Many of you have probably read Paul Lukas' "Uni Watch" feature on ESPN.com. But we're guessing a good number of you might take umbrage with two teams in the bottom 10 of his rankings of the best/worst uniforms among the 122 teams in the NBA, NFL, MLB and NHL.

Checking in at No. 119 -- the fourth-worst in all of pro sports -- are the Vikings. Writes Lukas: It didn't seem possible that this design could get any worse -- until they came out with that two-tone collar for this season.

And at No. 115, still in the bottom 10, the Timberwolves. Says Lukas: The Wolves' numbering and lettering have evolved over the years from illegible to semi-legible to childish, which only counts as progress if you think getting a D on your term paper is better than flunking out. Meanwhile, the uniform design has featured one useless gimmick after another (the "tree line" on the shorts, the odd collars, etc.). Instead of tweaking the same concept over and over, they need to go back to the drawing board and start from scratch, pronto.

This aggression, Paul. It will not stand, man.

Thanks to Jeff S. for the heads up.
