Stop beating around the bush and bring back the Pooh Bear jerseys you cowards! Okay, now that I got that out of my system I actually really, really like this “reverse retro” jersey as they’re referring to it.
It’s a color flip of their jerseys from the early 90s that Cam Neely and Ray Bourque wore back in their playing days.
Which were basically a throwback to their jerseys from the late 70s that Mike Milbury and the boys sported.
This is far from the first time the Bruins have opted to go with gold as their primary color. Look no further than the 2010 Winter Classic sweaters.
The Bruins also wore gold in the early 60s
But it will be hard to ever really top the Pooh Bear jerseys of the late 90s. An absolute icon that the Jacobs family is afraid to bring back for some reason.
Now it remains to be seen what the team will go with for pants and socks, but they could go all out with gold on gold on gold. The Bruins coming out of the locker room rocking next season:
I already own the 2010 Winter Classic jersey so I am undecided if I’ll add another gold jersey to my collection (until I drunkenly charge it to The 300s company card), but these new alternates are so choice. Well done.
