Fans love power rankings. As it turns out, you can pretty much power rank anything, even the jerseys worn by every last athlete in North America's major sports.
The list compiled all four uniform rankings from Paul Lukas' Uni Watch and formed them into one controversial list that is sure to spark at least some debate.
OK, most of you will flip over it.
As for the top five uniforms among MLB, the NFL, the NBA and the NHL, the St. Louis Cardinals reign supreme—at least for the initial throes of this all-inclusive ranking.
- St. Louis Cardinals
- Chicago Bears
- Montreal Canadiens
- Green Bay Packers
- Chicago Cubs
The bottom of the barrel is as follows:
118. Cincinnati Bengals
119. L.A. Kings
120. Minnesota Timberwolves
121. Sacramento Kings
122. Jacksonville Jaguars
We are guessing every last Cardinals fan will agree with Lukas' sentiment. That leaves the millions who claim other loyalties to scream, rant and rave accordingly.
The problem—or advantage if you care about sparking debate—is that uniforms are completely subjective. One man's Marlins is another's Celtics. Well, that analogy might work better if you familiarize yourself with the power ranking first.
Lukas explains what puts the Red Birds over the top:
MLB's best-looking team looks even better this season, thanks to the addition of that great retro-style alternate jersey, which is enough to nudge the Redbirds into the Power Rankings' top spot.
My favorite explanation has to be for the Carolina Panthers (No. 117) that garnered a, "Hahahahahahahaha," with a link to a report that the Panthers won NFL.com's contest for best uniform of all time.
Picking nits with the list, we might have the Lakers, the Yankees and the Tigers a bit higher with their classic look. Then again, this is just one man's taste, which is exactly why the power ranking is sure to garner a great deal of debate.
There are no wins or losses to help sort them out, just sartorial debate and color-scheme rants. Feel free to join in on all the inane fun.
