NFL helmets reimagined by super design team

Ultimate Effects have reimagined football helmet designs for all 32 teams. The images below are via the Daily Snark. Go there now to see them all.

I have picked my own personal favorite for each team. No particular order. I would love to see the NFL upscale its image on the field even if it’s only with helmets to start with. No doubt they would have to hire someone to design uniforms that would suit these ambitious looks.

Let’s go!

The Cleveland Browns helmet is stylish but not as dramatic as a lot of the others. The one I love for them — referencing the Dog Pound — is the one below. Probably not going to see multi million dollar athletes playing in a helmet like this.

China’s ‘Friday Night Lights’: Chinese kids tackle American football

YAHOO NEWS — A pint-sized running back takes a handoff and scrambles across the goal line, spiking the football for a last-minute win. It could be any school field in America, but on a warm spring night in Beijing the star of the game is nine-year-old Lisa Li, one of the best players in China’s first American football youth league.

“I was so excited. Before I ran for the winning touchdown I thought to myself I just had to score,” Li said as her Eagles celebrated a come-from-behind 24-20 victory over the Sharklets.

Li plays running back and linebacker in the 16-team Future League run by GSG Sport, a Beijing company promoting America’s most popular game to parents seeking a new sport for children.

American football lags far behind soccer and basketball in China, but the huge potential market of 1.4 billion people has caught the attention of the National Football League.

This year’s Super Bowl championship was streamed live for the first time in China, where 1.5 million mostly young fans watch weekly NFL games on digital platforms.

Taking a page from American high school football, Future League games are held on Friday nights, complete with uniformed referees, cheering fans and a camera crew for post-game interviews.

OAKLAND, Calif. — Well, after all the gossip, speculation and hype it appears Marshawn Lynch will become an Oakland Raider.

I was so thankful when he left the NFL that Lynch retired in one piece, and that I was around to watch this remarkable athlete play.

Yet, how thrilling it will be to see the great man in action once again, and for the team he grew up dreaming about playing for.

Even though the American part of me is a Texas gal, I always loved the Raiders. They have some of the most devoted and craziest fans in professional football. What a joyful occasion for Oakland to have their great local hero joining the team.

I pray that all goes well for Marshawn Lynch. Yes Lawd!
