Often minor league teams will create special one-off jerseys to be worn on special occasions and holidays, such as Valentine's Day, Halloween, New Year's Eve and, of course, Christmas.
This year was no exception and the Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL have produced one of the most creative, well executed and effective specialty jerseys of all time.
Creative, in the way they incorporated the players head and hands into the design. Well executed, since they look great and effective, in that they made the players appear fat and slow, fooling their opponents on December 18th and 19th, the Idaho Steelheads, into thinking they were going to have an easy time of it, which produced a 4-1 win the first night followed by a 6-3 win on the second night for the Wranglers.
Here are a couple of pictures of today's featured jerseys, the Las Vegas Wranglers 2010-11 Christmas jerseys, in action, followed by some amazing video footage of Kael Mouillierat getting his ass kicked by Santa Claus. One can only hope the children in attendance were not traumatized by the scene of Santa Claus going Chuck Norris or were at least scared straight by the spectacle.
