    That's because he is Jen Voight. Nothing else need be said.

    I don't know why nobody came up with that idea sooner.
    LOL...you mean the NASCAR look?

    Phil referred to it as Lay-oh-pard blue which I don't know it's a holdover from pre RS days or if it reflects whatever is the actual business logo of Lay-oh-pard.

    ETA: noticed today that RS-L is listed as a Luxembourg team, makes me wonder if RS only agreed to keep giving them any $$ at all if they got to be listed first.

    Before the current setup, Leopard (and lay o pard is correct, not the animal) was the primary. Remember these jerseys that had virtually nothing on them? See the blue stripe?

    Not just the British. Celeste is the Italian word for sky blue.
