When the Ottawa RedBlacks launch their full merchandise line, they'll find out if plaid is cool.

A plaid lumberjack look, one that their mascot will wear, could be a huge part of the RedBlacks' apparel line.

It will be wonderfully unique. Just imagine a couple of thousand fans wearing plaid in the stands.

Look for the merchandise, along with the team's home and away jerseys, to be trotted out sometime early in May, perhaps at a fashion show.
