of their heads at the stadiums, ruining their $60 blow-outs.

You know, if you add "pink" to all the NHL team names besides St. Louis, you end up with the drink menu at Lot 61.

Haven't they been doing the "Hey, the gals like pink! Let's make a version of everything in pink, because the broads would never just wear the real ones. It just wouldn't be lady-like!" thing for a while now? I know the Eagles have had pink hats and jerseys and stuff for a while now.

yes frank. but the NHL, pound-for-pound, the toughest major sport, was the last holdout. this a league-wide move, every single team jersey. now there's no hope.

As a female hockey fan, I'd just like to say: I think I'm gonna be ill.

My grandmother had season tickets to the Rangers just to see the fights! and this was 40 years ago.

Well, at least as far as the Rangers and Islanders go (Jagr and Yashin most especially) we will at least know who the female fans are from the actual players.

As a season ticket holder for the New York Rangers I say it's high time the women started wearing pink sweaters. That way we'll be able to tell who the women are!

Yeah. I'll wear a pink jersey when Sidney Crosby does.

Pardon my French, but fuck that. How about we quit trying to make female fans different from male fans? About the only thing I'd welcome that for is beer prices. If you want to knock 50% off arena beer prices because I have tits, I'd welcome it, but until then, you can use your fugly pink jerseys to wipe your asses with.
