Two Brief Questions For Guys Who Obsess About Uniforms

(Inspired by the Phillies' broadcast crew today, who spent most of the eighth and ninth innings of a win over the Red Sox talking about jerseys.)

I don't know about the uniform of anyone else's childhood, but I can say with all objectivity -- traditional gender roles be damned -- that the powder blue away unis that the Phillies wore in the late 70s and early 80s are the most gorgeous sports uniforms in the history of sports.
