Fisherman jersey one of the worst

For Halloween this year, ESPN ran a top 10 list of the worst sports jerseys ever. Featured on the list was the Islanders' fisherman jersey from the 1990s - it was No. 8. I actually own one of these jerseys and have not put it on in over 10 years.


No one really knows why the organization chose the Gorton's fisherman as its mascot for those select group of seasons, but the chant "fishsticks" really stuck after that. Taking the top spot on ESPN's list was the Vancouver Canucks jersey from 1978-1985. There was a huge red and yellow V, for Vancouver, on the chest.
