Wranglers Will Wear Prison Sweaters

from Steve Silver of the Las Vegas Sun,

The publicity machine at the Las Vegas Wranglers has done it again.

The ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Calgary Flames will don prison-style uniforms to pay tribute to recently disgraced Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich on Jan. 30 against the Victoria Salmon Kings.

The Wranglers’ uniforms will feature broad, horizontal black and white stripes with mock prison numbers on the back of each jersey that begin with “ILLGOV” followed by the players’ actual number.

Following the game, the Las Vegas players will autograph their uniforms and auction them to the public to support the team’s various charities.
