New York Red (05-12-2013)
Loved the Los Rojos jerseys so much I bought one. I hope they wear them more.
Also loved the hats.
Not a fan, but not the guy whose gonna whine about it all day. If its kept it needs to be just Rojos.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13, 15
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
Yeah, has anyone explained the rationale for the "Los" in front of "Rojos"? I'm glad others have brought that up. I don't mind marketing to the growing Hispanic population. I don't mind "Rojos" and I actually thought the unis looked fairly sharp.
But "Los" Rojos? I think what they did was just copy what the NBA does with "El Heat" and "Los Bulls" and all that stuff. Again, no need for the first word. The Miami Heat don't put "The Heat" on their regular uniforms. The Bulls don't put "The Bulls." (Although, they should look into using DaBulls, that would be awesome.) And the Reds don't use "The Reds." So, why the "Los" for the Spanish uniforms? I don't get it.
The rest of it I actually get. But that small detail is very strange to me.

I think its just because Los sounds more Hispanic.
