Lord Help Us


To get you guys set for the All-Star weekend comes news that Alyssa Milano will be attending the festivities to launch a NHL version of her clothing line. Milano has a MLB line out called "Touch" that's targeted for female fans:

"I am really excited about (my) partnership with the National HockeyLeague," said Milano. "I am looking forward to giving female hockey fans fashion apparel as unique and special as the sport they love."--Canada.com


I've ranted at considerable length about the lack of non-offensive choices for female fan apparel offered by the NHL. Now, I might have absolutely gone crazy but I don't hate that shirt she's wearing and after doing some perusing, asides from this odd, confusing Kimono-type jersey, the line she has out for MLB really isn't bad at all.

So far I've just seen 2 All Star items. Can't say I like ANY of the MLB items for my team but I'm curious to see what she'll do.

Why the heck don't they go to an actual FAN who could come up with stuff people would wear instead of a token celebrity who may or may not really care about the sport? *jumps up and down and waves hands* It's almost enough to make me work up a series of designs and send them in, just to make a point.

I'm also a little pre-negative, because looking at Alyssa Milano, my guess is that she's going to design for her .5% body, not for that of the average woman. Hooray, size xxxxxl, here I come.

She might be thin, but I don't find her attractive at all, for the record. The clothes seem decent though.

Teka: Two words: Press Release. People aren't going to care about an average fan, but if you put someone with name recognition in....

Okay, so I'll ghost-design and she can still have all the credit....?
