Norcal Jersey.

Just curious anyone interested in something like this?

I actually designed a jersey for this little crew we had here on bf, it's on my old hardrive so I can't show it to you, but what do you think of the idea? I'm definitely capable of designing one.

I'm thinking we gotta do cal colors, navy and gold baybuh.



Any Ideas? suggestions?

That's a nice looking jersey. The only concern I would have is that people might misinterpret it as a Cal / UC Berkeley cycling team jersey.

Well I just used that jersey as a reference, navy and gold. We'd have a completely different setup than the cal jersey.

I'm thinking we should use a map of california as the symbol, and put a * star right by the bay.

Oh come on, the star hasn't resided in the Bay Area since 1855.

I think it should say "Northern California" above a drawing of the top half of a bear.

Better yet over the top of a mug of beer.

Wow a bear, that's original.

I'll download a template for a jersey and come up with a couple ideas, and let people tell me what to change.

Not a bear! Half of a bear. The top half!

I could go for the beer idea, too.

It can be up to the viewer to decide, if you wish. As long as it's in a mug, they look the same.

Oh, can we steal the Anderson Valley "Beer" mascot? Bear with deer antlers on his head.

Oh, and for the star by the bay, you do mean Humboldt Bay, right? Up in Northern California.

Doubt it they have the ugly blue and white now. Much prefer their older version.
Anyway I think thats a great idea.
