The Cleveland Monsters may have created the best jerseys for 2021

The Cleveland Monsters know how to honor National Cookie Day.

The Cleveland Monsters know what’s up. While The Browns and Cavs tried to honor the past with their newest jerseys, The Guardians wore Little League World Series-inspired jerseys this year and the Cavs tried to embrace the Rock Hall with their 2020-2021 City Jerseys, it was the Cleveland Monsters that hit the home run.

Or scored a goal after a dekeing the defensemen and hitting a slap shot through the goalies five-hole. Hockey terms.

Whether you’re a big-time fan of hockey, a casual or didn’t even realize Cleveland had a professional hockey team, you’re going to want to check out their upcoming jerseys for their Dec. 4 matchup against the Milwaukee Admirals.

The Cleveland Monsters are going all out for National Cookie Day.

Combining the Cleveland Monsters and Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster is a stroke of genius and one that I wonder is actually being properly sanctioned. Regardless of if the ‘Street is signing off on the AHL’s Monsters subtle use of Cookie Monster as a way to promote the event and jerseys, it seems unlikely that they would try to stand in their way; as the Monsters are rolling out these jerseys as part of a charity fundraiser.

The jerseys will be auctioned off via the Monsters app with proceeds going to the A Special Wish Foundation. The event is also being done to help celebrate former Monster honorary roster member Ryan “Cookie” Kuchta. When Kuchta was just 12-years-old, he was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma and now, three years later, the Monsters are honoring the young man who is cancer-free.

So while the jerseys are neat, and who doesn’t love cookies, they serve a larger purpose. They’re going to be used to help fund an organization that is trying to do some good. That alone makes them the best jerseys of the year.
