Ha! I'd forgotten about that. Still, they looked better than the San Diego Padres in those brown and yellow numbers they wore once.

Well, I'll never be that sexy. Those heights (of sexiness and the shorts) are unreachable.

As I recall, the players hated the shorts. Fans weren't thrilled either. Then again, the Pirates looked like bananas at about the same time.

There must have been many many incidents of grass burn and sand-burn that year. And probably also eye injuries sustained when the gigantic lapels flipped up.

That said, I would pay big monies for one of those jersies on ebay.

That just doesn't look good. No wonder it was for one season!
