3. Chicago Bears, current alternate blue uniform

I like the look of the blue jersey and blue pants as an occasional alternate, more so than orange jersey on white or white on white uniform. Unfortunately, I think the Bears are winless in blue on blue...

10. Philadelphia Phillies' powder blue road uniforms, 1970s-1980s http://mlb.mlb.com/assets/images/2/0...8_hml12ytz.jpg

Purists probably hated that so many teams wore powder blue, but I started watching baseball in this era, so that's how I've always thought road uniforms should look like. The Phillies were one of the last teams to still have them.

A charming little town - the smallest of the state capitals, and the only one without a McDonald's! It does have a Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shop, though.

Visited the capital and the capitol. I was impressed by both. I also went to an In-n-Out Burger for the first time and was less impressed.
