Giants unveil new black alternate jersey
Jerry Seinfeld has famously said that cheering for a team is like rooting for laundry.
Well, Giants fans, your team has brand new laundry for you to cheer. Unveiled at Friday's media day, the team offered up a black a version of the 1980s throwback with the interlocking SF that they brought back in 2012:
The new alternates, which will be worn on select home games, are one of five the team will be wearing in 2015. Check out Joe Panik modeling all of them below. Sadly, he isn't wearing them all at once.

I mean, is this any weirder than these from last year?
3. Mo' hair Suit
The team could take a different tactic and walk out onto the field in the Hunter Pence hair uniforms. Really, there's very little difference between these and a mink coat other than having Giants splashed across the front.
4. The Wild National League West
In honor of Madison Bumgarner's 0.43 ERA in the World Series, for one very special game, why not come out wearing Bumgarner's chosen offseason attire? Which, based on the fact that he gifted his then-fiance a cow, is probably the same thing that an extra in a John Wayne film would wear:
