Jim Palmer’s beard

Recommended Posts

Is there some reason Palmer doesn't look at either guy he is working with on the broadcast during the pregame broadcast?

Brown seemingly cannot take his eyes off of Palmer when Palmer is talking, but Palmer never looks at whoever is his broadcast partner.

By the way, the bobblehead had Palmer in an all-orange uniform. When did the O's wear all-orange uniforms?

1974 or so?   Terrible look.  
 

Edit - 1971 when they had 4 20 game winners!  Google Orioles all orange uniforms and you’ll see what I mean.

First question....because Kevin Brown looks like the guy from Mad Magazine and Palmer is afraid he’ll bust out laughing if he looks at him while trying to talk?

Orange unis, 1971.

I don't much care for the black jerseys (other than as a reminder that the work week is over, but I'd like to see an all-black uni some day, like the New York Giants briefly wore early in the last century.

The black jerseys are okay, I hate the O's hat though.  Dunno why they'd miss an opportunity to wear an all black cartoon bird hat...or a black hat cartoon bird hat with an orange brim.

Two things wrong with the O's hat: it's ugly, and it uses the wrong apostrophe.

I have an Oklahoma State cap with a squarish O that is much, much nicer.

IIRC, they only used those uniforms once or twice.  

The uniforms came from a sporting goods store that Brooks owned.  Boog Powell hated them, made him look like a giant pumpkin.  A couple years later he had an all red uniform in Cleveland, and became the giant tomato instead.
