Sixers Bringing Back Old Uniforms: The Bloggers Win!

Sixers Old Uniforms 80'sIt's been a while since I've covered the Sixers.  Obviously, when its football season, the 76ers kind of take the backseat.  Let's recap the season so far.  In a nutshell, they started the season off slow, Elton Brand got injured (he has now returned to practice), they went on a 7-game win streak before losing to Dallas, and they are now currently 2nd in the Atlantic Division and 7th in the East.

Well, the more important news is that I've gotten word that the 76ers are switching back to their old uniforms permanently starting next season.  If you recall, my website and Ricky's Sixers 4 Guidos were lobbying with the 76ers PR department to get the 76ers to bring back the old unis.  Their original response was that it was a complicated and sensitive matter, but it looks like they finally saw the genius in this idea and they said that the 1983 uniforms would be brought back permanently next season.

Here is the unofficial word:
Kate Price, Sixers’ Vice President of Business Operations, said yesterday to a group of season ticket holders in a fan forum that the franchise will be switching back to the old logo and the old 1982-83 uniforms (white/home, red/away) starting next season.

Damn, these are beautiful!  Thanks to everyone who signed the petition to make this happen.
