When we lamented the cookie-cutter disappointments of this season’s Christmas hockey sweaters, we had but one request: If you’re going to ugly, make sure it’s uuuugggggly.
So kudos to the Toledo Walleye for this monstrosity, which eschews the red-and-green of other sweaters for what looks like the bastard child of Hanukkah and Christmas:
From the ECHL team, a feeder to both the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings:
Don't put your festive holiday sweaters away right after Christmas - you'll want to wear them one more time in 2013 for Ugly Sweater Night, presented by Goodwill: Saturday, December 28. The Walleye team will be getting in on the action, wearing the ugliest holiday-themed uniforms you've ever seen!
The Walleye game-worn 'Ugly Sweater' jerseys will be available for purchase after the game via a live auciton. Proceeds will benefit the Adaptive Sports Program of Ohio. The Adaptive Sports Program of Ohio is a 501(c)3 organization established to promote the health and wellness of individuals with physical disabilities by providing competitive and recreational adaptive sport opportunities throughout the State of Ohio. They offer eight sports, including Sled Hockey. The local team is named the Toledo Walleye Sled Hockey team and will be featured in the National Anthem and the Intermission Shootout Contest.
It’s just so gloriously bad. Like if your colorblind grandma got into the Peppermint Schnapps before knitting it.
