The Bullets, ergh.....I mean the Wizards unveiled the new jerseys/colors and overall logo if you didn't hear already. I must say, I came into the press conference thinking the jersey's would be bad and the colors would be off. I was so dead wrong. I could not have been happier to be wrong neither. The colors of course being red, white, and blue but with a darker blue. If anybody was following @WizardsExtreme on twitter, there was several pictures and postings about the new jersey's as it was being introduced (basically, follow @WizardsExtreme on twitter if you haven't already)
I would rant on and on about the jersey's but it does not do any justice to what these pictures show below.

Both Wizards General Manager Ernie Grunfeld and Owner Ted Leonsis both asked me personally of my thoughts of the color scheme and logo in general, and I couldn't lie to the guys. I was being honest when I told them both that I loved it. I was totally in shock and awe status when they unveiled them. I told them both also that I would love to see the Wizards to wear the red jersey's at home just like the Capitals. Who wouldn't love to see the Wizards Rock The Red at home! I guess it's just a Capitals thing.
I can honestly say that I can not wait to see the Wizards play next season (screw you NBA lockout).
Pros v.s Cons (of the new logo change)
Pro: The Wiz Kids will play with a swag
Con: When they lose, they will lose in style! (this can be a pro I guess)
Pro: Change is good
Con: Over cockiness (wouldn't that be great)
Pro: Jersey represents the change that is towards the future goal of a championship
Con: Jersey represents a change in marketing just to make $$$ and we don't win many games.
Pro: Start of a new dynasty
Con: New curse begins and we continue to lose
Either way, I think the pros over weigh the cons.
Here is video of myself asking Jordan Crawford, who is rocking the fresh red away jersey's:
